Good BBQ....Yum Yum

I have eaten here numerous times and it is consistently very good. I usually get a pork BBQ sandwich. It is always great. The owners are friendly and welcoming. Service is very quick. They have several sauces to choose from.. Ranging from mild to very hot. It's so hot most people can't eat... read more

Wow.. what a lunch! Me and my cousin were traveling through Arkansas, and felt like having BBQ. We googled it and found this restaurant highly recommended.. so we decided to go there. Great decision! The Beef Brisket was sooo tender and delicious.. melting in our mouth! The Cole Slaw was the best I've had ever.. period. Everything we had was... More

The service is terrific and the food is excellent from the ribs to the pork. They smoke their meat themselves.

Love their bar-b-que. I either have their pork sandwich or their Frito pie. Always amp,e amounts of meat. I have tried their ribs before and they are quite delicious. Haven't been brave enough to try the Shut Up sauce. The other sauces are great.

I'm a little bias; my niece is married to the owner's son. I sometimes get special treatment; but never a special price.

They had a nice selection with both beef and pork. The sandwiches were good sized. There was quite a selection of sauces. I got a mix of sweet and mild and liked it. The prices were reasonable. Tasty.

We have lived in Arkansas 2 different times. Out of all the bbq places this was by far the best. Friendly staff and fast service. Can't wait to go back for a visit! We loved it so much we are ordering a case of their sauce!

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
