I have been visiting this location for many years now. The ribs are always great. The brisket is always really good too. I prefer pork to be chopped for sandwiches as opposed to the pulled method, so it's the thing I order the least, but my family enjoys them every time we go. Make sure to ask for the volcano... More

The best BBQ in town and really anywhere in my opinion. There's really nothing I don't like about this place. Love the BBQ nachos!

Ok, it's kind of fun to go here. The one on Cantrell gets very busy with working crowd. HOWEVER, for being a bbq place, the sauces are not unique. You'll get some 5 or 6 choices in bottles at the table, you'll order at one big line in the front. It's fun to try the various flavors, but in the... More

I've had a fair number of delicious BBQ meals across the U.S. This is right up there with the very best ever! The number of awards and trophies on their shelf proves that! Because it's Arkansas, the price is very modest. So, get in here and enjoy your wonderful meal!

We are from Texas where Barbecue is our thing - but Whole Hog Barbecue cafe is the best!! Their ribs were outstanding and their potato salad and baked beans were amazing!!! We tried all 7 of their barbecue sauces (6 on the table) and the volcano sauce behind the counter!! If you like Spicy Hot it is a must try!!

These guys do it right! Eating in the restaurant is a pleasant experience because the service is quick and the food is really good. The sliced beef plate and sandwiches are really great. They have the BEST potato salad I've ever eaten. They also have stuffed baked potatoes, which I love, and not all BBQ restaurants offer them. I recommend... More

Every item is fresh and plenty.. You will not leave hungry. I like beef myself but everyone brags on the pork also.

This is a great little place for good ole Southern barbecue. The taste is great, the atmosphere family style, and the price is right. You must have the potato salad. It tastes like it's made with sour cream and it is rich. My sons like the ribs. Very casual.
