If the countless awards on the wall aren't enough proof, the food is. Whole Hog has won many contests around the south for their barbecue. They also have six different sauces, ranging from sweet to sour to very hot. The potato salad is as good as I have ever had. The portions are generous and the place rocks at meal... More

Good bbq. Beans are good. Slaw is good. Potato salad is red potato if you like that. The service was ok. Limited desserts. Limited everything but it's a good place that I've been two twice and that I would go back to again. We had a large party and they took good care of us.

After reading other reviews on Trip Advisor, I was eager to have lunch at Whole Hog Café during our recent visit to Little Rock. This location is a few miles west of the main Riverfront/downtown area and is located in a regular strip mall. (According to Samantha Brown of the Travel Channel, some of the best meals are found in... More

Traveling through and both of us wanted BBQ, and luckily we found this place. Nothing fancy, just good food in nice portions. We split the ultimate platter which was brisket, ribs, pulled pork & chicken, 3 sides, and 2 rolls. Plenty of food for 2, and with the 7 different sauces was kinda fun mixing and matching. Potato salad and... More

In a city of great BBQ places, this relative new-comer has quickly established itself as one of the best. Great meats, with sux very different styles of sauces (seven if you count the Volcano). Try the combo plate for a variety. Recommended.

I've had bbq a lot and I always end up coming here. I love that it's local and it's always good. Their potato salad is so delicious. The food is consistent and the people are always welcoming. I love it!

No nonsense down to earth great barbecue! Excellent variety of sauces and salads too. Good for catering or to pick up. Also nice but busy lunch spot. Service is pretty quick. Friendly atmosphere no-frills.. Also family style meals to take home are very good. Generous portions too.

Lots of different flavors and grades of fire in your mouth BBQ sauses set the stage for a great southern experience. Lots of BBQ places around but this is... More

Good food at moderate prices. The ribs are the star. The sandwiches are good, but not great. Side dishes are ok. But now the ribs, are really good.

As a resident of Little Rock, there are a lot of options for BBQ. I can't say that I've tried them all. But of the one's I've tried, Whole Hog is consistently my favorite.
