Get ready to taste the savory goodness of the true wild country of Colorado when you visit Hogback BBQ and Grill. At our barbecue restaurant in Littleton, CO, we combine the tangy taste of our house barbecue sauce with rich, local meats which result in a distinct, delicious flavor for all of our dishes. We strive to produce the highest standard of quality and freshness with each offering. 

Our regionally-sourced meats are prepared with our specialty house rub and slow-smoked over hickory wood for 14 to 16 hours for a sensational melt-in-your-mouth experience. These meats can be enjoyed in one of our plate entrees, sandwiches, or smoked meat platters.  

You can choose from a wide selection of beers and Colorado wines to be paired with your meal. Drop in during Happy Hour (Monday through Friday 2-6 PM) and catch your favorite game on one of many TVs or relax on the outside patio and enjoy the great Colorado outdoors.

Call (303) 948-2711 today and ask about our catering options.

PUBLISHER'S NOTE: We were thrilled to have Hogback BBQ cater our son's graduation party. The food was beyond delicious, and the quantities were generous. The amazing smell hit our guests before they even entered the room, and they could barely stay long enough to say hi before racing over to the tasty treats that awaited them. Needless to say, Hogback was a HUGE HIT, and I would highly recommend them to everyone who wants to enjoy a sensational culinary experience!
