Had dinner there; loved the experience (and I'm a seafood addict). Tried several sauces with the pulled pork - umm!

Best barbecue in town. Choice of 6 sauces. Meat is tender, potato salad is fantastic, restaurants (2 in Little Rock, as far as I know) are roomy and clean, if appropriately casual.

We loved this place. Definitely worth checking out if you're a fan of BBQ food. The brisket was delicious.

We've never ordered anything we didn't like from the meat to the sides. The whole family loves experimenting with the sauces too. It's not the best BBQ I've ever had, but I've eaten BBQ across the country and Whole Hog is very good.

If you want to judge a BBQ joint, check out it's lunch time crowd. Those are the folks that are willing to leave work and give up some of their prescious lunch minutes to stand in line for a chance to eat good food. Whole Hog packs them in for lunch every day. The do a fine job on all... More

This BBQ is my favorite. It never disappoints and everything is fabulous. You cannot order a bad item off their menu

Take your pick from 6 different flavors of sauces. Delicious beans and potato salad! Polite staff, too. The only disappointment was the meat was not cut when ordered. Therefore, it was dried out. However, the sauces made it much better.

I normally enjoy chicken and pork BBQ, however on my visit they were out of chicken so I tried the brisket. It was amazing. It was also $17 a pound. It was really good though. The pork was good as well certainly better than average, but not the best I've ever had. I eat a lot off BBQ though. The... More
