The food is so good here! There are specials every day on the chalkboard as well as a regular menu. I always go for the fried shrimp and their delicious potato salad piled high in a cute little cup. On our last visit my husband chose a smoked chicken, apple and pecan salad from the daily specials. I had a... More

If you like country home cooked meals you'll love this place! Every time we go here the food and service are great. They always seem to have specials as well as the regular menu offerings.

HogsHead Cafe has become our go to place for barbecue when we drive through Virginia along the I95/295 corridor. This was our second visit for pulled pork and their famous Hog Dog. Yes, the place small but call ahead to reduce your wait. Good service, cold beer and savory BBQ sauces what more could you ask for? The Hog Dog... More

Went out for a meal as a couple and we were looking for casual BBQ and comfort food. HogsHead Cafe did not disappoint. Waitress was very friendly and basically told us everything on the menu is good. Well, don't know if it's true but everything we ordered was outstanding! We had the pulled pork plates with various sides and they... More

HogsHead Cafe seats only about 30 plus 4 more at bar. Tucked in small strip mall. There's no outdoor seating. If you have a party larger than 4 you won't be able to sit together, they don't move the tables otherwise they would block the aisle. We had a party of 6 so sat across from each other. Not a...

Party of four, Saturday lunch? We had oyster po'boy, pork BBQ, 1/2 pound burger, and pork BBQ. All were excellent. They don't take reservations so arrive early. Highly rated on Trip Advisor and deservedly so. We will be back.

First: You can call ahead of time and put your name on a waiting list - but don’t be late! Second: When you are driving off Broad St. onto Tanelorn Dr., there is a HUGE pothole on the city road that is about 2 ft wide and 3-4 inches deep – watch out! And now what you were waiting for:... More

The cafe is tucked into a small strip mall. My daughter and I ate there on a Wednesday night in July and there was quite a wait for tables. We sat at the small bar. The two waitresses were fast, efficient and lovely. They worked as a team to ensure customers were served as quickly as possible. I had a... More

Dined here with a group on a recent visit to the city. The restaurant is tucked away in a strip center of sorts next to another restaurant. Seating is limited but the tables turn relatively fast. Our group waited for about 30 minutes, but it was well worth the wait. I tried the "big boner", a hot dog wrapped in... More
