Sam's club in Bentonville off Highway off of 102/62/SE 14th/W Hudson Road has a great meat market including Wagyu steaks.  That may completely eliminate the need to eat steaks in a restaurant.

They have Wagyu? Sounds like I need to stop by there the next time I'm up that way.

For those near a Costco, it too has solid wagyu offerings.  Just wish my wife didn't like it cooked medium well.   >:(

It has taken nearly two decades, but I have stubbornly got my wife from well to medium. One of my finest achievements.

Save the money and get them a cheap rib eye if they like it well, they wouldn't notice the difference.

That'd be a solid idea if she wasn't the one making the purchases.  I need to be more proactive by getting the steaks, but she usually texts me to say "I've got steaks for us tonight."  (sigh)

My Mom used to order a filet well done at fine steakhouses.
Watching those charred and half burnt steaks made me start eating mine medium rare.

Just make sure to get the wagyu.

I've ordered some from Snake River Farms once before .  It was a ribeye filet.  It was pretty damn good.

I just can't do a 200 dollar brisket.  I'd screw that up for sure.

The last one i did was good, but over rendered. It stayed in the cooler too long. I think the trick is to do a whole packer, get it to 203*, then wrap in butcher paper for an hour (Aaron Franklin style). It probably would've been perfect. I was at least happy that the flat wasn't dry and the point was rendered down.

I paid $40 for it at Harp's in Conway.

Yeah, I can do pretty good usually.  I just can't chance a 200 dollar mistake.  Just too inconsistent.

IMO best steak I've had in the area is a little place in Gravel Ridge called Ropers. They do a great job of seasoning their steaks and the ribeye is cooked as close to perfection as you can get.

How along was that?  I have heard the same thing and I tried it about a year ago, it was what I assume one of those new applebee's 10 dollar steaks taste like.

Try Max's Sports Bar in the South Main Arts District....One of the patrons told me that they draw a good crowd to the game because the owner is an alum.  It was raucous last year when I was there!  Of course, that was the Auburn OT game! :razorback:

There are plenty of places shortly after you cross the county line going to Shreveport.

The novelty is pretty cool, but I've never been impressed by the quality of the drinks.
