“Yummy lunch”
Reviewed November 12, 2013 via mobile

Had a great lunch with family. They have a great lunch special! I especially enjoyed the corn bread and cole slaw!! Most food is gluten free which was especially helpful for my aunt. The wife's owner served us and she was very sweet and helpful. I would def go back again!!

“poor”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

Wife had seen good reviews on this eaterie and we were expecting much more.
Virtually empty when we arrived but put this down to the time ..2.30pm but I think we were wrong.
Menu looked ok and when we asked if they sold beer, they did not but had a byob policy ..you could bring in your own wine or beer but they charged $1 corkage for every glass and they held the wine so that you were not allowed more than 2 glasses each!..and only 125 mil glasses.
Normally a bottle would hold 6 glasses so if there were 2 of you and you had 2 glasses each what was to happen to the other 2 glasses seeing the bottle had been opened?
Anyway the food came and it was disappointing, I ordered an $11 main course and it was pulled pork on a bun! You get bigger portions in macdonalds ..my wifes (meal?) Was no better
At the end, we got the bill ..and for the first time ever ..I was asked if a wanted the change back!
Spoke to receptionist at hotel about this and she said its better to order the meat and take it away to eat.
Enough said I would avoid.

“Great BBQ and Nice Atmosphere”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Eat here for the food. It's a very quaint little spot in Downtown Wickenburg. Great food and friendly staff. You get the basics, plastic silverware, paper napkins etc, but the food and service is excellent. Going from Phoenix to Vegas this is a great little lunch stop. The Chicken is tender and nicely pulled (no grissly parts). Hubby had the Brisket and it too was excellent. All the sides except the fries are homemade. Yum

“Good pulled chicken BBQ”
Reviewed October 17, 2013 via mobile

Enjoyed the BBQ at the Hog Trough. Easy to find, casual, rustic restaurant with great smells and decent sandwiches. Excellent sweet potato fries! Wish they had a wider choice of sauces and maybe add turkey, too?
