Best BBQ This Side of Kansas City

Whole Hog Cafe offers the best BBQ this side of Kansas City. I give the ribs a B+ and the pulled pork a solid A. Favorite side items include Whole Hog's coleslaw, potato salad and the barbecue baked beans . Diners place their orders at the front counter and servers bring each meal to the dining... read more

My wife and I eat barbecue all over the country and let me just say that we NEVER miss a chance to stop by Whole Hog whenever we are in Sante Fe. I compete, judge and like I said,EAT barbecue regularly. Hats off to Whole Hog! You folks always get it right! Charles Gracia, postmaster and member of Pacific Northwest... More

Delicious BBQ and great sides. The meat is always moist and perfectly cooked. They have 6 different homemade BBQ sauces; I always try all 6 and can never decide which one I like the best. Prices are reasonable and atmosphere is casual. I usually stop in here every time I visit Santa Fe. Very conveniently located on Guadalupe Street, amongst... More

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

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

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.

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
