Whole Hog prepares and serves great BBQ consistently year after year. Reasonably priced, great variety and fresh ingredients.

Went there on a business lunch. The line was out the door but we had ordered and got our food in 10 minutes was very impressed. To top it off the pulled pork baked potato I had was fantastic. Good food fast can't beat that!

Six of us went to eat BBQ and we were all impressed. Service was quick and the food is amazing. I see why they've won so many awards. There are three Whole Hog Cafes but we were told the North Little Rock one is the best by someone in Little Rock. Try both the traditional and dry rub ribs.

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.

Thank Jerri1947
