Why don't you come up 287 to Wichita Falls then hit 44 through OKC then 40/540into Arkansas.
I believe it's quicker the other way.

Pete's Place in Krebs is definitely the right call.

There is a really good steak house in McAlister downtown, can't think of the name but it's damn good. 
 The Western Sizzle in front of Lowes and Walmart ain't bad for a quick steak.
 Pete's Place is good Italian but not like Tonitown's Mary M's or Momma Z's.
 Phil's in Westville is good and a senic drive.

From Dallas, go up 287 to Amarillo and eat a 72 oz. steak at The Big Texan. Then stay on I-40 until you get to 540, then go north 50 miles. You will need to leave tonight if you are going to make it.

when i lived in fort worth, i hated having to drive to springdale.  McCalister is a good place to stop for gas and some sort of food.  When the little one was young we used to stop at the sizzler, it had a sanitary bathroom.

other than that drive, drive, drive.  in salisaw the old south restaurant isn't that bad at all.

good luck.  watch the towns between atoka and mccalister.  The po po has unmarked cars.

Chili's in Mcalester is the mid way point of the drive and the only decent thing. If you don't eat in Mcalester then you will have to wait till you get to Fort Smith. I feel sorry for you because I make that drive about 10 times a year and it sucks.

you are from Dallas and are driving to Fayetteville to a game ?   you should do like many other's on here while discussing the A&M game at Dallas, bitch about the cost of the tickets, gas and lodging then proceed to tell everyone that you are going to sit on your big, fat ass and watch the game on your 62 " Flat screen TV and eat nachos and drink warm Old Milwaukee's Best

Pete's Place in Krebs, near McAlester.  A bit off of the highway but very worthy Italian. Sit-down style, so be forewarned.

We drive from the 'nam' to Dallas about 4 times a year.  We leave around 9, eat along the way but always fast food.  Haven't ever found anything worth stopping for, better food at the final destination either coming or going.

You take 75/69 to 40 to 540. And I'm promising you're better off packing some sandwiches. Eat once you get to Dickson.

Sadly, this is absolutely correct.  I have made that trip dozens of times in the past 10-15 years, and I've yet to find any place worth stopping for. 

On some occasions - if I'm coming up very early for an afternoon game same day, I'll stop at one of the fast food joints for a quick breakfast (croissandwich, McMuffin, etc.) but other than that, this is about the lousiest stretch of highway - for that long - that I can remember driving. 

Guess that's the price one pays for driving primarily through Oklahoma.

South of Sallisaw on US 59 about 4 miles is a bbq joint at the first curve (to the right) - believe it's called the Wild (maybe Crazy) Horse.  On your left.


Wonderful ribs.

Yes, Wild Horse BBQ in Sallisaw is good. I live 20 miles from it and we drive there to get it. Some guy flies all the way from Dallas once a week to eat there. It's good..

Didn't know there was a Chili's in Mcalister. Best thing to do is eat before you leave or eat in Ft. Smith or Fayetteville when you get here unless you like fast food.  Western Sizzlin is not bad in Mcalister.

Get a ribeye at the Giacomo's in McAlister, OK.  It's awesome and about as big as a dinner plate.  It's located right on Hwy 69 across from Walmart shopping center.  Great Italian food served in an early 80's decor.  They serve like a whole meal before your steak is even served.  Spaghetti, meatballs, salad, anti-pasta plate, gnocci, and ravioli, all homemade and served family style!  Also they have the best lamb fries (don't knock it til you've tried it.) A REAL Italian restaurant!   Fo Shizzle!

Its actually a Carl Jr's, not a Hardee's.  The food in McAlester - at least the fast food - is really, really good for some reason.  I must have something to do with it being one of the meth strongholds in the US.  I know that meth-heads will do some crazy stuff, like stay up for 3 days straight cleaning everything in sight.  I guess they apply that same dedication to preparing their food, and it really does show.

That's just funny. Really, really funny. I can just see some tweaked-out meth freak providing some extra TLC to an order of chicken strips.

It is, but it isn't called Phil's anymore.  I was up that way the other day and it is called something else now.  I can remember what but it had "Saloon" in the name.

I used to be a Phil's regular.  One time a guy got knifed in the stall while I was standing at the urinal.  Another time I came back from the bathroom to find my girlfriend in a knock down drag out fight with another chick.  Good times!

Pho Vietnam in Fort Smith. It looks like a gas station, but is actually amazing vietnamese food. If it is still there, that is.

Art's BBQ is good too (again, if it is still there... I haven't been around Arkansas in a while).


If you're in the Ft Smith area I suggest trying the Pink Flamingo for the best BBQ around.

I also second Pho Vietnam if you're in the mood for Vietnamese.

I don't know about resturants.  We stop at the Loves in Atoka, but wacth for the law by the fruit stand in Tushka.  If he isn't sitting there, he has someone stopped somewhere.
I'm making the drive from Big D to Fayetteville tomorrow night and was just wondering if there are any hidden restaurants along that drive.
