    Hog & Hominy serves Edge burgers Thursday through Saturday after 9 p.m. at the restaurant’s back porch bar, so plan weekends accordingly.

    They only serve cheap beers (PBR, Miller High Life, and Coors) and brown liquors — the drinks of choice of hipsters everywhere — and offer a handful of trendy menu items, like boiled peanuts and Frito pie.

    This is definitely our best new restaurant. Michael Hudman and Andrew Ticer's pork-centric restaurant has everybody going hog-wild.

    So, I'll start with the only warning. It's loud. I went with one friend and we had to lean over the table to hear each other during part of the meal. She never heard the waitress all night (who was very nice and informative, but soft-spoken). Now that that's out of the way, though...yum! We had cocktails, pizza, and a couple of small plates. The cocktails were both creative and balanced- good use of ingredients and some very clever combinations. They also have a nice array of very classic cocktails and creative ones, so if you're not keen to try something too new, they've got you covered. Starters: We began with the spicy sweetbreads. Wow! They were amazing. Crisp on the outside with a melty interior. I could have eaten them all night. We followed that up with Roman gnocchi which was like a light, pan-fried polenta. Creamy and great texture. Pizza: we had the Thunderbird. The crust at the middle wasn't quite as crisp as the exterior, but the flavor combos were great. The spicy honey was both subtle and fantastic. We shouldn't have eaten the whole thing, but it was too good. This is definitely a place to visit.

    A meal for three of us totalled over $110. Individual pizzas start at $14, with my wife's gluten free pizza costing $20. I ordered the beef cheddar dog and it was very small. Not something that would be considered a meal. The sweetbread appetizer was very good, but was $12. Finally, the single biggest reason I would never go back is that they charged us 25 cents when we asked for some parmesan cheese for our pizza. $20 is not enough for a single serve pizza, they are going to charge extra quarter for a small cup of parmesan. Parking is also a problem, as there is very little available. Better places to dine in Memphis.

    We have been 4 times now and every time are surprised at how amazing it is! The atmosphere is also really great here and the service is wonderful! The only reason I haven't been more is because of the price, while worth every penny I can't always afford that many.

    After researching Memphis restaurants we decided to try Hog and Hominy based on a review on their hamburgers. It seems we should have done a little more research as they don't offer the burger for dinner ... So at the suggestion of our waitress we ordered oysters, meatballs, fries , pizza and peanut butter pie All were amazing. The oysters are small but the sauce is perfectly done, meatballs are firm with a touch of spice and the pizza was just the perfect size The pie was good with a touch of banana that prevents the PB from being overwhelming I suggest this place for a great dinner and fun atmosphere. Good for couples, families or friends. Maybe my next trip I'll go there for lunch..

    Great poutine, crab claws, wood fired oysters, red eye and Tandy man can pizzas for brunch, the only drawback is that the restaurant is so loud you can't hear each other talk, a major negative for brunch! I gave it a 3 since the food was so good, but probably won't go back due to how loud it is.

    When I opened the door & heard the Rolling Stones playing, I knew I was in the right place. High on my Ambiance List. Next on my List was a cold refreshing cocktail on a stifling 96 degree afternoon. The handcrafted Mai Tai ($12) did the trick. Barstools were full @ 5pm, good vibe. The Tandy Man Can Pizza ($10):: Bacon & tomato sugo, mozzarella, olive oil, calabrian chili. Everyone raves about the Pizza, & it was very good.

    I happened upon H&H based on TA reviews, and was not disappointed. The quatro formaggio pizza was more than enough food and the atmosphere was laid back. Great place!

    We love Hog and Hominy so much, we've been known to go there twice a day. Returning from a long trip out west, we came back through Memphis just so we could visit one more time. What a mistake. It was on Sunday, and the menu is shorter, some of our favorite things are different and worst of all, no meatballs. Those delicious meatballs, banished on Sunday. Biscuit gnocchi aren't gnocchi at all but a slab of biscuit dough like cornbread, Not the same. Not as good. And so noisy, it was all we could do to finish our puffballs. It was such a terrible experience we might not come back to what used to be our favorite restaurant in all of Memphis.

    We decided to eat here based on a mention in Bon Appetit magazine and we were not disappointed. Our waitress was extremely helpful in exposing the menu and everything we ordered was beyond fantastic. The poutine was easily the best we've ever had. My husband and I ordered 3 items and barely finished them. Portions were nicely sized. Super happy.

    We thought we were walking into a southern BBQ joint, but the cuisine at this artsy little bistro is Italian, and delicious. Four of us shared a delicious pizza and several small plates (gnocchi, collard greens, polenta with parmesan and asparagus, and three meatballs with sauce). The atmosphere is classy casual. The service was excellent. The food was delectable.

    A little eclectic. Small TAPAS. Unusually Pizza configurations. IT was good food but not what I would normally go to have. The name caught us. I was at a place somewhat like it just off Dupont Circle in DC. Pretty Pricey also

    Great location for travelers in German town area. Small, eclectic atmosphere but quite loud. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Good wine and beverage menu. Be sure to read the menu carefully and ask questions as the food is quite unique. Tapas style portions for sharing and experimenting on a varied menu. We had trout toast, a dish of lamb and poached eggs, followed by an heirloom tomato based pizza. We chose roses as our wine. The flavors and aromas of the dishes were were very good. However the pizza had an unbaked center crust. Not what we were expecting.

    Ordered the grilled oysters, the description on the menus described how they are cooked but forgets to mention that there is only 4... imagine my surprise when I thought we were getting a half dozen.... and they weren't that good, we actually sent the plate back with one left uneaten. Then we ordered a pizza and honestly Totinos is better and bigger.. and it doesn't cost you $16.00... I will say the service was OK, but that is a stretch... Long story short, we had 4 grilled oysters that were not worth eating a second one. and a pizza that does not measure up to one you can get from the freezer section of Kroger for 1.25, and it cost over 40.00 with two ice teas.. I find it hard to believe this place is on the top 10 restaurants in Memphis.. Never again....

    We shared 5 of the contorni, all inventive, tasty, and memorable! (Pizzas were being eaten all around us, so they must be good, too. Almost asked one of our dining neighbors to try a slice of their pizza...but my family stopped me.) Splurged for three deserts. The peanut butter pie is rightfully famous! Good wines and beers. Great service! Perfect dinner!

    My wife and I had heard that Hog and Hominy had just been voted as having the "Country's Best Burger", and we simply wanted to confirm they were correct. Well - they were. Now, we have been to Hog and Hominy before and had the Quattro Formaggio Pizza and Gnocchetti - which were excellent, by the way. Well, we both were pleased recently when we experienced the John T. Burger. It was seasoned perfectly - the meat, the carmelized onions, the pickled lettuce - each adding its flavor and all combining for a burger that leaves you wanting to eat a second. Although I was tempted, I knew that I would be full and did not want to leave stuffed. You may not have heard, but we were told that this burger actually won "Best Burger in the Country". Also, the restaurant has won numerous awards since they opened. Yes, the food was indeed fabulous and well worth going. You do need to know, however, that parking is extremely limited so a small walk may be needed. The reward, however, will far and away make up for the effort you put forth to get there. Come enjoy some awesome food! You'll be glad you came. We were.

    Had been told by many friends how great this place is BUT unless you like fancy pizzas and unusual Italian dishes ........ You probably won't like it here. I tried a gonocci dish with morel mushrooms (if you can find them). Sauce was good as was the rest except I wanted something more.

    We read this was rated one of the best hamburgers anywhere. However it's definitely an acquired taste. Its topped with a shredded lettuce soaked in pickle juice. I personally found it to be a strange taste and salty. It also has melted cheddar and they coat it in cheese. A bit too much cheese for my liking...how can one say that... well because it overtakes the burger. This hamburger isn't the best in my opinion but can see it would appeal to those wanting a different type burger. The menu is pretty cool and will definitely return to try something else
