“Eat here EVERY TIME I am in LA County!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Their brisket is famous and they have been in business there since 1969. Have to be doing MUCH MORE than a little right to last that long in the restaurant business in a changing neighborhood! Very friendly staff. Large portions. Fantastic side dishes. Amazing BBQ sauce (regular or hot). Been going here probably six times a year since 1995 when I discovered it!! Bring back $1000 worth of BBQ a year when I drive down to LA from the SF Bay Area instead of fly....and make a lot of friends very happy!

“Bar-b-q Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

The Best Brisket you will EVER taste!!! I have been going to this place since I was a child in the early 90's. It has become a family tradition to have Hogly Wogly's, while my father is in town. He has been going there since the 80's.
The brisket dinner is to die for! I love the baked beans and the potato salad, and you have to have the loaf bread. This place has an impeccable taste, something you can't find at any other bar-b-q place.
It's a small restaurant, but that is just all part of the experience and charm. They have been at the same location for years. Defiantly a secret gem.
You must try the briske dinner!!

“Steakhouse? Yeah baby, bring it on.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Second visit in six months. Exceptional good steakhouse. Had plucked pork, ribs and briskets. Was very, very good. One small thing, they bring all your food in one bowl which is saturated with the juice of the cooking which then leads to same kind of flavour . Tell them to go easy on it. Their own BBQ sauce is good. Service is very friendly. All in all a very good place to go for BBQ.

“Ain't fancy and ain't bad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Been a while since we visited Hogly Wogly's. Nothing's changed. Interior still dark...servers still friendly and the food still worthwhile. The place hasn't wowed my wife in the past, but this time she gave the pork ribs a thumbs up. I tried the pulled pork sandwich...messy buy decent. The spice bbq sauce provided a pleasant kick. The potato salad is average, and can't say much for the cole slaw. Pretty good pecan pie. If you want fancy, go to Wood's. This place is a dive, what a bbq joint should look like. Sampled other barbecue in the Valley and I keep coming back here. The parking can be discouraging, but this place is worth a try for bbq lovers.

“Hidden Gem Of BBQ In The Valley”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Amazing!!!!! I don't care what anyone says this place is fire!! Iv seen a few bad reviews for this place & I urgeee those who had a bad experience to try it again, it must have been a fluke. The beef brisket LITERALLY falls apart when you touch it.....the sides are too die forrr!!! Baked beans have pulled pork in it which adds a great addition and the potatoe salad is one of the best iv ever had. I will alwayssss come here to satisfy my BBQ fix. Any friends that come from out of town i take them here and they always fall in love.

People have mixed reviews about this hole in the wall BBQ spot...but this isnt a hole its a diamond in the rough!! The amount of meat you get for the price is amazing. Couldnt ask for a better spot so close to home.
