Family-owned diner featuring many different burgers, sandwiches, side, shakes and much more. Music and memorabilia from the 40's, 50's and 60's. Our hospitable staff awaits you!

Sent the boys out to get hamburgers so we could eat at the RV. Didn't expect them to be so good. These burgers were huge and could easily split on if not sharing with a teenage boy that is. Tasty.

Howard's Do-Nuts

Reviewed By carlinda6665 - Decatur, Illinois

The doughnuts were very fresh and tasty. The coffee was good. The people were friendly. Was the place a little run down? Yes, but what good doughnut place isn't? I have no use for trendy doughnut restaurants with their weird flavors. I want a fresh cinnamon roll and a cup of coffee. That's it.

I come here every so often but was recently there and it was awful. They had ice cream options but were out of the 'staple' flavors like strawberry, rocky road, gold medal ribbon, etc. We just went to Sonic instead. It was ridiculous. The staff could care less about their customers. Won't be back for a while.

Bourbon Street Steakhouse-Grill

Reviewed By airlink9972 - Memphis, Tennessee

Treated myself to Bourbon's Steakhouse for my upcoming birthday. From friends and family heard nothing but positive things about the food and decided to dine there.
I arrived shortly after opening mid week without a reservation. No issue, I was quickly seated.
I was greeted right away by the waiter's assistance. After getting my drink order, gave me the daily specials and suggestions..
I received a plate of breads and butter. I'm a bread person and found the bread good.
I had for an appetizer the Lafayette Blue crab cakes and also a Caesar salad.
The carb cakes were the only disappointment of the meal. The were a small portion, salty and ok. The Caesar salad was good, the right balance of dressing.
For the main course, I had the ribeye with a baked potato. Both were excellent. My steak was cook perfect and well season.
I was too full for dessert and decline.
My service was good and everything was timed correctly.
The pricing was what you expect from mid range steakhouse.
The steakhouse is tucked on the second floor and you have to go through the Greyhound racing area to get to it.
It was a nice dining experience

Colton's Steak House & Grill

Reviewed By Gerie K

My family of 4 recently visited Colton's Steak House and Grill while traveling through Marion. The greeter and waitress both carried the attitude of "why are you bothering me". They serve whole salted peanuts in shell. The buckets for both nuts and shells were rusty, had a sticky goo over them, and the stickers touting the business were filthy. Rolls with butter and honey were served soon after seating.
Our family ordered a variety of items including Mesquite Grilled Chicken Salad, Montana Burger, Colton's Smoked Ribs with a Caesar Salad, and 6 oz. Sirloin with Loaded Smashed Potatoes. Everyone was pleased with their meal with the exception that the steak was served well done instead of the requested medium-well which made the steak tough. The ladies restroom was disgusting. The floor has residue that resembles chocolate cake batter heaped along the edges.

Went in, not expecting too much. After all this is a knock-off casino of sorts, tied to a dog track. Surprise. Hot, fresh, delicious eats. Good selection. Service is fairly decent, too. Sweet potato casserole was the best I've tasted, anywhere.

Cracker Barrel

Half Restaurant. Half Store. All Country

Reviewed By Judi7758 - Des Moines

We eat at Cracker Barrel restaurants quite often and always enjoy the comfort food so when we saw one across the street from our hotel, it was a no-brainer. The food is always consistent and I enjoyed my meal, even though it could have been served hotter. Most disconcerting was when my grandson called my attention to the ceiling fan above our heads. It wasn't running and obviously hadn't been run in a while - it was caked with dust to the point that the layer of dust was hanging off of the fan blades! When I see that degree of filth, it makes me wonder how clean the kitchen is??

Audrey Pizza and Grill

Reviewed By RebecaEleria - Saint Louis, Missouri

Do you like pizzas? How about having over a dozen different kinds of pizza? Or how about putting together a delicious Mexican meal? You can do both at Audrey Pizza and Grill. I was staying overnight in Marion, AR, on my way back home to Missouri. I asked the front desk staffer where I might go for a good meal - one that tasted good and was reasonably priced. I was directed to Audrey's and it was such a positive experience that I decided to write a review. First, it's a very popular place in town - and now I know why. The buffet is constantly refreshed offering salad makings, shrimp dishes, an every-changing assortment of pizzas, taco makings, desserts and much more. If it's pizza you're wanting, just tell your waitress which pizza(s) you'd like and that pizza will be delivered to your table as the waitress asks how many pieces you would like. If you haven't taken them all (foolish to do given all the other delicious dishes you can get off the buffet) the waitress proceeds to every other table with the remainder and asks other customers if they would like to try the pizza. It's a fantastic place to dine - and very reasonably priced. Don't expect tablecloths and fancy decorations. But do expect a good meal in a fun setting. Oh, and don't miss the variety of dessert pizzas. I could not resist the Tropical. Amazing. TOO amazing!
