We like to think that in Texas we do bbq better than anyone else. Well we might be wrong. The Mean Pig BBQ in Arkansas is a bbq paradise. I was tempted to try the Shut Up Juice challenge until I tasted the sauce. That changed my mind pretty quickly. The chopped beef sandwich was amazing. We sampled the sliced... More

Food was inexpensive and tasty. My husband and I split one plate of food and were both full. The sweet sauce was good especially for someone, like me, who can't handle spicy food.

Really great pulled pork, smoked on site, and comes with your choice of sauces - sweet, spicy, and very hot. Do not try the 911 sauce. I have seen grown men cry in pain after a few bites. My favorite is pork with sweet sauce, sloppy (extra sauce), and slaw (cole slaw on the sandwich). Lunchtimes are kind of hectic... More

I wasn't impressed.....the baked beans were so spicy I couldn't get passed the 3 bite, the cole slaw was very dry and so was the meat. I was pretty disappointed after hearing good things about this place.

It's not the best BBQ joint in the area but it's good. They know what they're doing. The potato salad is on point.

Great food, service and atmosphere. Family owned and operated. They started out in a little shack years ago and expanded due to popularity!

We usually get take out from Mean Pig and get the family meal because it's a great deal. You get a very large portion of pulled pork, potato salad, cole slaw, baked beans and 4 large buns. My husband and I can make this last for several meals. We have also had their ribs and they are awesome!!
