I love this place! I went here with my service dog and my caregiver. The food and service are both excellent! They even brought us a big bone for my service dog. Good space in restaurants so it's easier to navigate blind. 5 stars!!!

Great place for bbq, but if you decide to try Whole Hog you can’t miss the potato salad. It’s the best in Little Rock!

The Whole Hog Cafe offered a variety of bar-b-que selections. The combination platters for sausage, ribs, brisket and chicken is great. Went to the one in North Little Rock next to McCain Mall. They sell cake and pie for dessert👍👍👍

At last, an above average BBQ experience in Arkansas! The meaty ribs were moist and tender, with an understated rub and glaze that invited experimenting with the 6 different sauces on the table. The spiciest of the 6 worked well, as did the molasses sauce,...More

I travel often and a good BBQ Joint, great ribs are my getaway from the road. This place came well recommended. Unfortunately I was an afterthought to the Happy lady at the register who took my order. Her annoyance was palpable with me, perhaps because...More

They don't typically deliver but it is worth picking up in my opinion. Easy parking; quick in and out.
