This is definitely one of those days, where you have a million things to do but you’re going to write about something anyway. Because when you have something great to share, you should share it :) So the story goes, we were studying for our CMNS 473 final at Waves in Steveston. And from past experience the chances of us heading towards the direction of Hog Shack after are always EXTREMELY high. You’ll see why we enjoy this barbecue cook house so much when you scroll down!
Their menu, which on most days we never usually get past the first page. We also approve of the Hog Shack Sweet Rub if you are feeling like wings!
The nachos with pulled pork is our go-to appy from Hogshack. It’s guaranteed to be piled high with all the good stuff – three types of cheese, tomatoes, onions, olives, and jalapeño peppers. While best shared with a handful of good friends, Pat & Kat are tanks so we had no problem (almost) finishing this.
And together with sour cream and their in-house fresh salsa, who could go wrong?
At the end of our feast Owner/Chef John made fun at us and said “You guys aren’t going to leave five nachos are you? There are starving kids you know.” Pat: “It feels like you’re my parents right now.” Felt horrible after, but appreciated the humour and laughed about it anyway.
Good service, their delicious pulled pork (seriously it tastes good on just about anything), and proximity to the prime studying areas are reasons we come back again and again. If you’re heading over and decide to try the nachos, let us know what you think as its our favourite plate from Hog Shack!
P.S. we were too excited when we realized their kitchen was playing One Direction’s CD.
