This place was BUSY.. But they get the food out quickly. Good fast service and good food. We both had to get a box to go.

We've eaten here 3-4 times a year since they originally opened. Always had rave reviews for quality and quantity. They've always been a little pricier, but always worth it until now. The meat used to fall out of the sandwiches as you ate them. My wife and I both had their sliced brisket sandwich today. There was just enough meat,... More

Was in town for my daughter's volleyball tournament. Decided to stop in for lunch. Had an awesome meal. Great atmosphere. Even pads in our booth for extra cushion. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who appreciates good bbq. Ask to try their homemade hot sauce. You won't be disappointed!

I had the brisket with a side of mashed potatoes...What I got was 4 small pieces of brisket that had no flavor and a cup of mashed potatoes that were luke warm.... More

I have dined here several times in the past with mixed results. Friday was definitely a down day for good BBQ. The brisket was tough and had no flavor and the chicken was dry and tasted old.

The food is really tasty, it is plentiful, and the service is excellent. What else can one ask for? Good bbq at a BBQ restaurant is why you go there. A good sign. Several police officers were eating there while we ate. Thought that was a good sign. You can't go wrong at Warthog.

My first time and likely my last eating here. My coworker and I were grabbing lunch to go. It was $30 for the chicken meal, a side of brisket, and a side of mashed potatoes/gravy. When you do the math I paid about $15 for a small container of meat and a small side of potatoes. After my food was... More

Sorry, but we tried the brisket sandwich and we were disappointed. It was pretty dry and not a whole lot of flavor. Also, the fries were over the top oily and mushy. However, the potato salad was good. I liked the overall atmosphere of the dining area, and the service was quick and friendly. Overall, not a great value and... More

GROSS. No smoke flavor at all. If we wanted baked bbq we could have went home. Beans were NASTY. Girl on the register rude. Next time we will take the time and drive to Kent and get us some real bbq at BBQ PETES!

Had tried Warthog a number of years ago, and decided to stop on my way through Fife. Walking into the building you are immediately met with the overpowering smell of BBQ. The seating is rustic, sort of a smaller version of Famous Dave's. The counter area is cluttered and could use a better layout. There were 5 people waiting for... More
