because the Q is just THAT good! Recently snagged a quick carry-out on the way home from a meeting. There were three of us and we all tried something different. Ribs, pulled pork and 1/2 chicken were all flavorful and hearty portions. Potato salad is always a favorite side, and the beans and slaw served to further complement the overall... More

We got there not too long after lunchtime and the person in front of me got the last plate of ribs which was a bummer because I was told that their ribs are spectacular. The pork was really good and the brisket was ok. It wasn't bad at all but it wasn't mind blowing; however the tables full of all... More

My family and I were looking for somewhere to eat and we searched this on trip advisor...and we wernt disappointed. 6 different BBQ sauces all on every table so you can try them all. We are from Texas and we have some great BBQ, but this was awesome. My recommendations are the potato salad and cheesy corn as the sides.

This place is great for a quick, tasty meal in a casual dining atmosphere. You order at the counter and pick up your food when your number is called. I generally order the pulled pork with potato salad. The potato salad has dill in it and is one of the reasons I visit Whole Hog most times I'm in Little... More

Whole Hog Cafe is located in a strip shopping center. The restaurant is nicely decorated. They have an abundance of trophies displayed from all of the BBQ Contest they have won. I ordered a combination of Ribs and Pulled Pork my sides were baked beans and cheezy corn. The Ribs had a good flavor and were tender. The Pulled Pork... More

My favorite BBQ anywhere. I love the different sauces especially #6 with the pulled pork is awesome. The potato salad is great as well. Dinner rolls could be better but that is my only complaint.

We came here for cheap good BBQ while in little rock and that's what we got. Pulled pork was delicious. You get your choice of sauces T the table which I like so you can control how much you want. Very fast service! I'd go back but will maybe try a place to see what a little more money spent... More

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! My grandfather was known in Kansas City for his ribs, so I have high expectations when eating BBQ. The Whole Hog ribs did not disappoint! Liked the variety of sauces and the baked beans... delicious!
