Damn their brisket was tender!! The marinade was great!!!!!!!!!!1 – I recommend their brisket, sweet potato pie was great!,baked beans were good, bathroom is clean but outside. service was great, parking lot is small but was not packed. after we ordered they quickly brought out our sides, i liked that cause i was starving. the BBQ food is way better than The Bear Pit so far.
Grave disappointment – The ribs were so tough they were almost impossible to chew.
Sauce was good, sweet and spicy, sides adequate.
Brisket was awsome!! Made my day.
Just OK, not great – Went for lunch, was not crowed. Had half-rack of spareribs. They were ok but not great. Sauce was good. A bit pricey, $21 for half of ribs (no sides) and coke with tip.
Best BBQ in Los Angeles – Let me start by saying that I was born and raised in Texas. While this BBQ is mediocre for Texas, it is the best I have had in Los Angeles. Don't listen to those saying that the brisket was dry. The brisket, ribs, and chicken were juicy and tender. The sausage was a glaring weakness and would not have sold in Texas. The sauce is very sweet and does not contain as much vinegar as what I am used to. The sides are definitely weak, except the cole slaw, which reminded me of home. The wait staff was nice and I'm sure that none was a starving actor, which I found quite refreshing.
Is it as good as what you find in small towns across Texas? No. Is it the best in Los Angeles? Definitely. It is good enough to give me my BBQ fix and that is the most I can ask given the alternative of going home to get decent BBQ.
Best BBQ in the Valley – I have tried nearly every BBQ place in the valley and Dr. Hogly Wogly's is about the best. The food never disappoints. I always get the brisket which is tender and juicy, but has also heard that the hot links, the ham and the pork are also excellent. The BBQ beans are outstanding and some of the most interesting I have ever tasted. They're just like candy. All of the other sides are quite good as well. The service is prompt and friendly. The same group of waitresses has been there forever, and they know the menu inside and out. They make you feel right at home. The restaurant itself has no ambiance or charm whatsoever, but it is clean and well maintained.
Best bbq in town, great service. – Best bar-b-que in town, sauce is delicious and the meat and nice and juicy. For a first time customer, I recommend getting the 3 way combo, you can get beef brisket, sausage link, and pork ribs. The beef brisket is to die for. Entrees come with bread and sides. DO NOT ORDER any salad from here, they don't serve it and save yourself the humiliation of being laughed at for ordering salad in a bbq place. Service is great, all the waitresses are very helpful and friendly. Price is reasonable.
That is all I can say, this place has the Best Ribs in California. Stop reading and just go eat there. The drive to the valley is worth it, even in Summer.
Just like Texas! – My husband and I "commute" to Texas for work every so often, and we've tried some GOOOOD BBQ. I'd venture to say that Dr Hogley's is on par with some of the best we've had down there. It has a real down home feel too!
very good beef, ribs etc. Get their sauce b4 you leave. – I got their beef biscuit and my friend go their ribs.
The nice thing about this place is its not a upscale claim jumper type restaurant. Hoggly Woggley is much more authentic then that. The reason being is that they are old school, they follow traditions and they have time tested recipes that modern places don't have.
very good – Just like the reviews for many other ethnic, or regional, restaurants -- the scores are very low from the transplants. I have no respect for any transplant who chooses to live in Los Angeles, yet complain about our food. There is no city in the country that can match the quality of so many specialty foods than Los Angeles. New York may be close.
That is why so many of these reviews should be ignored. I have live in Texas and this place can compete with their BBQ. Also, their is great atmosphere to the shack of a restaurant.
For the people who do not like this place, go back to Tony Roma's where you belong. That way, I will not have to wait so long for a table.
