I am a frequent diner at Hog Tails. I love the place, a little hole in the wall in a strip mall that serves great smoked meat and southern vegetables. But when I went yesterday for lunch, I was shocked at the new menu. A pulled pork sandwich and ice tea, with tax and tip, will now put you back... More

Wow - Great take out... We ordered the BBQ platter and it was awesome. Best corn bread too! It is moist and delicious. All the meats were excellent. The restaurant tended well to the gluten allergies in our group.

Reliably authentic, reliably good bbq. Surprising location, hidden away off the beaten path. Meat platters rule and really memorable collards are a highlight among the sides.

A friend who ran a restaurant once mentioned that the most important rule of running a restaurant is keeping the flair consistent and I must admit that I have been most disappointed with what Hog Tails has become. The first couple of times we were there, the food and service was amazing. After that the service and food has gone... More

I ordered food from their catering menu for an event at work. The food was fantastic! I got great compliments for the choice. One of the attendees is a very big BBQ guy and he couldn't stop eating.

This was our second time getting Family Banquet takeout from this unique and very good for anyone that likes Southern BBQ. They also has a downtown Kitchener location and they cater.

Move over KFC, there is better player in town and the fried chicken they serve is a lot better in taste and quality. We have been there a couple of times and have always enjoyed the food. It is a small place and therefore can get quite crowded but well worth the sit-in. The buttermilk fried chicken pieces are amazing... More

We drove out of our way to visit this place based on the menu posted on their website to try their specialty "Pig'sTails" -- a rare delicacy in this Germanic/Mennonite/Amish part of the Province. When we sat down in this modest and very basic facility in a local strip mall that consisted of a bar and tables for maybe 20... More
