If your travels bring you to Conway, Arkansas, and particularly to the UCA area, it is worth your while to make a stop at Stoby's, a Conway staple for decades. Humble in appearance, this city institution is where the locals eat. Primarily a sandwich and breakfast stop, this is a good old-fashioned cafe. They are perhaps most famous for their... More

It was a Saturday morning after recouping from two weeks in China and had the major breakfast urge. Only one place to go in Conway and it was off to Stoby's. I normally have the Denver omelet with hash browns and a side of biscuits and gravy. But today I decided to finally try the "Big Mess", which consists of... More

There is no denying that the dip is way better here than the stuff available in the stores. I will admit that it looked like everyone came here for the burger and fries too. I picked the chili instead. It was not the worst but close. I do want to go back for the burger

The restaurant is known for it's cheese dip. While I do like it, I can't really bring myself to go in. The entire restaurant smells of grease and when you leave you smell like it too. It's dank and dirty. I grew up around here and used to go all the time, but it just gets dirtier and more smelly.

Stoby's is a "must do" when in Conway. They have a great breakfast menu & are famous for their cheese dip & the Stoby sandwich. They started serving dinner few years ago & The dinner options are yummy too. If that's not enough, they have a bakery next door with fabulous cakes, cookies, cupcakes, fudge and more.

This is a nice place with a lot of locals and college kids and young professionals. So, a great mix of people who all choose Stoby's. The food is good. The cheese dip can't be beat. I like the original best, but the white cheese dip is also good with a kick!

The cheese dip at Stoby's is legendary, and for good reason. However, every menu item is consistently excellent. You can never go wrong at Stoby's, and I've eaten there many, many times. Never had a bad meal there. Everything is good. Highly recommend the desserts.

I was visiting in Conway for 3 days - ate breakfast there one day and the omelette was among the best I have ever eaten. Went back the next day and had breakfast pastries from PattiCakes, their bakery, and they were superb. Went one last time late in the evening - the grill was already closed and I was steered... More

A small cafe with great food and a friendly staff. Located near University of Central Arkansas, this eatery is popular with students. They get lots of bang for their buck here. Nice menu covers all the basics. Breakfast, lunch and dinner daily except Sunday.

A little nondescript corner eatery with well defined food! Eclectic menu. Best cheeseburger, maybe ever. Everyone at our table order something different. All the plates were licked clean! 805 Donaghey Ave, Conway, AR 72034 (501) 327-5447
