Overall good food and service. Had the ribs and pulled chicken with a couple of sides. Chicken really good and ribs were ok. Service was good and place was clean. Good place to get good BBQ quickly. Recommended .

We tend to order to-go mostly and the guys at the register in LR are really funny and entertaining guys. They are really good at getting your special orders right the first time. The food is awesome...it must be because we keep going back. Love the salads with smoked chicken. Chicken always tender and not dried out. The tea is... More

We went to Whole Hog upon reading reviews. The first trip.... Wow the BBQ was amazing! Absolutely perfect and had a great atmosphere. So good in fact we went to the Cantrell location the next day, as it was open on Sunday. Not nearly as good that time, only average. It was drier and it wasn't as favorable. Still, the... More

My sister and I ate here we really enjoyed it. I had the pulled pork sandwich and it was very good. They offer several types of bbq sauce that is on the table and an explanation as to what each one is and the ingredients. Nice laid back atmosphere. I would highly recommend this place and would eat there again... More

If you come through Little Rock a stop at one of the Whole Hog locations is mandatory. All of the delicious meats and sides are reasonably priced. I have been to the Whole Hog several times and have yet to have a bad meal or leave hungry. Casual atmosphere and friendly staff complement the excellent food. If you are looking... More

Get here as soon s you can. This is a great Barbeque Chain in the greater LR area. The loaded bake potato is really good. I take all of my out of town guests here and they all love it.
