First time in Little Rock and found this spot. Glad we stopped in because the food was great. Had the 4 Bone Ribs and the Pulled Pork and it was really good. The potato salad was also very good, thick, but good! Baked beans were also good. I would eat here again in a heartbeat and try other things on... More

My co-workers and I sprint over for lunch on weekends sometimes. Service is generally fast. The pulled pork is crusty and delicious and they have an overwhelming number of sauces at the table with nice little descriptions on them. I love the one that has mustard in it (and vinegar too I believe). The potato salad is the best of... More

My family went here for the high reviews it received, but I don't know why it received such high ratings. I would give this more of 3 1/2 stars. Staff wasn't too friendly and when asked for recommendations, they were as helpful as a screen door on a submarine. Highlights were it was close to our hotel, prices were decent,... More

The service at Whole Hog is excellent, however the food is average at best. The pulled chicken had good flavor, but was dry. I enjoy the laid back atmosphere which is great for a family outing.

Great meat choices available from this multi-award winning BBQ joint, which was featured in the Southwest Airlines magazine years ago. A great choice in types of sauces also. Go to the location at the bottom of Cantrell Road to see all their trophies.

Whole Hog does a lot of things right. At the top of the list is their pulled/chopped pork, ribs, potato salad, and sauces. Consistent and good. Their other offerings (sausage, brisket) are good but not great.
