Cold, dry and tasteless. If that's how you like your pulled pork and ribs, by all means eat here. What I ordered was almost inedible. Maybe it was the time of day (early afternoon) or this particular location (in a strip mall), but the food here wasn't worth crossing the street for, much less driving for 40 minutes, as I... More

As a Southerner, i have grown up tasting the many shades of barbeque according to region, method of cooking, sauce, and choice of condiments. By far the best option in Little Rock, Arkansas is the Whole Hog Cafe located at the bottom of Cantrell Hill. The location is convenient to downtown and several historic and affluent neighborhoods, so the mix... More

If you are looking for a great locally owned BBQ place, look no further. This puts those pig chain places to shame. Fun casual atmosphere located minutes from downtown. Busy at lunch on weekdays but still quick service. A must do while in LR.

If the countless awards on the wall aren't enough proof, the food is. Whole Hog has won many contests around the south for their barbecue. They also have six different sauces, ranging from sweet to sour to very hot. The potato salad is as good as I have ever had. The portions are generous and the place rocks at meal... More

Good bbq. Beans are good. Slaw is good. Potato salad is red potato if you like that. The service was ok. Limited desserts. Limited everything but it's a good place that I've been two twice and that I would go back to again. We had a large party and they took good care of us.

After reading other reviews on Trip Advisor, I was eager to have lunch at Whole Hog Café during our recent visit to Little Rock. This location is a few miles west of the main Riverfront/downtown area and is located in a regular strip mall. (According to Samantha Brown of the Travel Channel, some of the best meals are found in... More

Traveling through and both of us wanted BBQ, and luckily we found this place. Nothing fancy, just good food in nice portions. We split the ultimate platter which was brisket, ribs, pulled pork & chicken, 3 sides, and 2 rolls. Plenty of food for 2, and with the 7 different sauces was kinda fun mixing and matching. Potato salad and... More
