I had a pulled pork sandwich, and I can tell you it was hearty. They have the typical southern bbq with lots of options when it comes to sauce. The sides are rich and filling as well. If you’re in the mood for casual bbq,...More

Staff are super friendly, although service can be a bit slow. Ribs seem to be a popular choice, I usually opt for the salad with chicken on top. The salad would be enhanced with cornbread croutons.

Tried the beef brisket sandwich. Was not impressed. Meat was dry, not very flavorful. Sandwich was overstuffed, making it difficult to handle. There is better BBQ to be had.

First time there. A little pricey but great food. Had the Havana Smoked Sausage and Holy Hog Hot sauce which was great. Cole slaw had craisins which I loved. Will go back.

The BBQ is good, but nothing to write home about. The sides are where it's at! Fried okra was delicious, as well as the greens.

Established in 2010. Owner and founder Danny Hernandez was born into a family with a passion for food and excellence. After working in his family's Cuban-style restaurant in Tampa, Hernandez gravitated toward another genre close to his heart: the smoky flavors of barbecue. Determined to share it with the community he loved, Hernandez opened the first Holy Hog Barbecue in Tampa, offering authentic southern barbecue nuanced with Cuban flavors. Today, Holy Hog has grown to four locations in the Tampa Bay area. We're also thrilled to have two locations at Amalie Arena, home of the NHL's Tampa Bay Lightning and venue of choice for A-list performers and shows.
