Probably the best BBQ in Los Angeles and I've eaten a lot of BBQ. Get yourself a stack of ribs, a bib, and dig in. Worth the wait if there's a line. Good parking in back.

I used to go to Hogly Wogly many times...in the 90's...when it still turned out good BBQ.

Something happened during the last decade.

After several visits all turned out the same: Dried up chicken, dried up ribs, etc., etc., I stopped

I have been going to this establishment for over 30 years. In recent years, I am disappointed time and time again by over-chewy, overcooked ribs, ofen mixed in with thoise correctly done. My sense is that thete is no manager on premises monitoring the cooking process.

If that situation was corrected, Hogly Wogly could return to being one of the best rib joints in the city.

Pros: Tasty sauce

Cons: Often overcooked - oven needs attention!

.

When my husband and I first moved from Texas to LA, we thought we try our luck on going to Doctor Hogly Wogly's on the claim of having Texas quality BBQ and from Tyler no less. We are from the Austin and College Station area and have had every kind of BBQ imaginable all across the state. Needless to say we were not impressed with the food at all. The meat tasted like it had been broiled in the oven and of course no sign of smokers anywhere, which is a must at any good BBQ joint. The Texas hospitality was there for sure. Our waitress was very nice, but did not overshadow the food. If you are from LA, you will probably like this place but if you are not it's a waste of time. People of LA this is NOT what BBQ is supposed to taste like. Just a friendly FYI.

My bf has been trying to get me to agree with Hogly Woglys for a while. We were running errands out in the SFV and he drove us out of the way to eat here. its saying a lot if he's driving out of the way to get some grub.

I think i have pretty exacting standards for BBQ (despite being asian). My best friends dad BBQ's every three day holiday and Uncle Stevies BBQ is hands down the best.

Hogly Woglys is a good stop gap when a 3day weekend isn't in sight. The portions are huge. We ate until we were stuffed and still had to take home the leftovers (which they pack up for you in a plastic bag)

I can't say the sides wowed me, they were kinda unmemorable, but the BBQ was good. Love their sauce.

This is not a date place. This is a get your hands dirty, bbq sauce on your face, elbows out, lick your fingers kinda place.

Kudos to my bf for knowing good bbq. 1 minus point for considering it a date place.

This is seriously one of the best BBQ spots in all of LA. Can't say much for the sides, but that's okay, the ribs, brisket and links more than make up for it. The employees here look like they were transplanted from Texas...I guess that's a good sign. :)

Doctor Hogly Wogly is one of the top BBQ joints on my list! Far to go, a little pricey, but you get enough of their fantastic BBQ to feed a few people, or stuff yourself! You don't want to stop. I love the ribs, and the side dishes are to fight for! Go, wear expandable waist pants and enjoy!!!!!!

Has great BBQ food, its a homestyle restaurant with a small outdoor patio, you get large generous portions, very limited parking and limited seating inside. Its like a truck stop you might find out in the middle of nowhere. word of mouth has made this a very popular place. I enjoyed the food very much. The bbq beans are different than most places. The have a great BBQ sauce.

Pros: Best bbq food,

Cons: If you are looking for atmosphere, this is not it

.

As soon as we arrived, we were made to feel like we were at home. The waitress was friendly and funny and she gave us the lowdown on the food. I read in other reviews that the portions were generous- but that is an understatement! When the plates arrived, they were stacked high with succulent chicken, ribs and brisket. The BBQ sauces were delicious and spicy, and the baked beans were the best I've had.
Sure it wasn't cheap, but it was 3 meals worth on 1 plate.
Highly recommended!

Pros: friendly service, huge portions, great food

Cons: uh.... lack of ambience I guess?

If you like meat that falls off the bone I highly recommend this restaraunt. With lumberjack sized portions you'll most likely have some left over. Family owned & operated this place rocks!!

Either you GET the "Doctors" or you DON'T. If you DO, you'll have a fabulous time here. Great food, love the waitstaff, the sauce and the outside bathrooms. If you DON'T, you'll write some of the hateful reviews you'll read here. Just because some drooling imbecile doesn't get it doesn't change how a great a place it is. So by all means GO - if you love reasonably Texas-style "Q", keep an open mind about the decor, which is not what you go for, and bring a dime (or ask your waitress for a token) so you can wash up afterward. And do come hungry, or plan to take leftovers. Oh - for those of you who don't get it, you'll LOVE Mr. Cecils - that's YOUR kind of place.

You'll smell it before you get there. The best Texas BBQ in the valley. The food is great. Very flavorful. There's not much atmosphere, but who needs it when the food is so good.

Everything I've had is good here. I reccomend the pork plate and the hot links. Best bar-b-q in the san fernando valley. Its location on sepulveda blvd. may be a put off, but if you haven't been down the blvd. in a while - it has really cleaned up. Not a terrible area anymore. And the meat is worth it. definitely.

The ribs were so tough they were almost impossible to chew.
Sauce was good, sweet and spicy, sides adequate.
Brisket was awsome!! Made my day.

Went for lunch, was not crowed. Had half-rack of spareribs. They were ok but not great. Sauce was good. A bit pricey, $21 for half of ribs (no sides) and coke with tip.

Let me start by saying that I was born and raised in Texas. While this BBQ is mediocre for Texas, it is the best I have had in Los Angeles. Don't listen to those saying that the brisket was dry. The brisket, ribs, and chicken were juicy and tender. The sausage was a glaring weakness and would not have sold in Texas. The sauce is very sweet and does not contain as much vinegar as what I am used to. The sides are definitely weak, except the cole slaw, which reminded me of home. The wait staff was nice and I'm sure that none was a starving actor, which I found quite refreshing.

Is it as good as what you find in small towns across Texas? No. Is it the best in Los Angeles? Definitely. It is good enough to give me my BBQ fix and that is the most I can ask given the alternative of going home to get decent BBQ.

I have tried nearly every BBQ place in the valley and Dr. Hogly Wogly's is about the best. The food never disappoints. I always get the brisket which is tender and juicy, but has also heard that the hot links, the ham and the pork are also excellent. The BBQ beans are outstanding and some of the most interesting I have ever tasted. They're just like candy. All of the other sides are quite good as well. The service is prompt and friendly. The same group of waitresses has been there forever, and they know the menu inside and out. They make you feel right at home. The restaurant itself has no ambiance or charm whatsoever, but it is clean and well maintained.

Best bar-b-que in town, sauce is delicious and the meat and nice and juicy. For a first time customer, I recommend getting the 3 way combo, you can get beef brisket, sausage link, and pork ribs. The beef brisket is to die for. Entrees come with bread and sides. DO NOT ORDER any salad from here, they don't serve it and save yourself the humiliation of being laughed at for ordering salad in a bbq place. Service is great, all the waitresses are very helpful and friendly. Price is reasonable.

That is all I can say, this place has the Best Ribs in California. Stop reading and just go eat there. The drive to the valley is worth it, even in Summer.

My husband and I "commute" to Texas for work every so often, and we've tried some GOOOOD BBQ. I'd venture to say that Dr Hogley's is on par with some of the best we've had down there. It has a real down home feel too!

I got their beef biscuit and my friend go their ribs.

The nice thing about this place is its not a upscale claim jumper type restaurant. Hoggly Woggley is much more authentic then that. The reason being is that they are old school, they follow traditions and they have time tested recipes that modern places don't have.

Just like the reviews for many other ethnic, or regional, restaurants -- the scores are very low from the transplants. I have no respect for any transplant who chooses to live in Los Angeles, yet complain about our food. There is no city in the country that can match the quality of so many specialty foods than Los Angeles. New York may be close.

That is why so many of these reviews should be ignored. I have live in Texas and this place can compete with their BBQ. Also, their is great atmosphere to the shack of a restaurant.

For the people who do not like this place, go back to Tony Roma's where you belong. That way, I will not have to wait so long for a table.

It would have been wonderful to find a lil place of heaven to remind you of home out here in La La Land - but this is not the place. Perhaps this establishment was started to give the locals here an idea of bbq'd meat just as famous as St. Louis and Memphis? Whatever the reason the owner or whomever is the "Texan" associated with this establishment - he/she/it might want to take a long visit back home and practice! I have never had brisket so tough; by the time you try the 3rd or 4th slice it starts to get more tender, but not by much. I was also surprised how far one can take sugar - apparently it's used here quite a bit mask the lack of taste in everything from the cole slaw to their sauce. Our waitress assured us that the only item not made in-house was the potato salad - well, I don't know where they make that purchase, but that was the only item worth eating! Perhaps that outside source could provide a decent menu @ $20 a plate while the "Texan" is getting some schooling back home!

I can't believe I drove for even fifteen minutes to try this place. The place has table service, and the lifers there are courteous enough, but just. Seat yourself whereever, I guess. Most menu items are over fifteen dollars, with a handful of sandwiches for $7 and change. The texas hot link sandwich was lacking in heat of both the temperature and spice varieties, though, ironically, it did give me indigestion. The spicy barbecue sauce and wet naps likewise failed to live up to their names, being sweet and dry, respectively. I think the waitress forgot momentarially about the fries, judging from the flicker of surprise on her face when I asked about them after she said "have a nice meal," so she didn't drop by again until it looked like we were finished. Mention cold food, and she'll just give you more of it to make up for the dissapointment. Quantity trumps quality here, and only barely. And oh yeah, the booths are so narrow that footsie is inevitable, and don't try to balance yorself with a hand on the table when you squeeze in; the tables aren't bolted down. Almost launched a saltshaker across the room with that one.

Ok who cares about atmosphere when it comes to getting messy with bbq. They have the best beef brisket and the portion for the price is crazy. Everything else is good but the brisket is to die for. Service is so so but with food that good who cares. Hole in the wall atmosphere but the food is soooo good who cares. Once you go you'll be hooked.

I'm from Texas, and I'm very picky about BBQ. In fact, I usually say that I don't really care for it, because so much of what is passed off as bar-be-que is at best mediocre. However, Dr. shines. It's not big, they don't take reservations, and they won't seat you until the entire party is there. However, we showed up with a party of 13, and were happy with our seating. Although everything is booths and banquettes, they worked to get us as close together as possible, and we still felt like a unified group.

The food? Delicious. Tender, flavorful meat (I had the 3-item combo of brisket, ham, and spare ribs) with your choice of mild or hot sauce on the side. Both are terrific. The baked beans are excellent as well.

The service was attentive and friendly, and they did a great job with our large group.

The prices are totally reasonable for what you get. (Brisket is cheap if you buy it at the supermarket, but so is everything else.) They are not out of line with other BBQ places I've eaten, including Texas. And I wound up with at least three meals worth of food on my plate, so on a per-meal basis it's quite a bargain.

We'll definitely be back.

I'm native Texan and KNOW barbeque. Walked out of here 6 years ago when saw that brisket was $9/ HALF pound. Brisket is an inexpensive meat. 6 years later $13.95 half pound. Love brisket but you could do much better for $28/pound. Brisket was specialty, tried it, with links and pork ribs. Links OK but brisket tough, chewy - not tender like supposed to be. Even worse, asked for sauce on the side but whole platter came swimming in thin sugary mess. Waitress said wasn't sauce but marinade. Made sure they drained for doggie bag - the brown sugary marinade, ruined everything.Portions large but $20.95 for a 3 meat platter should be. Confirmed my initial instinct of WHY I order sauce on side and why I thought it was WAY too expensive for BBQ 6 years ago. I know this is LA but BBQ is supposed to be cheap eats.

Cons: BAD runny marinade, Price, Brisket

.

Lunched here with boyfriend Saturday, March 11. Used Zagat guide to find it. The bbq was good, not great. Enjoyed the hot links and brisket, but spareribs were just ok. His chicken was great. Our waitress was lovely (kind, professional, accommodating), but our server was very rude - a rough looking woman with a perpetual smirk and attitude bordering on disrespect. The food wasn't good enough to put up with that. We did not enjoy the sides. We like traditional pork beans and cole slaw. There was something tangy in the beans, maybe cumin? And raisins in the coleslaw with that same tangy taste. I guess we have high standards in bbq and service so agreed not to go back.

BBQ is not Grilled meat, BBQ is completely different and THIS is some of the best BBQ anywhere. I have tried all the items on the menu, Brisket and Hot Links are my favorite. This is a simple formula, IF you are looking for fancy, then it ain't BBQ. You could move this place to west Texas on a roadside 200 miles from anywhere and it would be crowded because it is that good. The atmosphere is Texas Roadside. We drive 185 miles to have dinner here at least every 6-8 weeks. If you like Denny's and Perko's $7.99 steak you will not like this place. Hogley's is #1. Waitress' are great. Price is right. Yumm.

This place has the best ribs ever. Very much not your "typical" style of rib, very unique style and just killer. Huge portions are the norm, even the chicken pieces are massive.

Kind of dumpy on the inside but no matter, the food by far makes up for it.

The waitresses are rather rough around the edges. Your typical gruff, burley truck stop "Marge" types. Who cares though, the food is that good.

The only draw back is you gotta go outside around back to wash up and make sure you ask for a coin before you go.

Don't forget the floss and parking can be a pain, but the 20+ mile drive I make every now and then is well worth it.

Oh, I love their brisket. And the hot links. Good ribs as well, but the brisket. It's worth the trip. But loose the tragic plastic bags when boxing the food - it's just too much trailer park for me...

After a previous bad experience we decided to give dr hogly wogly's another chance due to everyone online's praise. Turns out we were right. The prices are high--even by LA standards, the food tasted like it had been in a fridge for months and thank god we took tagamet before our dinner or I'd be writing this review from the emergency room. In short, why waste your time at this overhyped dive when you could be at the other great bbq haunts in LA and actually get what you pay for.

I'm a huge fan of BBQ... Western, Eastern, Texas, you name it. "Barbecue" is both a noun and a verb. This place has placards/article posted proclaiming it one of best in the area (and the U.S.). Things mustve gone downhill a lot since then. It's outrageously expensive (even for LA norms); justified neither by portion nor quality. Service is quick, seating non-existent, lighting is 60-watt naked bulb." I sampled everything on the menu over 12 visits trying hard to find their strong point. Everything (except the beef ribs) was very dry and tougher than youd ever expect from the best. Their sauce (the hallmark of any good barbecue, Texas or otherwise) ranks somewhere below Heinz family-size: so sweet you cant taste anything. The $14.95 pre-cooked ribs you find shrink-wrapped in the supermarket are better. Too bad, theres not much BBQ to be found in LA, and I had high hopes.

They have the Best BBQ ever. They actually cook the BBQ in a wood pit instead of grilling it. Whenever you go to a BBQ restaurant, check out how they cook the meat. Is it cooked in a barrell?- which is almost the same as grilling at home. Do they grill it like a steak, similar to home as well or do they have a pit. Hogly wogly's has a pit!!! That's why they're the best. Also, did you try their sauce. They have three sauces, the BBQ sauce, the hot bbq sauce and the marinade sauce. Have you seen other bbq restuarants with a marinade. I don't think so. Simply the best

I love this place. As a former Texan, I love good barbeque and the Dr's beef brisket is some of the best that I've ever tasted. I love the sauce too. The portions are huge so be ready to have some leftovers for the next cople of days.

I grew up in Mt. Pleasant, TX, a speck on the map just north of Tyler. Dr. Hogley Wogley's is defintely authentic bbq. It is not the best I've ever had, but I would rate it in the top three.....and hands down better than anything else I've had in my 5 years in LA. Now, if only the prices were comparable to Texas........

I originally come from the Tyler, TX area and let me just say this place should change its name immediately. You couldn't find this kind of mediocre BBQ in Tyler, Texas if you tried. The prices are high and the only thing that was reminiscent of real BBQ joints are the baked beans. Like other reviewers I am still trying to find the real thing!

The ribs as they come from the kitchen are pretty darn excellent but once you put the hot BBQ sauce that they put on the table on them they transcend excellence. Both the pork spareribs and the beef ribs are tender with some crispy spots that make things interesting...but oh that sauce! It's highly addicting and it "IS spicy so not for the faint of heart. It leaves you with a nice afterburn in your mouth and a heavenly glow in your tummy. I'm not kidding about the glow...it's what keeps me coming back and it's not close to where I live! I've had BBQ from the top spots (Memphis, Texas, etc.) butthis is by far the best. Brisket, links and sandwiches are good too but you have to have that hot sauce!

Forget the beef ribs and chicken, this place is all about the pork spareribs and the brisket. The brisket is amazingly tender and succulent, and the pork ribs are the best ever. Love the beans and slaw, too, but it's all about those ribs and the brisket. The waitresses are great, too!

Visited for the first time just recently. Our server, Carole, was the highlight of the visit with great recommendations and spectacular service. Food-wise, try the brisket--it's great.

This place constantly is rated #1 in the greater LA area, but I have no idea why. The food average, at best...and rather overpriced..

Named for original owner Johnny Greene, who got his nickname in 1932 when he was a chubby delivery boy for a Piggly Wiggly market in Texas, this unassuming joint's decor is a comforting melange of Early American vinyl and Formica. Dive…
