Real Southern BBQ!

Hard to decide what to get but the combo offers three mains. Baked beans quite sweet and good coleslaw. Pulled pork is my favorite. Choice of sauces.

Let's start by acknowledging that selecting a BBQ favorite in Northwest Arkansas can be a sensitive as talking about religion or politics. However, having tried all of the local spots (and many are very good), I still cast my favorite vote for the Whole Hog Cafe. You can't go wrong here. My most recent visit was for lunch with my...

Whole Hog Cafe is the best BBQ ever. You can't miss this if you are in Rogers, AR or the Rogers area! The ribs are melt-in-your-mouth good!

On our motorcycle trip with the family decided to try this over Smokin' Joes since it was within walking distance and had good reviews. Very disappointed it in. Pricing was not what was listed online, was actually more. Husband got the Rib platter was expecting st . Louis style as per menu said, he ended up with baby back ribs... More

Award winning BBQ sometimes, it seems they rest on their laurels more often than not. Have eaten here numerous times and the last one was so mediocre to outright bad just won't bother to go back. Used to bring out of town guests but they did not are for it either. Best thing they have going for them is the... More

If your looking for good BBq then this is the place. Great smoke flavor and variety. I recommend the pull pork. Good variety of sauces and excellent sides as well.

Second time I've been here. First was with a group and it was very good. Was in town solo so stopped for lunch. Got a half slab of ribs and they were some of the best I've ever had. Very meaty and tasty. The fact they have 6 different barbecue sauces on the table lets you try different ones. They... More

We used to be big fans of Whole Hog, but it has gradually declined over the years. The last time we stopped in, the pork was mealy and bland, the beans were straight out of a can, the potato salad tasted of nothing but sour cream, and the roll was still refrigerator cold. Whole Hog, what happened?! I don't think... More

Tasty smoky ribs with good sides of potato salad and baked beans. Choose your own sauce. Extra spicy is not really spicy.

Excellent BBQ. I'm not a fan of brisket, bet their's is fantastic. And the Potato Salad is excellent. Not fancy....just great BBQ. As good as I found in Arkansas.
