“Excellent Stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

Great experience! I came in for lunch on a Saturday and as soon as I filled my glass with coke my order was up! Plenty of places to sit and appropriate ambiance. I sat in a military themed area, I would have left my unit's patch if I had it. The food was great and I enjoyed trying all the different sauces. There was also staff available to watch the tables, refills, and general assistance. Loved sauce number 5!

“Great BBQ!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

Went for lunch with my family traveling thru Little Rock! My kids and I got the Pulled Pork and my wife got the pulled chicken! All of our sandwiches were really good with the coleslaw on top! The best thing about our lunch was the potato salad!! It was very good! Being from Kansas City we know good BBQ and the Whole Hog was pretty good!

“Saturday dinner date...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

Sugar Bear & I were returning from a trip from Memphis when we decided to stop in for some BBQ at whole hog! The restaurant looked newly renovated. The staff was friendly, the dinning area & restrooms were clean. There was interesting decor that adorned the walls. It was self service, meaning you ordered at the counter, fixed your own drinks, & picked up your own food at the counter before you selected your seat. The price for dinning was fair. There were 6 sauces available to try. The ribs were the best. Really didn't need a sauce. The potato salad was outstanding! The pulled pork & brisket were just average. We didn't indulge in desert, but it was available. We would definitely go back!

“Smoked Turkey during Thanksgiving...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

To die for! We had it at work for our thanksgiving party. It was moist and so flavorful! We have been to the restaurant too and the BBQ is delicious! Very clean and staff always very nice. Have never been here and had bad service, and food is always great!

“Outstanding Meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

Ate here late on a Saturday evening (about an hour from closing), just a few cars in parking lot. Was a little nervous that the reviews weren't accurate, but was pleasantly surprised when our food arrived!
Ordering was easy (even with 3 tired kids). The man taking our orders was extremely helpful. The food was outstanding. My son especially like the pulled rib meat sandwich...great taste of ribs without the mess!!
Chicken and ribs were all great too! We really enjoyed trying all 6 different BBQ sauces. Everyone enjoyed a different one.
Nice atmosphere, staff all very friendly (even though it was close to closing time)! Not as expensive as some of our good BBQ places in Texas.
Excellent find, would definitely come here again if in Little Rock!
