I like the place but I don't like the food. The mac and cheese didn't have real cheddar, the mashed potatoes had no flavor. The chicken fingers were pretty good and the 2 beers I had were warm. I like the staff though. they were cool. It's too bad the food isn't that great. Don't get me wrong the food isn't horrible just not great. I would say average. I am a born and raised new yorker not an out of towner.

I love reading posts from others. One guy from Mass said that his meal blew. What the fuck does he know? He's from Mass, addicted to the bum red sox and probably a deuschbag. This place is great. It's in the heart of the meat packing district and offers southern food to the peak. If your in the meat packing district better known as bridge and tunnel district, you have limited options , most of which run 50 a plate and up and you get this little meal made by some schmuck from one of those food network shows that got cut half way through. The hog pit offers pabst in a can for $3. I love it! It was always a great place to get drunk b4 you headed over the the village idiot which charged $5 a PITCHER. The food rocks. Forget what these out of town dips say. Good juke box, and cladly dressed patrons always makes for good viewing.

Nothing bugs me more than so-called experts pontificating on what "authentic" barbeque is and how there is no decent BBQ in NYC. I'm from Massachusetts for crying out loud so what do I know? It either tastes good or it doesn't. My meal at the Hog Pit last Sunday, however, totally turned me into one of those people that I hate. The place seemed authentic -- the decor is roadhouse-chic and our waitress was good and totally cute -- but the food itself just blew. My friends ribs had a nice texture -- it had obviously been slow-roasted. But it had no flavor, despite the mountain of sauce they put on it. Same with my pulled pork: tasteless if it weren't for the barbeque sauce. Clearly they are roasting the meat in an oven and not in a smoker and then using liquid smoke and sauce to cover for the inadequacy. (See? I'm totally talking like one of those loathsome BBQ experts! Damn you Hog Pit!!!) The sides were okay. The portions were large. But ultimately we totally overpaid for our meal.

I can't believe these bad reviews! I love the Hog Pit and highly reccomend the cheese grits, fried corn, ribs, pulled pork, hell anything i've eaten here has left me satisfied. i wish their prices were a little lower, but I've never left feeling hungry, in fact I usually have leftovers to bring home with me so it's worth it. I hate to talk-up a place recomended by that horse-face Rachel Ray, but she was on the mark with this one. It beats Dallas for sure, and even Dinosaur left me wishing i'd eaten here.

Everything we had was greasy, the sauce on the ribs tasted like it was out of a can, and made with not even a hint of what reall BBQ is like. It tasted like a vegetarian made it. This is what doing BBQ in a big city with high rents can do to good food; Pass this one up unless you want to pay too much and to eat in the trendy area.

The meat on the ribs was tender but lacked taste. The sauce had no flavor and it appears they do not season the ribs. The mac and cheese was very watery. It is not worth it for the price. Best to stick to a cheeseburger there. The food was disappointing. The staff was friendly and their beer prices average for a place on the westside. The place gets packed but I have not yet figured out why.
