I ordered the 2 meat special. I had the chopped pork and sausage. My sides were potato salad and baked beans. The pork was dry with average flavor. The sausage was good. The potato salad was nothing special. The baked beans were excellent. The hot sauce was pretty hot but really good. The roll was... read more

Very good food. Just one counter to order, then you have to step to the side and receive your meal and pick it up, then you get your drink and go thing. So I you are or were in the service it is right up your ally.

Not very good hours for working people. Close way too early and weekend hours are too short. Restuarant lacks in comfort of any kind

Best barbecue around! Buddy and the gang do it like nobody else! They started out in a trailer and thanks to their top-notch food and hospitality they have a nice place to eat!

I've been eating at the Mean Pig since back in the day when it started in a trailer. While I think the food was actually better back then, it still remains my favorite place to get a BBQ pork sandwich and baked beans. If you want it hot ask them about their Shut Up Juice.

Best BBQ in the Little Rock area . I love the BBQ pork sandwich with sweet sauce and cole slaw. They also have mild and hotter sauces. My husband LOVES the ribs. Everyone is always friendly and the restaurant is very clean. Oh for the holidays they have very tasty smoked hams and turkey. Order those in advance. Yummy yummy

This restaurant has the best tasting barbeque that I have tasted in Arkansas. They have a special barbeque sauce that is sweet and tangy that they give you to put on your barbeque sandwich. It taste so good!!! I'm getting hungry just thinking about one.

Great experience! The pork and beef bbq sandwiches were delicious. Enjoyed with sides of cole slaw and potatoe salad. Very pleasant atmosphere and very clean. Our bbq experience was especially memorable thanks to owner Buddy and his family. We even got to see the smoker were the magic happens!

I'm in love with this BBQ joint! Hands down the best in central Arkansas. Not only is the owner friendly but the entire staff is great!!! I'm not usually a fan of pulled pork but one taste of this and I was sold!!
