This is an awesome dinner joint. The joint is old school decor and very clean. Service was awesome. The burger and wings were the bomb! The fries were fresh cut, just a tad cold; but were good!

I been seeing this restaurant advertised on my Facebook for months now. My Family and I drove an hour and a half to eat here for the first time. Wow, so disappointed. After we were seated, we waited ten minutes for someone to take our...drink order. When our unfriendly waitress finally came, we were ready to order our meals. The fried pickles are delicious. We asked for the cheese curds but they didn't have any. BUT, after two tables that sat down after us received their meals before us. I asked the waitress where our food was and she told us that it's been sitting in the window!!! What?! So she brings our food, very rude. Not offering us refills on our drinks. My Husband ordered the Philly Cheese steak, his sandwich was made with pulled pork and not steak! He was so upset. He didn't eat his sandwich, he said it was nasty. My mother ordered the wings and coleslaw. She really enjoyed the coleslaw but her wings were cold from sitting in the window!! I ordered the pulled pork sandwich and the pork had no taste and the bbq sauce was watery. The French fries are nice and crispy. The service is terrible! Then to the best part, our check came and O.M.G $73.12 for the 3 of us!!! Are you kidding me?! That is ridiculous stupid. We definitely will not return. Way over priced food, terrible service, and the food is eh. So sad.More

Stopped on our way to Little switzerland for a bite. Heard it was good... and it WAS! BBQ pork sandwiches and Brisket were over the top..... Great taste and plenty of meat on the bun. House made chips were also terrific.

We ate there for the first time a few weeks ago, and I couldn't say enough good things about it. Today, my meal was awful. The best onion rings I had ever had, were now over breaded and hard as a rock. My pulled pork...was tough, stringy and cold. The pub chips were flavorless, and the cole slaw was terrible.More

Sad. Really wanted to try this place as there is always a line. Waited 1hr and 15 min for the lunch special after ordering. The waiter did not come back but once and said waiting on one of the entrees. At some point the other...waitresses stopped making eye contact and it became awkward we didn’t have food. Left something for drink and left. Others sat down and ate and left while we got nothing. Won’t try again.More

Got here Friday. April 2, 2021. Arrived at 5:30. Got on waitlist for two people and gave our phone number to be called. Was told the wait was for 45 minutes. We were not seated until 8:40!! Three hours and ten minutes later. Was told...they were out of ribs!! What?? They should have announced that they were out of their nightly featured entree when they ran out about 7:30 per the waitress. We could have left earlier and had a meal somewhere else. But instead, they don't tell you until you are seated and hoping you will stay and order something else. We ordered the chopped brisket plate. Twice, it came out COLD!!! Asked to see the owner. The owner came out after a fifteen minute wait. Said it would be replaced and the cost was on him. Ok great but we expected fresh food, not the same food all three times to the table that must have been put under a heat lamp. Plate was warm but the food was still the same as twice before, not fresh replaced food as promised (I put an indentation in the brisket and slaw. It was still there when brought back all three times)and it was still Cold!! Owner touched my shredded brisket (it looked like dry sawdust)and said it was hot to him and made a scene in front of other customers. It was just as COLD as before. We left and will never return. That was food sickness waiting to happen. Unsanitary and lack of respect to the customer.More

Arrived at Honey Hog with NO COVID safe practices in use. This was a day after the NC government further increased safety requirements. The owner (un-masked) was approaching each table to speak directly to customers. I asked why he or any of his staff (and...most customers in waiting) were not wearing masks or social distancing. He replied, “That they’d let their guard down” and returned to ‘normal seating’. He proceeded to approach other customers with no further improvement. We left. Hopefully the Cleveland County Health Department will do it’s duty.More

On 8/22/20 went to The Honey Hog at 2:30 p.m.; the place was packed and NO ONE; I MEAN NO ONE was wearing a mask.!!! Servers were not wearing masks, the cashier was not wearing a mask, and the customers waiting for a table were...not wearing masks. No one was social distancing. When I finally got the attention of one of the servers who came to the front to deposit her tip; when asked if anyone was wearing a mask and she said, "no". At that point we left!!! I guess Cleveland County/The Honey Hog dismiss the Corona Virus. It was very disappointing. We went back to Burke County and ate at Treat and everyone was wearing a mask and even had sanitizer at each table and there was a lot of social distancing. The restaurant was set up to provide customers with a safe environment.More

Heard about how great the brisket burger is and was excited to try it...Ordered it with no slaw and, guess what, it came with slaw. Made the waitress award that my order was wrong. When she returned with my "correct" order, the slaw had been...scraped off the top of the meat and the same bun had been placed back on the burger...which was obvious because there was slaw stuck to the cut side of the bun!! Would have sent it back again but they probably would have spit in my food and I didn't want to take that chance. Needless to say, I was VERY disappointed!! Your may have a good experience, just hope they get your order right the first time or you might find yourself having the same experience I had. As far as I'm concerned, I'll never go back.More

To avoid a long drawn out story here it.... Service not great (that is being generous) and they were not busy. Served nasty cold fries, they did bring new ones after my son was finished with his food was told they would not charge but...when I went to pay the guy said "but the frys come with the plate" I guess he figured it out. Seemed to be run by several young guys this evening that did not have it together. Was my second and last visitMore

Good Carolina BBQ, burgers, great wings. Have been several times and more recently got take out. Cute homey interior. However, very disappointed at last visit that none of staff were wearing masks. Risky for the staff more than anyone.

I drive 30 minutes to get the "Cheddar Burger" and it's well worth it. Service is always great and people are friendly. Onion rings are ok,but not for what they charge for the amount you get. Desserts are good. Get the Chips,they are awesome. Served...with Ranch Dressing.More

We ordered the pulled pork sandwich with a side of fries. For me, the flavor was just ok. The meat was kind of tough and not really any smoke taste at all. I had heard this was some of the best BBQ in the area....I had high hopes, but it was ok at best. The sauce that came with the sandwich was good. The fries were decent. We had to get the food curbside and that may have made a difference. I will give them another try in the future, when I can go inside and eat.More

This was our first trip to Honey Hog Restaurant. We were not disapppointed! Service was Great, from the front Greeter to our Waitress , Miranda Lee! The only problem we encountered was our GPS on our phone. It led us at least 30 miles out...of the way to the restaurant! I called the restaurant and a very nice man (Sorry! didn't get his name) answered and said "You're on the right road. Turn around until you see the Fire station,we're across the road. If you have a problem,call back." We turned around and finally found The Honey Hog ! So glad we did! Miranda Lee (our waitress) was Great! I had the Chicken Salad in a wrap. Outstanding!! My friend had the Brisket Basket. He loved it! Love the "country feeling" Will definitely be back! Only negative...is that they need a Bigger brighter Outside Sign, so it's easier to find.More

My name is Tina. This is my second time at Honey Hog. The food is amazing, the atmosphere is just as unbelievable as the food. The staff and owner are the most upmost heartfelt caring people. If you plan on coming to Honey Hog expect...the wait. We were told 2 hours and we were sat just 2 minutes after that. You will great the most amazing food, the atmosphere is amazing and the staff and owners the beyond words, caring, respectful, heartfelt people you will every meet. We were the Feb. 29, 2020 at 5pm. Please be considerate at this time because so many people are there to enjoy the best food and experience also. For people that do not have the patience or consideration for how the staff are taking care of each individual guest please do not complain or harass them or the owners. We had only 3 people with us and we saw the empty tables due to the larger parties that were waiting to be seated and we understand they are waiting on other tables to finish to accommodate these large parties. I am so disappointed to see people complaining and giving the owners and staff a hard time. Please be patient, and consider what the owners and staff are trying to provide you which is the best bbq, food you will ever have. Thank you to the owners, staff, and everyone involved at Honey Hog and the future Nannie's Fish Camp & Chicken Champ restaurant. We will continue to come and support your resturants. You all provide us with the best food around. Thank you again.More
