When I do visit KFC in West Helena the chicken is always hot and fresh but I will say the customer service isn't that good. Other than that I have no complaints.

In its previous life, this restaurant was a decent Chinese buffet. Under new management and ownership, however, it has really taken a turn for the better. In addition to new personnel, Old Town has new equipment and an upgraded menu. They now include some sushi (!!!) in their buffet offering, and the food is always hot. For those looking for some southern comfort food, they even have fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and the like.

So I've been on vacation for five days now driving across Alabama the "food state" or so I had read and I end up in Arkansas thinking that I am not interested in eating any more southern food because it's not at all what I have imagined. I went to culinary school and learned to cook quintessential "southern food", I watch movies and see "home cookin", Ive talked to guests at the shop who say "I miss my comfort food" and that's what I expected I would have eaten this whole week and was about to give up.We went in and it was pretty much what we expected from a southern restaurant, regular people eating lunch before heading back to work. Except this place had a twist southern food and Chinese food. Under one roof. I was instantly worried that my experience would be the same as the rest but when my mashed potatoes and fried okra arrived with my dumplings on the side with a golden cornbread muffin, I thought, "this is what I've been looking for, now I just might be able to relate to "comfort food" stories" and I was right. From the service to the sweet tea to the friendly fond farewell I felt like I was in the south and hat I belonged there. Even though my wife and I stick out everywhere we go except San Francisco and New Orleans. If you are in the area don't listen to anyone else or the hype surrounding much more touted restaurants in the area this is the place to go for lunch in he Helena twin cities area.

This was my first experience with a food truck, and I enjoyed every moment of working with Jerry. We were with a tour group, and set up a private lunch. The food he provided was well received by all, and he was accommodating for a few persons who arrived near the end of the lunch hours we set up. Would eat here again with no hesitation.

We were looking for a place to eat breakfast, but they don't serve breakfast so we order lunch instead, my husband had fish, shrimp, fries and coleslaw and it was good. We also love the fact that there is a pool table. A place in town with a pool table and food this is awesome and definitely worth our time.

Food is well prepared and reasonably priced. Service is friendly and chatty.. My wife and I can recommend the French dip,any hamburger, Bubba's Cobb salad, and the jalapeno poppers. Others we talked to, raved about the 8 oz. filet. We chose to eat dinner here twice during out exploration of the blues trail.Thank you for taking the time to review us!
