Welcome to Hog Wild - Award Winning BBQ!

Established in 2006, Hog Wild became the place to go for great ribs, beef brisket and pork. Also known for windy city favorites: Chicago dogs, Italian beef and sausage.

In 2013 owners Scott and Donna Davis took over and have continued the great BBQ and authentic Chicago food.

Having owned and operated the historic Rainbows End steakhouse and saloon in Sedona, Arizona from 1990 to 2003, made Hog Wild a perfect fit for serving great BBQ with warm hospitality.

Hog Wild is at the entrance to Old Town Cottonwood. Our meat is slow-cooked in our 100% wood-fired outdoor smoker over local pecan wood. So come on by and eat in or pig out.

We have a dog-friendly patio too!

“Good food good service”

Stopped for quick lunch, the pulled pork sandwich was really good as was the coleslaw and sweet potato fries. The service was quick and the staff were friendly, nice clean little restaurant.

“☆☆You'll Pig Out☆☆☆☆☆”

We stopped here after our afternoon train ride. We ordered the pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw and potato salad. We saw the smoker outside on our way into the restaurant. It's a "hole in the wall" but don't shy away! Our was very delicious and very reasonably priced with fast service.

“Good Stuff”
Made it 5 minutes before closing and glad that I did. We were getting food to go so no problem, ordered their mixed combo, 1 rack of ribs which were perfect fall off the bone along with brisket, good smokey flavor and a pulled pork. Enough food to feed 2 with extra left over for a sandwich the next day. If we are back in the area we will stop again.

“Family owned best BBQ in Cottonwood”

This charming little place at the corner of Main Street and 7th is just before you head into Old Town Cottonwood. Ample parking, nice patio and great BBQ. But if Chicken and Hot Dogs are your think they have that too. Quaint with an Arizona feel and reasonably priced.

We a platter for two, half rack ribs, 3/4 pounds of smoked brisket and pork, fries, two sides and Texas Toast a to go,box was needed to carry the leftovers to the condo. A great stop for a good Que.

“Magnificent Barbeque”

Although it had been a number of years, I’d eaten here a couple of times before and remembered it fondly. While camping for a week at Dead Horse Ranch, I had occasion to try Hog Wild twice more. These visits only enhanced its reputation. On 11-2-15, following a morning of boating at the park, I went in for a late lunch of cheeseburger and baked beans. The hamburger was a hefty half-pounder and was just fine, but it was the baked beans that amazed me. They are exquisite!

Of course I had to give their barbeque a proper try, so two days later, at the tail end of a bitterly cold, rainy day, I swooped in for a hot meal. I ordered to go the Pulled Pork Plate: pulled pork with sauce on the side, French fries and Texas toast, and I chose the beans again. That was a great feast. I must go back and try the ribs everybody talks about.

Interesting datum: Hog Wild’s meat smoker is located in the rear parking lot, surely a marketing ploy, for its wonderful aroma is powerfully enticing.

“BBQ Cottonwood Style”

"Grab yourself a pulled pork sandwich and before biting into that, smother that meat with Hog Wild's cole slaw. Bite & don't stop! Complete that meal with some tasty baked beans, potato salad & a home made brownie to top off that meal. Loosen your belt and waddle back to your car! That's what we do! Good Stuff!"

“Super Monday night rib special - Have been coming here for years!!”

"Absolutely fantastic ribs and wonderful woman at the counter. Ribs are always tender juicy and plenty of meat. Smoked all day to perfection. This place is always the Sedona/Verde Valley #1 Award Winner for best ribs - for like the last 8 years. That means a lot!! Service is fast too. So get in here and stop wasting a bunch of time at other places."

“BBQ heaven”

Stoped here on a whim and so glad we did. Smoker in the car park and the smell is amazing. Great funky décor inside this small restaurant. Lovely owners / wait staff. The meat is amazing.
