The most tender & flavorful pulled pork I have ever had & I'm from Texas! They have several choices of barbeque sauce & they are ALL really good. I have been disappointed 3 times because they were sold out of the banana pudding! The bread pudding is good but I'd really like to try their banana. They have tasty sides... More

Albuquerque has several better-known barbeque restaurants, so upon discovering Whole Hog I was concerned that it might not measure up. I needn't have worried -- the food was tasty and the portions were huge. Both my wife and I took home more than half the meat in "doggie" bags.

Stopped in ordered my food by the pound for my hungry family, brisket, ribs, and chicken. Love the potatoes salad with bacon and six varieties of sauce (#3 is my fav). Sat down with a glass of water and before I could take a sip, my order was ready! Great service and great food!

For me, Albuquerque had never been synonymous with BBQ. Understandable but one spot was worth writing about and I've tried most all BBQ in ABQ. New location on Central a bit west of I-25 was an excellent find. Took home some bulk brisket snd pulled pork. Respectable BBQ that I'm hoping will continue to offer a quality product.

Ordered a 'Jumbo' brisket. Meager helping. What was there was pretty good. Like that they have six sauces on the table.

We have not eaten in the restaurant itself; however, we often go there for take out barbeque, and we are always pleased with the delicious quality of food! Our favorites are the pulled pork, baby back ribs, potato salad and baked beans......all very tasty and satisfying......we usually get the mild barbeque sauce although they offer several other sauces that are...

7pm Saturday evening, and after I ordered and paid, they tell me they have no more baby back ribs. Ha? These guys are supposed to be "World Class", we'll that's what their sign says anyway.Then I have to be satisfied with something else, served in a Styrofoam to go container/plate. Potato Salad and Cole slaw, portions too small, and temperature... More

The food was good. There is a choice of six barbeque sauces. I ended up mixing two to get the best flavor.

We've found our new favorite BBQ joint in the Q! The Brisket is really good as is the Pulled Pork. They have quite a few sauces to try, and they are all delicious.
