We went with Sassy's Red House - good brisket!

Thanks for coming in! Glad you enjoyed it!

I go to Sam's just for the hot dogs and some locations have a polish sausage! The pepperoni pizza is pretty good, the others are just ehh to me! I go for the hot dogs, top quality, huge beef hot dog! Nice amount of garlic, don't really want to ride with me for a distance if I get the cherry coke or Dr. Pepper to go with it! ;D

Sir it does seem like it would be a honor to ride around eating SAMs club snacks with you but I believe I'll pass and hope you're not offended by my turning down your offer.  Your warning of your gassiness should deter all but the loneliest folks here and going on a road trip with you.

There's usually one of these threads when other fans are coming to town.

I have to say anybody sassing Sassy's or Neal's either just got an unlucky experience or they have an odd palette.

Haven't seen the switch in Johnson mentioned, they have a nice breakfast.

The stone mill on Gregg is great for lunch

I only seen cafe rue orleans mentioned once which belies its awesomeness.

Once you try Monte Ne Inn, you will wonder why you ever thought AQ was even edible.

Since I've taken you up north, you might as well give Mr. Bs a try.

I love Smokin Joe's for BBQ as well.



I only go to chain restaurants when I'm running short on time.  Eating local allows you to experience local people that care about their product rather than getting frozen food shipped in from OKC or Memphis distributors.  Not a weekend thing, but the best lunch in NWA is in Gentry at the Wooden Spoon.  Deniers just haven't tried their pie.  Sams does have the best hot dogs in town.  If you want good chain pizza, don't rule out Caseys General Store.

Solid list for the most part but if you don't mind I will just skip the gas station pizza if you don't mind.

There a place in charleston (35 minutes from Fayetteville, just like eureka springs but south) called king's fried rice that is a real treasure.  An old gas station, king's has the freshest sushi and best spring rolls I ever eat.  A feller can get hisself a half dozen spring rolls, a bowl of hot and sour soup, and a platter of thrice cooked pork with vegetables and fried rice for 9.99 and I guarantee you'll have enough leftovers for a full meal the next day.  Even Odell says it's a bargain.  Jack blasingame, too.

There was a surprisingly long time before Foghorns was mentioned... Thought it was a pre-game favorite?

Foghorns is great with 3 locations and a 4th coming in Benton County.  A local guy serving great food to local people.  All the money stays in Arkansas.

Ironic you mention not wanting farm raised fish or seafood YET you mention BEEF and several places where that is the main thing on the menu!

You need an education if you don't know the difference.  I'll gladly eat American feed lot beef over Indonesian pen raised fish.

I'm really not trying to derail or change the topic, but good food starts with good ingredients.  Otherwise we'd all ask for directions to McDonalds.  I rarely eat out, but when I do I want good food.  I eat seafood at home 2 or 3 meals a week, but only eat out seafood monthly.  I eat almost no beef at home, and go out for a good steak every 3 or 4 months.  If people were able to see where a lot of their food came from, they'd never eat it.  Seeing some of our food supply in foreign countries really opens your eyes to what you are eating.

OK. We ate at Farmers Table again for lunch yesterday. We were very disappointed. ALL our cooked food was cold and not as fresh as it should have been. Service was inattentive. We have come to the conclusion it is good there for breakfast only. Won't be back for lunch.

Sure I know the difference. You aren't the only one that has eaten all over the world. But that's not what matters. I'll certainly agree with your last two sentences.

Nah, just is at Doe's. I'm just a regular guy like everyone else, I eat $1 sausage biscuits at Mikey D's every morning for breakfast. I don't mind spending money for something good, we all make our choices.

Houston Nutt used to swear by the room service breakfast at the Springdale Holiday Inn.
That was when Nutt got his extension (to his contract) and was feeling flush.
Usually he was feeding quarters into the Magic Fingers vibrating beds at the Chief Motel so fast it messed him up.

Where in Benton County? I love Foghorns but I usually only go when I'm in Fayetteville for a game or something. I-49 construction is a nightmare.

Even though there are several locations around the state, I cant believe nobody has mentioned Gusanos Pizza on Weddington. We go there religiously on game day. Order one of the chicago style pizzas. We always get the 12" Grubs Choice.

Ricks Bakery for dessert!!

Spot on for Ricks.

I've actually been to Chicago several times.  That's why I didn't mention Gusanos.  They are acceptable, but not worth a mention in this thread.  Tims and Zs do a great pie in the local tradition.  Gusanos does a halfway decent Chicago style pie.  I do go there because they do have the best Chicago style in the area, but it is not great.  It seems like they are missing at least one layer every time I go.  I have never seen the topping to the top of the crust like you ALWAYS get at any decent pizza joint in the City.

There are some more places around the square.

Haven't tried it but I've heard Farmers Table is good.


Back in 1969, when we lived in Fayetteville, we went to Penguin Ed's.  Really liked it.  Went to Homecoming this year and was happy to find that Penguin Ed's hasn't changed.  Gotten a little bigger but same great BBQ.

When hungry in Knoxville, The Dash recommends a visit to the reliably awesome Calhoun’s On The River (40). The place is mobbed on gameday, so plan accordingly. Try the brisket, try the ribs, try any meat you like. And try an Appalachian Pale Ale from Smoky Mountain Brewery with all that meat...

Hugo's is outstanding for burgers, sandwiches and soup.  It is a very unique setting, in the basement of a building.  Not accessible to people in wheelchairs, unfortunately.

Crabby's in Rogers is one of my favorites in NW Arkansas.  Mostly seafood but some chicken and I believe some beef dishes.

Mermaids is excellent, but expect to pay through the nose.  Unlike some other posters, I like Powerhouse. 

I like Marketplace Grill in Springdale.  It has higher end food but no alcohol.  There's was a big wait on War Eagle weekend.  The Marketplace Grill in Springdale is better than the ones in Conway and Little Rock, IMHO.  However, the Little Rock location has a bar.

Sassy's has good barbeque and burgers.

Max's in the South Main district (GE Patterson).  Near the train station, Arcade, etc.
Max is an Arkansas graduate.
Less than a mile to the FedEx Forum.
(Double J across the street has a shuttle if you go there, too).
Max's is the place to go for you.
Lot's of other bars and restaurants in the neighborhood.
Actually an easy walk to the Forum if you're inclined.
AND....it's VERY safe. You're not going to get shot!

I guess the holiday hours different for all of them.
I'll keep checking for you.
Heck, the Blue Monkey just up the street on Front St will have.
