Whole Hog Cafe
1811 Route 70 West
Open: Lunch and dinner, daily
Price: $ BYO
Style: Casual barbecue joint with a large seat-yourself dining area comprising a mix of tables, booths and high-tops, plus several flat-screens for game days. You can’t miss the dozens of barbecue-competition trophies on display.
The Scoop: An outpost of a barbecue restaurant based in Little Rock, Arkansas, the first New Jersey Whole Hog Cafe opened in Cherry Hill in 2013 and moved a mile down the road to its current spot in 2017. There is one other NJ location in Medford.
The Menu: The specialty here, of course, is meat: pulled pork and chicken, smoked sausage, tender beef brisket and ribs. Pick your protein for a single serving, which comes with two sides and cornbread. Or, if dining family style, go for the Ultimate Platter, with three meats, four ribs, three sides and two pieces of cornbread. Sides include baked beans, mac and cheese, coleslaw, potato salad and cheesy corn. Vegetarians, take heart: Whole Hog has recently added a BBQ veggie burger.
Heads Up: If you forget to bring your own beer or wine, Wine Legend is conveniently located next door.Click here to leave a comment
