Whole Hog Cafe: North Little Rock, AR195
with Mike Johnston
Today I had the great pleasure to meet Rich Cosgrove, the enthusiastic owner of Whole Hog Cafe, along with his wife Nancy. Rich is pretty much a machine. He's a real high energy guy that believes in taking care of his employees in the most conscientious of ways. And in turn, they represent Whole Hog Cafe like owners and take great care to ensure that each and every barbecue lover enjoys their total experience there.
I enjoyed mine and their Memphis-style, pecan smoked barbecue. The pig is clearly the focus here and they are pretty darn good at it. I enjoyed the perfectly 'cued ribs, bark-filled pulled pork and the wonderfully seasoned pork loin.
Whole Hog Cafe is located North Little Rock, Arkansas. When you stop by, be sure say hi to Rich (although he'll probably beat you to it!) and enjoy some of his and Nancy's enchantment and some tasty 'cue...they're both served daily! #chasingbbq
