We recently came here for Brian’s friend’s birthday – it seems like the boys really love this place! It is probably one of the best places to take a big group of guys, I realize. Anyway, they shared the ridiculously huge Mammoth Platter ($99) which comes with so much meat. It also comes with 6 sides.
One of our friends tried the Flat Line Burger challenge (which is a double burger patty between two grilled sandwiches…my heart hurts already just thinking about it) – for $18, if you can finish it in 5 minutes (which includes the side you choose with your burger) then it’s free, plus you get a Hog Shack T-Shirt. It doesn’t seem like a lot of people have been able to complete it, but here is our friend lookin’ a lil shameful.
My Burnt Ends were amazingly tender and fatty, as they are the fattier parts of the
rib end brisket (Thanks John for the clarification!). There is a nice lightly smoked taste to it. I think that the BBQ sauce was perfect, not too much to give it a bit of a tang. My sides were yam fries and coleslaw. Loved this platter.
Probably not something I can have every day, unless they decide to invent titanium hearts that prevent cloggage and cholesterol, but definitely a must when you’re at Hog Shack.
