The pulled pork was tender and had excellent flavor! The 6 sauces were all very distinct flavors and were fun to try! Cheesy corn, potato salad and baked beans had a very unique taste and were excellent!

Arkansas's Whole Hog barbeque, which has a number of locations in the capital city and across the state, is one of the best of its ilk, as testified to by a slew of trophies over the years. The brisket is great, the potato salad REAL good, the desserts fine, and the choice of six different sauces a kick. Try it;... More

Consistently rated #1 for Little Rock BBQ/Barbecue. Like the pulled pork with #3 of 5 choices offered, great potato salad, beans and slaw. Very simple atmosphere, as food is the real star here! Take home for a ready-made party. Even had them prepare smoked pork loin for our Christmas dinner.

You haven't had barbecue until you have eaten Whole Hog. Don't miss it! We eat here on a regular basis. There are 7 different sauces to choose from.

Whether you prefer ribs, pulled pork, or beef tenderloin, you can get the best barbecue at Whole Hog Café! Their potato salad and baked beans are fabulous! They have a choice of six sauces to choose from. Great food!

Best BBQ in Little Rock. Consistently the best BBQ joint around, can handle big parties or takeout. The pulled pork plate is great for lunch and the ribs, well you need a nap after nawing on those. Always tender and juicy, and they have 6 different sauces to pick from.

This is one of the best places in little rock to find some great BBQ! The loaded baked potato or even the loaded nachos are great plates that aren't their normal specialties.

My expectations weren't too high given the location and tired interior. However, the meats were excellent.we had ribs and chicken. Both were perfectly done. The only downside, was the sides. The salad came with a packet of dressing. The baked beans seamed to have come from a can. Go for the meat ,
