Variety is the Spice of Life

We went here this past Saturday after a local auction, hungry for lunch. It was our 1st time but won't be our last. For a barbeque place, they've got a few options on their menu. I had the Memphis-style dry rub ribs (1/2 rack) plate, very meaty with just a little too much heat for me. With the... read more

We chose this restaurant due to other good reviews on TA. All were right on... The food was great and the BBQ sauces make it taste finger lick'n good. Prices are reasonable for amount of food you get, very generous portions. The only thing I would suggest is warm up the cornbread and mac and cheese. The food wasn't as... More

I've traveled many places.... This is one of the best BBQ places outside of Chicago. Jeff was nice enough to let me taste test before making a purchase. Way to go MD on the best hidden BBQ secret.

This is a good place. We've been here a couple of times. BBQ is amazing but prices could go down a bit. Drinks are delicious. Service is a bit slow but then again, they are always busy (at least when we come). We always need a take out box.

BBQ here is outstanding. The food is amazing, in portions you could be buried in. Smokey tang of the sauce makes you want to bring a bucket to take it home, and the sides are prime Southern cooking. If you eat only one meal in Frederick, make it here. The pulled pork sandwiches are phenomenal, and the BBQ ribs and... More

I've eaten a lot of barbecue in my lifetime starting in Alabama. Now, I guess every state has its way and I can appreciate all barbecue, but the pulled pork sandwich here was extra special as it reminded me of samwiches I had as a student at the University of Alabama. Soft white bread bun. Meat piled high and a... More

Our first visit we were unsure and had to ask if we should seat ourselves. We were pointed to a table where we waited for menus. The atmosphere is'nt fancy, the food is kind of pricey, but very good! The plate is VERY filling without the extras of the platter. The beans were great, the southern style greens are much... More

I sat at the small bar around 10 seats and ordered the BBQ Smoked Beef Brisket with fresh cut fries. . Very tender and tasted great. The lady tending bar was very nice and helpful.

The food was awesome. The barbeque I selected was very tasty. The one piece of chicken I got was a little undercooked and the wait staff immediately replaced it. The mac and cheese was awesome and the atmosphere is pleasant.

Having grown up in southeastern Va, it's hard to find NC style BBQ with that awesome tangy vinegar sauce but here it is in Frederick MD! Black Hog rocks!
