We were there for lunch on a Sunday and it was busy, but they found a table for us and service was was very good. The restaurant is austere and businesslike but pleasant enough. I ordered St. Louis ribs. For me they were a little sweeter and not as spicy as I might like and a bit dry but pretty... More

The sign reads a taste of Texas in California and it didn't lie - as a business traveler who loves BBQ I've heard that boast before but hog wild in placerville did not disapointed - the brisket was amazing and the ribs.... there isn't enough words to express how great they were. The only problem was I loved it so... More

this was truly one of the highlights of our last trip to California! Unsuspecting, by the side of the road - who knew that Hog Wild would blow our BBQ minds! We turned up for dinner one evening and the waitress informed us that a few of the items had sold out already (everything is made fresh and when it... More

Being from the south, my husband and I have been generally disappointed in BBQ out here, but this place rivals what we were used to in Georgia. NO complaints! We've been here twice. Our first visit, we intended to order pulled pork, but they were out of it, so we got brisket instead. So good! Next visit, brisket again. I'm... More

Mouth-watering pulled pork, brisket and ribs, but was also very impressed by the quality of the sides! Reasonable prices and friendly service. This is a must if you're stopping through Placerville!

Need I say more? OK 2 dollar brisket tacos with BBQ sauce regular or spicy sour cream and mango salsa. All condiments are on the side and at request. They are tasty and price is right. I smoke a lot of meat and BBQ a lot at home so I usually don't do BBQ places because I prefer mine over... More

This was the 2nd year in a row that we had a large group meet @ Hog Wild BBQ before we attended the Christmas musical @ Green Valley Community Church.

Being a resident of Texas, we didn't have high hopes. But, it was well rated, so we dropped in for lunch. There was no reason for pause! Really good BBQ, even on the ceasar salad that was topped with smoked chicken. Sometimes, BBQ is too smoky for my stomach, but this had great bar-b-que flavor without being overpowering. My husband... More

Have been here many times. Food is pretty good and service is great. Beer/wine prices are ok but a little high but then most places charge a lot for alcohol because- they can! Hey, they make more on alcohol at all restaurants than their food. Ribs are ok. Eat something else.
