Being from Texas, I have eaten a lot of BBQ. I read good reviews about the Whole Hog Cafe, but my experience was a very average experience. We had the baked potato with pork (~$8). The serving size was large, but nothing to write home about with regard to the taste. My family member indicated that the restaurants in Conway... More

I totally "pigged" out here! I shared the ultimate platter with a buddy and we couldn't finish the whole thing. It was a whole lot of food! The whole thing was all pig! From brisket, ribs and loin to baked beans, potato salad and buns, this platter could have eaten me! It was HUGE! The potato salad was like non-other.... More

This award-winning cafe is definitely my favorite BBQ place in Little Rock, if not the state. The brisket is wonderful, the ribs are succulent, the pork is terrific, and you have your choice of six different sauces unique to the chain. You can even buy some to take home. The potato salad is delectable, the cole slaw and beans very... More

Food was good but a lil bit of sauce needed to moisten meat. They have 6 different sauces to choose from at the table. Was fun trying all the different flavors. Very reasonably priced and lot of food for the money. Overall, great place to stop and eat.

The restaurant was clean, well lit and the counter staff was friendly. My husband had the pulled pork plate with mac n cheese and baked beans. He said it was good, not spectacular. I tried a little taste and I enjoyed it very much. I had the brisket nachos, let me say first that the brisket was excellent but in... More

These folks won many awards and their menu offers many choices: pulled pork, pulled chicken, beef brisket, smoked sausage, pork loin, ribs, baked beans, potato salad, cheesy corn, side salad, cole slaw, and chips. What is a good meal without a good sauce. There are 6 sauces on every table and each is good in its own way. There is,... More

With 60+ in our party, the cafe did a great job of presenting hot food hot and cold food cold. The pulled pork and brisket were awesome with a selection of 6 sauces. The potato salad was "the best my son ever had" as well as Cole slaw and beans were excellent.

This is what BBQ should be and what a BBQ place should look like. Counter order, fast service, killer southern BBQ. Simple seating with plenty of elbow room and comfy booths.You also leave your plate, and mess, on the table to be bussed. ,I've eaten BBQ about everywhere, and it's all good. I often say when we leave a place,... More

Everything was good particularly the ribs. The potatoe salad is made with... More
