My favorite BBQ place in Council Bluffs and they quit carrying burnt ends. Severely bummed out. They were the best!

I chose the two meat sandwich - ham and hot link. It was very good and I will return to try a different combination. The customer service was excellent!

Good BBQ for Council Bluffs. Very good service and fast. The atmosphere is very country. I would come back and get the brisket. The BBQ sauce was very good.

Great selection, very reasonable prices, sauce is outstanding. But get there early, they close at 8pm. LOL Try the watermelon iced tea.

Food is so good and the service is just the icing on the cake. One of the best I've been to. Brisket and burnt ends. Great combo

Maybe because of a Monday night but no one came in the store while I was there 6:30pm-7:15. Don't know why. Brisket and hot links were great!

Quality at a BBQ place can be a bit across the board, but I've found that I've never been disappointed at Hog Wild. The smoke and the sauce does't overpower the meat and the sides are all very good. Try the burnt ends. They're supposed...to be for a limited time only, but I hope they keep them on the menu permanently. A hearty meal in itself is one of their loaded baked potatoes with meat.More

The meat is pretty good here, I'm partial to the brisket, the wife is partial to the turkey. The sides though seem to uniformly underwhelm. The flavor and texture for them is just not that impressive, especially for the cost. Tried the "Burnt Ends" this...week, and was really disappointed, as they just seemed to be a quarter pound serving of the brisket. I get the loaded potatoes for the best value, and for filling out a meal without the sub par sides. And the close at 8pm, so there is not an option when I am running late from work.More

Wow, what a pleasant surprise from a "chain"! Best ribs we have had anywhere. We will be back often as family is nearby. Staff was wonderful as well. Thanks!
