Absolutely loved the buttermilk fried chicken - 2 of us shared a bucket with a side of fries, but it was more than we could manage s I had to bring some home. Just delicious, juicy chicken in a great crumb coating. Beer was good too, with a choice of 3 on tap, a blonde, an IPA and a craft... More

Haven't been for quite a while and the menu changed. No more 2 or 3 meat platters with your choice if sides. Very disappointed. Had the Pulled Pork, was luke warm. Corn bread was small and dry on the side, sat out too long? Friend had the same and wasn't impressed like we used to be when we went over... More

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.
