I especially enjoy their vegetarian omelette and peanut butter pie. This place is very small though, so be prepared. It is definitely a hidden secret of Conway that... More

Years ago the Mean Bean was a pretty good restaurtant. I went there 3x's during Nov-Dec and it appears it's going down hill. The quality just don't seem to be there anymore. The portions are much smaller and in one instance they ran out of onion rings, which I ordered. Don't get me wrong the place is still clean and... More

Went there to try to eat healthy for once but found my favorite dish available. Surprisingly found that they had one of the best burgers in Conway.

Finding decent places for her to eat that offer more than 2 or 3 vegetarian options (besides a sad looking salad) has been more difficult than we'd... More

I visited here today for lunch for the first time, and it was awesome! A very clean kept restaurant. We ordered the cheese dip and chips as an appetizer (very good), and burritos as our entree. I was pleasantly surprised at the freshness of their food and ingredients, as well as their tea. The burritos were huge, and you definetly... More

Every thing served by Amanda was prompt and very tasty. For dessert we tried the strawberry yogurt pie and the oreo ice cream pie..YUM!! This was a fun lunch... More
