Lisa Mcdonald Dowell
It was awesome the workers were very friendly and the food was excellent kudos goes out to you holy hog of Tampa Florida you rock!
Great customer service and food! Tabitha helped us with catering lunch for our staff and will be back for more bbq in the future. Everyone loved it. Thanks again! � More...
Really enjoyed visiting the downtown location this weekend. Easy bike ride from our apartment on Davis Islands, and found a seat at the bar for lunch and a brew. The bartender Melissa was nice enough to put the Lightning game on for us! Sam "da man" was in great spirits and made recommendations even though the line was out the door, and the staff worked hard to get orders filled. Will probably make this my primary holy hog location as opposed to other location in South Tampa. More...
We ate at Holy Hog yesterday for lunch. It was their peak hours, and everything was fantastic. In addition to our food being delicious- the staff was so friendly. It was clear to me that customer service is a focus at the downtown location. The guy who assisted me actually made a special trip over to see if his recommendation was a good one. Two thumbs up to you guys for making this a memorable experience all around! More...
Thank you for offering and having a gluten free menu!! Your pulled pork is amazing and your sauces are some of the best I’ve ever had! We will definitely be back soon!
Kinda disappointed to see that fried okra, green bean casserole, and smoked ham were no longer on the menu after not being here since February. Would love it if y'all could bring these items back!!
Other than that, the food is definitely delicious and I would recommend this as a place to eat lunch or dinner. More...

Food is always good & nice serving portions.
A little pricey for what you get in my opinion, but pretty good BBQ. You'll spend $11 or more for a meal. Love the mac n cheese though!
Awesome BBQ place and fair prices. More than I could eat in one sitting for $11. Fun friendly atmosphere. We have had them cater to office lunches before and that was good, in person is much better.
Nice small, local place with good food. I was satisfied with the flavors and how well the meat was cooked.
Probably the best barbecue I’ve had. The collards were perfect. I usually eat hot sauce on my greens, but I didn’t even want to put any on these. The jalapeño mac and cheese is to die for. I’m going to have a hard time eating regular mac and cheese again. The ribs and brisket are amazing too. I definitely recommend them! More...
I can always depend on a friendly greeting and a great lunch. I particularly enjoy the brisket but the mac and cheese is a generously cheesy, dependable side. Don't forget to grab some Cheerwine! More...
I got to photograph a wedding Holy Hog catered, it was AMAZING!!!!!! They had so many great foods.
Absolutely wonderful!. The food and service is the best!
I've eaten her twice so far and both times were awesome! Huge fan of mustard BBQ and you guys have it. Also, y'all's loaded potato said is the best potato salad I've ever had in my life

Holy Hog just catered a business luncheon for me. It was fantastic and delivered hot and fresh. Thanx to Tabitha for her working with me on rhis.
Im addicted!! Foods amazing recommend to everyone!
My favorite bbq joint in the whole world. Cannot be beat!
I use to work right by this place! I miss it sooooo much! Best ribs, hands down!!
Went to the downtown Holy Hog location and the BBQ was seriously off the chain! You guys were slammed from the It Works conference being on lunch break, but the whole staff was still very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed! Need a north Florida location!!
Christine Patterson Remy
We stumbled onto this place while visiting Tampa, and WOW! super friendly service, great BBQ, and the mac & cheese and sweet potato soufflé are amazing. If we lived nearby, we would be regulars! More...
Killer, simple, BBQ. The real deal. Brisket and burnt ends are unreal. All of their sides are amazing but I love the Black Eyed Peas and Jalapeño Mac-n-Cheez. Do yourself a flavor...order a side of Corn Fritters!! More...
Best in Tampa hands down! They're very friendly, place is always clean and most importantly their bbq and sides are unbelievable!
Delicious southern cooking with belt-loosening portions - great pulled pork, amazing mustard BBQ sauce, awesome sweet potato souffle.... and almost all of the menu is gluten free! I will be sure to send people your way - thanks again for a great dining experience! Two saucy thumbs up! More...
Awesome food. Try the pulled pork sandwich and jalapeno mac-n-cheese.
Was @ downtown location but LUV this place, and I'm a vegetarian! LOL. Best jalapeño Mac & Chz ever. Everyone obviously luvs their jobs and are sooo soooo nice & take great pride in preparing to perfection. Can't wait to go back!

Christine Kroger Tuel
Fantastic food!! Will definitely be back.. love the brisket
Best Brisket I have had in a long time! Can't wait to try the other items. The only disappointment was you didn't get a spork with your carry out but a regular fork! Staff super nice and friendly especially to a first time customer! It will be the place for BBQ I go to in Tampa. More...
Love the atmosphere and the people! I'm not a big "red meat or pork" person but I was pleasantly surprised with the salad options with wonderful BBQ chicken....and the desserts!!! Yum! Danny great job !! More...
Diana L. Winoker
Best in town!! Love the ribs and sweet potato mash.
Melissa Mata S
It was our first time here. Food was delicious. Place is clean. The corn fritters were my fav!! Definitely coming back
Best que in town.
Place is very good even though we're in the south it's hard to find good BBQ but this place is on point and I will be back
Been in Tampa are since 2010 & have been looking for the perfect Barbeque place. Finally found it. The burnt ends are amazing. Easily worth the hour drive. This is the best Barbeque I have ever had in my life. Oh no, they just opened on Dale Mabry in Carrolwood. Much easier to get to. There goes my waistline and wallet! More...
Omg the Burnt ends are amazing! They should be called meat candy! Seriously the pulled pork is awsome with or without sauce. Best BBQ in tampa!
Great food! Great sides!!! Happy with the opening on their spot in dt Tampa!
Very good variety!
Afrika T Carty
This is hands down my favorite barbecue joint in the USA.
First time there. Great BBQ/decent price. Burnt ends were some of the best I've had. Chopped pork was excellent. And the sweet tea was plentiful. lol will go back again when I'm over that way. More...
That was THE BEST BBQ EVER! Everyone was SO nice to us and the food was FABULOUS!! Definitely one of our favorite spots!!
The jalapeno Mac n cheese is amazing.
We just ate there and it was truly good. Also very clean inside and the bathrooms too. Will be back again.

Shelly Zattosky Zikmund
Yesterday I had a craving for barbecue, so we decided to try Holy Hog. It was so delicious; the best I have had in my 18 years in Tampa! In fact, it was so good, not only did we decide to start ordering the Friday specials, but I had a dream that I was eating a big plate of the pulled pork! Yum! More...
This is hands down the best bbq I have had in Florida.
best barbecue and sides
