A Must Try!! – We went to Hog Heaven Bar-B-Q 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 being super sweet! We'll be back.
Thank you for your kind words. - Mark
Exceptionally Satisfying BBQ – Hog Heaven 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 Heaven. Loved the ribs, and their sides are very tasty. This is the spot for BBQ!
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a great review. - Mark
Excellent bbq and scratch made sides – I travel for a living and consider myself somewhat of a "professional" eater with a particular affinity for BBQ and homemade side dishes.
I happened onto this place at home in Durham several months ago and I can honestly say that they "fill the bill" in both categories........excellent bbq and real, scratch made sides and desserts.
Everytime I'm there, I can hear them chopping BBQ so I know it's fresh cooked on site. You can smell the BBQ cooking in any direction.
The price is right too
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a very gracious review. - Mark
A great place for good home cooking. – Hog Heaven Bar-B-Q is a great little place. The employees are probably the most down-to-earth, nice people ever. I love to come here for my lunch hour because they are quick with the orders and I always have a good experience. Plus they are very reasonable with the prices. So if you are in the mood for bbq or just some good southern cooking I recommend Hog Heaven. They have great food and plenty to chose from. If you have never eaten there-I recommend trying the bbq or chicken. And please, try the sweet tea! I swear it is the best I have ever had!
Thank you for a great review! - Mark
I'm glad that you do stop by from time to time. I'm glad our service is fast for you and please let us know what we can do to make Hog Heaven Bar-B-Q one of your favorites. We value the suggestions from customers and try to apply that to future customers. - Mark
Not great but good – Got the family pack with chopped BBQ. Sides and puppies were good, but the Q had very little smoke flavor and no "pink" evident that is usually present in real smoked meat. Don't know if they boil it or what, but it isn't smoked for hours on end. Needs lots of sauce to make it edible. Many other much better places around.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We do not advertise that we have smoked meats and do not sell bbq that the real flavor of bbq is covered up with smoke. The pink that you are referring to is maybe a smoke ring. Our bbq is chopped just before you get it and our bbq is hand chopped all day, everyday. I've never heard of anyone boiling pork but maybe it's something you are used to getting. All of our pork is cooked on grills, not boiled in pots. Our bbq is pure, fresh bbq pork that is freshly chopped. Next time in the area, I would be more than willing to show you how our bbq is cooked. Just ask for me, Mark Johnson and I will show you that we are worthy of more than just two stars on the fact you didn't taste smoke. Please grade us on who we are and what we do, not who or what you want us to be. Thank you for your review and I do look forward to giving you a tour in our restaurant. - Mark
Best BBQ place around!!! – This is the BEST BBQ place in town, the food is always good, hot, and fresh! The sauce is wonderful!
Thank you for your kind review! - Mark
Great food and is always willing to help the community out – Hog Heaven has always helped out through the community in helping to raise money for different events. Our loccal Vol. Fire Dept. in Bahama has held many family nights there to raise money for our station. The food is GREAT, as close to your momma's cooking as you can get. Service is always good and you will leave full all the while looking forward to the next visit! If you can't eat that banana pudding now order it to go or you will be sorry! Yum Yum!!
Thank you so much for the great review. We really do appreciate your kind words. - Mark
I'm a Regular! – I love their BBQ and everything else on the menu! But I think I could eat their chicken and dumplings, candied yams and squash for dinner every day. (I do average getting that once or twice a week and BBQ that often too!) You can dine in, order at the window outside, or drive to a window. Makes it simple, it's fast, and you can't find better food.
Wow. Thank you for taking the time to leave us a great review. - Mark
Great Food! – Not only is this the best BBQ in Durham but you have to try their granny potatoes! Everything on their menu is great southern, down-home cooking! The owners are great people that are also very involved in their community and help with local non-profit organizations and events. We love this place :))
Thank you very much for your kind words. Hog Heaven Bar-B-Q tries very hard to work with every organization to help make their event the best it can possibly be. We will always be here to help in any way possible for all you try to make a difference. Thank you very much for a most gracious review!
