Van Nuys

It's a good sign when you step outside of your car in the parking lot of Dr. Hogly Wogly's Tyler Texas BBQ and are immediately hit by an olfactory wall of braised meat. Round the corner past the astroturf patio and step inside this Van Nuys treasure, where wood-paneled walls and fast-talking waitresses who call you 'hun' transport you to the middle of America. As its name suggests, Dr. Hogly Wogly's is all about Texas BBQ, and brisket is the star. You can order items á la carte or go big with the two- and three-meat combos, but make sure you go for the brisket. The fall-apart beef comes with a sweet or hot sauce (ask for both); the combos also allow for two side dishes. Fan favorites include the baked beans (which are out of this world) and the coleslaw. How, you ask, is it possible to eat everything on your plate? Cram it all into a buttered roll—the brisket, the beans, the coleslaw, the sauce—and take a bite. It's just what the doctor ordered.

Doctor Hogly Wogly's will never get my business again. I talked to someone on the phone there and was coming to make a large order for a party. I called around 9:00 and talked to a woman working there and I asked very clearly, are you open until 10pm. THEY ARE NOT! I was told that because it was slow, they would be closing at 9:30 tonight. I said I will be right there. She said and I quote because I don't talk like this, "COME ON DOWN!". To which I chuckled and got in my care. When I arrived at 9:20 I was told that the place was closed. I was even told that the owner was the one that called and told them to close. To me, that means that the owners have no regard for customer service. I will never grace them with my presence or use them for catering. Terrible experience and horrible staff communication. Not a fan of this place. Make sure you call, THEY ARE NOT OPEN UNTIL 10PM ALMOST EVER!
