Every time I come to Little Rock , even though I didn't grow up here, I have to get BBQ and Whole Hog is the go to. I really like the unpretentious atmosphere and all the BBQ sauces on the tables (my favorite is 4 and 3 - the ones with a little kick). While everything is tasty and usually... More

Only place to go for barbecue in central Arkansas. Choice of meats good. Choice of sauces excellent, from vinegar to very sweet.

Visited for lunch 9-30-14. I beat the lunch crowd and it did fill up. I ordered the pork/beef plate with beans and coleslaw. Meat was great, beans were good and coleslaw was bad. They have 6 types of sauce at each table with plenty of seating. The restaurant was a little hard for me to find as it is in... More

Whole hog is one of the best places for BBQ in Little Rock! If you go eat there get pulled pork jumbo sandwich with the #3 sauce. Its great!

Good barbecue at reasonable prices. Casual atmosphere. Great selection of barbecue sauces from mild to spicy. My husband loves their potato salad and he's pretty picky since usually none live up to his mom's. Recommend that you check it out.

When you walk in the door you are facing a big menu on the wall and the order/checkout line. You order and pay, then fix your own drink and sit and wait for the food to be brought to your table. Everything on the menu is expensive for the amount of food you get. I order a Jumbo BBQ (no... More

I was in Little Rock on business and stopped here for lunch because I love BarBQ. They had just won the world championship of BarBQ and I know why. The best I have had in a long time. I recommend it for anyone looking for great BBQ.

Decided on this place after reading the TA reviews. Modern site in a strip mall a few miles from downtown area. When you walk in you can't help but notice the plethora of BBQ trophies adorining the walls and shelves. Almost too many. But I'll assume that's a good thing. You order at the counter and pickup at the counter.... More

Had dinner there; loved the experience (and I'm a seafood addict). Tried several sauces with the pulled pork - umm!
