super staff and phenomenal food. I have tried their signature BBQ (and selection of sauces), their salads, vegie sides and fried oysters...all terrific. It would be a mistake not to try them

If you are not looking for this restaurant, you might miss it......which would be a terrible choice on anyone's behalf. All I can say is try it, and you will not be disappointed. They have great BBQ, but it is the other stuff I enjoy so much as well. HogsHead's version of the Cuban is something they are trying to... More

Walking into new territory, I almost missed this wonder as its a small joint sandwiched between two Asian establishments. Jodi was my server. Ûber nice, professional and efficient. I mentioned it was my first time. She smiled and directed me to the chalkboard. I ordered everything from the board: shrimp corn chowder and Cordon Hog. Wow. The chowder was thick... More

We went here for dinner on the suggestion of other reviews and we were glad we did. The cafe is located in a small strip mall and has about 14 tables. There was a short wait when we arrived so we wandered through the Asian supermarket next door to kill time. The bbq here is superb and the service is... More

I was recently in Richmond to do a little sightseeing and to visit a few craft breweries. After the canal walk and a few beers (at Stone...good beer and at Strangeways...very good beer) my girlfriend and I stopped off at Hogshead Cafe because Trip Advisor reviews suggested it was better than Alamo BBQ and Buz and Ned's and because we...

This place is small and easy to miss. There's not a lot of seating but it was easy to get a table on a weeknight. I had the barbecue plate and my husband had the rib/barbecue combo. The food is wonderful and there's a lot of it. The beans and coleslaw are excellent as well. Our waitress was nice and... More

I had me some ribs and I must say they're on the level of Buds And Ness and for those who ate there knows that once you get to eating you got to be careful not to bite your finger. Nothing like good ol pork on your fork

Food is great. Looking for a quality lunch and not fast food this is the place to go. I always make this a stop when in the west end.

We used Yelp and TripAdvisor to find a good BBQ restaurant close to our hotel. This place was great! Best shrimp po boy I ever tasted. Everything was perfect - from the service, ambience, craft beers, delicious food through desert. If I am in the area again, I will definitely return.
