We ordered the Ultimate Platter (ribs, pulled pork, beef brisket, pulled chicken, beans, slaw, and potato salad, and 2 dinner rolls) for take out dinner.

I actually was already seated in the Cow Girl Cafe... Service was slow... and I looked out the window and saw the sign accross the street "Whole Hog Cafe..." I observed Highway Patrol Officers coming and going... and thought to myself... this must be a good sign... I got up, walked across the street... ordered the Pulled Pork Sandwich... and... More

This is our "go to" place when taking food to friends' for a pot-luck dinner. The brisket can be a little dry, but the ribs and sausages are excellent. We always enhance the sides - mustard or horseradish mixed into the potato salad; toasted almonds, raisins and shredded coconut mixed into the cole slaw. While the BBQ may not be... More

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!
