Welcome to Groupon, Little Rock! For our inaugural deal, you get $16 worth of food and drinks for $8 at Whole Hog Café, with participating locations at 2516 Cantrell Road and Rock Creek Plaza. Because this is everyone's first Groupon, allow us to briefly explain how it works.
How Groupon Works
Groupon is a combination of the words group and coupon. Each day, we offer an unbeatable deal on the best of Little Rock: restaurants, spas, sporting events, theater, and more. By promising businesses a minimum number of customers, we get discounts you won't find anywhere else. We call it "collective buying power."
If you want to get the deal, just click BUY before the offer ends at midnight. If the minimum number of people (20 for today's deal) sign up by the end of the day, you'll be emailed a gift certificate the next morning. You can print your Groupons, or redeem them with our iPhone app. Use them whenever you want until the deal expires—today's expires in six months. If not enough people join, no one gets the deal (and you won't be charged), so invite your friends to make sure you get the discount!
Today's Groupon bathes your fingers in the sweet and savory sauce that Matthew McConaughey uses to grease the axles of his perpetual-motion machine made of meat: for $8, you get $16 worth of barbecue eats and drinks at Whole Hog Café. This Groupon is good for dine-in only at two Little Rock locations—at 2516 Cantrell Road and at Rock Creek Plaza on West Markham Street.
Whole Hog Café devotes itself to the timeless tradition of barbecue, with a menu of smoked and slathered favorites. Hang a fang on a full slab of Whole Hog's finest ribs ($17.99), which come with two savory sides—such as potato salad, coleslaw, or baked beans—and a generously flaky dinner roll. Or attack your appetite with the flavorful and fragmented force of barbecue nachos, which are available with beef or smoked chicken ($6.79) as well as with classic pulled pork ($5.99). All meats can be sauced to serve sweet teeth and fiery eyes alike, with liquid options ranging from the mild molasses of Sauce No. 1 to the brain-busting heat of Volcano, which is available at the counter only. Whole Hog Café also pours out spirited portions of both wine and beer in addition to freshly brewed tea straight from Little Rock's tea rivers.
Whole Hog Café is the result of the slaw-slung, pork-fired passion of founders Ron Blasingame, Mike "Sarge" Davis, and Steve Lucchi, who remain dedicated to giving Little Rock residents the best barbecue available. And with more championship trophies and awards than a trophy factory staffed by robots made from melted Nobel Peace Prizes, the restaurant continues to convert the masses to its mouthwatering mission. Join the fight against sauceless complacency with Whole Hog Café.
Whole Hog Café is closed on Sundays.
Whole Hog Café's numerous awards include Best Ribs 2008 and Best Barbecue 2009 from the Arkansas Times. Ninety percent of nearly 400 Urbanspooners recommend the Cantrell Road location, and Yelpers give the same location a 4.5-star average.
- Best pulled pork i have ever had.... ever. – mthrasher, Urbanspoon
- Barbeque is so subjective. The argument over who has the best in the world will forever rage and that is how it should be. For me the argument begins and ends at the door of Whole Hog Cafe. – Rufus, Urbanspoon
- This place is great BBQ at it's finest. – Byong Kyu S., Yelp
