My wife and I was in town for some business. We decided to try out this place on a Saturday evening around 6:00 pm. Not many customers so we were able to get right in. The person that took our order at the counter was not overly friendly. We filled our drinks at a dirty drink station and sat ourselves... More

One daughter TRIED to order brisket, but was told they were out! Seriously? A BBQ joint that is out of brisket? Anyway, my ribs were covered in a... More

Best BBQ in town and there are a lot of BBQ places around Conway! Nice family atmosphere. Very reasonable prices. Very handy drive-thru window if you just want to stop by and pick something up and take it home.

Ordered the ribs. They were caked in molasses, barbequed, they were dry and burnt. But the eating experience gets worse, man in overalls comes in with a Boxer dog, and not a medically needed dog, and proceeds to have his meal with the dog laying in the floor. This seemed acceptable to management. Little bit of a different dining experience... More

The ribs were fall off the bone great. Highly recommend. The brisket was just average. Dry and not much flavor. The sides were good and filling.

Great BBQ and fast service. I eat there all the time. The ribs are fantastic. They have a variety of sauces to use and they are all delicious.

I live in the Conway area and I have eaten in the Whole Hog Cafe many times. If you are in the mood for Bar-b-Que this is where you need to go!

Really enjoyed the barbecue. It was cooked just right. The slaw and beans were good as well. I'm not a huge dessert fan, but the home made pecan pie was off the chain!

Whole Hog Cafe serves rather standard barbecue food. There isn't anything too special about the food at this restaurant. On the flip side, there isn't anything too bad either. The biggest advantage of this restaurant is that the service is super quick. By the time we found a table, our food was already done. In contrast to the overpricing that... More
