Had an OK early dinner. The service was friendly. The food was only average. My understanding is that they do a great breakfast service.

Stopped in for a bite during a Saturday errands day. Looks like a dive bar from outside but it is really more resto than dive bar. Great BarbQ w western style sauces. Pudding shots were of particular interest to my partner and she loved them. (they serve theirs frozen!) The BBQ pork is very good, moist and tender smoked just... More

This is not a fancy restaurant but the food is delicious. They have really good lunch specials and the bloody mary's are $4.00 and delicious.

I have eaten in BBQ places in Texas,Memphis,St. Louis & even North Carolina. Each had it's own style & recipes. The Hammered Hog rates high on beans, cheesy grits and Slides. I found the ribs tender but a little dry without the sauce. I'm told the jalapeno poppers were great but more than I could handle. Prices were reasonable, staff... More

My friends and I go and try new places for breakfast all over the valley once a month. At the recommendation of a friend who was there the weekend before, we settled on the Hammered Hog for our January meet up. When you pull it up, expect to be pulling up to a saloon. We got there right at 9am... More

We were in the area after a day of running errands and not so inclined to return home and make dinner. Friends had referred to the Hammered Hog as a reasonable alternative for an evening meal. They were spot on. We were greeted by a friendly wait staff and guided through the extensive selection of menu items. We started with... More

Don't let the outside fool you. This place has excellent BBQ!! Pecan wood smoked meats and fish, just the right amount of smoke on the meat and so tender. The family platter we order for 3 people had 4 meats, 4 sides and corn muffins. We could have fed another 2 people. There was plenty of food! The ribs were... More

I place an order to go and got the Popcorn Pig, Catfish Platter and the Peach Cobbler. I loved the Popcorn Pig, make sure to get the hot BBQ sauce it's amazing. I got the Catfish Platter with hush puppies and mashed potatoes on the side. The catfish was a bit salty, the hush puppies are huge, and the potatoes... More

It would be so easy to overlook this or pass on it because there really isn't any curb appeal. If you like bbq, though, that would be a mistake. I ordered the tips and a garden side salad. The tips are an appetizer and the size was a surprise. Half came home with the other half of the big salad.... More

Have you ever had Nachos with BBQ beef? Well if that interest you, then this is the place to go! Wonderful nachos, with wonderful BBQ on it. Truly some of the best nachos I have ever eaten!! :) If nachos are not your thing, then try their platter, they have a couple of different sizes and great sides to go... More
