From the front of the building, you might not expect much, but once you walk around to the back to enter, you can see the owner and his smokers at work. The no nonsense decor and interior is nothing to write home about (though I'm sure a UK fan will feel at home here during a game), but that's not... More

Like smoking your own BBQ. Well Smokin' Hogg is like picking it up from your own kitchen. I buy it by the pound and take it home. It is tucked away just off of Lexington Road. Park in the front walk to the back. Worth the stop.

Almost couldn't find it, then almost was not sure I had found it, definitely glad I didn't miss it. First, its not your average place. Second, don't pass it up. One review said hole in the wall, I prefer to say looks like a buddy's fixed up pool house including the smoker going out back. The owner is the real... More

Some of the best bar-b-que around. Just getting started and the decor is plain but functional. But who cares about the surroundings when the food is this great.

Great grilled chicken. Burgers are excellent and cheap. Place looks like a hole in the wall, but food is really really good and cheap.

Very tasty pulled pork. I had it at a family gathering. It can hold its own to the pulled pork from Alabama. I would suggest using this location for any family event! .

Don't go for the atmosphere, unless you like parrothead! Many people get the barbeque to go - brisket, ribs, smoked pork or chicken, and Cuban sandwiches. Best potato salad I've had in a long time!

We went to Smokin' Hogg with a large group for a goodbye dinner of a friend and had a great experience. This place is family-owned and well-run. The food is great and the atmosphere is very friendly.

Ed Hogg smokes a very tasty brisket! The atmosphere is casual and laid back but the food is very good. Get pulled pork, pulled chicken, brisket or ribs. Sides include potato salad, slaw and baked beans. He offers specials such as pineapple upside down cake and peach cobbler too!

I stopped by a few months after a glowing review by the Lexington Herald. This place isn't much to look at - isn't easy to find and after parking in the front, you need to walk around the back to get inside. The first time I went there it was closed (Monday, I think). I returned weeks later on a... More
