I am a recent transplant from Kansas so I know my way around good BBQ, and this place has nailed it! The slow smoked ribs are tender, but not soggy. The sauce is a perfect blend, that compliments the meat instead of covering it up. The

I have eaten at 2 different Hoggy's a total of 3 times and I have ALWAYS been VERY satisfied. I live for food and love trying new places but it's hard for me to turn this place down when I'm in town. The grazer platter is my favorite, that other reviewer must be crazy!...guess I'll have to try it again to make sure it's still good--what a shame ; )

Pros: speed of service, quality of food, unique atmosphere

Cons: I live 2 hours away

You got to love the 3 little pigs! You get a variety of BBQ styles and a couple of great side dishes. I really like the sweet potatoes and the BBQ Mac n Cheese but usually end up getting the green beans and asparagus to watch my girlish figure. : (

Pros: Great BBQ and SideDIshes

Cons: The Delaware Restaurant is Too Noisy

Disappointing and we wished we would have went some where else. At $77 for 5 people, the price was High for what we recieved.. mostly BBQ sandwiches at $11. a plate.. The BBQ is a spicy one not the sweet smokey kind we like.. My grazer platter was disappointing also small slab of ribs that were over cooked then reheated with their BBQ sauce poured over them.. The very small cups of sides with it (Small) ...
We were very disappointed, nothing special but the building and surroundings. We wished we would have went to Smokey Bones instead.. The food was average at best.. It seemed to us that it was processed and microwaved, not strait from the smoke house!!
We would not recommend it to any one.. We even told the waitress it was my wife's birthday and they did not do any thing special for her..
Very Disappointed!!!

Pros: Waitress was OK , service OK

Cons: Price and not great food..

The restaurant has a large interior with a fireplace. The food was good but we did have to wait a little. All in all, it was a different experience gut the food was good and plentiful for the price.

went to this place based on the reviews here and the high citysearch review score. Boy was it a misttake. Hardly 20% full, but still took 10 minutes before someone ackknowledged us and sat us. Service was good after that. Food was boring, rac of ribs were cold, and the sauce was just average. What a disappointment. One of those chains acting as a mom and pop shop. Very disappointed and would never go again.

Pros: Service was good after we finally were sat down

Cons: What counts, the food was bad. Authentic wanabees

I'd heard a lot of good stuff about Hoggy's before I went there, and having done so several times, I have no idea what all the fuss is about. In a town with some very good BBQ options (City Barbecue, for example), Hoggy's is nothing to write home about. Their menu reminds me more of Applebees or Logan's Roadhouse than a real BBQ place, and their sauce isn't so special that it should be provided without other options. Their portions and choices of sides is cringeworthy from a fat/calorie standpoint, even relative to other barbecue joints.

Let's face it - the midwest isn't the best place to get barbecue, and Hoggy's is proof of that. Despite its being a popular choice for barbecue in Columbus, it doesn't even hold a candle to the best of the best in town, much less the best of the best period.

The meat is fatty and poorly smoked, the sauce is too sweet, and the sides are the same stuff you can get anywhere else.

If you're hungry, you can go there, but there are much better real barbecue places in town.

Pros: Cheap, Fast for lunch

Cons: Nothing special, Too much OSU stuff.

Both the service and the food at Hoggy's can be a bit spotty, but all in all it's usually quite good. When the ribs are done right, they are the best around, but there have been a few times when they were overdone and dry. Also, occasionally the side dishes will be cold. When everything is fresh though, it can't be beat.

PROS: Fun atmosphere, Quick seating
CONS: Occasionally cold food

Now a chain, this is the original central Ohio resturant. This old barn, decorated perfectly (theres even a real tractor hanging from the ceiling) has the perfect ambience. The staff is friendly, and the food is excellent. Everything is great on the menu...I recommend the pulled pork or brisket...both are slow smoked to perfection. Their Mac-N Cheeses has its own reputation, as do their smoked chicken wings. A true BBQ joint, and one of the best at that.

The pulled pork, grilled asparagus and mashed sweet potatos make this just about the comfort of comforts. It is hard to limit yourself on the sides and find just the two that you want to have with your pulled port, as the list is quite long and I have sampled most of them when my friends ordered.
But I have not been able to tear myself away from my favorites. The barn makes a great atmosphere, there is plenty of seating, and spaced well. And a wood burning fireplace for those chilly afternoons and evenings.
