Please do not support this business. Food is horrible and service is awful. Many better options elsewhere!

The real deal. The food here is incredible. All made in house and daily. They have a sign that says "when we're out, we're out!". I like hot wings, but I never considered one place over another. Hot wings are hot wings. Most places, it's just the sauce and that is all you taste. Their wings are the exception to the rule. They are so incredible, I don't waste my money getting them anywhere else. You actually taste the smoked chicken along with the sauce. Smoky goodness!

The staff here is actually pleasant too, which is a rarity in Johnstown.




Excellent at catering for events. The bbq pork will melt in your mouth! Great service and good deals are a couple of reasons why it is the best place to eat at in Johnstown!

Authentic smokehouse with the best pulled pork and brisket we have ever had in Ohio! I actually like Hoggy's ribs a little better, but that's because of my Kansas roots preferring a more vinegar based sauce, but the ribs themselves are delicious. Sides are also top notch, and I didn't try the wings, maybe next time. Excellent find Cris! We will be returning again and again!

The best BBQ in central Ohio...possibly the whole state!

I've hit this hole-in-the-wall joint about 5 times now, and there is no question about...BBQ done right! Slow roasted pulled pork, over-night smoked brisket, and 4 hour smoked ribs...all moist and tender! This place has the best brisket I've ever had, and that's saying something coming from a guy who has his own smoker!

This place has a line from the time its open, until the chow runs out. That's shortcuts here...when they run out of something, that's it for the day.

Whether take out, or dine in, the food is served the same get you meat in a separate container (in .5 lb. increments), buns in a bag, and sides in their own plastic containers.

This place main focus is take out and catering, and the menu is set up that way. You order your meats and sides in pounds, and its all bagged up for you.

They do have a very cramped and small dine-in area...Id say about 12 seats, so going dine-in might be a challenge. You should have another plan just in case...there is a real nice park right down the street.

This place is the BBQ bomb...a true to the bone BBQ joint!! I only wish it was located closer to my house. :(

Edit: Oh, I almost forgot...check out the smoked chicken wings too. Come in many flavors including the standard buffalo...again, the best.

Simply the Best!

Rt 62 is the most amazing BBQ experience in Ohio! You will be hard pressed to find anything close to RT 62's Turkey, Ribs, pulled pork and chicken and Brisket!

Excellent Catering!!!

I have used 62 for 3 different catered events over the last year. My guests LOVE the food, the portions are plenty big, and 62 BBQ makes it really convenient. It is worth the drive to Johnstown from Columbus.

Route 62 CRUSHES Hoggy's

Want some GREAT bbq, go to Johnstown, Ohio. Give them a call and take it home. They are the best in the Columbus Area. It is very good if you like good long smoked pork, ribs, turkey. They have a great menu and a great staff. They cater for all occasions and will deliver for a VERY reasonable price. The offer Thanksgiving dinner and will be there to service you with a smile.

Yummy BBQ..Dineing out that taste like home...

This place has great food and service for an amazing price. My company has used them several times for catering and the price is just to good to be true. They give you more than enough food and even better service. I have also enjoyed there food with my family and nothing is ever disapointing. The food is so wonderful and there is always a ton of it. It is the backyard down home food but with no mess and wait like you have at home...It is one place that never lets me down.

Go try there food, or even order some food for a party, meeting, or evening in. They deliver for the big meetings we host for our office....and it is easy set up!

Best Barbecue Food I have ever had!

This restaurant I highly recommend either for someone to dine alone or with family. They have the best barbecued chicken wings I have ever tasted and the macaroni and cheese is to die for!!! It is a smaller place but very clean and very friendly workers--makes you feel like you are at home. My kids enjoyed it as well! I would recommend the pulled chicken for the little ones for mine loved it! Go and enjoy some home cooked real barbecue--because we did!!!!

call ahead for ribs.

Ribs are really popular (and delicious) and so you ought to call ahead and reserve them if you really want them. The corn is awesome as are the cheesy potatoes and also the greens. Bring your appetite as you will get a lot of food (probably enough to take home). Really good prices.
