Great place to eat quantity but quality is not always there.

It's a buffet all you can stuff in. Great for family get togethers or meetings/banquets. Don't expect the world and you won't be disappointed.

This was my first visit to Brown's and it won't be the last. The place was clean and the buffet great. Good, country, home style, comfort food. It was very busy for lunch, but the lines moved fast. Fried green tomatoes, pintos, cornbread and rolls were my favorite. The price is amazing for a large buffet like this.

Stopped on the way back home while passing thru Benton with my wife. It's Country traveling, tacky at It's best. Super popular with the locals. Giant gift shop with tons of souveniers. Sort of like a Cracker Barrel buffet. Needs updating. Chairs feel like their about to break from underneath you. Food was not horrible. Sweet cornbread was good, the... More

Found this restaurant while driving the highways in Arkansas. A really nice find. Huge place. A big glass bin filled with chocolate, candies, and treats. Oh my --- that will be the first thing that you pass upon entering the restaurant. Amazing...aromas! Then go towards the back to find a big open dining area. The buffet has everything. I especially... More

I want to start out on a positive note and say that this place has soft yummy country rolls and the fried green tomatoes had me going back for seconds. They also have some beautiful stained... More

Some items were dry and bland. Got there an hour before closing so I'll give them a pass. Bar was fully stocked though.
