Great food - great price

We tried this for dinner and enjoyed it so much we did it again the next night. Chicken fried steak or Chicken fried chicken - both came with 2 veggies and a choice of bread. Pies are worth saving room. Most are homemade. The decor is mostly Elvis. Breakfast is also served all day. We plan to eat... read more

My husband had chicken fried steak, I had chicken fried chicken. We both thought everything had a good flavor, but it was too salty. Also, the steak and chicken were overdone-too crunchy.

We loved breakfast at PJ's. Biscuits are to die for! Portions are large so come hungry and if it's the weekend, get there early. It is a little pricey for a casual breakfast place but definitely worth it.

We stopped here after visiting the Ozark Craft Center. It was recommended by a local who worked at the Center. I had the unique Rainbow Burger with sour cream and mushrooms, if I recall. I was great.

Mountain View, Arkansas was our destination for the second day of our trip to Texas. We arrived in Mountain View about 3:00. I selected this place for an overnight for its self-proclaimed title of “Folk Music Capital of the World”. I had been told that the town square and a small open area just off the square called “Pickin’ Park”... More

Great breakfast stop right on Main Street. I really enjoyed my eggs and hasbrowns with a biscuit and gravy. Besides good food, there's a lot to see especially if you're an Elvis fan. They even have cookie jars of all types for sale. Give it a go if you're looking for a convenient stop with some good grub that seems... More

Quality home cooking in the heart of Mountain View. When there are lots of locals, the food has to be good. Service was attentive and friendly. Homey place to have a good meal. Clearly worth the a visit if anywhere nearby.

I had eaten there years ago and it was really good, and when we stopped there I was hoping it still was. I was NOT disappointed! Ordered the razorback burger and fries. It was one of the best burgers I have ever eaten. If you can, save room for dessert! I had no room for it, but I am already... More

Quaint place to eat in Mountain View,AR. Ate lunch while on vacation with a friend. Had the BLT which was good, but their pie--sort of like pecan pie but with walnuts, chocolate chips, and coconut-slightly warmed could become addictive--yum!😄
