First timers get a sample of ribs, free. Two couples, we tried the ribs, fish, chicken, and chopped beef. Everything was fantastic!! Service was fast and very friendly. Ribs were smokey and very tender. Great place to eat if you're close to Conway!!

Found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. This is the best find! If you are in the area, this is a must stop! Family owned restaurant, all very nice people. The BBQ is delicious, definitely save room for dessert! They have a homemade strawberry cake that is like nothing you have ever tasted before!

My husband and I enjoyed wonderful barbecue once again at Hog Pen! The ribs were perfect: juicy, smoky goodness complimented by a "just right" barbecue sauce. I like my ribs with cole slaw and theirs is perfect- crisp, clean, not sweet and not full of mayonnaise, with just the right level of vinegar to balance the richness of the ribs.... More

The barbecue is awesome, especially the riblets. I do recommend that you try the catfish. It's fried as you order so it's hot and crispy when delivered to the table. Don't forget to order a fried pie - delicious !

A friend and I have a bit of an addiction for bbq. When we discover we have the same day off, you can often find us touring the backroads of Arkansas in a 46 Chevy truck, looking for 'q, and ribs are our go-to. And if one of us get by Hogpen without the other, you can count on a... More

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.
