I have many years of fond memories of barbecue at family owned White Pig Inn going back to the late 70's. I dropped by for lunch on Halloween. On, I suppose the plus side, the wait staff was in costume. On the negative side, so was the barbecue. I ordered a jumbo pork sandwich and a side of beans. Despite... More

I honestly don't understand how anyone could rate this place anything but terrible. However, I do have a friend that really likes this place so on occasion I suffer a meal. I have tried almost everything on the menu. The burgers are ok but the BBQ is absolutely horrendous. The meat, the sauces, the textures, all of it, absolutely terrible.

I am lucky that I get to work pretty close to the White Pig Inn. They have fantastic BBQ that you can smell if you are driving by this place. It might not look like much on the outside but they are serving up some great flavors inside. The servers are always friendly and attentive. Food doesn't take too long... More

My boyfriend and I had looked forward to dining there but when we walked in that changed. The waitress glared at us with open hostility. We are an interracial couple. He is white and I am African American. Her tone and demeanor displayed how she felt about us as she rudely asked if we were eating in or taking it... More

Great barbecue, hamburgers, ribs, and sausage!! They cater AND have a cozy restaurant if you want to eat in. Service can't be beat! Worth a try.

For all those looking for an original american BBQ restaurant, this is the place to go. This 1920 opened familie run business serves huge portions of grilled meat. I visit my Grandmother in Little Rock and she brought me to the White Pig Inn for Lunch. Good atmosphere and friendly staff! Christian from Austria

This is a third generation family business at the same location. If you try them once, you will be back. My favorite is the basic chopped beef sandwich, and be sure to get the slaw on the sandwich. You will not be sorry. The owner is friendly and the prices are very reasonable.

I lived in Little Rock for almost 5 months in 2010 and came here for lunch almost 3 times a week. This white pig has the character and charm that you would expect from a place that's been around for almost 100 years. The service can be a little slow, especially when they are busy, but the food is consistently... More

Okay, so when I travel I don't like to eat at places that I can eat at home so we took a chance on the White Pig. I keyed it up on my GPS and started driving. It's in an out of the way location, off the beaten path. When we arrived we were a little skeptical because of the... More
