Want a great meal...hot and delivered to your table within minutes of ordering? This is the place. I've been a regular since it opened in downtown Frederick and am excited that they've recently opened a second location (although I've not been there yet). The restaurant is small and so parking can be challenging, but the service is excellent. Prices are... More

The Black Hog BBQ is just down the street from me. They have good ribs and great mac and cheese. I usually get a carry out. The people who work there are great. The place is always crowarded but the service is good. The BBQ chicken and corn bread is also good.

This is a small place (downtown Frederick location) which can be filled to capacity on Friday and Saturday during the dinner rush. The decor is casual, but nice with some iridescent tile and dark, cozy feel. There is a bar. The food is served on paper, very casual. You choose your bar-b- que style, and type of sauce. If you...

One of the best local places to get good BBQ. Prices are about what you would expect, and servers are friendly and helpful. Have been back several times.

Get take-out a lot as restaurant tends to be a bit loud. Staff at counter and in restaurant are always warm and friendly. Had the "special" Tuesday - rack of ribs, beans and cornbread for $15. I had Kansas City wet, husband had dry rub. Mine were a bit well-done/crispy which is unusual as most times are perfect. Have had... More

Love Love Love this place! Been here a few times now and it is always over the top good! My favorite meal here is the brisket sandwich with a side of mac and cheese but my husband claims the pulled pork is to die for...Came in early on a Monday around 11:30 and there were just a few other tables....

Passed by the Black Hog bbq a few times on my way to another restaurant. I finally got to go inside on a Saturday afternoon to sample the food. The waitress was very friendly and professional and suggested a combo platter and sides. This way I was covering all bases to sample all I wanted to try. It was a... More

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.
