While looking for a new place to eat on Friday nite, wife and I visited the Black Hog BBQ restaurant in the Market Square, Frederick, MD. Enjoyed it very much and plan to return. They were busy but the line moved speedily. You order at the counter and carry food to your table. Several meats were available including brisket, pulled... More

If you like tough, chewy, dried out BBQ then you will love this place. Their pulled pork is good, but there are others which are MUCH better, even the chain Famous Dave's has this place beat by a mile. And I have NO connection with any restaurant.

I was visiting from Texas and was pleased to find excellent BBQ at Black Hog. The beef brisket was thick and moist and the bun for the sandwich was like an egg bread - not a traditional hamburger bun. The portion of meat was very generous, but the sides are a little on the small side. Otherwise, great place to... More

Wow!!! The bbq is simple back to the basics but dang is it tasty!! They offer styles from many regions of the country - Carolina, Memphis, Kansas City, Saint Louis, and Texas - but of all we tasted they were really really good. In our party, we had the ribs (Kansas City), beef brisket, Carolina bbq, Arkansas beef (burnt ends)... More

This restaurant really lives up to its reputation. Not only was the food fantastic, the service was very friendly and attentive. When we asked what Arkansas beef was (we'd never heard of it) the server brought us several samples. Our party of 8 tried almost everything on the menu, chicken, pulled pork, Arkansas beef, ribs, chili, pit ham and burgers.... More

Very good BBQ. They have 3 locations (Frederick, Urbana, and North Frederick) Their meats and sides are much better than most BBQ places in Maryland and Virginia. I tend to go for the 2 meat special with 2 sides. That is a ton of food. The service is also very quick.

We are frequently surprised by the variations on the BBQ theme. Ruth is from Kansas City and considers herself an expert. I just like good BBQ. We were both favorably impressed with the Carolina style BBQ here at Black Hog. Food was very good and the service was excellent. Highly recommended

Carolina style chopped BBQ with vinegar sauce is fabulous. Get the sides of Mac n' cheese and the greens. Greens are spicy and vinegary as well! Food is served quickly by friendly staff for a reasonable cost. Of the three restaurants, this location, the original is the best.
