Whole Hog is the place to go for consistently good pulled pork or ribs. Today they had a "Pulled Rib Plate". Rib meat with none of the mess. Already pulled from the bone. $9.95. Can't beat that with a wet squirrel..... always busy and always good. Fast service - what's nit yo like about this place!!

My husband and I ate here for lunch on our way through town. We both enjoyed the pork BBQ. The portion sizes were quite large, too. We would definitely visit again.

I was impressed with all the awards and trophies on display for their "award winning" BBQ, but I found my meal to be lackluster. I was also disappointed in their cafeteria style service and seating. There is plenty of parking. The beverages are help yourself and the staff doesn't really need to wait on you.

Nye they closed at 5pm. We wanted bbq before the new year. It was 4:30 when we placed our order. Hubby went and got pulled pork, potatoes salad and beans. All were so fresh like they just cooked it. I'm never disappointed when we go there, no matter the time of day. Their food is always Yummy!

I love the dry ribs. #6 sauce on the side. BBQ is good here! I've been to 2 of the locations, easily each is as good as the other!

We stopped at Whole Hog Cafe on our way home to Houston from Memphis-great barbecue meats with a wide variety of sauces to suit every taste. Whether you like sweet, spicy, smoky, mustard based, etc., you will find one that complements your food choice and makes your taste buds sing! We couldn't decide which sauce was our favorite so we...

This is honest BBQ: My Ribs were tender yet had a good Bark and proper spice with just a light coating of sauce. The sides were good as well with excellent service. I will be back.

We were ready for lunch while traveling and we like to seek out local restaurants and not the chain stuff you could get back home. We found this place from the Food Network and on TA, so we knew we had to stop in. The BBQ was delicious and the potato salad was very good! The portions were more than... More

Take your pick of one of six sauces to sauce up your "que" and dig in! And if you like super spicy ask for the sauce they only give on demand... The meat is seasoned so well you have your "que" naked ooh, risque! Most meals under $12. One of the best taste per value choices in LR!
