Y'all should know at the Hog Pit we are committed to providing fresh, homemade, mouth-watering food to go along with our genuine hospitality. We pride ourselves on our loyal guests and employees, and for being a wonderful neighborhood place to have great fun. Some of you may remember the Hog Pit when it was located in the Meat Packing District of NYC. Well, the legend continues at 37 W 26th St. As we like to say: SO GOOD, YOU'LL SQUEAL.

“OK - Not Great....”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

We stopped in The Hog Pit in order to utilize a restaurant.com certificate. At least we did not pay full price for our food. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. The wings I ordered, were cooked perfectly, but lacked in flavor and sauce. My husbands pulled pork was OK. It probably would have been a better experience if our bartender was less abrasive and more friendly. The bartender spent more time chatting with wait staff then with the bar customers.

“Surprisingly tasty food”
Reviewed November 17, 2013 via mobile

Decent spot with well priced food. Pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw was absolutely delicious but unfortunately the mac n cheese wasn't to my taste, but could very well be others.

“Ok bbq”
Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

We here for lunch. I got the barbecue sampler. The ribs didn't have much flavor just sauce covered. The rest was just ok. Had mac and cheese and mashed potatoes.

“Who would have thought - great BBQ in NYC!”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Visited with a group of 25 from a convention (we called ahead). The staff was very welcoming and accommodating.

Being from the South, I have a lot of experience with BBQ. I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed the ribs - not too smoky, not too spicy, not too dry, not too wet, but just right. Others had catfish and were very happy with it.

Would recommend if you have need of BBQ and have enjoyed all else New York has to offer.

“Not a memorable meal”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

Stopped here after walking around the area. Restaurant is spacious and clean, music is current and the decor makes it a fun place to hang out for a drink or a quick meal. Besides the appetizers, nothing here is different to what you may get at any other chain restaurant. Service was very spotty (maybe because of the hour) but given that there were only two other tables besides ours I would have expected a more personalized treatment.
