About Hogbody’s Bar & Grill

Hogbody’s Bar & Grill is a staple in North Fort Myers offering up the BEST chicken wings you will ever find in Southwest Florida.

Their wing sauce selection is absolutely ridiculous (in a good way), but it’s not just chicken wings; they also have burgers, ribs, appetizers, wraps, and other entrees.

Hogbody’s is located on Bayshore Road, just over the bridge on I-75. It’s a bit of a drive for us coming from South Fort Myers, but it’s so worth it.

You’ll step into Hogbody’s and know that you’re in a place where only the locals go. Seeing the interactions between the staff and the customers will tell you that. Many of the people who go there are regulars, we suspect. When we go there, they probably think we’re tourists!

The inside is decorated exactly how you’d expect a local bar/grill to look and the atmosphere is very laid back – and it’s quite comforting. You’ll see the neon signs for the different beers they carry (Bud Light, Yuengling, etc.), and the inside is a bit larger than you’d expect. One side is the bar with tables and booths, and the other side is strictly booths for dining.

Hogbody’s Food

Now, onto the food! We’ve ordered a ton of different food over the years, but here’s a rundown of what we ordered recently for Kristen’s birthday dinner.

Hogbody's cheese fries
  • Sour cream chicken wings (extra crispy!) – these are the only wings you ever need to know about. Sour cream might seem odd for a wing sauce, but trust us on this. It’s so delicious. The. Best. Wings. Ever.

  • Cheese fries & ranch (with melted shredded cheese) – we don’t eat cheese fries that often, but when we do, these are it. They’re cooked to perfection and literally melt in your mouth.

  • Fried chicken wrap with medium buffalo sauce – now, we love Hogbody’s chicken wings. But we tried the wrap once and that’s also a new favorite. It’s hard to find a wrap that is well-put together and doesn’t fall apart – and this one always hits the spot. Perfect every time.

All in all, Hogbody’s has the best chicken wings in the area. Period. They have other good food, too, but seriously. Go for the wings.
