I pretty much go here every Friday lunch time. I hav etried many options on the menu and have never been dissapointed. My favorite is the boneless rib meet over a jacket potato - simply delicious and very filling. You get a box on each table with 6 different BBQ sauces and if you are brave ask for the volcano...

The food is very good! Tender brisket and very tasty sauces. The potato salad is the best I've ever eaten. In fact I've tried numerous times to make it at home, but can't seem to match it. :( Definitely recommend stopping in if you're in the area!

Have eaten at the Cantrell Road and Rock Creek Plaza locations in Little Rock, AR, and have to say each was very, very good!

Best Bar-B-Q in Little Rock. Go here and you will not be disappointed! I have eaten in the restaurant and I have used them (take out) for a gathering at my home.

I was in Little Rock visiting family this past weekend and demanded BBQ since I have never tried BBQ in Arkansas. I ordered the brisket and pulled pork. The pulled pork was pretty delicious, but the brisket was just ok. I've had some amazing brisket right here in NYC so I was disappointed to find that the brisket at Whole... More

We came across this place because we were hungry and needed to eat. It was very good. In fact until we went to Memphis which was after this we thought this was the best BBQ we every had. Don't miss it if you are in the area.

We stopped here while traveling through Little Rock - okay food. Ribs were cooked well, brisket sandwich was a bit on the salty side, sauces were varied and good, and the cheesy corn was delicious. The only thing we did not like was that the meat is served luke-warm - we assume to prevent the meat from drying out.

Strip mall boiled brisket that tasted like it had never been near a wood fire! Tough ribs. Fairly good sauces. Overall sub-par your better off driving to Nicks BBQ Carlisle, Arkansas
