Great food! Lean meat and perfect sides. The burnt ends, corn fritters and pimento cheese dip are all a must.

If I want BBQ in South Tampa, I will never again go to Holy Hog. Each time we have ordered the Saint Louis ribs, (3 times now), they have come charred and like burnt leather on a stick. I am honestly not impressed with any...More

Fantastic road side BBQ. The pulled pork sandwiches were loaded with juicy pulled pork. The smoked turkey leg was juicy, smokey and loaded with flavor. Good choices of sauces ranging from sweet to spicy. The folks running the place were friendly.

Disappointed with my second time to this location. The first time visiting I was totally wowed by the award winning jalapeño Mac & cheese. This time they were greasy & temperature was luke warm like they had been left too long in the warming trays....More

Not much to look at from the outside (what great bbq place is). But, the smoke scent pulled us right in. We were just driving by. The prices were fair and selection good. What was nice was how friendly the staff was. There is limited...More

If you are a first timer ask for help. We weren't sure what to order and they recommended the burnt ends which were amazing. Also don't leave without an order of corn fritters. Out of this world!

I was in Tampa for baseball games and was looking for barbecue. I grew up in South Carolina so I like to think I know something about good barbecue. This wasn't very special. I ordered the pulled pork sandwich. It was ok, nothing special. The...More

Stopped in for a quick bite and was pleasantly surprised. Quick service we both got a brisket meal. Came with garlic toast and your choice of two sides. I highly recommend the loaded potato salad. We went outside to sit on the patio and have...More

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.
