We've been going to this place since it opened and, the downside of it being so GOOD is that it's sometimes a bit hard to get into. The brisket is wonderful, the ribs are amazing (both wet and dry...and you can get them half-and-half on the same order, which I recommend), and there are members of my family who are... More

Not fancy inside, but the quality is outstanding. Black Hog was rated one of the top 100 cheap eats in the Greater D.C. area, although it is not cheap but reasonable for Frederick. I have friends from out of town who have gone there with me, and have gone back. Pretty much everything here is good, food is served cafeteria... More

I've been here many times and like the variety of servings of pork, brisket, and chicken, but now usually request to hold the sauce and seasoning on the meat, but serve it on the side. They do an excellent job in preparing the meal, but you know there are many varieties of BBQ and your taste may be a little... More

Family owned, we have been to the original two locations and loved both. Just great basic BBQ and sides with great service. Food is just great and served quickly. Just the right portion amounts, decent prices and a good atmosphere. Glad to see they have grown with another location now.

We have been to another location of Black Hog BBQ and it was absolutely wonderful. So after a day of grocery shopping we thought we would just go to the one right accosts the street from where we were. It was not so good. The food didn't even have the smokey BBQ taste. And the food was cold. We won't... More

Is the food okay? Sure. Do they smoke their own meat on site?Absolutely not, making it a reheat and eat BBQ place. This is why I struggle eating there. If you are looking for previously frozen heat and eat food you can spend your money here.

After reading all the rave reviews, we thought we were in for a fantastic treat. In reality, it's a small, good, not great, bbq place. Prices were pretty high for the meals, sides were small and basic. Greens were ok, cornbread was fine, coleslaw average. I wouldn't go out of my way to return here. Moderate size lunch plate $10.

Never been disappointed here! Cross between a pub and family-style restaurant. Dry rub on the ribs is what I normally get and is delicious. The wings and pork shoulder are good. Nearly all the sauces and rubs are on the sweeter side FYI. Sides are good - collard greens and Cole slaw are always fresh. Service is has always been... More

I though it was good BBQ. Good sauces, and the sides were also good. Reasonable prices. Parking sucked, but it was worth it to eat here.
