Ok the food is good there's no denying that, and the service is usually good. HOWEVER ever since one visit with a horrible waitress, my husband and I will no longer be returning. She ignored me the whole time and only asked for my order when my husband prompted her to. She didn't ask if I needed a refill the... More

Long a key restaurant in Fort Smith, now re-built from a fire, Calico County ranks as a centerpiece of food places here. Never have I heard one person say they don't like it.

We stopped in at Calico County for some home style cooking. We had the chicken n dumplings and pot roast. Both were very good and so was the service. We definitely recommend this spot.

Great fried barbecue ribs! We both ordered the ribs with two sides and it was delicious! Chris was our server and he couldn't have been more friendly or eager to please. We will be back when we return in November.

Love the fried chicken livers. They are the best in town. Lots of good sides to go with your entre that include baked squash and broccoli rice casserole to name a few. The complimentary cinnamon rolls are very tasty.

The atmosphere is better than ever, the food stayed the same great home cooking style and the service has always been terrific. I highly... More

I've been here at least two dozen times and never had gone away hungry or displeased. It can get crowded at times but that's more of a sign of how good it is.
