This used to be a favourite location for me and my husband who is originally from Jonesboro. We were there June 2014 and there was a roach on one of the serving spoons. I almost passed out. Disgusting. The restaurant was so warm, I don't know what was wrong with their A/C but the heat was awful. We will never... More

This is one of, if not THE, worst restaurant in the entire area. The food is barely edible and it is over-priced, to boot. We have given them many chances, but have permanently removed them from our "Approved" list.

Please don't eat at Barnhills in Jonesboro, AR. We ate at 2:24 and the food looked like it had sat out all since morning. The roast beef was so dry you could not chew it and the fried chicken was so overcooked you could not even get through the skin. When you did it was tasteless. This place does not... More

I stopped eating here many years ago because it was so filthy and disgusting it made me nauseous. My son requested it today after church so I honored his request and gave it a shot. Not near as bad as it use to be. Still tons of dust all over the top of the air ducts but at least they... More

When I visited this buffet with my grandparents I noticed that the salad bar had more pudding options than vegetable choices and it only got worse after that. If you care more about quantity of food than quality, they do indeed have a lot of stuff that is eatable.

Sunday afternoon buffet included carved roast beef and ham, plus all the normal buffet type foods. Well prepared and kept hot. Didn't taste like buffet food. Excellent value.

I visited in July of 2012 and the food was very well. But since the fire the service has gone down hill. I visited again on August 19th on 2012. The chicken was not done and was so salty that you had to pull off the skin to eat. They seem to of changed manager and servers as well. The... More

The food simply was not good. They did however, fry a several pieces of white meat chicken when one of our party requested it - though it was not that good. Everything on the buffet was a little below average, with the possible exception of the no doubt frozen cheery cobbler which was good.
