We visited Black Hog BBQ on a recent trip to Frederick. The service was great and the food was even better. Ordered the 2-meat platter with Beef Brisket, Arkansas Beef, mac & cheese. Both beefs were tender and tasty! Platter also came with coleslaw and cornbread. Two of us shared the platter, but... read more

Stopped in for lunch during a road trip. Great BBQ with choices of ribs, chicken, Carolina pulled pork and Texas brisket. We had to wait on our "sides," as they had run out and were making more. Surprising, since the lunch hour wasn't quite over. But they were delicious and they even took one off the bill to apologize for... More

You want superb beef BBQ? Check. Outstanding pulled pork? They got that. Excellent smoked chicken? Heck yeah! They have St. Louis-style ribs, Texas-style smoked brisket, Carolina-style chopped pork, Memphis-style dry, and Kansas-style wet toppings -- all of which are delicious. The Black Hog has become the standard to which my wife and I judge all other BBQ establishments... and find... More

I eat here with some regularity, as it is the BEST BARBECUE IN FREDERICK. what more can I say. French fries are also excellent. I'm partial to the brisket, but will eat anything they have! (haven't ventured outside the barbecue items)

The first time I visited this restaurant, I would have rated it 5 stars. The past three visits, however, have been increasingly disappointing. The service is spotty, sometimes taking up to 15 minutes to get it, and other times sterling. (I have found this with many restaurants when I dine solo). But the food is really where it starts to...

I met two friends I hadn't seen in a long while here and it was the first visit for each of us. Having free off-street parking in a downtown area is a bonus. The place was very casual, clean, simple and smart decor and great older rock music playing at just the right volume. We wanted to catch up over... More
