We found this restaurant using TripAdvisor. It was given a high rating and we found out why. We ordered a sampler plate with sausage, pulled pork, brisket and ribs. It was all pretty good. It was enough for both of us and some left over. They had about 4-5 different sauces. I would definitely go back if we are in... More

They have stuffed potatoes here. They have tamales here. But what you really should only eat is the BBQ! The plates are huge ones. The plates come with what Arkansans call fixins. So, you could hide a couple of kids under the table and feed them from your plate, too. Just Kidding! So, get BBQ, a glass of sweet tea... More

We've lived here in Hot Springs for 22 years, my husband was born and raised here. There's no other place including McClard's I will go for BBQ. The business started in a food wagon at the county fair in about 96 or 97. I told them then they should open a restaurant. They have several kinds of sauces; sweet, hot,... More

Not so great. Meat has been cooked too long. Very dry. Need to add a lot of sauce to eat it. Sides were ok: mustard potato salad, baked potato salad, Cole slaw, and baked beans.

Found this place after asking locals and was well pleased. I had half a chicken, which fell off the bone, and my wife had catfish, which was also good. Great onion rings and ice cold draft beer topped off the feast. Good selection of BBQ sauce - all reasonably priced. Order at counter and retrieve to table when the order... More

You drive up and the place smells like smoke . You go inside and then you smell like smoke the rest of the day. I ordered brisket and it was the worst stuff ever . It was thin sliced like a cheese steak sandwich rubbery like texture , like it had been smoked in water or even brined ? Nasty... More

I had eaten here about 3 times but had not been back in over 2 years. When I finally did get to come back it was still great!

The best BBQ place in Hot Springs. Wide selection of meats causes me difficulty choosing an entree. So the sampler plate is the answer heaping portions of pulled pork, brisket, sausage and 4 ribs with 2 sides. A plate for a very hearty eater or easily shared by 2. You also have your choice several types of sauce to suit... More

First time to try this place and it was mostly good, but couldn't rate it very good. Ribs were tasty but were a little dry. One of the party got the sampler and their beef looked and tasted like it had been boiled. It was not good. Sides were very good and the portions were very good. Will try again,... More
