I love the hog heaven, but I have yet to have anything bad from here. I always buy their rub or sauce when I go there too.

Really good meats and fries. Great sauce just spicy enough. Long waits at lunch so call ahead and just walk by and pick it up.

Super delish sandwich! They give you enough fries for your group! The line is long, but moves fast. They have a system that works although I wasn't sure it should haha Great food & worth a trip if ever in the area.

Quickly becoming the waiting line to be seen in, it's worth every minute of the wait. Or.....the locals know that you call in your order, and pick it up on the West side, to avoid the lines.

I disagree with many of the previous reviewers who said that the line moves fast. We were there on a late Saturday afternoon, and although the wait outside the door was not that long, the total wait until ordering was close to an hour. But once getting inside you can take in the ambiance that is eating inside a gas... More
