Must have gotten the wrong thing. Ordered the pulled pork sandwich and okra. The sandwich had so much sugary sauce on it that you could not taste the pork, the okra tasted like the pre breaded frozen type. The service was bad, I ran out of my drink before I was half way finished with my meal and it was... More

Ribs are better than average, service bad, sweet tea bad too. Sides were ok. Very large hog statue outside that the kids thought was cool.

Stopped here based on previous reviews. It was really good. The chef came out and talked to us for a while. He said he started working at 4am. The food reflected his dedication and talent. We highly recommend stopping and enjoying the food here. We will be stopping again the next time we travel through Conway.

Hog pen is a decent choice for BBQ in Conway. However, there are better choices in the area. One main problem with hog pen is its location right next to a tobacco store. The food is decent but nothing outstanding. Personally, my endorsement for best BBQ in Conway would be smokehouse BBQ.

Hands down the best ribs I've had. Period. If you think you've had good ribs, come try these ribs. You will be slappin yo momma after the first bite! I've asked Dennis for his rub recipe and he says he has thought about selling it but he has since decided to keep it close to his heart. I agree. A... More

The last week of March '14 we were traveling and decided to find BBQ in Conway. Local person said you want Hog Pen. Were we ever surprised, The food had an outstanding smoke flavor - not smothered in sauce, although sauce was available. We told them it was a first time in town. They gave each of us a sample...

If you don't get anything else, try the ribs. Whew. Meaty, tender, beauties you'll love. From Georgia, I've had a lot of ribs. This is the top of the stack.

If you are in Conway AR on Thursday, Friday or Saturday and like barbecue, especially ribs, this is a MUST STOP! Absolutely the best ribs I have ever eaten! And be sure to meet Dennis, owner/barbecue master/great guy. We will definitely be back!
