Very Good For Fast Food BBQ

It's an order-at-the-counter place with a sort of cafeteria ambiance, and very good for all of that. Food gets to you quick and there's an excellent selection of barbecue sauces. When you're just in the mood for some quick no-frills eats, Whole Hog will do the job for you.

Having been raised down south on BBQ it was with great delight that I found this place. Being a local I find myself getting a meal from here often. The pulled pork is fabulous! The ribs are great and the brisket is wonderful. There are large portions and the sides are perfect with all they serve. You also have a... More

Sliced brisket was probably the best I've ever had. My mother had the pork ribs and she said they were really good also. The potato salad was different but really good as were the baked beans. I would eat there again if I'm ever in Santa Fe.

We ate at another BBQ place at Santa Fe that was so terrible we couldn't eat it. Our waiter said he was from the Carolina's, and he agreed with us about how bad it was. He told us about Whole Hog, and he said their pulled pork was good. We went straight there, and he was right. It was the... More

Dry and very expensive, left hungry, went across the street to share a plate at the Cowgirl and the atmosphere was much more fun!

I love Mexican food, I particularly love New Mexico Mexican. But there are times that you just want something different. In Santa Fe, I highly recommend the Whole Hog Cafe. It's just down the street from the Train Station, & Visitor's Center. Try the pulled pork.

We were in Santa Fe for a meeting and were headed to what many said was the best Mexican food restaurant in the city. However it was raining and the walk was a bit far. Along the way, the rain increased so we stepped into a doorway and found ourselves in the Whole Hog Cafe. We decided to eat there.... More

Had the pulled pork, beef brisket plate and it was really tasty, as I was leaving I saw someone with the BBQ nachos and it looked awesome. Next time...

We dined here for the first time. The food was excellent. It's very casual but the food got out quick. Highly recommended.

Texas Barbecue in Durango was a hit with us. This place is on a par - perhaps better. Casual atmosphere, reasonable prices and - best of all - fantastic food. We won't return to Santa Fe without having dinner here.
