Best BBQ in LR

Ribs, brisket and the half chicken are all excellent. I could eat BBQ 5 days a week and this is the best I've had in Little Rock. Potato salad and beans are good as well.

Whole Hog Cafe and Catering has the most delicious entrees, sides and sweets in Arkansas. If you order BBQ, there are six different kinds of sauces to top your meat. Yes, they have great meals but save room for the desserts!! Wow!

This is my favorite Bar B Q. My family loves it too. Everyone lloves the potato salad, beans, slaw, chicken, and pork. We get it for tail gating, Christmas Eve, Sunday night dinners and tons of other times. It's the best!!

It's a nice atmosphere for friends to get together, though loud at times... The food is good, not great or what you might expect of a Memphis World BBQ Championship winner, but the aren't serving the same BBQ that won in Memphis either. Service is no frills, order at the front and pick-up when your number is called, though they... More

I have been eating at this location and the one on Bowman RD for sometime. The food is always very good and the servings are large and plentiful. One certainly gets value for their money. Service is fast, facility is nice and clean. Just a nice place to take a friend, date or family.

They have hand pulled Pork,Chicken, and Beef BBQ sandwiches and dinner/lunch plates. There are several sauce choices on every table, and good service. I think its the best BBQ in Little Rock.

Definitely one of my favorite barbeque places. The food is always delicious - never, every had anything bad, or even average. I really like that you have so many sauces to choose from. So often people favor one bbq place over another because of the sauce, not the meat. Whole Hog fixes that problem. Service is great. Everyone is always... More

I had BBQ at another restaurant this week and once again I am convinced Whole Hog BBQ is the best. I love their pulled pork sandwich with slaw on it. People who are not from around here get confused about the slaw. It makes the sandwich crunchy and good. They should try it. I once had BBQ pork in Indiana.... More

BBQ is a definite personal preference for a southerner, and Whole Hog (the original on Cantrell Road in Riverdale near home) is my favorite in Arkansas. The quality of the meat is excellent, and the six-pack of various sauces on the table lets me customize the taste to suit me. My go-to meal is the pulled pork plate, make it... More
