Most Popular Restaurants in Brinkley

April 14, 2018 Alida England

Brinkley is the most populous city in Monroe County, Arkansas, United States. Located within the Arkansas Delta, Brinkley was founded as a railroad town in 1872. The city has historically been a transportation and agricultural center in the region, more recently developing a reputation for outdoors recreation and the ivory-billed woodpecker. Birding has become important to the city and region following the discovery of the ivory-billed woodpecker in 2004, a species thought to be extinct 60 years earlier. Located halfway between Little Rock and Memphis, Tennessee, the city has used the slogan "We'll Meet You Half-Way" in some of its advertising campaigns. The population was 3,188 at the 2010 census.

This is your average Baskin -Robbins. I do have a complaint, The lady who fixed our pint of ice cream did not pack it at all. She just scooped it out and placed it in the container and gave it to us. She did not pack it nor weigh it. We felt like we got cheated when it came to our ice cream. For the price that you pay for baskin and robbins, they should have no problem packing it!!!

Rolling through Ark on I-40 we followed the lead on TA and found this "hole in the wall" gem.. Everything here was great!! The salad, soup, Rueben was TERRIFIC!! Save room for the homemade cake.. and you best order it early... they go fast. Don't pass on this place and don't let the outside deceive you.. inside is pure (gold) food!! Service is a 10+ as well..

I seek out local restaurants when traveling long distances via interstate highway. After exiting, I drove right by this place (see title). The folks at the gas station (the 1 with the fried chicken franchise) on the other side of the interstate pointed me in the right direction.

I was seeking catfish & this place delivered.

3 large, excellently prepared fillets with slaw, hushpuppies & choice of potato for less than $9.

Spartan dining area inside a C-store with friendly service.

Will try the BBQ on my next journey.

Los Pinos

Reviewed By Brad E - Amarillo, Texas

Came here late one afternoon for lunch and pleasantly surprised. The waiter was quick and attentive, and even though we were there a few minutes after "lunch" pricing, he still gave us our meal and the lunch prices.

We split fajitas which were really good. There was plenty of food for two people on it. However, the one part I really liked was the chips and salsa. The salsa was great. For Arkansas, I can only imagine what "mexican" food it...but coming from Texas, this was really pretty good.

We enjoyed this restaurant and certainly would go back if ever in the area again.

Perhaps I was harking back to the Popeye cartoon watched in black and white in the late 50s when we broke the journey from Memphis to Hot Springs in this place.

It's part of a gas station/convenience store/24 hours truck stop complex just off I 40 and could well be a stage set for a piece of American film noir. If you enter through the store there are taciturn men feeding the slots. In the café there's an amateurishly partitioned smoking section, while crudely handwritten notices advise of age restrictions, one trip only to the salad bar etc. Washrooms are not too clean and the whole place could doo with a good scrub.

We had pulled pork sandwiches, this arriving swimming in sauce in the lowest grade burger buns. Salad bar items were fresh, not from bags but not too varied. A couple of other lone diners looked like regulars, so some menu items may be OK.

The waitress was from central casting but seemed in a grumpy mood. She could probably tell a tale or two.

Our meal was fine (my salad had a few yucky, older lettuce leaves) and my husband loved his hamburger. The service was very kind, friendly and hospitable. The staff seemed very customer service oriented, but yakked instead of cleaning countertops, dishes, tabletops. Overall looked messy... A little attention to cleanliness would go along way with the wonderfully cheery smiles at this restaurant.

Gene's BBQ & Family Restaurant

Reviewed By Thomas M - Newburgh, IN

Dropped in for dinner while staying nearby. They appear to be popular for BBQ but I tried the catfish plate. Very good meal. Servers were friendly, atmosphere very much down home, and the menu offered an interesting variety from fish to BBQ and even Quail. Not fancy, but the food was good. Breakfast anytime of the day. If you want to avoid the few chain restaurants there are in Brinkley, try Gene's. I don't think you will be disappointed.

New China

Reviewed By travelwriter52 - Conyers, GA

One of the problems with eating a China buffet, is you never know what you will get. The food are on steam tables and sometimes the food can be terrible. Surprisingly, despite the fact that we were basically by ourselves, the food was all fresh. This is one of those restaurants I call lazy Chinese, where you walk in, pay the cashier, she hands you a glass and you get everything else yourself.

Ordered takeout to bring back to our room. Was an easy place to get into and make my order. The service was good and fast. This is fast food so nothing fancy but it tasted good and was warm. If your just looking to pick something up and not have a big meal this is the place.
