Ate here on a Thursday evening. Place wasn't crowded at all. First time eating here. The reviews were good so decided to try it. Once I ordered and sat down, it took less than 5 minutes for them to call my number. Ordered the full rack of baby back ribs. It was pretty good. The sauce was delicious. I added... More

Whole Hog is my go to place when visiting Little Rock. We have eaten there many times. They have won many awards, displayed in the restaurant. Simple decor focused on food rather than creature comforts, but worth the trip. Their shredded pork, ribs, or pork sandwhich is worth the trip. They have several different sauces served separately from mild to... More

One pork baked potato with 2 and 3 and a big pork salad with 6, perfect! The Q is great however you get it, and you will find your taste in the 6 sauces, mix and match as you see fit😊

My family and I eat here on a regular basis. I love the Chicken. The servings are large so we usually get two meals and share between our family of 4.

We were in Little Rock for just one night, and I was yearning for some BBQ, something not so easy to get in Southern California. I actually read up on the restaurant in Trip Advisors, so thought I would give it a try. Got there, and decided on the Whole Hog platter, with one substitution - I got a sample... More

The meats are excellent. We bought the meat here to serve at our daughter's wedding. Potato salad is also unique and very good.

Can't beat the menu, walk to or from theater, no extra driving or parking. It's casual. Find something good to eat and drink for all ages. Eat in or take out. Pulled pork sandwiches stacked high, choice of various barbecue sauces. Best potato salad ever!

A small chain, the Whole Hog Cafe' was started by a BBQ Team that won top honors for several years in the Memphis in May World Championship Barbeque Cooking Contest. Some might say:: "That's as strong as hog's breath!" My order @ is usually either:: 1/2 Slab Wet Ribs $10.99 OR Pulled Pork Sandwich Plate with 2 Sides $8.49 A... More

We had a party of 17 family members gathering to eat. They were eager to assist us in all setting close. Plenty of room and very attentive staff. The BEST part about this restaurant for me was the gluten free choices.
