While sight seeing in Santa Fe, we selected this place for lunch. We each had a baked potato stuffed with pulled pork. The pulled pork was especially good on the potatoes (in Texas, a stuffed potato usually comes with chopped brisket). The unique feature was the ability to choose from six different BBQ sauces found at each table.

We couldn't go to a restaurant across the street because it was closed for a gas leak. So, we decided to try the Whole Hog. Being from Texas, we are somewhat wary of BBQ elsewhere. But, when we opened the door, a tangy, strong aroma hit our noses. It's an informal, rather plain place, with a stand-up counter for ordering.... More

If you like good BBQ brisket, this is the place to go. We've found ordering brisket is often risky -- all too often lots of fat and gristle -- but the brisket we had at Whole Hog was great! The food was delicious, servings were very generous and the help pleasant and courteous. Especially liked that there is a selection... More

For my frequent visits to Santa Fe, I wish I had found this good BBQ place sooner. I think many of the locals at Santa Fe have never had the pleasure of enjoying really good BBQ. I say that after seeing some of the good reviews they've written for another BBQ place on the same street that has mediocre to... More

We bought a load of ribs for take-out the other day. The #2 sauce is traditional and not sweet. There are six sauce choices in all - something for everyone. Across the street from Cowgirl on Guadalupe, a small parking lot alleviates the problems for either dining in, or picking up. Either way, you will enjoy this Memphis style flavor... More

Food was OK. Not the best BBQ I've ever had but not the worst either. I felt like you got a lot of food for your money and the salad was green and crisp. The selection of sauces is cool and makes for fun meal time experiments. I will say that if you come here, get the ribs they're great!

Good barbecue in the home of burritos and enchiladas. Six tasty sauces to chose from. I like the pulled pork but they also have beef and chicken and ribs. Give it a try for something different.

If you like barbeque, this is the place to get it in Santa Fe......they also have takeout and will provide all the makings for a party in your home.......my favorites are the pulled pork, briskit, baked beans, potato salad and the variety of barbeque sauces from mild to spicy......the ribs are excellent when eaten at the restaurant, but I found...

If you love meat and want to have lots of it then dine here. And by far the baby back ribs are the featured dish on the menu. You can purchase a six pack of barbecue sauce variety of flavors to take home in handy squeeze bottles. I agree with the other reviewers. The service is quick and all the... More
