Excellent quality. Wonderful flavor and very tender. Servings are large and yet priced nicely. Definitely will be going back.

The meat is always good and tender. I absolutely love it. I don't really like the sauces they offer, even though they have so many different options. Honestly, Smitty's has the best sauces and their meat is good, but not as consistent. When I order BBQ for out of towners, I get the meat from Whole Hog and buy sauce... More

Another trip to Conway, another visit to Whole Hog Cafe for BBQ. The locals agree, this is the place to go for award winning Arkansas BBQ. On my earlier visits I had the pulled pork sandwich and the pulled pork stuffed potato. This time I had the combo plate with brisket and pork loin. Delicious! The meat was tender and... More

I had the pulled pork sandwich with potato salad and baked beans. Everything was awesome. Great service too! There are about 6 different bbq sauces sitting on the table if you decide to dine in. The potato salad is so good it's ridiculous! If you don't like this food there is something wrong with you.

The BBQ pork was perfectly cooked, tender and shredded. There are six different sauces sitting on the table so it takes a few bites to decide which sauce to use. The coleslaw was fresh, but plain...not much seasoning on it at all, The potato salad has a thick sauce that made us wonder what it was made out of? ...But... More

Sometimes places live up to the hype of others, sometimes they don't - that's the lesson from a recent visit to Whole Hog Cafe. The problem here is NOT the food, it was good but the problem is twofold - the portions and the price do not match. In our party, one person had the two meat platter while another... More

BBQ came out quickly and hot! It was about 6pm, with several tables already filled. The 1/2 was the best I have had in a long time, the flavor of the seasoning was tasted from front to back. The 2 meat plate could have had more meat on it. Potato salad and slaw were both good. Staff were friendly. 6... More

Best BBQ I've ever had that wasn't named Central BBQ (sorry Whole Hog if you're reading this). The sauces are awesome, the meats are good. Go here for great BBQ, just great BBQ.

My next road trip is going to be somewhere in Arkansas so I can have Whole Hog Cafe again. Ate at a few of the locations last time down there and none of them let me down. Very consistent. The meat was seasoned perfectly and hard to choose one of the sauces. That's why I kept coming back.

We had heard of this place and wanted to try it out. We took our folks who are elderly with us. We walked in and seated ourselves. It is a relaxed, down-home atmosphere. You order at the window and pick up when they call your number. It was pretty quick. They have pork, chicken and beef brisket in various presentations.... More
