Great BBQ

Tasty BBQ that is tender and moist even before adding a sauce. Excellent choices of sides such as corn pudding and Southern greens. There is a board with the daily specials and the sides for the day.The service was very good too. This is a small set-up, and the seating area is tight. People are... read more

Had the pulled pork for lunch. Food was cooked perfectly and their sweet and tangy sauce is delicious. The squash casserole is the best I've ever had. Must go while in Richmond

of the portion size of the HogsHead Wings! Expecting the usual, smaller drumettes - I was WOW'd wit the sheer size (and tasty zing!) of the fiery hog wings. Yes -- they were indeed fiery, but heat I can handle....the size of the sampler I ordered -- I could not! So, be warned of the portion sizes of those two... More

This is barbecue (and other comfort food) to die for. The Hog Dog is the best hot dog meal out there. My personal favorite, The Hogshead Special, is the ideal pork bbq sandwich. When I'm particularly hungry, or just want to indulge, there's the Hog Burger which is enough to fill you up twice. If I had to pick a... More

My wife and I went went another couple to Hogshead Cafe tonight for dinner. I had the pulled pork sandwich with sweet potato fries and my wife had the Cuban sandwich with sweet potato fries. Both were excellent dishes. They have a good assortment of beers and also had Bold Rock cider which we both like. The pork was well... More

This restaurant was recommended by a co-worker. I ordered the Hog Dog that has bacon wrapped around a hot dog topped with pulled pork and cole slaw. The hot dog was huge and could be shared by two people. I added a sweet sauce that was on the table to the top of the hot dog. The pulled pork was... More

This was our second visit and happy to say food and service continue to be excellent. This trip we tried the steak and cheese and oyster poor boy sandwiches - both very tasty and ample quantity. The sweet potato fries are excellent; loved the dipping sauce they come with. Onion rings are very good as well. This is a small,... More

This unpretentious cafe just off Broad Street serves excellent barbeque dishes and sandwiches. We got there shortly before Noon and the restaurant, which has limited seating capacity, was virtually full. We found out why. The sandwiches, fired green tomatoes, and hush puppies were first rate. The service was also very good. This is a nice place for lunch.
