The Short Order
Barbecue lovers of all stripes will probably get along just fine at Whole Hog Café, the Santa Fe branch of a restaurant group based in Arkansas. It puts both pulled pork and pork loin on its menu along with chicken, sausage, ribs (pork, not beef), and brisket. You can order a sandwich stuffed with one meat or a platter containing all six, and every table has been outfitted with bottles of half a dozen different sauces. Apart from a few mostly generic sides, Whole Hog doesn’t have a lot of options for vegetarians, but it does have sweet tea and banana pudding. Employees are remarkably friendly and polite, and service is lightning fast. Recommended: pulled pork, pork ribs, brisket, barbecue nachos, and cucumber salad.
