This restaurant operates a small outpost at the airport on Crisp Street - that is my exposure to the place. It is very convenient if you are just looking to grab a tasty BBQ lunch or supper between flights. Friendly folks and great BBQ. I was surprised to see they aren't open on Saturday - not sure about Sunday.

We ate here the other night. Everything was so good, pulled pork, pulled chicken, ribs, brisket. The sides of corn, beans were good, but such great cole slaw!!

Little Rock has many excellent BBQ places, but Whole Hog is our favorite: smoky and flavorful and not too fatty. My husband and I ordered the large platter of pulled pork and an extra plate, because it's plenty for two hungry adults. We like the potato salad and slaw for our two sides. The beans aren't very interesting; they need... More

I got the pulled pork, plain. I am diabetic. My husband and daughter had the experience of trying the 6 different sauces on the table. I would definitely eat here again if we lived here. We are from Iowa and were passing through on the way to the Crater of Diamonds State Park.

Wonderful selection of sauces. They enhance the choices of meats. Whatever meat you like will be favorable.

I stopped in here on the BBQ trail and knew I was in the right place when I saw all of the BBQ competition trophies around the dining room. I had the combo plate with brisket and pulled pork and sampled them with all six of the sauces offered at the table. The BBQ was moist and tender and had... More

It was some of the best BBQ I've ever had. I don't usually enjoy dry ribs (no sauce) but these were wonderful. The potato salad was the best I've had. I usually hate potato salad and cole slaw, but Whole Hog did just wonderful. Super nice service and free refills on drinks.
