I went for a business lunch. The place was busy, but quiet enough for easy conversation. The food was excellent and the service quick and friendly. I will definitely return. There really was no down side.

Whole Hog has great BBQ - we've had the pulled pork, the beef, the chicken, and the ribs...all were excellent and smoked perfectly. The 6 different kinds of sauce they offer on the table allows you to please a large group with different BBQ tastes (as everyone seems to have their own preference of sauce). They also have a location... More

With so many sauces, you just can't go wrong! The baby back ribs are tender and delicious. For a place that is soooo busy, the wait is never long.

I have had a lot of barbeque and this is hands down the best that there is. They have many sauces to choose from which accommodates every taste.

Heck, probably even in the whole state. Not overly smoked, but properly smoked. 7 sauces to fit whatever part of the country you think makes the best barbecue. Portion sizes are correct. They have great sweet tea. Seriously, what else is there to say? That they won Memphis in May several times for whole hog, ribs, pork shoulder? Yes, they... More

These guys win most of the BBQ awards and there is a good reason. Their food is wonderful. The best brisket in town!! And, the choice of 6 sauces makes everyone very happy.

Whole Hog is one of my two favorite BBQ joints in Little Rock. I'm not a pork fan, so I can only speak to beef, but their brisket is second-to-none! They also have a terrific variety of sauces to meet any regional preference. Highly recommend.

Did a presentation in LR. Whole Hog Cafe catered the lunch. Very good chicken and pork. Potatoes rocked! I would highly recommend for future catering events.
