Went here with colleagues from work. My pulled pork sandwich was average. Pork had a lot of fat. Mac and cheese was okay but lacking flavor. Others said Cornbread, chicken, and brisket was "just okay". For the cost, Bad Brads is much better and only a few minutes away.

My wife and I visited Hogs Hollow before going to a game at Jimmy John's Field. I'm from Alabama and my taste in BBQ is influenced by that. I haven't found a BBQ joint in the area that I liked unit Hogs Hollow. The meat at Hogs Hollow was excellent. It had a neutral smokey taste. Some of the local places use too much cherry wood and the meat has a candied taste. Not so here. The service was slow and sketchy, but I think that was because they haven't figured out the demand from the ballpark and under scheduled, but I'm sure they'll figure it out.

My wife and I went with a group to this stop, just off of M-59 at Cass. They have a good selection of smoked meat dishes, great bar, very good service. We dined in the bar area, however, they have a large dining room on the second floor.

My wife enjoyed the sliders, which are a mix of their smokehouse meat selections. They looked fantastic, and since she didn't share, I'm sure it was all good. I tried a half rack of the ribs. The rub was good, but the meat wasn't incredibly tender. I didn't expect it to fall off the bone, but that particular rack didn't cut it for me. The brisket sandwich was also good according to another in our party.

I'd certainly return to try some of the other dishes given the experience of the others in our party.

We thought we would try this place out, and left very underwhelmed.

The BBQ was just "ok", and came out cold. The service was great, as we were the only people in there.

I'm sorry to hear that your food was not to your satisfaction. Did you let your server know that the food was not to your liking? If so, did he/she try to take care of your issue?
