“Blah. Go elsewhere, especially off-season.”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

Just had a bad experience here. BBQ combo platter of ribs, chicken and pulled pork. Chicken and pork were pretty dry, and they wouldn't accommodate a substitution of turkey for chicken. Their "sweet" sauce (which is my preference) wasn't sweet and I didn't care for it. The ribs were dry-rub and fair, but definitely needed some sauce. Fried mushrooms were pretty good, although standard-issue.

The giant palmetto bug on the floor (but I do understand that it's Florida and there were palm trees around the building) was just icing on the cake.

There was live outdoor music, even on a Thursday, off-season, in 40 degree weather.

“Great BBQ & relaxing atmosphere”
Reviewed 18 January 2014

We have been to Hogs Breath twice during our trips to Destin. The BBQ is great, really good pulled pork & ribs!! Must check out the gift shop next store, neat t shirts & bottle coozeys. Fun tie die shirts! We are headed to Destin in Sept again this year and Im sure we will stop in, if not for dinner maybe for the night atmosphere, have not had a chance to sit at the bar and hang out-- would like to try it.

“Great BBQ!”
Reviewed 14 January 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

This is a pretty cool "locals" hangout offering really good BBQ... as well as fish sandwiches, burgers, chicken, etc. The outside bar is pretty rocking with friendly bartenders... no one's a stranger. Want to get a feel of the "real Destin"? Hog's Breath is a required stopover.

“It's been a few years....”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

but it wouldn't let me choose correct time for when I was there. Good food, casual fun (live music). We had a party of 8 and were seated quickly. They have a store that sells their products next door.

“Damn that's the way pulled pork is made!”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

Visited here during a weekend in Destin. Loved the portion size, the well tasting bbq sauce and the great variety of sides. Perfect for lunch or dinner.
