Contented Carnivore at Sloppy Hoggs Roed Hus

Roed Hus Sliders
Having heard great things from @thepolishviking and having a Groupon in hand to Sloppy Hoggs Roed Hus, we took the chance to visit after a long morning spent checking out the Star Wars Identities Exhibit at the Telus World of Science.

Located near the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) in a small strip mall, one enters a small, but warm and inviting space decorated with stone, and consisting of a mix of cozy booths, as well as more flexible seating of tables and chairs.

Roed Hus Road Kill
We started with the Roed Hus Sliders, which included a sampling of pulled pork, feeb brisket and smoked chicken. The chicken was juicy and succulent, and had a bit of kick to it. Meanwhile, the pulled pork was a delectably messy affair as the sweet BBQ sauce enrobing the pork dripped off with every bite. The humans declared the feeb brisket a delight, super tender thanks to all the fat, perfectly complimented by mustard.

We followed up with an order of the Roed Hus Road Kill that consisted of a ridiculous amount of meat on top of a house baked waffle bun, mustard BBQ sauce, feeb brisket, bacon, smoked cheddar, lettuce, tomato, pickles, smoked pork butt, hogg sauce, onion rings, waffle sauce, smoked chicken and berry BBQ sauce, not to mention a sizable helping of BBQ pit beans, cornbread and fries! The waffle bun tasted just as it sounds, slightly sweet like a waffle, elevating the bun from merely a vessel for the mounds of meat to an integral part of the whole dish. The smoked chicken had a sweetness to it with the smoky taste clearly discernable, while the pork was crispy on the exterior but the meat within melted in your mouth. Obviously the concoction was too large to eat as was, and was deconstructed in order to devour - short of possessing the ability to unhinge ones jaw – which with a dish so tasty would actually be desirable. The humans also enjoyed a plate of meaty ribs, and the accoutrements held their own, with perfectly balanced sweet and spicy beans, as well as a cornbread that I imagine any Southerner would be proud to be seen eating.

Mississippi Mud Pie
We admitted defeat on both plates and happily took home some sizable leftovers to enjoy later. Luckily we saw the Mississippi Mud Pie on the menu and saved some room for dessert. The pie was a healthy size, definitely meant for sharting, and was not overly sweet. The chocolate and vanilla ice cream combined with chocolate ganache and caramel made a moolicious combination, while the mounds of whip cream cut what sweetness there was. The chocolate brownie added a different dimension, and contributed a welcome crunchiness to the rich and creamy chocolate, ice and whip cream that coexisted together.

The meal was incredibly satisfying - taste, appetite and value wise. Service was fast and attentive, and we wound up with leftovers for several meals. I would highly recommend you give Sloppy Hoggs Roed Hus a visit, particularly if you are a carnivore with a healthy appetite. I look forward to my next visit and will go prepared next time wearing stretchy pants, just like Joey's turkey pants in Friends.

  1. Damn! I need to go there - it all sounds amazing!

  2. I been to this restaurant twice in person and it became my new favourite place to eat. I was going to order Boston pizza but figured I would try this place for delivery instead. The quality inside was amazing what I got delivered to me was bullshit. The beef brisket was absolutely all fat there was about 2 % meat in the whole dish. The ribs were over cooked and dry. Both not eatable. The corn bread was Old and dried out. Last but not least the fucking dessert was ten dollars and very tiny. The beans were great so was the potatoes but I can't help to think I paid $85 for a can of beans and two potatoes. All in all very expensive dissatisfying meal that has pissed me off a large amount.

    1. It's unfortunate that you had a poor experience. I hope you let them know that your meal was not to your satisfaction. Although considering most of their entrees are $20 or less, I wouldn't consider that in the least expensive, particularly given the portion sizes. Their platters are quite pricy at $60, but otherwise, their menu prices are reasonable. But I guess it depends how much you're used to paying for a meal that will determine what you view as expensive or not.
