Not Dad's BBQ, but it'll do – Being from NC is something of a curse...I know good BBQ and I am always on the hunt for good pulled pork in New York. My boyfriend had been walking past this place for months and we finally tried it last week. It is certainly not as good as my Dad's but I ate so much, I was miserable. The sauce had a different consistency than I am used to, a little thicker than the vinegar base I grew up on and the sandwich came on two huge slices of Texas toast. They also have this ranch BBQ sauce and I ordered a side of that to try it out...great on the fries! I got a "hogarita" from the bar and my friend was plesantly surprised to see "beergarita" on the drink menu. In Brooklyn, we call it a margaveza but it was just as good at the Hog Pit. It was our waitress's first night on the job and it showed, but all in all it was good food, good drinks, and a good price.
The food was awful! – Perhaps the chef was once told what BBQ should taste like, but has never himself had it. This place might do better just as a bar!
GREAT TIME!! – I was there the other night & had a rocking time. The place had a great vibe… the staff and all the other patrons were very cool. Plus, the drinks were cheap & strong, I will definitely be back!
Try This Place!! – We went to the Hog Pit last Friday night. The super friendly crowd gave the place a great buzz! The menu is full of comfort food that hits the spot, such as the pulled pork and mac and cheese. The enormous portions come with a very reasonable price tag. You definitely won't leave hungry from this place. And the waitress made the evening even more special by guiding us through the menu and being super sweet! We'll be back.
$3 PBR's EVERYDAY ALL DAY – Cheap food that taste's great and tap beer. All the bartenders are really hot and friendly too. If your looking for a new spot to hang out with your friends you have to go check out the Hog Pit!!
AWESOME PLACE-GREAT ATMOSPHERE – I've been to the Hog Pit several times and each time I go it keeps getting better. They just moved in Nov. 08 from downtown and this place is no dissapointment. The food is fantastic and the staff is the best in the city. You'll always feel welcome at the Hog Pit. They have a 2 for 1 Happy Hour EVERY DAY from 5-8 and they draw and excellent crowd. They also have a lot of board games that you can play which makes for a little extra fun at the bar too. The pulled pork is ridiculous its so tender and full of flavor it will have you coming back for more every week. Do yourself a favor and check this place out, bring lots of friends and plan to stay for a long time cause you won't wanna leave!!
great business owner – It's awesome to see a business owner that is responsive I just walked in off the street I can say this is a fantastic spot.
Great BBQ – Hog Pit was exceptionally satisfying. Great food, good service, an all around good time. My friends and I tried it for the first time and we were very pleased. We look forward to coming back to Hog Pit. Loved the ribs, and their sides are very tasty. This is the spot for BBQ!
Had a Great Time – I had been to the old Hog Pit in the Meat packing and i have to say that the new place is a definite step up. while it is still country and bbq, it is no longer the dive hole in the wall that it was! Came here with friends after work last night and was really surprised at how much better (and bigger and way less hot) it is than the old location. we just chilled, played pool, and drank some beer (didnt eat) and we had a really nice time. Bartenders were all friendly, the crowd was definitely an after work crowd rather than bikers. Definitely an improvement! I will be back!
Best Time Ever! – We love this place. Karaoke tuesday was a Bast. They put the words on a 60" screen to sing along to. We had a blast!
