Went there last night at 5:00 pm and I was the only one there. The brisket sandwich was dry and tough. Value was poor. Would not go there again. Where's a Rudy's when you need one!

The only meat on which I can opine is the pulled pork; it is so good that I haven't been able to pull myself away and try something else! Beans are also quite good, though a bit too sweet for my taste.

The only reason I didn't give Whole Hog in Santa Fe, NM five (5) stars is because their Volcano sauce didn't come with a warning! I've eaten at WHole Hog several times and I can honestly say that as far as pulled pork goes, they have it down to a succulent science. I always opt for the jumbo with the... More

I went here for lunch today on my family trip with my parents & was amazed at how delicious their food is. Since the three of us were not overly hungry we decided to split the Whole Hog Platter which includes 3 Ribs, 4oz of Pulled Pork, 4oz of Sliced Brisket, Potato Salad, Cole Slaw, Baked Beans, & Dinner Rolls....

My husband and I enjoyed our lunch here very much. The meat on our sandwiches (brisket and pulled pork) was tender and juicy with very little fat. Loved having a choice of six sauces at the table (#3 was our favorite). The sides of coleslaw and baked beans were yummy, too. Friendly service, good value, and free parking in the... More

I have a smoker so do a lot of meat, chicken, and fish. I am always looking at new experiences with barbecue restaurants especially sauces. We had are food delivered. I would place the Whole Hog Cafe as average.The ribs were very good. I felt the sauces had a lot of vinegar flavor versus a more sweet flavor which I... More

We were gong to a well known place just down the street but they had an hour waiting line. So went into Whole Hog on a whim, glad we did! They cook their meats fresh daily and frequently run out. Tonight they had served their last chicken and sausage by the time we arrived at 7:30. We had their "regular"... More

I stopped in for lunch today and I had quick service, professional service and food came out fast. The pulled pork was some of the best I ever had. Quality food for a real good price.

It's hard to find authentic, good bbq. Even the place across the street from Whole Hog fails in comparison. Though the ribs and the sides don't measure up, the brisket and the pulled pork are not to be missed. I'm delighted that the meat is sold à la carte, and like to stop in for a pound of take-out any... More

Got take out brisket for party. It was very good but not great for the price. BBQ sauces are very good and they give you several with take out. I think ribs are better.
