South Park Restaurant

Reviewed By colesmom6694 - Bentonville, Arkansas

Yes it is a truck stop but don't let that stop you from trying this place.
It's your typical southern truck stop food so it's nothing fancy but it's always good. They have large portions and the price is very reasonable.
I usually get breakfast when I go but I have ordered chicken and hamburgers there and they were just as good.
Their pies and cakes are made fresh and are always worth saving room for.
Nancy is the best server there and she may be what makes the experience as enjoyable as it is.

These guys are open early, and the have the best blueberry cake donuts around. They also have really good sausage, egg, and cheese croisants! It's a great place to swing by on the way to the deer woods.

The Cake House Bakery

Reviewed By cfrhinehart - Scranton, Arkansas

Debra and her gang know how to satisfy a sweet tooth! From delicious cupcakes of every kind to pies, cookies, and cakes, the Cake House Bakery is a true gem. Lunch is also available, so be sure to try the meatloaf, chicken and dressing, catfish, or whatever the special is! If Debra has the white raspberry cupcakes or lemon/blueberry ones, pick up a dozen or so! They are heavenly!

Fat Dawgz BBQ

Reviewed By Gorj - Lamar

Just had dinner at Fat Dawz BBQ and although the food tasted OK, the place really needs a good cleaning. The tables were sticky. The salt and pepper shakers were dirty on top and sticky when you picked them up. We felt like, lets just eat and get out of here.

Fox & Fork

Reviewed By patticakesTemple_TX - Jonesboro, Arkansas

We ordered the appetizer plate which included goat cheese with honey, hummus, and pimento cheese with balsamic. Toasted warm breads accompanying it made for a meal within itself. Definitely something to share with a few people.

For dinner we had the Publican Chicken for two. It’s a whole chicken with amazing spices atop a bed of pepper fries. Very good flavor but we couldn’t eat all that either! The chef suggested a glass of wine I enjoyed with my meal.

This is a quirky fun little place. We were seated next to the stage and had an older gentleman play the Nutcracker pieces and some Chopin on the piano.

Crosswoods

Reviewed By patticakesTemple_TX - Jonesboro, Arkansas

Came here on the recommendation of the hotel we stayed at. Several cars in the parking lot but looked a little sketchy from the outside. We were welcomed by locals and the place was packed.

The place was rather dark with intense lamps. The staff was very friendly. I was called baby, honey, and sweetie multiple times by my waitress several decades younger than me.

Burgers were hand made and amazing. Price of $6.00 included more fries, tots or onion rings than you can imagine. Also had the Tornados made with chicken breast; bacon; cheese and jalapeño. Great with the spicy ranch. Wine was $3.00 a glass and they filled mu huge goblet full!

Oark Burger Company

Reviewed By TravelinWIGal - Saint Louis, Missouri

Thank you to previous trip advisor reviews. I wanted a good local burger and found it, inside the convenience store of Motion Fuels. There is seating inside and they also an outdoor patio with a pergola and picnic tables. I wanted a beer and since neither the C store or Oark sold beer I grabbed out of my cooler and enjoyed their burger and onion rings in the sun. The service was fast and super nice. Also had homemade pies, save room for dessert.

La Chiquita

Prices were good and beer was relaxing at this restaurant, next door to our hotel in Clarksville, AR. It was actually close enough to walk, but we didn't see it from the opposite side of the hotel.

The shrimp Alambras is served on a sizzling platter like fajitas but is just shrimp, onions, bacon & cheese. It also comes with tortillas. I'm telling you, it's heaven on a sizzling silver platter :) They also serve free salsa & chips.
