Frederick, Maryland

Black Hog BBQ
Sometimes as we barrel down the freeways, we pass through a town that beckons. On a trip from Baltimore to Pittsburgh, we decided to stop for a late lunch in Frederick, Maryland. Checking online, we found many favorable reviews for the Black Hog BBQ (

It only took a taste for the three of us to agree with the reviewers. The food is excellent and the restaurant offers various BBQ styles.  I had the Carolina smoked pork sandwich. I admit I doused it in Kansas City sauce but the meat was incredibly lean and tender. The restaurant offers a variety of styles to satisfy every taste.

After stuffing our faces, we drove through the historic downtown. The Civil War era buildings present a picture of a long-ago time.

We didn’t have time to stop but it made us want to return. If you’re traveling that route, check it out.  Its proximity to Gettysburg and Baltimore makes it an ideal place to visit. If the insides of the shops are as picturesque as the outside, you’ll be glad you did.

According to the website, “museums meet martini bars…scenic landscapes.” The website offers enough temptation to explore Frederick on a return trip.
