Brown's Country Kitchen in Benton.
http://brownscountryrestaurant.com/about/

Unfortunately, Brown's hasn't served breakfast in several years.  I would have chimed in already.  For those of you that have had Shoney's buffet for breakfast, it was actually bigger and better.  I absolutely hated losing breakfast from that place.  It was fantastic.

This for the oldtimers  on here - just curious whether anyone remembers Owens Country Kitchen - corner of Chester and 7th.
The best breakfast I've ever had in my 50+ years.
Ham w/ redeye gravy, fried eggs over medium, bisquits. It was so good I can still taste it all these years later.
Hard to find any redeye gravy now a days.

Needing some insight on the best bang for the buck. We will have several hungry mouths to feed the morning of Toledo game. We are looking for rrecommendations for either a restaurant style or hotel buffet. Any help will be appreciated!

WPS!

My suggestion would be to stay at the Embassy Suites Hotel on Financial Parkway. They have a wonderful full breakfast buffet and they have an area where they do pancakes and eggs cooked to order. It comes with the suite, there is no extra charge. They have an inside secure parking area too.

I think I Know where you're talking about. Me and the wife ate there once. I can still taste those cathead biscuits with muscadine jelly.
Seems like it was called DeWayne's or something. That ring a bell? Maybe it was Blue's?

It's something like that. I can't find the name right now.  I'll just refer to it as "Cathead's" from this point forward.

They do have that muscadine jelly but I always slather my biscuits in gravy and throw pepper on it like ticks on a stray dog.

The fried taters with onions and cheese are the featured item there, though.  That is why I keep going back and that is why half the board is all wrapped up in this thread I would guess. Those who have eaten there can attest to their wholesome goodness. 

It's got a two word name it seems like.  It is driving me crazy that I can't remember.

Delta's living in the past.  He usually posts stuff about JR's ribs, Tia's, and Blue Mesa Grill, other defunct restaurants.  Don't pay any attention to him when it comes to eating joints. Do pay attention to most of his other stuff. He's spot on about sports.

Wherever you end up, you will be able to tell if the food is good or not by "averaging" the weights of the other customers. If they average out to about what our average OL player looks like, then the food is good. or you could drive to Conway, and eat at Stobys.

Maybe you're thinking of Delicious Temptations. That's my wife's favorite spot. Great omelettes and pancakes

If you were a SAVE10 member you could've looked it up in your App, pressed the map it button to find it AND get 10% off.

Homers is on there too.

Homer's is the name of the place. East Roosevelt before the airport.  Also Homer's West on Rodney Parham.

Stopped in there for a snack before catching an early plane. Ordered coconut pie and then saw a cheese dip headed to someone else. So, I added cheese dip to my order. The funny waitress called it a breakfast for champions.

 This was the original plan but when we called we were told there is a 2 night minimum. We have always enjoyed the Embassy in hot springs.
