There is none better!

I've had a fair number of delicious BBQ meals across the U.S. This is right up there with the very best ever! The number of awards and trophies on their shelf proves that! Because it's Arkansas, the price is very modest. So, get in here and enjoy your wonderful meal!

We are from Texas where Barbecue is our thing - but Whole Hog Barbecue cafe is the best!! Their ribs were outstanding and their potato salad and baked beans were amazing!!! We tried all 7 of their barbecue sauces (6 on the table) and the volcano sauce behind the counter!! If you like Spicy Hot it is a must try!!

These guys do it right! Eating in the restaurant is a pleasant experience because the service is quick and the food is really good. The sliced beef plate and sandwiches are really great. They have the BEST potato salad I've ever eaten. They also have stuffed baked potatoes, which I love, and not all BBQ restaurants offer them. I recommend... More

Every item is fresh and plenty.. You will not leave hungry. I like beef myself but everyone brags on the pork also.

This is a great little place for good ole Southern barbecue. The taste is great, the atmosphere family style, and the price is right. You must have the potato salad. It tastes like it's made with sour cream and it is rich. My sons like the ribs. Very casual.

Stopped on our way cross country and there were quite a bit of people waiting in line. Evidently there a crew of news reporters filming a segment as we arrived. I think it slowed down the service a little. We ordered barbecue sandwiches, a brisket sandwich and a plate of ribs. Felt that there were not enough side dishes to... More

The best bbq I've ever had! The potato salad is KILLER!!! If you ever try Whole Hog Cafe, you'll never want to eat any other bbq ever again. And the Volcano sauce is super yummy, they tell you to "Eat at your own risk", it's very hot but delicious! πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜πŸ˜„

This eatery is located in a strip mall. I ordered the 4-bone ribs (which only had 3 bones, BTW). The meat was extremely tender: it was falling off the bone. The ribs came with much BBQ sauce on them. I also had baked beans, which were good but rather sweet. To get your food, you order at a counter, and... More

Ribs, brisket and the half chicken are all excellent. I could eat BBQ 5 days a week and this is the best I've had in Little Rock. Potato salad and beans are good as well.
