The first time we had Hog Wild BBQ was for our office meeting..Everyone loved it. It's hard to find a good BBQ place and this is surely one of those places. The only thing I did not like was the Au Jus it was way too salty, but other than that it was wonderful.
I have eaten there on several
occasions, hoping that it would get better and it never has. They're food would be alright if they actually cooked it. But most of their food is put out cold, and when complained about it is thrown into a microwave. The management is nasty with customers, and so is the rest of the staff.
I watched the owner wipe the sweat from his brow with a towel, and then the same towel was used to wipe up a counter where the food is prepared.
They claim that everything is homestyle or homemade, but it's really just pulled from a box.
They are incredibly over priced for the service that they provide and the condition of the food. If I wanted a microwaved meal I would have stayed home with a TV dinner
I went to hogwild last week and found that the guy who ran the cart for 8 years is now in the restaurant. The food, service and the time to get your meal have been greatly improved. If you have been there and were disappointed I would definitely suggest you give them another try.
thier bbq is the best i've had in the portland area,awesome sandwhices'some of the best fries i've tasted anywhere.I'll be going back and bringing guests there.And they pile generous amounts of meat on thier sandwhiches,and i have a big appetite.
AMAZING RIBS! I got a two meat plate
with Ribs and Brisket and it was tender and delicious. The waiting time wasnt that great but it was well worth it! The staff is very friendly and welcoming.
P.S. The negative reviews need to be disregarded. They upgraded from a cart to a restaurant, thats a huge step. My friend owns a restaurant and the beginning is always rough. I will be spreading the word about these guys!
So I am not sure if anyone from Hog
Wild is reading these reviews, but some one needs to help out this place. I read the last review and I have to agree with some of the comments that reviewer left. I have been back twice since after my first review. The second visit no problems except some of the meat was not hot just warm. One of my sides, bean, was the same. The service was better then the last time but the food was still just warm.
In the last reviewer comments about hearing someone say they don't know good BBQ, let me say this first before going on. I am a certified judge in BBQ competitions and have traveled across the USA eating BBQ, so I think I might know some thing about BBQ. The meat we got on the second visit did seem to have more fat then usual. The brisket was tougher and my guess was it was not cooked long enough to get that tender state. The pulled pork was not bad but had chunks of fat in it..
One of the suggestion on the second visit they said they were going to go to a waiter style instead of ordering at the counter. Great idea since that would clear up the confusion of the orders.
On March 22 at 1150 my wife and I went for our third time to see if things inmproved. We walked in and was greeted with a sign that said please wait to be seated. We were given a seat with a menu. I was told that Alex would be our waiter. This was one of the changes that I was told about and looking forward to see anything changed. The dinning room had less then 10 people in it. My wife and I talked about what we were going to have as I watched Alex the only male wait staff. I watch Alex check on the others who had meals. I watched two other single males walk into get seated and got their order taken. I continue to watch Alex walk past and around out table with out even "I will be with you." I contnued to watch Alex talk with the other staff and manager while we waited to place our order.
After sitting there for 13 minutes and no one seem to ask about taking our order we got up and left. I found one wait staff and told them how pissed off I was that after siting there and watching others getting service we got nothing. She offered a manager but for me that was too late cause I can see the manager and wait staff watching me as I was talking.
I will one more time go back to Hog Wild for another review in about a month. Sorry but if thing dont change for this place I am afaird they will lose more business then gain.
Great food, terrible prices.
I ate at.
Great food, terrible prices.
I ate at the new sit-down version of Hog Wild last night for the first time. It's their grand opening, so I was willing to excuse the fact that they were out of mashed potatoes and bread (for a kids grilled cheese) and hot dogs. I was also willing to overlook the fact that the prices listed on the menu on their door didn't match the prices on their actual menu.
What I *can't* ignore is the fact that I paid $5.95 each for two kids' meals, and they were woefully tiny. A small cup of mac and cheese with about 10 french fries in one, and a grilled cheese made on a hamburger bun with about 10 fries in the other. SO NOT WORTH THE PRICE.
Also, they said my meal was boneless chicken breasts, but when i got home it was actually on the bone. And they forgot my barbecue sauce and my cornbread, and since my order was To-Go, it was too late to do anything about it.
Needs vast improvement if I'm going to eat there again (although the fried dill pickles were great!).
Hog Wild BBQ has improved. We at Hog Wild know that we had a rough start and we listened to what everyone was saying and worked on fixing those rough spots. Also, Everyone has been wondering where the guy from the trailer went and he's here! Things are running much smoother here!
If you like grease, this is the place.. I went to the place this evening. I bought a lb of beef and a pulled pork sandwich. I ate the beef. The beef was about 40% fat with a couple ounces of grease in the bottom of the container. It was so nasty I do not think I will ever buy food there again.
GREAT FOOD BIG servings. Hard to find if you don't know where to look but once you find it you'll never go anywhere else for BBQ. Their pulled pork is so yummy and the beans are awesome
