East Coast Hub Saloon & Hoghorn BBQ

Review: East Coast Hub Saloon & Hoghorn BBQ

Every Wednesday afternoon I take some time to review a product, place or experience in hopes I'll inspire someone to try something new!

So it was Monday afternoon, I was minding my own business when I get a frantic text from my boyfriend stating "We're going out for dinner... My treat. Tell me when you can go out" 

East Coast Hub Saloon

Whelp I never say no to a free food so Tuesday night we headed out for dinner! He informed we were going to the "Hub too" in Dartmouth which I always remembered it t be a dirty bar that I would never want to go near.. But apparently recently it has changed owners! I had noted the beautiful painted mural in the past but my thought process really ended there for the poor old bar.

We arrived a few minutes before 6PM, the dining room area is petite but functional, one waitress can manage the whole place herself. We chose a seat in the top corner comfortably on the slightly warn booth seats (they were a tad ripped up- they could probably use some reupholstering.) Not much seemed to be updated in the dining area, but from what we heard the kitchen was redone completely to cater to their smoky BBQ menu. 

I'll start off by warning there is definitely some growing pains with the servers... The waitress was pretty quick to arrive at our table. We ordered our drinks, Mike got a Pepsi and a water and I ordered the same... I only got my water womp womp.

After that we took a look at the Menu, it's a one pager all meat and very select options (always a good sign that the food is going to be amazing). I ordered the pulled pork and Mike got the brisket. Mike got fries for a side and I got beans... Which sadly I never received.... I also ordered deep fried pickles... which they were out of... BUT I will say that the meat was absolutely delicious! Lots of flavor and the portions are great. The fries were amazing as well, they were soft but fully cooked and had an incredible amount of flavor.

To summarize; great food, not so great service... However every new place deserves some growing pain time and the server was incredibly friendly. We'll be back, and I have no doubt my opinion on this place will grow. (I hope..)

Prices are reasonable for the delicious food (and I was happy to see I wasn't charged for the things I ordered and never received. Also.... LOOK at that wine price!
