We've been many times and the food is consistently great. The side items are melt in your mouth goodness.

I like this place, mostly quite a bit. Service is always friendly, and the food is very consistent in quality and taste. A tinch expensive overall, though great selections - the burnt ends are excellent, the sausage very very good, the ribs almost as good...as my own, and a great and varied selection of very tasty side dishes. You cannot go wrong with Holy Hog.More

On the recommendation of friends, we tried Holy Hog BBQ on a recent visit to Tampa. The Hog is Tampa's local BBQ of choice, run by a family with long ties to the community. We were impressed with the quality of the meats and the...sides (the mac and cheese has won awards) and the service was friendly and professional. The setting is functional and casual as befits the menu. There are several locations around town. Worth a visit.More

My son had been asking about having Pulled Pork for dinner and we just didn't want to make it so I did a little search and found Holy Hog. We ordered a pound of Pulled Pork and some Brisket. The pulled pork was great -...a little dry but overall tasted great. My husband liked the brisket and mentioned we needed to go back.More

Anytime I travel the first thing I do is look for a good BBQ joint. My wife and I gave this place a try and really enjoyed it. Although it's a small place with limited indoor seating, they had ample clean and covered outdoor seating....This was no issue for us. The food was great and the portions were not bad either. We did spend a little more than we have in similar places elsewhere, but it wasn't too bad. I'd certainly recommend this place to anyone who loves BBQ.More

While in the area, I stopped here to get dinner. The staff was friendly and courteous. Since, I had to wait for my order, the staff offered me a free drink and something to eat to be able to snack while I waited on my...order. Once getting my order, the food was served hot, fresh, and delicious. I definitely would return to this establishment and recommend you giving it a try if you’re ever in the area.More

We went to Holy Hog this evening for dinner and tried to use one of their coupons. We were told the manager would not honor it even though it had not expired. She told us they had “this problem earlier.” Let’s see Holy Hog prints...the coupons with an expiration date and gets decide IF they’ll honor it. I think their “problem” is customer service. We took our business elsewhere, Five Guys to be exact.More

A few weeks ago, we went to the Holy Hog to get some food for the Superbowl. We were having over twelve or so people. The burnt ends and mac n' cheese were delicious!! Not to mention fantastic garlic bread. We really enjoyed the Holy...Hog and will one hundred percent go back to eat there. Amazing food, amazing service, and an all around amazing experience. We definitely recommend eating there!More

The food is fine but quite average. We had sausage, pulled pork, collard greens, sweet potatoes, and beans. The pork was a little dry and since I did not really care for any of the sauces, it stayed that way. Collard greens were spicy. Sweet...potatoes were like dessert. Most of the seating is outside with a few high top seats inside. You order and pay at the counter, collect your drink, condiments, and eating utensils. Food was delivered quickly. The staff was exceedingly helpful and went out of their way to make our first visit a good one. The food did not quite live up to their service.More

Mouth watering BBQ. Meat that falls off the bone. Locally & humbly owned and operated Holy Hog can't be beat. I've had BBQ from Charleston South Carolina to Sacramento CA. I don't know how he does it but this guy takes the cake on every...account. The only thing he's missing is a challange plate and he'd be the next thing on man vs food. Give it a shot, you can thank me later.More

Real American food: very good bbq taste food. We had the turkey, spicy sausage and pulled pork sandwiches. Outstanding! For only 7 dollars each rich moistened meat. On the tables a variety of sauces to complete the dish.
