Great food without the pizazz of the large chains. I loved it! It feels like being in Mom's kitchen. Everything on the menu is homemade.

Used TripAdvisor to find a restaurant near me as I'm not from the area and Hogzilla stood out as a place I should try. Small place, but the food and service was great.

Decided to try this place after reading the reviews here. We went on a Saturday afternoon, close to 4pm and were the only customers in the place. We were treated like family when we stepped in and told to sit anywhere we wished. The building and tables were clean and bright with a 50's car motif, red and white interior.... More

We were driving across Michigan and looking for a place to lunch. The name seemed to say it all. We happened to stop during the lunch buffet. The pulled pork and the rib ends were tasty, especially with their original sauce. Don't miss the mac and cheese - a little different than the usual with less cheese and just the... More

Wrapped in similar bread to Ray rays down the road, and dipped in a tangy bbq sauce the pulled pork was on point. Super tasty, wanted to go back for seconds but there closed on Sunday's.

After a long day of errands, family visits and a missed lunch, my mother suggested we try her favorite BBQ haunt where the staff know her as a "regular". Thus we found ourselves out for an early supper at Hogzilla BBQ Pit in Battle Creek along business 94. I have a wonderful BBQ haunt of my own back in my... More

The service was great. Their was so much food that you didn't leave famished. I had the triple sampler and it was amazingly good the pulled chicken, rids, and sausage were all cooked to perfection and properly seasoned. I would recommend the sweet barbecue sauce. The only thing was the barbecue baked beans they were hard and just in some... More

Hogzilla is by far the best BBQ around. Our go to is, the platter for two minus ribs with extra brisket, homemade mac and cheese and potato salad. Also there burnt ends melt in your mouth. The staff here really knows what they're doing.

We had the buffet to try various things, pork and chicken were ok, but had BBQ flavor, for that you would have to add sauce. Received complaints that the beans were hard, which is not typical of properly good beans. The Mac and cheese was overlooked and the potato salad and brownies are ok. The upkeep both of the restaurant... More
