Well priced, quick service and the food is always really good. Lunch time is always full but well worth it.

Did the combo platter in was really happy with the flavors. I enjoyed the homemade barbecue sauce and felt it had good flavor. Huge fan of barbecue and really would recommend.

I frequent this place every couple of months or so. The Bbq is good. The service is good. But the recent increase in price is a bit steep. 23$ for a slab of ribs(maybe 12 bones). Are the ribs good? Absolutely... but there isn’t much...More

Hey there, I'm afraid you may be reviewing another Whole Hog, not North Little Rock. Our ribs are $19.99 per slab; and that has not changed in 10 years. North Little Rock recently increased our Sales Tax by 1% which may be what you're seeing....More

We have been to two locations and have had excellent service and meals at both locations. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable about celiacs for sister and we had no problems. This is our favorite BBQ location in Little Rock.

Great food here at a reasonable price. I had the chopped pork sandwich ,potato salad , and side salad. Their meats are outstanding with a selection of sauces on the table (number 3 spicy is my favorite). One of my favorites in Little Rock.

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!!!

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