I just saw a story on tv about this place. Its on Guess Road...anyone been there? How does it compare to Allen & Son?

    Hog Heaven's 'cue ain't half bad, but ain't nobody gonna mistake it for Allen & Son's.

    That said, I'll take HH over Bullocks', Dillard's, or Q-Shack's (although I'll take Q-Shack's brisket over HH's 'cue). Sides, puppies, and desserts are pretty average, though.

      I've been there twice. The que is okay, not as smokey and flavorful as Allen & Son. I suspect because they use gas, not wood. I highly recommend their fried chicken, however.
