Unexpected surprise - we weren't expecting much from the looks of the outside. Pulled pork was very good, sides were not outstanding but still good. I had sweet potato fries and okra.

We took a chance because of the great reviews and wasn't disappointed. We had the fried shrimp basket with fries and some of the best coleslaw anywhere, alligator basket with special corn on cob and potatoes and oyster basket with fries and coleslaw. We also had the boudin appetizer which was cooked to perfection. Beer was cold, service outstanding and will definitely visit again before our visit is over. Lady who owns the place was terrific and made our visit perfect.

We stayed down the street and were able to walk to the restaurant. The service and food was excellent and reasonably priced. We're were able to have a margarita as we were walking and it was wonderful after a long day of driving. Did not expect to find the quality of food we found compared to restaurants here in Austin. We will visit again when traveling through the area.

No fancy frills, just friendly folks serving up fine food. I like cafeteria style because you get to see what is being offered. My lunch today was meat loaf, mashed potatoes, boiled cabbage, cole slaw, corn bread and iced tea. Very good and a bargain at $8.27. The staff here really aims to please

The food was beautifully presented and tasted great. Arrived late to the motel and was glad we to find anything open. This was a lucky find and we (a party of 7) were all very pleased with our dinners. Highly recommend this restaurant and would eat here often if we lived in the area.

I've always loved Popeye's Spicy Chicken. Their sites are usually inferior, hard to see & get to. But I can recognize the sign & figure how to get to it & park. This one was part of a gas station property.
Cashier said "15 minutes" for Spicy, while there were piles of mild under the light. So I reluctantly said "2-piece combo white, Mild, side of potatoes, please." Handed me $1.74 in change from a $10. I asked for Mardi Gras Sauce, & she handed me two. Never asked "For here or To Go?"
In 2 minutes a counter employee pushed a sack with a box in it across the counter, & set down a paper drink cup.
Chicken skin was light & crispy & the white meat was tender & juicy inside. Soft biscuit, potatoes & gravy.
There was (1) napkin container in the entire place, on the Order counter with straws, lids, & forks, where customers were ordering & waiting. So to get extras for my greasy fingers, I had to weave between them "Excuse me" "Excuse me"
I turned the box around & indicated it was empty. He brought out another batch wrapped in brown paper. Set it on the counter & tore open the end without speaking, continuing to stare over my head into space.
Apparently customers are not deterred, since the other choices in town are what I term the "worst fast-food" franchises.
Cooks were alert, reading tickets & moving fast ~ Drive-thru Attendant was busy on a rainy day.
3*** is for the quality of the Chicken & sides.

Motel clerk recommended this as a good Mexican restaurant while passing thru Forrest City. Not only do they serve Mexican food, but also have an extensive pizza menu. We took advantage of the buffet which offers a variety of Mexican salads and entrees plus the pizza buffet. They will make pizza to order, serve slice(s) to you after it is baked and the remainder of the pie goes on the buffet for others to enjoy. Staff was attentive and on the ball, food was tasty and the overall experience very enjoyable. Will definitely stop here again when passing through. And the price is right also - the buffets are only $8.50 ea. plus drinks - less than $25.00 for a couple.

Discovered that name has changed to Andrey Mexican Grill & Pizza. Visit at lunch. Plenty of choices of pizza and Mexican items. Came by the table and offered to fix any kind of pizza we wanted them to put out on the buffet. Off and on during the meal someone walked by offering a piece of pizza right out of the oven. All the queso & guacamole you want. We were just passing through but we would definitely come again. We were told we could also order from a menu of we wanted to.
