I have loved this place ever since it first opened. But I think their success and expansion has caused them to shorten the cooking process. My Texas and Arkansas brisket were not up to their high standards. Will have to think twice before returning.

Great place, downtown location has character, two more locations outside of town but glad I went to this one first. Great looking and tasting meats and meals. This location is small so might get packed on weekend nights. Parking lot on site also.

Do you want to try an authentic country barbecue? Superb meat, superbly cooked. Certainly not suitable for vegans and vegetarians! Generous portions that can be accompanied with countless types of beer. Hurried, friendly, quick service. Rustic tables and cardboard plates. Very nice!

Stopped in on a Saturday afternoon, busy place but we were seated immediately. Great recommendations from our server. We had chicken, ribs, shoulder and burnt ends. ALL were amazing. Even the sides were excellent; potato salad, Cole slaw and Mac and cheese. Absolutely delicious

Wet Ribs and Arkansas Brisket were superbly done. Really great meal, great spice and smoke. Smoke and sauce had depth. Great cornbread. Service was fast and friendly. Every part of the platter was really good. The only disappointing thing I can say is that I...More

Prices were decent for the area and the barbecue was really good. The Mac and cheese was awesome and ribs were to die for

According to the black hog, their rubs and sauces are gluten free. Hope you enjoy their food when you decide to go...In my opinion, it was very, very good.
