Reviewed 18 April 2014

We tend to order to-go mostly and the guys at the register in LR are really funny and entertaining guys. They are really good at getting your special orders right the first time. The food is awesome...it must be because we keep going back. Love the salads with smoked chicken. Chicken always tender and not dried out. The tea is also delicious! We also enjoy having special events there.

“Shouldn't be missed!”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

I went for a business lunch. The place was busy, but quiet enough for easy conversation. The food was excellent and the service quick and friendly. I will definitely return. There really was no down side.

“Great BBQ in LR”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

Whole Hog has great BBQ - we've had the pulled pork, the beef, the chicken, and the ribs...all were excellent and smoked perfectly. The 6 different kinds of sauce they offer on the table allows you to please a large group with different BBQ tastes (as everyone seems to have their own preference of sauce). They also have a location at the airport that is just as good. My only complaint is their potato salad is mayonnaise-based, not mustard-based, but that is just a personal preference...I still give them 5 stars.

“Best barbecue in town!”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

With so many sauces, you just can't go wrong! The baby back ribs are tender and delicious.

For a place that is soooo busy, the wait is never long.

“Great BBQ at a Fair Price”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

As a business person have take several hundred different people to this restaurant. Besides myself everyone has been very please with the quality, quantity and service at Whole Hog. The headquarters is located on Cantrell Road in Little Rock and I and others feel that the main store has better food and the North Little Rock location, if that is possible. If you are BBQ lover you have to at least give these folks a shot!
