BBQ that matches or bests KC/Texas BBQ

Melt-in-your-mouth meaty ribs, full-of-flavor chopped beef sandwich, tangy coleslaw and sweet baked beans made this one of the best BBQ meals I've had in years. And with the current 15th anniversary celebration, for 15 cents we got to try their amazing chocolate cake and strawberry cake. Sadly... read more

The BEST ribs I have ever had! My fiancé and I were driving through town and came across this restaurant for a late lunch and it was the highlight of our day! The Blues music in the background and Edison lights set a wonderful, relaxing tone and for our meal. We had wonderful service and conversation with the staff- everyone... More

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...
