I visited with friends for lunch. The service was fast and the food was great. I enjoyed the number 3 spicy BBQ sauce. I ordered some pulled chicken, potato salad, bread and coleslaw. The food was good value. Some of the best BBQ I have had in a restaurant.

Stopped by this restaurant because if offered airline mileage & had good reviews about their menu. Food was very tasty, and served very quickly. You can choose your own sauce at the table for dinner. Everything from sweet to very hot! Give it a try!

Absolutely the best BBQ we have found in central Arkansas, and we've tried lots. Perfectly smoky meats in generous portions paired with delicious side items (and we tried them all) make for the perfect BBQ experience. The staff is friendly, service is fast and the restaurant itself is very relaxing. Our favorite!!

Great food, I would recommend BBQ Chicken Nachos or he Frito Chili Pie both are great. Any of the meats and sauces are great as well.

The restaurant was casual but clean. You step up to the counter and order your food and seat herself. We met other couples at the place and set for a couple of hours chatting and enjoy each other. This did not seem to bother anybody there and they were very hospitable. While there the manager asked us to try a... More

The food was fabulous and the service suburb. The ribs were some of the best we've had. Having never been to Whole Hog before, we asked about the sauces, and even though we were getting our food to go, they gave us a plate and let us taste all of the sauces. We ended up with a six-pack of sauce... More

This was definitely not our first time here, just the first time submitting a review. We stop at Whole Hog 1-2 times a year when we pass through Little Rock, visiting or going on vacation. We always get some of the pulled pork and sausage to go. My husband also has to top off his sauces, normally a 6 pack... More
