In our opinion, this is the best barbecue in the area. Others have publicity but Hogshead is better hands down. We are always welcomed and treated like family. The food, especially the hot dog and pork wings are my favorites. I haven't tasted anything here...More

I ordered the surf and turf (1/2 rack of ribs, oysters, sweet potato fries, and cole slaw). I wasn't a fan of the cole slaw but everything else was delicious! I would also recommend ordering a strawberry limeade as your beverage. You will not be...More

Fantastic barbecue! Being from a Northern state, it's hard to get good BBQ, and Hogshead had just the thing we were craving. We went on a Thursday night, and didn't get in town until a little later. We showed up to Hogshead a little after...More

Quaint West End cafe, with a very creative menu and the professional staff to make it all happen. Come early as the place fills up and If you don’t find an empty table wait for a while - you will not be disappointed.
