So glad we found Hogshead Cafe on TripAdvisor, the food was amazing! We went during lunch time so the tables were all full and we sat at the bar. Which was fine with us because the ladies working that day were very friendly and a lot of fun to talk to! I also think they could have the best Lemon... More

The sweet and tangy BBQ sauce was outstanding but not overwhelming. Just the right amount of food and prepared perfectly. I will absokutely return if i am ever back in... More

This restaurant is a must if you are in the Richmond area. The pulled pork is some of the best I have ever had. The service is friendly and the portions are good. They also serve fresh squeezed lime-aide, get the quart jar size.

Three of the four of us really enjoyed our meal. The fourth person just doesn't like this type of food. We thoroughly enjoyed the flavor and seasonings of the food; they do a superb job as far as these foods are concerned. The pork is flavorful and I will have to say, the Cuban sandwich was amazing! I want to... More

I love this place for lunch. Seating is limited but worth the hassle. I'd like to see them expand but don't want to see the quality of the food diminish.

Stopped by from Savannah, Ga. to NJ. Quaint place. Nothing special inside. Ordered Pulled Pork and slaw. Large portion of pork. Clean pork meaning no grissle, joint bone or joint meat. Not really spiced or cooked with vinegar like NC BBQ but tasty. Added their sauce. Average not eye popping but I ate it all. Slaw was finely chopped served... More

BLUF: Decent food, decent prices, the fresh-squeezed limeade is a must I came into Hog’s Head on a Friday night and it was packed. Luckily I was alone, because the only seating available was a single stool up at the counter (they have about 6 stools up there). Sitting up front also worked to my benefit, because otherwise I wouldn’t... More

Just stopped for lunch and wished I could have come back for lobster or brisket dinner. Had the baby back ribs which apparently are smoked overnight along with onion rings and Caesar salad.... delightful! My companion had smoked pulled chicken and coleslaw - perfect - in fact more than enough to take home the remaining treats for dinner at home!... More
