Nestled deep within the San Fernando Valley right off the 405 in Van Nuys, Dr. Hogly Wogly's Tyler Texas BBQ serves up the perfect belly-busting combos to celebrate the unofficial end of summer. A much-loved institution since 1969, restaurant founder Johnny Greene was said to have been such a large man that his wife coined the joint's endearing name when she told him "you're not a Piggly Wiggly but a Hogly Wogly." With cooks and waitstaff who have been with the business for decades, it's evident that the restaurant pours its heart - in addition to a daily 900 pounds of beef, pork, and chicken - into its food. The meats are hand rubbed with spices, cured overnight, soaked in an ultra-secret marinade, and then slow-smoked to perfection in a brick oven over mesquite and hickory woods. Order any of the meats á la carte or in two or three-meat combos (I lean towards the latter choice, as you get to sample more of the melt-in-your-mouth barbeque), slather them with both the sweet and spicy barbeque sauces, load up on delicious sides, and enjoy the waitresses' quick-handed doggie-bagging techniques when you take home a pile of meat you can't possibly finish -- though there's always room for at least a bite of the restaurant's best-selling sweet potato pie!
