Being very partial to Kansas City barbeque, I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the barbeque - it was great - almost as good as KC!! The house bbq sauce is a vinegar sauce that is surprisingly good. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the service was excellent. I'll definitely plan to eat there the next... More

From the smiles one each face they really did enjoy it. Wife had grill chicken breast and was very pleased. LB had the 14 oz NY Strip steak and cleaned... More

If you want the same old BBQ, spaghetti, pork chops, etc., then by all means go to Apple Bees, Dave's BBQ, or Chili's. If you enjoy real food smoked on site and cooked from scratch on site, this is your place. This is a hometown treasure that has been in business a long time. Yum!

A nice family celebration became disastrous when we were double billed....lied to by the manager who said the waitress had not sent through a second billing for our table of six. Then an additional $90.99 was charged to our credit card which was dismissed as belonging to another customer (?) who had supposedly used a different a completely different credit... More

I do a lot of entertaining, so when I get corporate exec's from out of town, this is where I always go. It captures the essence of Bentonville. This is one of Sam's favorite spots back in the day. I recommend the Fred's Steak and have the BBQ sampler brought out for Dessert. I like sitting in the bar, but... More

Fred's has been a Bentonville tradition. We were there recently for lunch. Not our first visit. Very small lunch crowd that day. The service was great, it alway is. The bar-b-que was great. Share a lot of the ribs and mixed platter bar b que. You could just eat a lot of this as your meal. The smoked steaks are... More

The review's of "Q" in this neck of the woods are pretty sketchy and leave one worrying about whether or not it is to be found here. Well based upon a couple of comments in reviews about this place...like that Sam Walton used to be a regular (and he could eat wherever he wanted, right)...I tried it. THANKS SAM! It... More

Our hostess had recommended the smoked sirloin since she knew we liked prime rib. It was amazing It tasted like the best prime rib but much less fatty and very tender. Our server was very congenial and gracious. The atmosphere is cozy and lovely at the same time. It was a very special dinner for two.
