They do all of the basic things very well and the BBQ sauce selections are really good. I would recommend this place to anyone!

This place never disappoints! Good sides great meats. Love this place! A smudge higher priced, but VERY much worth the price paid. Have never left while hog hungry or unhappy.

If I want BBQ in North Little Rock, this is where I go! I especially enjoy the loaded baked potato. They have a variety of six sauces that all vary in taste and heat. They usually have some pretty good desserts on hand too.

Awesome food. My daughter always orders the ribs, but everything there is fantastic. Nothing is fried so don't count on French fries or fried okra.

I have eaten twice here recently. Both times I ordered the pulled pork plate with slaw and potato salad. The portions were plentiful and I brought half of it home for another meal. The prices are very affordable and they have beer and wine, if desired.

I'm in Little Rock for work and a coworker suggested I try Whole Hog before I leave. I stopped by and ordered the combo plate. The food was great and they have a wide range of BBQ sauces to choose from. I will definitely be going back before I leave.

I remember when there was only one small location on Cantrell road. Now Whole Hog has grown into a multi state chain - but they haven't lost that flavor and the ribs are as good as ever!! Fast service too. The main sides are beans, slaw and potato salad all are very very good!! You can't wrong with Whole Hog!!
