It's a pound beef hot dog, wrapped in bacon, deep fried and served on a bun with a pulled pork and slaw topping. Get it with a side of greens. They have a... More

Visited on a Saturday with family. What we liked: 1. Really, the food is amazing. I wish I could fix a burger at home this juicy; run down your hands onto your arms juicy. I'm not being facetious. Yes, it was messy, but it was sooooooooo good. Big too. Split it with a table mate. 2. Onion rings fresh and... More

This place has a comfy, cozy atmosphere, the staff is super friendly, they have local craft beer, and the best buffalo style shrimp tacos I have ever had! I also got the fried pickle spears and they were delicious! Just beware the portions are HUGE, definitely good for sharing!

We like mom and pop places vs chains. When we saw the reviews we gave it a try. Hubby loved the fried hotdog wrapped in bacon topped with BBQ! Wow! I went basic with a pulled pork plate, yummy! Service was great!

After looking at reviews we searched out HogsHead Cafe. It's in an odd little shopping center, but worth checking out! My husband got a pulled chicken sandwich, I got a shrimp po boy and my son got a hamburger topped with pulled pork, bacon and onion rings!!! So.Good. Service was good. Price a little more moderate but definitely huge portions.

We did a take out. This cafe is very small, only a few tables, and a bit hard to locate, but they produce some excellent food. The burger was cooked to perfection and the meat appeared very fresh - excellent quality. The pulled pork sandwhich was excellent as well, as where all of the sides we ordered. We had chicken...

As somebody who grew up in North Carolina, visiting family in Kansas City, and currently living in Texas, I like to think I know BBQ pretty well. This place has high quality BBQ and the sides are cooked just are perfect. The banana pudding dessert is the best I have had anywhere, it is even better than my mom's banana... More
