But things move pretty quickly and the food was well worth it! Had the Hog burger, which my wife and I shared. Big and tasty. Small beer selection and, of course, excellent sweet tea!

Great food, great service by Jennifer, fantastic local beer! We will go back every time we visit our son in Richmond! Loved the trivial pursuit cards on the table. Great way to pass time while waiting for the food!

Since they had received such great reviews, I had to try them. However, they are not in downtown Richmond. It took about 20 minutes to get to their location from downtown which is not what I expected after seeing them as a Richmond restaurant. The restaurant is actually super small and best suited for carry out. The food was good... More

We are in Richmond for the first time on a fact finding trip to see if this might be a great place for us to move. We had to try Hogsheads since it was #1 on Trip Advisor. Our AirBnB host had never heard of it. It is out in the burbs but worth the drive! We waited about 15... More

It's good, son!!! Came across this place with the hubs on the way, so stoked we did. Their she crab soup was on par with some I had in South Carolina. Their bbq is so moist and juicy! Sides and desserts were amazing! Our waitress Ryan was awesome! I would drive 2 hours just to eat here again.

Ate lunch with wife and son in law while visiting Richmond. The place is tucked away in a small shopping plaza, you may miss it if you were not specifically looking for it or have a gps. The cafe is a small place, I would say would seat somewhere between 30-40 max, perhaps more, but not much. Greeted and seated... More

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

I really enjoyed my lunch here. I ordered the pulled pork special sandwich, which came with beans and slaw. the pulled pprk was dry smoked, very tender and very flavorful. 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
