Porterhouse

Three of us shared a porterhouse and 12 shrimp, and had a few tamales. Everything was so good! The fries and the salad are great also.

It doesn't look like much from the outside (and the inside doesn't look much better either) but the food is EXCELLENT. If you like monster ribeye steaks or the best tamales in town, Doe's is the place to go.

When you walk up to this legendary location, it really doesn't seem like much. That all changes once you walk through the front door. Historical pictures line the walls and the smell of fresh cooked beef is amazing. I ordered the standard burger and fresh cut fries for lunch and about 5 minutes later it was in front of me....

We loved the food here! It's a casual restaurant, with checkered oilcloth tablecloths, and lots of pictures and stuff on the walls. Nothing fancy, just good food! The steak was done perfectly, even accommodating one in our group who wanted her steak medium well instead of Medium rare like the rest of us. One section of the steak was done... More

You need to be hungry to enjoy a steak here. Most are meant to be shared starting at 2 lbs. The 8oz was pricey at $35. I ordered an appetizer of shrimp for my meal and had 6 large shrimp and fries included with the order. My husband ordered the shrimp meal and that included fries, potatoes, Texas toast and... More

Doe's is a family owned and operated restaurant and has been for almost 30 years. Great food, great staff and great history. It's a must stop in Little Rock!

The porterhouse was fantastic, cooked perfectly, and had that fresh taste and buttery goodness. Got the tamales, which were just spicy enough for the adults, but not too spicy for the kids. Fries were great, and my wife has been asking me to make salads "like Doe's salad" ever since we left.

When you sit down and view the menu, you'll notice that it's very short. They offer steaks. The appetizers are likely to fill you, with the generous portions, but the steaks are some of the best you'll ever sink a knife into. Don't bother asking the wait staff for steak sauce, they will make a mockery of that. The steaks... More

Huge, juicy steak, enough to share. Tasty home style fries and new potatoes. Don't judge by the outside of the building...a true gem!
