The Greenbrier Valley is probably best known for its breathtaking mountains and landscapes, but its dining scene is no slacker either. You can discover French, Italian, Japanese, and Latin fares, espresso, locally crafted brews and meads, distilled spirits, and fresh baked goods almost daily. The valley also now has two food trucks including hot dogs with all the toppings at Wild Child Wieners in Ronceverte and fair foods at Castle Kitchen on Midland Trail (Rt 60) in Lewisburg. And what started out as a single concession barbeque trailer many years ago, Hog Wild BBQ has evolved into 6 concession trailers and 11 smokers that operate, seasonally, up and down the East Coast. And due to strong local demand, they decided to set up a brick-and-mortar in Fairlea to deliver southern barbeque 7 days a week.

Hog Wild BBQ is dedicated to Southern barbeque and has kept a steady reputation since 2005…

“We are in town visiting some friends and decided to try your restaurant. We were not disappointed. That is some really great BBQ. We will have to stop in one more time before we head home. absolutely delicious. And the staff was polite and helpful as well, highly recommend them!” – Kai Feland

You’ll find their meats exceptionally southern with a nice offering of smoked dishes including pork, brisket, turkey legs, chicken, and ribs. One of the secrets is in the smoker, which owner, Billy Level, has custom built.

Opening its restaurant doors on September 23rd, 2020, Hog Wild BBQ is dedicated to Southern barbeque and has kept a steady reputation since 2005. Billy is a self-described barbeque aficionado. In ‘05, Billy and his wife, Maryann, began a new adventure when they volunteered to cater Billy’s high school reunion. He and Maryann were dairy farmers near Union at the time. They regularly smoked meats at home using a smoker that Billy custom-built and they were happy to share their barbeque skills with Billy’s GEHS graduating class. The catering job went over well and they soon invested themselves into barbeque full-time which has turned into 40 events yearly, including the WV State Fair, and various catering jobs.

In true Texan style, you place your order at the counter and you are served at your table…

Hog Wild offers both indoor and outdoor seating. In true Texan style, you place your order at the counter and you are served at your table, which are custom built with white oak barrels that are locally produced here in Greenbrier County. The atmosphere perfectly blends modern and rustic vibes with a southern smoked bbq menu to match. BONUS: You can also order in the drive-thru!

The menu is not overly complex and features smoked pork, brisket, or chicken as sandwiches or dinners. Ribs are prepared from ¼ rack to full rack. All dinners include two sides with your choice of slaw, baked beans, green beans, or fries. There’s also the Butt Fries which are smothered in pulled pork, nacho cheese, scallions, and sour cream. Bull Fries are topped with brisket and all the fixins as well. Other popular options are soft tacos, redneck nachos, baked potato (loaded if preferred), and mac n cheese. Two types of dessert are also available which are the brownie and a scoop of ice cream.

BONUS #2: Everything on the menu is available in bulk! All meats may be ordered by the pound and all sides are prepared in pints, making for effortless dinner nights this summer.

“Awesome food. We were here about a month ago. We are hard critics and have worked in bbq industry. This place is awesome to us!!! No complaints at all!!” – Kaitlin Christian

You can never go wrong with good southern barbeque.

Every year, from March 1st until November 20th, Billy and his crew travel around the East Coast to cater a variety of events and festivals including three major state fairs, races in Bristol, and bike rallies in Myrtle Beach and Daytona. They also cater several events locally. In 2011, Hog Wild was invited to cater an event at a 10 Year Commemoration Ceremony at Ground Zero located at 209 Broadway in Manhattan. The team served 7,500 meals to local folks coming out to remember those who had lost their lives in 9/11.

You can never go wrong with good southern barbeque. Check out Hog Wild the next time you are craving a smoked flavor that fits the bill. They are located at 116 Quarry Village Road, near Greenbrier Motors. Summer hours are Mon-Wed: 11-8p, Thur-Sat: 11-9p, and Sunday: 11-7p.
