Doe's makes the best steak I've ever eaten. Their tamales aren't bad either.

I love the patio at Herman's. Good place to enjoy good food in a good environment.

AQ isn't what it used to be, but it still has a unique flavor I sometimes crave.

Marketplace has a good Cajun ribeye  and a cornucopia of other items. It will be quite a bit cheaper than Doe's Eat Place.

Foghorn 's uses fresh chicken, which makes for some good wings.

If you're looking for nightlife entertainment, I think you'll find Tangerine right up your ally. It's hard of me to think of that club without thinking of Bama fans.

There used to be a little burger chain...one location was at the light in Lowell on 71. They served sausageburgers. Ron's maybe? Are they still around?

Ron's Hamburgers and Chili. Just went there the other day. The sausageburger is awesome.

Moved to Bentonville.  They are good though. 

Ron's has a second location (in Arkansas; they are all over the Tulsa area, where they orginated), but still has the spot on business 71 in Lowell. 

http://www.ronschili.com/locations.php

I was introduced to this place while doing a lot of business in Tulsa around Y2K, and it is still my favorite of ALL burger joints I have ever eaten at.  Nothing fancy - but good, old fashioned type hamburgers off the grill with fresh french fries.  And the chili is under-rated, an excellent choice on a cold Arkansas afternoon/evening.  The 1/2 burger, 1/2 sausage is a treat as ell.  If you are in an "all-in" mood, have some chili and cheese on top of it.

I saw Jerry Jeff Walker, David Allan Coe and George Thorgood and many other great acts at the Swinging Door.

For the old timers, Swinging Door, The Library, Maxines, D-Lux and On The Corner were all great places.  Also, had good times at a bar called Omar's.

Zorro and the Blue Footballs were part of the classic 70's Fayetteville expericience.

Don't forget the "Rink"... I think it was the River City Street Band's favorite Fayetteville haunt......

Yep, witnessed many a dances, functions, and almost always, throw downs out there. I'm surprised anyone had a driver's license in that era, I'm glad it's changed.

Lots of great mentions in this thread.

One I haven't seen mentioned yet that is a great place to go is Farrell's Lounge Bar and Grill on Dickson. Farrell's is a Gastropub, so it's a chef driven menu, not your typical 'bar food'. They have a great selection of beer and the food is really good.

Kind of a dumb question, don't you think?

I went to kindergarten (my favorite grade - only went half a day and most of that was spent napping, snacking, or watching andy griffith reruns).

Anyhow this one boy was crying ever day.  He didn't want to be there.

One day the teacher, like the rest of us, had had enough. She said:

Stop crying.

He said:  I'm not crying, my eyes are watering.

She said:  If you'd stop crying, your eyes would stop watering.

He said:  I can't stop crying, my eyes are watering!

So don't try to confuse me with questions like this.  I've been dealing with circular logic since kindergarten.

Catfish Hole.....no alcohol, but good food.
Whole Hog BBQ
Herman's for a one-of-a-kind college town experience (don't let the exterior scare  you)
Hugo's for burgers
Doe's for steak......come hungry.  You will be right in the heart of the Dickson St. party district, too.

The chili cheese half ham half sausage burger is amazing. You have to use a fork to eat it. They dump the chili & cheese over the top of the whole burger until it's almost running over the lip of the plate.

If you are looking for good BBQ, then you will have to get it before you get to Northwest Arkansas.

Hog Pen BBQ   Conway

http://hogpenbbq.com/

Rivertowne BBQ   Ozark

http://rivertownebbq.com/

If you want a good hamburger in Fayetteville, the Backyard Burgers on College Avenue is a good choice.  Backyard Burgers utilizes high quality angus beef for their hamburgers.

If you want good home style cooking, the Cracker Barrel in Alma or the Cracker Barrel in Springdale is a good option.

Agree with those last two paragraphs whokeheartedly.   If i may I would like to add that for a good cup of chili to try Wendy's and for a good waffle I'd  say waffle house is a good option.

I'd park in the Dickson St. area, eat & water there.  Then walk up Dickson St and through the guts of campus (look for the old, tall,  red brick building with 2 matching towers and continue walking just to the left of that building) and you'll end up on the east side of the stadium, where the visitors' seats are.  It IS a walk, but a pretty walk.   Enjoy the miles of sidewalks on campus with the names of everyone who has ever gotten a degree at Arkansas.

Well I  live in DFW, and it arguably has some of the best BBQ in the country, but I would definitely put Bubbas in Eureka right up there with the DFW establishments....

I'm a big fan of Bordino's but I also love going to Herman's. Old school with a lot of memoribilia on the walls I know, but hard to beat. Haven't been there in years but I hear it is still great!

Didi you see Frank Broyles there the last time? Was he eating catfish?

And did you take any catfish from his plate and eat it?

On the East end of Dickson Street is Central United Methodist Church.  You can park there for free.  There is the lot and a four level parking garage. (Levels 1-3 are covered) Go early, make your way up Dickson St.  Lots of food and drink choices. Repeat the process on the way back to your car.  You'll also get a nice look at the campus heading up to the stadium.  Have a safe trip.

Moved to Bentonville.  They are good though.  Give Mr. Bs a try on the steak BTW.  I didn't mention it because there is no way a non local is going to find it without causing a wreck if they are going in the evening and it's dark.  You can't see it at night and they will be following their phone and slam on their brakes right in the middle of Walnut Ave in Rogers.  It's in an old house off of the road a bit.  It has a roadside sign that's easy to see in the day time, but it isn't well lit or brightly colored and the entrance is odd and small.  The steaks are completely worth the effort though.  It's very pricy and one of the few places in NWA I would put on par with any restaurant experience I've had in all of my travels and I've went to a lot of places.  Just got back from New Orleans which I would consider a foodies dream city.

I agree.  I'm glad you mentioned it.  I have spent the better part of my 45 years perfecting cooking a steak myself, so I rarely eat them when I go out to eat unless I'm traveling.  I got drug to Mr. B's once by some guys in town for business, and I couldn't believe how good it was.  It's where I take company when they come into town, and they're always impressed and want to go back next visit.

I actually agree in MR B's. I almost never eat steak when I go out because it rarely comes close to what I do at home.  Been a few years, but MR B's was really good last time I was there. 

I honestly still prefer my own, but will buy steak there anytime.  Reminds me of some of the Chi Town steak houses I like. Makes me wonder if they also incorporate a pan type boil in their prep.

The fact that you "always spelled it baloney" don't mean much with some context, Ron.  Can you give us more insight, professor?

If you don't cut slits in your baloney when you fry it, your baloney will curl up.

Places to visit

Crystal Bridges a world class art museum
Eureka Springs- a very unique town with great architecture that screams eclectic
Dickson Street
Mount Sequoyah- the view is great.
The Lodge on Whitney Mountain- the view is the best in the area
Fayetteville Square
Pinnacle
War Eagle Mill

I doubt Bama fans will visit anything with the name War Eagle in it.   ;)

Sitting outside at Sassy's at night is really fun with the lights and the trees overhead. I've never been disappointed with a meal there. BBQ Nachos, Pulled Pork, BBQ Chicken, Ribs, etc. Great flavor to all of it.

This is what I don't get. I've never really found any BBQ that I thought was BAD (outside of like fast food joints, Corkys, and a certain place who doesn't remove the membranes on their ribs). I certainly prefer some BBQs to others, but BBQ is kind of like sex. Any BBQ is better than no BBQ.

I frequent a Kansas City Chiefs board. And those guys are ridiculous when discussing BBQ. They try to act like there's no such thing as good BBQ from Texas or Carolina or any other region outside of KC tradition. It's silly. They talk as if Texas BBQ makes them throw up.

To me, there's plenty of room in my heart to like most of the different BBQ traditions and to appreciate most BBQ provided it's edible.

I couldn't agree more.  One of my favorite BBQ places is in Austin TX (I can't believe I wrote that but it's true) and specializes in beef BBQ. I read an article in a Food magazine once about BBQ and it's differences. Having been in the restaurant business in the past I believe it was spot on in it's evaluation. It said there were 5 different BASIC styles or types of BBQ based around certain regions and then numerous variations or subcategories of those. There is ONE overall criteria for all and that is slow cooking on indirect heat. One difference was what type of meat. Another was what type of heat source (though it must be indirect). Another was wet or dry and what spices. The biggest difference by far was style and/or flavor of sauce.

For your sake I hope you know more about football than barbecue.

You talking about Columbiamex which is now known as Burrito Loco?

I'm really into Mangos lately, which is purely a drive through. Their tortas are off the hook.

I doubt Bama fans will visit anything with the name War Eagle in it.   ;)

What about a crap fair?

Never heard such hogwarsh in my life.  You must not have a very sensitive pallet is all I got to say about that.
My pallet is refined and has hardly any busted spars poking off it.
