My family and I have been several times and it is always amazing. Not necessarily the cheapest place to go in town but you definitely get bang for your buck here. There's no shortage of food and it is always amazing, I've never had something that wasn't good and my kids love it too. In the right time of year... More

We had never been to a barbecue restaurant before. The food was good (and plentiful) and our waitress was very personable. We liked that there were many choices for our meat tastes (among the 4 of us). It was a fun casual place for a quick meal!

The Memphis dry rub ribs are great. The Arkansas brisket too. Sides...excellent. Had the feel like it was a lot of locals, few tourists, as the main shops and restaurants on the Main Street were several blocks away. Very good BBQ.

Been here many times. Never disappointed. Try it, you'll love it! Downtown Frederick is Black Hog. The sandwich or platter...it is all fantastic.

Very casual dining. The barbecue is amazing - so very tasty and always tender. The sides are also good - the pintos and rice are my personal favorite. Also love that it is in downtown Frederick - after shopping and sight seeing, this is a nice place to enjoy good food and drinks!

Went to the downtown Frederick location on a Friday Afternoon. Local parking is difficult and we ended up parking in the garage a few blocks away. BBQ pulled pork and beans were excellent. I really liked their original BBQ sauce but it isn't the typical type of sauce you would expect. The mac and cheese and coleslaw sides were just... More

When in Frederick, eating at the Black Hog is a must. Everything from the chopped pork to the Brisket and all the sides are delicious. My favorite were the Mac n' Cheese, Coke slaw and the fries!!! Oh yeah, and don't let me forget the corn bread!!! Absolutely phenomenal!!! I will continue coming back!!!

Avoid the suburban locations (they had no ribs on a Saturday night) and experience the crowded funky downtown location for the TRUE Black Hog experience, but get there early if you don't want to wait outdoors.
