Good food and a good selection of beer. The buffet is always good and fresh and the original sauce is great.

My first time at Hogzilla. Pleasant staff and helpful. I choose the buffet to sample their food. Good assortment but their "signature" beans were nothing special as advertised. All the trays were filled promptly as needed. Not a big line of food but enough to definitely get you full. I saw some big eating customers leaving more than happy. Not... More

The barbeque is good, not fabulous, but still pretty good. I'll go back. They have a decent lunch buffet and you certainly get what you pay for, plenty to eat and decent food. It's not a fancy place, but that's what keeps the prices down - so I'm in. They also offer catering. Go - check them out. Maybe your... More

We've been in love with Hogzilla's sub sandwiches before they added bbq to their menu. The best in Battle Creek!

The food is decent but I never feel like I've satisfied that craving for BBQ. Personally I think it is just me as my friends seem to love the place. Overall the service is great.

Came to celebrate winning state championship. Being from TX I had low expectation of the BBQ but I was pleasantly surprised. They did a good job. I really appreciate them staying late and keeping the buffet open past their closing time. THANK YOU. We even received personal service from the manager. Great Job team.

Great food without the pizazz of the large chains. I loved it! It feels like being in Mom's kitchen. Everything on the menu is homemade.

Used TripAdvisor to find a restaurant near me as I'm not from the area and Hogzilla stood out as a place I should try. Small place, but the food and service was great.

Decided to try this place after reading the reviews here. We went on a Saturday afternoon, close to 4pm and were the only customers in the place. We were treated like family when we stepped in and told to sit anywhere we wished. The building and tables were clean and bright with a 50's car motif, red and white interior.... More

We were driving across Michigan and looking for a place to lunch. The name seemed to say it all. We happened to stop during the lunch buffet. The pulled pork and the rib ends were tasty, especially with their original sauce. Don't miss the mac and cheese - a little different than the usual with less cheese and just the... More
