This place consistently is the same every time I visit. Great food, great service, great prices. I like smokey flavored BBQ and this place delivers since they smoke their own meat daily. My favorite is the smoked chicken. Riblets are also a great appetizer. The owner usually will come around to joke and check on you to make sure everything... More

The ribs are wonderfully smoked, tender and delicious! Enjoy the pork rinds served as an invitation to begin eating! The Cole Slaw provides a nice balance to the BBQ!

Travel Baseball takes us to many places in the Midwest. Hog Pen BBQ will stand up against anything in Kansas City! The friendly service is just an added bonus of this wonderful spot! We make it a point to eat here anytime we are in the Conway/Little Rock area. You should too!

For BBQ and Fish this is a great place. The slaw and beans are pretty good as well. Smoked chicken is to die for! If you are looking for something sweet, I especially like the fried pies.

After reading the reviews, we were set on ordering the ribs. Well, they did not disappoint! They were very meaty, and so tender, they just practically melt in your mouth. The fries are excellent! And the complimentary pork skins were a nice surprise! Travelers, there's only one bathroom for men and women to share.

After seeing Hog Pen BBQ featured on "Exploring Arkansas" we knew we had to stop in next time we were in Conway to try this mouthwatering BBQ. We stopped in and it was one of the best meals we have ever had at a restaurant. The waitresses were friendly and the owner made you feel like you were a long... More

While traveling from MA to AZ we asked the hotel clerk where to get great southern barbecue. The Hog Pen hides behind a drive through tobacco store(!) and is tricky to find - but be sure to go looking. It is a small, family owned place with superb food. I had the catfish and ribs dinner. Never having had catfish,... More
