The BBQ is good, but nothing to write home about. The sides are where it's at! Fried okra was delicious, as well as the greens.

This place has a great outdoor bar set up though slightly limited options (beer and wine only). We had the ribs and they were great but their Carolina mustard BBQ sauce is to die for! The coleslaw and jalapeño mac and cheese we could have...More

Decided to eat here based off other reviews I read, and I'm so happy I did! The bbq was outstanding and the portions where big. Enjoyed all the sauces, but the mustard one was my favorite.

Established in 2010.

Owner and founder Danny Hernandez was born into a family with a passion for food and excellence. After working in his family's Cuban-style restaurant in Tampa, Hernandez gravitated toward another genre close to his heart: the smoky flavors of barbecue. Determined to share it with the community he loved, Hernandez opened the first Holy Hog Barbecue in Tampa, offering authentic southern barbecue nuanced with Cuban flavors.

Today, Holy Hog has grown to four locations in the Tampa Bay area. We're also thrilled to have two locations at Amalie Arena, home of the NHL's Tampa Bay Lightning and venue of choice for A-list performers and shows.
