Hog and Hominy Ratings and Reviews
This was our first visit to Hog and Hominy. We had a lovely time. The food and service was excellent. It was a cold evening outside. We were seated near the entrance so I had to keep my wrap on. It was also loud around us, so difficult visiting with our friends. In spite of this WE WILL try again! We’ll just try a different location for seating. We enjoyed the evening.
We had heard and read this was a top place to go. This place is sooo overrated. We had a reservation for 7:45 but called and confirmed for 7pm. We arrived early 6:25 and they said they most likely could take us before 7pm. We were finally seated at 7:50. No place to sit and wait, we finally convinced them we could sit near the service kitchen while having a drink waiting for our table, The front of the house has no clue what they are doing or how to manage table turnover.
We had 3 different pizza’s and 1 polenta with fried egg and brisket, The pizza was Luke warm and tasteless and the polenta was lumpy with enough brisket that would only cover a half sandwich.
I would never waste my time going there again nor should anyone else.
I was in Memphis on business and went about finding a place near my hotel using my Open Table app. Voila - the first restaurant that came up (since it was the closest) was Hog & Hominy. So I booked myself and since I was a party of 1, they had a place set for me at the bar. Chris and Tina, the bartenders, took exceptional care of me. I ordered the wood fire oysters and the meatballs that included guanciale (pork cheek) in the mixture. It was absolutely fantastic! I'm no stranger to Italian meatballs but this far exceeded anything I've had before. It's a MUST. This was a terrific laid-back place that should be on anyone's foodie destination while in Memphis. 5 stars!
My friend and I had a delicious brunch. She had never eaten here before and I had only twice for dinner. What a fun, relaxed and interesting atmosphere. Lots of action to watch but not in your face disturbing. We both needed a moment to get away from work and have fun!!
We started with coffee (delicious) I believe it’s French Truck coffee. (The best!) Next were bloody Mary’s and the oven grilled oysters. Spicy and cheesy. Very good.
I ordered the steak and eggs and she the pizza with the drizzle of honey on it. That pizza is so very good with a mix of sweet and savory.
Seems like many of their dishes have a spicy kick. Love it! We’ll be back !!
Great as usual. The pizza was yummy and I am so grateful that you use local organic ingredients. My cocktail was so good and the I appreciate the small things like the artisan quality of cherries you use. Makes all the difference. A real treasure for the Memphis community. Keep up the good work.
One of my all-time favorites in Memphis. The cocktails, pizzas, and appetizers are all great, I'm never disappointed. The Red Eye pizza (pork belly, with an egg on top) is my favorite - I like to try new ones occasionally, but that's the one I always go back to. On weekends the place can get a little loud & crowded, but it's a nice space, and if you go at off times it's more relaxed.
Overall it was a good time. The cocktails are amazing. They put a lot of effort into their drinks and it shows. The food is good, a little pricey. The night I went, it was really loud and hard to have a conversation without speaking up. There was a lot of back ground noise where I was sitting.
We ate at H&H on a Saturday night, and this HAS to be the noisiest restaurant on a Saturday night in the whole city. If noise bothers you, maybe a table in the back would be better. Now, the noise level can contribute to misunderstood orders, as probably happened to us. One of our pizzas came out wrong, and I suspect it was because the waitress didn't hear it properly. The situation was remedied quickly though, so all was fine.
Food is good and creative, but everytime I've eaten there, I've found many of the dishes to be too salty. I've never told them to hold the salt, because of my other dining guests, but the oysters are WAY too salty. And my biscuit gnocchi were on the salty side too.
Other than that, they do a good job of getting your food out to you quickly, so if you're looking for a place to linger, H&H probably isn't a good option for you, at least on Saturday night.
Our waitress was good, but could have been more attentive (she could have sold two more glasses of wine had she been) and in my opinion there's NO excuse for putting a check on the table while diners are still having dessert.
