Hottie Hawg’s BBQ
I recently met a friend for lunch at the new Hottie Hawg’s BBQ on the west side off Bolton Rd. They have a huge smoker on a trailer out back and I was sure that was a good sign as I eased in to the place. Nice bar with liquor, spacious set up with plenty of room for big and small parties to dine. They have a mustard sauce and a sweet, thicker BBQ sauce with a slight kick to it. We had some smoked wings to start but at this point, the only wings I like are Fox Bros…it’s just a fact that those are the best wings in Atlanta. I had the pulled pork plate with beans and potato salad while my friend had the sliced brisket with Brunswick stew and collards. The pork was awesome, nice and warm with big chunks of bark and tender smoked meat; I tried his brisket and I’ll say it was very good as well…huge portions! The beans were not sweet like a backyard BBQ; they were black and pinto with out all the sweet which was a nice change of pace actually. The potato salad was great; you just need to try it out for yourself. I’m not a Texas Toast fan but you get a big slice of that with your meal and I’ll say this trip to Hottie Hawg’s filled me up and was pretty impressive. The mustard sauce on the pork was a nice change since we don’t see the mustard around here too much.
We were waited on by some cute young ladies who were dressed for summer time on a rather cold day. Oh well, it’s nice to have some scenery while feasting on your BBQ lunch! They did a good job with this place; it’s a joint but done up nicely and I’ll definitely go back in the future. Give it a try…I give it an A minus.
