Black Hog BBQ & Bar Restaurant Review

: As is often the case, good news spreads, and Black Hog BBQ & Bar launched another outpost in Ijamsville, just down the road from Frederick. A much larger eatery and one that features an open kitchen, this Black Hog carries virtually the same menu as its sibling, though it seems to have grown in size and scope. An absolute must is the chef’s Luke’s Burger, overstuffed with a meat patty plus a pile of pulled smoked beef brisket. St. Louis ribs, either Memphis dry or Kansas City wet, come in generous portions; the former brings flavors that are part sweet, part hot and totally tempting. You will find the expected meat choices of beef brisket, pulled pork, smoked sausage and pit ham, plus chili, salads, gumbo, hot wings, grilled chicken and simple sandwiches. Desserts are made fresh daily and may include a Key lime pie and a Mississippi mud cake, all chocolate and marshmallow fluff. Like brews? Check out Black Hog’s line of beers. Also located at 118 S. Market St., Frederick, 240-436-6080.
