The food is really tasty, it is plentiful, and the service is excellent. What else can one ask for? Good bbq at a BBQ restaurant is why you go there. A good sign. Several police officers were eating there while we ate. Thought that was a good sign. You can't go wrong at Warthog.

My first time and likely my last eating here. My coworker and I were grabbing lunch to go. It was $30 for the chicken meal, a side of brisket, and a side of mashed potatoes/gravy. When you do the math I paid about $15 for a small container of meat and a small side of potatoes. After my food was... More

Sorry, but we tried the brisket sandwich and we were disappointed. It was pretty dry and not a whole lot of flavor. Also, the fries were over the top oily and mushy. However, the potato salad was good. I liked the overall atmosphere of the dining area, and the service was quick and friendly. Overall, not a great value and... More

GROSS. No smoke flavor at all. If we wanted baked bbq we could have went home. Beans were NASTY. Girl on the register rude. Next time we will take the time and drive to Kent and get us some real bbq at BBQ PETES!

Had tried Warthog a number of years ago, and decided to stop on my way through Fife. Walking into the building you are immediately met with the overpowering smell of BBQ. The seating is rustic, sort of a smaller version of Famous Dave's. The counter area is cluttered and could use a better layout. There were 5 people waiting for... More

Moved here from the south and let's face it...hard to find BBQ that compares. Gave this place a try without checking TripAdvisor first. Disappointing!!! Brisket was a lot of fat, felt like I was eating pork. Cornbread was good but honey butter was so hard it couldn't be spread. My son had the ribs which he liked. Prices were high... More

Went here for lunch. I had the brisket sandwich with mac and cheese and an ice tea. At nearly $20, I expected my lunch to be incredible. While it was pretty good and I thought the interior to be interesting, the cost is a big deterrent on repeat visits.

Stopped in for dinner as we were feeling the need for some BBQ. I ordered the chicken and ribs and my husband ordered the brisket. We were underwhelmed. The ribs were tender but fatty; the chicken was a bit dry and the brisket very chewy. The side was also average (cole slaw, beans). I would have to say the best... More

Pretty average. The ribs on the in house picture looked like a rack of baby side ribs. What we got were over boiled little smoke flavored side ribs. The chicken and ribs combo found chicken quite dry. I regret not selecting the smoked prime rib. The BBQ sauce was tangy and tasty. The beans were a smaller size serving but... More

After eating here I can think of many places I should have gone for a great burger (all of them in Vegas). Burger was to greasy which overtook what used to be a great smoked flavor.
