Whole Hog Café

You can't talk about barbecue in Arkansas without talking about Whole Hog Cafe. The restaurant's 'cue was voted best in Little Rock by our readers. Thanks to computer-controlled, gas-fired smokers that maintain consistent flavor and quality in its meat, Whole Hog has developed into a burgeoning chain — with six locations in Arkansas, one in New Orleans, two in Memphis and two in New Mexico — capable of delivering vast amounts of mouthwatering food in minutes.

That unique marriage of speed and quality led us to hit up head hog Ron Blasingame to find out the numbers behind Whole Hog's success. Here are the daily averages for the flagship location in Riverdale, a regular on the list of top grossing restaurants in Little Rock. The numbers includes patrons served through catering and in the restaurant.
