“A roadside gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

A roadside gem along highway 97. We were wanting something pedestrian and affordable after spending a fortune on bottles of wine and gourmet meals at wineries. Hammer's House of Hog perfectly fit the bill. Between the two of us we shared a pulled pork sandwich and a beef brisket. Both were barbecued to perfection: great meat crust, tender flaky meat and nice smoky flavour without being overwhelming. We had a choice of homemade sauces. We had a vinegar based sauce on the brisket and a mayo based sauce on the pulled pork. They were both perfect compliments to the meats. The sandwiches were totally satisfying. We will be back year after year for sure.

“Okanagan Barbeque”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

I was in Oliver, BC on business and had stopped in to visit a friend. He suggested that if I wanted to grab some great eats before hitting the road to try out Hammer's House of Hog. Well, that was a great suggestion! It is basically a little house on wheels right on Highway 97 in Oliver. As I pulled up I could see the barbeques smoking away cooking meat for the next day. The owner was friendly, and the service quick. Hours of operation were 11:00 AM until "Sold Out"! I had the barbeque brisket on a bun with the slaw. It was very tasty. As I sat at the picnic table in the shade of umbrella enjoying the food, and the views of he Golden Mile, I thought this will be a must stop from now on! Make sure you check it out.

“Can't wait for spring”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Can't wait for spring when Hammer is back at his location. The pulled pork is awesome. The rib tips are great and the beans are enjoyable

“Yummy pulled pork on side of road”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012 via mobile

BBQ hut on side of road. We were drawn to it by the look of it. Great pulled pork with a cool selection of house made sauces. Only suggestion would be to serve a side of fries with the sandwich.
