“Good BBQ Sauce”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

We stopped at the Bentonville location on our way home from Eureka Springs again. The BBQ nachos are really good if you like liquid cheese. But once you get meat and BBQ sauce on top of that it's really good. The ribs are good, too. I really like the sauces the best. It's a good, quick BBQ place to stop on our way through town. The employees were friendly enough, but it would be nice to see at least one employee over the age of 30. When we were there, it kind of looked like the only employees were high school kids.

“Two Presidents gave this Four Thumbs Up”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Multiple American Presidents have eaten the food here and described it as they best they had. Great pork and chicken. Small restaurant. When you walk inside you may notice the hundreds of trophies and awards they have won over the decades they have been open.

“Over priced for quality of food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

They must like their name but I wasn't real impressed. Food wasn't bad but I have had better for less cost.

“Going downhill”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

I have been a Whole Hog fan for years, ever since they moved to NWA I have always loved eating here and recommended when asked where the good BBQ was in town. While the food is great and don't see that going anywhere, the service is absolutely awful in the Bentonville location. The last few times I have been in the girls at the cash register are downright rude. I realize you get busy, but there is no reason to treat paying customers so badly. I would recommend to management to put some emphasis in on improving the service...
Also, just a comment about the takeout service: I don't care if you want to charge extra for BBQ sauce, but please tell your takeout customers this information before they get home with their food and realize that there is no sauce in their order. Very disappointing to get home with BBQ and no sauce....

“The trophies speak for themselves...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

The Trophies at Whole Hog speak for themselves. This is some GREAT BBQ. Awesome sauces (I think there are 8 to choose from). Their Potato salad is amazing too! Not much on atmosphere, but you are so busy licking your fingers, you don't have much time to look around.
