Stopped in on a Saturday for a quick lunch on way to work. Ordered BBQ plate w/fried chicken breast and paid requested price for my meal. When my plate was brought to table had a chicken thigh on it, so I politely told waitress that I ordered a chicken breast. She immediately told me that a breast was 50 cents... More

We have been certified BBQ judges since the 1990s and know what we're talking about. This BBQ is usually mediocre at best and awful at worst.

Scrumptious down home cooked food. Fresh sides, great hushpuppies, lean pork and good portions. Very friendly service.

Looking at all the reviews I decided to try Hog Heaven. The BBQ sandwich was moist but no flavor. Hush puppies were excellent. Waitress very friendly along with all staff. You have to order at counter , they bring to table. Everything is fresh made here so don't be in a hurry. I would suggest trying here ..just add sauce... More

Escaping the wrath of Hurricane Matthew took us to visit in-laws in Durham, and a trip to Durham would not be complete with going to Hog Heaven Bar-B-Q. It has been many years since we'd eaten there, but all the great memories of this place came back in a hurry! This is some of the very best bar-b-q anywhere! The... More

Was on the northern side of Durham and was looking for a barbecue restaurant, when I stumbled upon Hog Heaven. First I was a little worried with the look and location but I saw a steady flow of people in and out so I decided to try same. The health code was a 97.0. The restaurant has a menu board... More

Servings were gracious. Went to the drive through, very busy night, had an unusually long wait. Rewarded for our patience with a free dessert. Really, for two ladies, two p!plates were almost more than we could eat. Very good food, loved their sauce (it was on the side).

My husband and I are NOT fans of the whole “Order-at-the-Counter” thing. That’s the sole reason we’ve not tried several popular area restaurants, even though we’ve seen the good reviews and heard great things from friends. It inevitably feels awkward. If I’m going to pay for a meal in a restaurant I want to be seated and treated. Bring me... More
