“Good Ribs, Good Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

I was pleasantly surprised that being near Baltimore I was able to find a more traditional barbecue place to eat instead of having to travel south or head to Texas :).

Overall I was happy with my experience. I ordered a full rack of ribs which were seasoned well in my opinion, and cooked well also (not quite fall off the bone, but easily picked clean from the bone). A little spice hidden in the sweet sauce that made it different from say, a larger chain restaurant's ribs. They also have more barbecue sauces to cater to different tastes.

It is a cool, laid back atmosphere and the service was good. They forgot to bring out one of my sides, but as soon as I let them know they made every effort to make it right.

Free parking next to/behind the restaurant, and a small cluster of tables for outdoor seating.

I would definitely go back to try something else. They also serve alcohol, which is always a plus :P

“Tasty BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Black Hog has some tasty BBQ. The sauces are delicious. Portions could be amped up a little though. Especially sides. Service is kind of blah. Very limited seating so you may want to consider carryout. Free parking beside the building so don't be put off by the downtown location.

“Cool atmosphere, not real impressed w/ BBQ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Went with my family and we all got sandwiches - pulled pork, brisket, chicken, etc. with various sides. Fries were good and sandwiches were decent, but we weren't overly impressed with the meat. The pulled pork was a bit dry and overly spicy.
