Great little place

I love the egg roll salad and the lemon cake is fantastic. Expect a little bit of a wait during the busy lunch rush. But its busy for a reason :)

My family and I go to Nothing Fancy almost every Saturday for lunch. I love the Asian menu as well as the burgers and other specialty items. The kitchen is clean and the staff is friendly. If you are a visitor or a local I highly recommend this restaurant.

They are ranked #1 for the best place to have lunch in Russellville. But I have no clue how they came about obtaining this ranking. You stand in line like you would at a McDonald's, and you must pay for your food right then and there. This is how they ensure that you don't leave. In my past two experiences... More

I just love this place. I'm completely predictable, always get the pork soup because it's FANTASTIC! It's my go-to craving year round, but even more so when cold/flu season hits. Every time I feel a sore throat or congestion coming on, I seem to be able to ward it off (and just plain feel better) with their soup and some... More

We love the egg roll salad. They have specials everyday. The portions are somewhat small though. Everything I have ordered has always been great. The Friday special is the BEST! Don't forget to have a piece of the lemon cake!

This little lunch counter is fast and has great Asian food! Their noodle soup and spring rolls are my favorite. And they have the best lemon cake anywhere!

As a Russellville resident, we visit Nothing Fancy often. The Egg Roll Salad is my favorite. The Friday special never disappoints.

Nothing Fancy is owned and operated by a lovely Vietnamese woman and her mother. They hand chop all the vegetables they use. They cook from scratch. They have a different daily special every day that's always good and reasonably priced. The specialty of the house is the egg roll salad, which is served on a bed of rice noodles and... More

This little hole is a lunch spot. It is great for grabbing a quick lunch with co-workers or friends. The egg roll salad is the way to go but everything I have tried on the menu is great.

While Noting Fancy may be the name, the food is wonderful! I love the Eggroll Salad, plus their daily specials are always good and plentiful. Good food, good service and a wonderful selection!
