“Great Place for Saturday Afternoon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

I happened to be in Frederick for business and looked on Trip advisor to find a good place to eat. I was thrilled to see a BBQ place in the top of the restaurant listings so I thought why not.

Lets say the place was packed @ almost 2pm on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. I managed to grab a seat at the bar which worked out perfect. The bartender BJ was on top of his game, was a pleasure watching him work helping everyone around the bar and handling all the drink orders. I asked what was good and he gave me the standard reply, "everything" with one exception he was right !. I tried the wings, a 3 meat platter and 1/2 rack of ribs(split wet and dry). The food was great the dry rub was fantastic on the wings and equally as good on the ribs. The wet BBQ sauce for the ribs was a Kanas City style but not overly sweet.

I tried the brisket, pulled pork and KC style meet, which was like small cubes of beef marinated.. everything was awesome. Those of you who know BBQ know already that this was way too much food for one person to finish however, I did manage to put a good dent in the platters.

The place was busy but the wait isn't long. If your in Frederick or close make you way here.. you'll thank me later and BTW say hello to BJ behind the bar. Tell em Ravin sent you

“Great BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

Love Black Hog. Had the pulled pork meal with mac n cheese and enjoyed it all.

Portions on the "sides" are pretty small for the price, but almost make up for it with quality taste. Good beer selection (all in can/bottle).

Patio for outdoor seating would be perfect on a nice day.

“Excellent food ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

Excellent menu and service. I had the Carolina BBQ and it was excellent. Sweet potato sides were mire like dessert than a side dish! Reasonably priced. Overall a great experience.

“Black Hog BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

If you want great BBQ, the Black Hog is the place. The service was good and the food was great. It was a little noisy. But would go back. Just do not plan on a lunch / dinner with a lot of conversation.

“Great BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Even though Frederick was packed, we got a seat quickly and really good service. The pulled pork sandwiches were delicious as were the sides we ordered. The sandwiches were very generous so sadly there wasn't room for pie! A great place to eat in Frederick.
