Don't let the outside fool you. This place has excellent BBQ!! Pecan wood smoked meats and fish, just the right amount of smoke on the meat and so tender. The family platter we order for 3 people had 4 meats, 4 sides and corn muffins. We could have fed another 2 people. There was plenty of food! The ribs were... More

I place an order to go and got the Popcorn Pig, Catfish Platter and the Peach Cobbler. I loved the Popcorn Pig, make sure to get the hot BBQ sauce it's amazing. I got the Catfish Platter with hush puppies and mashed potatoes on the side. The catfish was a bit salty, the hush puppies are huge, and the potatoes... More

It would be so easy to overlook this or pass on it because there really isn't any curb appeal. If you like bbq, though, that would be a mistake. I ordered the tips and a garden side salad. The tips are an appetizer and the size was a surprise. Half came home with the other half of the big salad.... More

We saw this place featured on a local PBS TV food show. It looked interesting so we gave it a try. We were not disappointed. The menu features BBQ and Tex Mex fare. Our group all ordered BBQ and everyone went home very happy. The ribs were fall off the bone tender. Pulled pork sandwiches were flavorful and not dried... More

For a former resident of suburban Atlanta, the Hammered Hog offered good, quality BBQ that is often hard to find outside the southeast. The inside of the restaurant reminded the family of a few former places we'd visit when living in Georgia, including the inviting smells from their slow cookers. The pulled pork street tacos are excellent. Very authentic to... More

My mouth was set for smoked brisket and pork rib tips ... the fact is I got what looked like shredded beef or maybe pork and the rib tips lack bones, my wife had shredded pork, her words where "so-so" ; however"; the sides were good. The cornbread came from a mini-muffin pan was dry and the butter was a... More

Went for lunch and had the special which was a Pulled Pork sandwich with Cole Slaw. It was very good. Also had excellent fries. Lots of TVs with different sports showing. Good selection of beers and menu has many choices. Free breakfast on weekends if you buy any drink! How can you beat that?

The atmosphere is casual with TV's on the wall. Specials are posted on blackboards and they are worth checking out. Food is inexpensive and senior specials on Wednesday are 2 for 1. Saturday and Sunday mornings feature a free breakfast with the order of full price drinks. Service is not fast but it is friendly. There is a happy hour.
