REVIEWS OF Hog Pen BBQ IN Arkansas

T. Bunting

OMGoodness. Y'all need to drive straight past those other BBQ places and come here! The pork and beef melt in your mouth. The smoked boudin sandwich was superb especially for someone who's not from Louisana making it! The owner was on site and working just as hard as the waitress, he was very friendly and actually sat down to talk to every table. We will be returning!

Great BBQ

Blanche Akhtab

Amazing food, great customer service, friendly staff, awesome music, and reasonable prices. The beef brisket was so delicious! It was so tender, I couldn't even pick it up with a fork. I love it and will definitely come back and bring my family.

Heather Bluemoon

We got a carry out order of bbq beef sandwiches with the baked potato salad and two fried okra sides. They were delicious. The okra orders were larger than expected. The baked potato salad was like a baked potato with the works. Very unusual. We'll definitely be regular customers.

Teresa Dick

Not a fan

Brandy Pratt

The food is amazing! The Waitresses are very nice and polite! The owner always comes around and make sure that everything is okay that everything is done to YOUR liking! A very polite and happy atmosphere. I love this place recommending it to everyone!

Tena Collins

Beverly Brown

Amanda Henderson

Good..but a bit overpriced.

Josh Davis

Hard to find consistently good bbq...Hog Pen is always very good

Keith Rogers

Good food but cash only and limited hours

Theresa Beck

Always awesome and friendly

Neil Greathouse

The ribs at Hog Pen are the best I've had in the country. Not just in Conway...the country! Compared even to Memphis ribs & their many BBQ places - these fall off the bone & without all the sauce. Great dry rub. And you should definitely try the twice cooked chicken - not dry & full of flavor!

mike cash

Super friendly people excellent food will definitely be back if you love BBQ this is for you

Mike Thomas

Incredible food: pork rinds appetizer, dry rib platter with potato salad, baked beans, and hush puppies (with honey for dipping). My wife and I split the meal and still had leftovers. A family owned/run joint with tremendous southern hospitality. Loved it!

Cindy Whorton

Awesome food & great service!

Stephen Carmona

This is a family style, neighborhood restaurant. I had a fantastic overall experience. I Was there on a summer weeknight at 5:30 pm. The restaurant was busy but well managed. I received a friendly greeting when I entered from Simone my waitress. Drink promptly offered and brought, menu explained. I had, fried pork skin, 2 large pulled pork sandwiches, half a slab of ribs, and coleslaw. I like the character of the BBQ. It was smokey and tender. The sauce was very good as well. I like a little more heat but had no complaints. When I was paying the owner (former service member from the picture out front) was asked how I enjoyed the meal. Very friendly... Good thing I don't live close by...I wouldn't fit in my car.

Aaron Benzing

Nate Horwitz-Willis

I came back to visit my old stomping grounds from Oakland, CA and tool my girlfriend here. We eat red meat once a week so I wanted to bring her to one of the best places to eat BBQ in the southern US. This place was amazing! The sliced beef sandwich and chopped beef dinner with potato salad, cole slaw, and fried okra are world class items on the menu. This is a definite cosmopolitan travelers choice eatery. Bon a petite!

Toya Samuels

Great food and great service

janet collum

Best bbq around. Call in and take out is best option. Excellent catfish too.

Jeff Hartman

Stopped for dinner while traveling through and I don't think you will find a better place. The food was outstanding. They gave both of us a free rib since it was our first time there. The portions were large and the price was right. I even spoke to the owner who might be one of the nicest guys I ever met. You need to stop here !!

Haley Shultz

Great food and service! Must try the ribs!!

I absolutely love this food!! The potato salad is the best I've ever had and the pulled pork is fantastic!!!!! Only problem is the hours..we came in at 745 on a Sat night and had to go downtown. I wish they would stay open till at least 9! Keep up the great work

Scott Newell

All the food here is excellent but the twice cooked chicken is simply amazing! One of the best dishes I've ever had. If you love bbq make the trip to Conway to give this a try!


BBQ is average at best, service is bad and prices are pretty high. Been there twice and service was bad both times.

George Byram

Ribs were good, but the atmosphere is a bit dim and unappealing.

Donna Flanagan

We loved it! The food was wonderful, the atmosphere, furniture, and blues playing in the background was very relaxing. Everything was good: the waitress did a good job, the restaurant was spotless. And the owner was the best part...he came by our table to chat for several minutes and even thanked us for stopping by. We are already looking forward to going back next time we're in Conway!!

Matthew Woodruff

Always good food, awesome people.

Suzan Bailey

Eating Bar-B-Que in Conway? This is the place to come! The food is delicious and the staff is wonderful!

John Newberry

THE BEST BBQ in town. Ribs are cooked perfectly. Lots of smoke and flavor. Twice cooked chicken is amazing!!

LaTatyana Toney

Food is Always Great! Pulled Pork Bar-B-Q Sandwich is my favorite! The Service is Always Great!

David Warmoth

Best ever!

Jay Bird

Excellent BBQ, and the homemade desserts are outstanding. If you know you're going there for lunch and have a particular dessert you'd like to have, give Ms. Forte a call around 8:00-8:30 and let her know. Desserts are by customer request each day. I would STRONGLY suggest the chocolate cake!

Troy Swafford

Conwaysians might argue about the best in town but for my money this is it! I like to smoke my own meat but these Hog Pen ribs are hard to beat.

Jacob Floyd

Their hours aren't the best, but if you can catch them, it's hands down the best BBQ in Central Arkansas.

R. Pauly

Man, oh man do these folks do BBQ right!!! You know it is going to be good when you get out of the car and smell that wood smoke and...well, I just can't quite describe it. The pulled pork is delicious but if you want a little taste of heaven, the ribs are are where it is at.

joe wendell

Best BBQ in Conway. Try boudain or riblets!

Niko Kolettis

I had the rib/ribblet dinner with baked beans and potato salad. My wife had the catfish and rib dinner with slaw and sweet potato fries. Everything was absolutely delicious. I don't know how I've lived in Conway for 10 years and never been here. Seriously, go right now. Oh, and did I mention we also had the best chocolate cake that either of us have had in our lives!! 5 stars because it won't allow me to give more.

William Lampkin

Great BBQ

Carolyn James

Superlicious!! I recently had oral surgery which makes eating extremely difficult. I didnt have any trouble eating the food at HPB. The fish is flaky, ribs so tender I ate them with a fork. Affordable delicious down home cooking served at a reasonable wait time. And, customer service is superb!

Patti Heath

The food here is delicious! Great service and excellent food. Highly recommend!

Dawn Clevenger

First time customer today and WOW I was blown away!! I've ate a lot of BBQ in Texas, but this was hands down my favorite. I usually don't prefer chicken, but after eating a bite of my husbands, I couldn't keep my hands off his plate. The ribs were also so soft they fell right off the bone. Staff is very friendly and the owner personally came to speak to each table to ensure everything was great. We will definitely stop here again!

andrea fairmon

The best bbq hands down!! I met the owner while I was at work one night and he said to come check him out, so I finally got around to it and I was FAR from disappointed! Had the pulled pork sandwich and it was everything you could want! Tender meat, great sauce topped with a nice soft bun! It doesn't get any better! Definitely check them out because they are doing bbq in all the right ways!

pc cp

Burnt and I ordered shorty ends and they gave me about a rib and a half cut up for $12 almost choked me to death that's a shame that people out here serving that garbage food

Stanley williams

Best BBQ around! The staff is super Friendly and care about your personal experience.

Brady Rice

Just wandered into this place to get some take out. Pulled pork and coleslaw are awesome! Can’t wait to get back for some brisket!

A Maxfield

Good food!!

Ivan Fjeldsted

This place is a rarity, a true hole-in-the-wall in the same building as a tobacco shop, run by black women that don't mess around when it comes to BBQ. It's some of the best food I've had since I moved to Arkansas. You can order pulled pork by the pound and they also cater. The restaurant is really tiny, but you'll never hear me complain about the food. Definitely the best BBQ in Faulkner County.

Robert Wheeler

Great service great food

Jesse White

Food tasted decent but I didn't feel good for a few days after eating there. Staff are less than gracious, not your typical southern hospitality.

Brad Owren


Gary Palmer

Carla Brown-Kennard

Food good and generous helpings. Had pulled pork, good sauce. Daughter had cheeseburger, it was juicy and the special sauce really good and big. Older lady wait staff bossy and seemed angry, told me what I would have, and argued with walk in patron, he almost left, he commented as she went to place his order, "if the food was not good, i would have just left"

Wilma Parks

Awesome Bbq

Jay Pratt

The first time I had the ribs and my wife had fish. It was very good. We have been back regularly. We have tried most everything. It is all very good.

brenda bishop

My two beautiful sister in laws come and visit from South of Pine Bluff and they have to have Hog Pen BBQ. We all love the ribs and sandwiches and all the trimmings !! Good eating Hog Pen BBQ. Oh the service was spectacular.

Blake Roussel

Wife and I decided to go to hog pen for lunch. It has been years since I have last eaten here. We both ordered the pork lunch plate. I had the potato salad and hushpuppies with mine and the wife has fried okra and baked beans. All four sides had great flavor and the pork was good. They only had once sauce option which was good but I wish they had a spicy option available on the table. We also had a smoked boudin link which had great spice in it. Over all we had a great lunch. Only thing that threw me for curve ball was they only accept cash or checks. We were lucky that my wife had some cash on her at the time.

Wayne Lunsford

My favorite barbecue joint anywhere in the area. Smoked and pulled pork or beef, tasty ribs, boudin sausage, fresh pork skins. Prices are reasonable and the staff is friendly and helpful. They don't take credit cards, so be sure to bring cash or check. Oh yeah, and don't forget your appetite!

Wayne Presley

Family run, dry rub ribs very tender with just a little snap left, twice cooked chicken is smoked then fried and is delicious. Most importantly Mrs Mavis is putting her foot in those peach fried pies.
