Reviewed yesterday NEW

I had the beef brisket - it was dry, tough, stringy and totally without flavor. Do yourself a favor and drive to Austin, Texas, for the barbecue at Aaron Franklin's place, or over to Lockhart, Texas, to Kreuz Market. Both places use prime quality beef. I'm giving the restaurant two stars simply because it's not the poorest quality barbecue I've... More

We eat here at least once or twice a month. Everything is delicious. They have the best brisket in town, it's sliced not chopped. Quick and friendly service.

They have 6 different sauces. The Sweet Sauce was Excellent. Meat was very tender and had a great taste. The Ribs were a... More

This is a simple no frills place with terrific food at a great price right in the heart of Santa Fe rail yard and Guadalupe Street district. Easy access and terrific service. The owner is super friendly and always gives you a great deal for the price. The pulled pork is some of the best in the city. They cater... More

Good fast food for bbq pork or chicken. Everything tasted good, it is a "fast food" joint, but pulled pork sandwich was pretty good. Chicken on the salad was also good.

I love the pulled pork sandwich! It's so good I have not wanted to try anything else. The pork ribs look delicious. A couple sitting next to me loved them. The six BBQ sauces help to spice things up if one is so inclined.

My sister and I happened upon this restaurant and sure glad we did. We both had the pulled pork and it was melt in your mouth and so tasty with a side of coleslaw and we shared the mac & cheese. She is from Kansas City and I am from Fort Collins. We have never had such great pulled pork.... More

In a city that's full of New Mexican, if you love BBQ Whole Hog will not disappoint. I've used them for catering and just for a great meal. Hearty, clean food - the is the stop for all BBQ lovers. Centrally located to the Santa Fe Plaza.

The best BBQ I've ever had used to come from my own smoker. OK, I know I shouldn't brag, but it's true. My signature flavor is to smoke with mesquite, but that's mostly a Texas thing. The next best BBQ I've had is served at the Whole Hog Cafe on Guadalupe here in Santa Fe. I believe they use apple... More
