Our first visit here based on someone's recommendation. Four people in our party. We had ribs, hog tails, chicken, pulled pork, reg fries, sweet potato fries, cornbread, jalapeño Mac and cheese, and Cajun corn. Everything was plentiful and delicious. Highly recommend.

This has become our "go to" place while in Waterloo-the only reason I don't rank it as excellent is because at least 50% of the time when we come, they are out of brisket. I understand why, as its awesome, but better supply management please!! We come about once a month, always on a Saturday night about 6:30-7. The only item we didn't enjoy is the pig tails-to dry for our taste. But other then that, we have never had a bad meal, have enjoyed everything we have ever ordered and the brisket is by far our favorite. Moist and flavorful, we ask them to go easy on the bbq sauce because the meat itself is so flavorful! Onion rings to start, brisket with collard greens and cheesy grits, washed down with REAL housemade unsweeetened ice tea!!!

Small, attentive service. Good quality food prepared on site. The owner knows what he is doing - and has won deserved awards for his "Q. Dishes are "southern: - not N or S Carolina, Kansas, or Texas - but tomato-based sauces, smokey, tender - especially the brisket.

Decent sides - although okra would be a welcome addion - currently missing.

I wanted to try Hog Tails since I'd heard it is under a new owner as of this spring. We arrived around 5:30 on a Friday night and the place was busy with take out orders but we were able to get a table right away. We ordered the catfish special with fries and coleslaw, which was excellent, and the rhubarb sangria. The waitress recommended the sangria and we weren't disappointed - it was light and crisp tasting, not too sweet, and very refreshing. The fish and fries were crisp and good, not too heavy and greasy - the best fish and chips I've had in a long time. They came with a nice coleslaw and a flavorful sauce, as well as the usual choices of ketchup and vinegar. The meal came in at about $40 for two of us, before tip. By the time we left people were waiting for a table. Service was friendly. I'd definitely go back.

Tried it once and was hooked great sauce that you can even take home. Try the nachos with pulled chicken. Was not sure I would like it but one taste and now we get it every time.
