Went in close to noon today (6/21/16) and had the barbecue salad. I was the only customer in the place. The meat was so tough that it was inedible. I packed up most of it and will feed to the possums tonight. This is the second time that I've eaten here in the last 3 years and had a bad... More

We like this place, mom and pop type BBQ restaurant. Love the BBQ and the BBQ nachos are very good. Only issue is they serve Pepsi products and I'm a coke person. But doesn't stop me from going!!

My favorite in Arkansas though it can't compete with BBQ in Houston. However, this place is great and they no longer put cole slaw IN the BBQ like they used too. Man, why would anyone ruin BBQ by putting cole slaw in it? Only people from Tn & Ms who don't know better hehe. Anyway, they are consistent, good service... More

Having spent entire vacations searching Tennessee, Mississippi and Arkansas for the best pork BBQ, I found it to exist at Jo Jo's in North Little Rock, AR. Forget Sims with its fatty meat and white bread or Lindsey's with it's bland sauce. Jo Jo's is the best. Can you hear them cutting cabbage into slaw on the cutting board? Just... More
