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

Parking tight, but food good in a relaxed atmosphere. Not many tables. Portions heavy and staff friendly. Across from Cowgirl, a yuppie bar that is supposed to be 'country', without the boots and hats.

We like BBQ and after eating at Cowgirl BBQ across the street the night before, we had BBQ again for lunch. This seems to be more of a take out place but there are tables where you can sit and have your meal.. The Brisket and Pork were both good and the baked beans were excellent

After explaining this was our first time at Whole Hog Cafe, the clerk briefly explained the menu posted up on a big... More

My trips to Santa Fe usually including overloading myself on Green Chiles. Well, that happened this trip, too, and for dinner tonight I needed an alternative. I found Whole Hog Cafe. I was not counting on much from a Santa Fe BBQ joint. Luckily I was very surprised! Service was friendly and the atmosphere felt like a typical BBQ joint.... More

I had never seen the signs out front of the cafe, although I must have walked by it many times without noticing it. But while staying at a friend's house during my recent trip, he suggested we get BBQ to go from Whole Hog. We got pulled pork, slaw and potato salad with the # 2 BBQ sauce that is... More

This old favorite is right near the rail yard and shopping area. Pork, chicken and brisket are well cooked and there are degrees of so iciness to the variety of sauces available, sandwich or plate, all is good!
