Ordered the ribs. They were caked in molasses, barbequed, they were dry and burnt. But the eating experience gets worse, man in overalls comes in with a Boxer dog, and not a medically needed dog, and proceeds to have his meal with the dog laying in the floor. This seemed acceptable to management. Little bit of a different dining experience... More

The ribs were fall off the bone great. Highly recommend. The brisket was just average. Dry and not much flavor. The sides were good and filling.

Great BBQ and fast service. I eat there all the time. The ribs are fantastic. They have a variety of sauces to use and they are all delicious.

I live in the Conway area and I have eaten in the Whole Hog Cafe many times. If you are in the mood for Bar-b-Que this is where you need to go!

Really enjoyed the barbecue. It was cooked just right. The slaw and beans were good as well. I'm not a huge dessert fan, but the home made pecan pie was off the chain!

Whole Hog Cafe serves rather standard barbecue food. There isn't anything too special about the food at this restaurant. On the flip side, there isn't anything too bad either. The biggest advantage of this restaurant is that the service is super quick. By the time we found a table, our food was already done. In contrast to the overpricing that... More

This is really good bbq, just a bit overpriced. The sandwiches are very good, and it's fun to try all the sauces since there are lots of options and they all taste good. I do think they charge a bit much so the value takes a hit in my book.

This bbq is outstanding. It is some of the best I have ever had. The brisket is exceptionally good. Also the sauces they have on the table really add to the flavor. The number 3 sauce is my favorite as it has a little extra kick to it. Whole Hog also has restaurants in Little Rock, as well as in... More

The bbq meats at whole hog are oh so tasty. My only complaint...they tend to run our of certain meats during the course of any given day. It's always disappointing when they are out of the pork and the beef brisket. When they are available, these two are as good as anywhere. The bbq chicken is just OK. Another great... More
