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.

I ordered the 3,meat dinner ribs sausage and pull pork, the ribs were not the best try and over done, everything else was very good. Potato salad was still the best. Overall, fair bbq, I have had better in the area. For less money

I love the pulled BBQ at Whole Hog. It has an awesome taste and well smoked. They have five or six different sauces to chose from. I love the pulled pork salad with the hot sauce as a dressing. Yum.

Whole Hog is a great place to relax and visit with friends or family while enjoying delicious BBQ. Beans and slaw are good, too. My favorite is the sliced beef. Several different sauces are available from which to choose. They have brownies and cakes for dessert.

A local friend recommended this, but we can't tell why. Overcrowded, noisy, slow service, mediocre food, way overpriced, strip-mall cubbyhole atmosphere, etc... Being from Texas there is precious little appeal to pork bbq, except the very popular (in this region) "pulled pork", which can be terrible & totally depends on the sauce and how long it's been laying around. We... More

The outside may have one concerned however the food, service and inside is a nice local place we found passing through. Will be back here if In town again. I would recommend trying the local BBQ by the register. Excellent.
