Very casual dining. The barbecue is amazing - so very tasty and always tender. The sides are also good - the pintos and rice are my personal favorite. Also love that it is in downtown Frederick - after shopping and sight seeing, this is a nice place to enjoy good food and drinks!

Went to the downtown Frederick location on a Friday Afternoon. Local parking is difficult and we ended up parking in the garage a few blocks away. BBQ pulled pork and beans were excellent. I really liked their original BBQ sauce but it isn't the typical type of sauce you would expect. The mac and cheese and coleslaw sides were just... More

When in Frederick, eating at the Black Hog is a must. Everything from the chopped pork to the Brisket and all the sides are delicious. My favorite were the Mac n' Cheese, Coke slaw and the fries!!! Oh yeah, and don't let me forget the corn bread!!! Absolutely phenomenal!!! I will continue coming back!!!

Avoid the suburban locations (they had no ribs on a Saturday night) and experience the crowded funky downtown location for the TRUE Black Hog experience, but get there early if you don't want to wait outdoors.

I've eaten at this restaurant numerous times and I've always enjoyed the food, the service and the beer options. They serve and excellent barbecue sandwich and their ribs are phenomenal.

We've been going there for years now. Great legit barbecue and fantastic special offers - we love the Tuesday night rib and wing deal in particular. Their other location offers the same menu and quality though we like the feel of the downtown Frederick store best.

We stopped into this restaurant later in the evening during a trip from Baltimore to Western Maryland. We arrived around 8:30, Tues pm. They were still busy enough without being overcrowded. It is kind of an open place, so one party's laughter and carrying on resonated through this smaller space, but otherwise it was a nice place. I had the... More

Cute but small restaurant in the heart of downtown Frederick. Get there early for a table, or opt for carry out. You won't be disappointed. The bbq was phenomenal. Perfect amount of heat, or you can jack it up with any one of the amazing sauces. Parking nearby was easy. Don't miss this joint!

Conveniently located close to Carroll Creek, Black Hog BBQ serves up something for everyone. Our server Emily took her time explaining things and was very attentive. We got the loaded fries ($6) with pork and bacon which they did not skimp on the meats. I had their 3 meat sandwich ($12) with the holiday sweet potatoes and my wife got... More

As Tennesseans, we take our bbq seriously, so we looked forward to this meal. Unfortunately, it was good, but not great. The ribs had been precooked, and just warmed up, the brisket was lacking in flavor other than the sauces put on. The beans tasted like they came from a can. Nice people, good service, but the Q is just... More
