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!!

First time here at the recommendation of my buddy who told me this was the place in north Little Rock. I had the platter and an ice tea for just over 20 bucks and it was excellent and way more then I could eat. Trust me when I say this is the place for BBQ in North Little Rock

I love their BBQ as it is the closest I've found to Memphis style BBQ outside of Memphis. They also make amazing potato salad. I visit here every time I come to town for work. The service is fast casual, but the staff keep everything well stocked and dirty tables are cleaned quickly.

I went with co-workers for an early dinner, about 4:30 PM on a Thursday. We had 6 people in our group, and there was only one other couple in the restaurant at the time. It took a while for our food to be ready, and my ribs were lukewarm to cool. Everything tasted good, and there was certainly enough food,... More

Can't go wrong with dinner at Whole Hog. It's good, solid (typical) Arkansas BBQ. Like many chain restaurants it doesn't have much flare and cab be a little boring, but everything tastes good and serving size is ample.
