Hoggs n' Chicks - Terrible name, GREAT food!

Hoggs n' Chicks is a little hole in the wall near Sienna Plantation in the Missouri City/Sugar Land area. They call it a Fine Food Shack and indeed it is!

I must say that we haven't darkened the door of this place since it opened primarily due to the name. It is rather a put off for me for some reason. I kept thinking to myself, with a name like that how serious can they be about their food? Glad to say I was wrong. Also found out that the place is associated with Frederic Perrier/Aura.

Hubby and I stopped by for a quick bite last night. With some recommendations from the staff we ordered some "small bites" and mains. I tend to think of sliders as a bit passe, but thought we'd give these a go as we were told they were a favorite. They have 4 different kinds and they are available to order individually so we made our own plate of three. We had the Jalapeno Glazed Chicken Slider, the Spicy Saigon Pork Slider, and the Pulled Pork Slider. OMG - heaven! We liked the Saigon Pork best (almost fighting over the last bite!) and the Jalapeno Chicken was a close runner up. The Pulled Pork wasn't bad either, but it paled in comparison.

For mains we had the Fried Shrimp Basket and the Pigs Delight Sandwich. The shrimp were fine - good for a fried shrimp fix, but not the best ever. The Pigs Delight was, well, delightful. It is a sandwich with a fried pork loin and hatch chili sauce, topped with breakfast (ham, egg, and bacon). Yum! It was a huge portion thought - better if we had just shared that and skipped the shrimp.

So, if I start to eat here often, I'll have to try the salad side of the menu since a lot of the rest of the food is the good artery clogging kind. We will definately be back though - even if it is only to try more of the "bad" stuff!
