This is why I shouldn’t pick a place when I’m driving around hungry.  I had already been to the Whole Hog Cafe in Cherry Hill and didn’t like it.  Today, I ended up driving around to run some errands so I thought I’d grab a sandwich.  I had remembered passing the place before, wanting to try and I didn’t realize it was part of a chain.

Well, I wish I had.  Although I will say, the cafeteria-style ordering (which I’m not a real fan of) worked for this place because it was small.  The service was good, but the pulled pork sandwich was a little dry.  No getting around it.  And later, I was burping it up for quite a while.  The counter girl and cook tried, but I’m done.  Although I will say I liked the cornbread and that’s a big part of it for me, ten bucks for a sandwich and cornbread is kind of steep not to be wowwed by the meat.

I give the Whole Hog Cafe 5 out of 10 keggers.  I can’t go back.  Sorry.
