Very HOT and quite tasty!!!!!!

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.

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!!

A classic example of doing one thing really well. The Mean Pig is without a doubt the consistently best barbecue in Arkansas, There may be a few small barbecue joints in out of the way places that can match the Mean Pig but we haven't found any place that can beat it. The Mean Pig always draws a crowd at... More

This place has the best BBQ around. The food is excellent, the staff is friendly, and the restaurant is clean. This place is definitely somewhere you will want to eat at all the time.

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 dry and hard. Maybe I... More

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.

Unless you like very small portions st a large portion price, this is not your place to go. the food is ok, but definitely not worth the money. Go elsewhere for bbq.

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
