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...

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.

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.

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...

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!!

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...

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...

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...
