The restaurant has a wide selection of southern-style food. The service is very good, the staff was friendly and the cinnamon rolls were delicious.

For those of us who like country cooking, this place has delicious food. They have a good variety of entrees and side dishes. Everything is home cooked. Free cinnamon rolls are served with every meal, and the peach cobbler was outstanding.

This is one of the places where you can find great southern food - catfish and beef stew for example. And in the tradition of the south it is laid back and family friendly.

My husband and I were traveling through Ft. Smith and wanted to eat lunch so I checked Trip Advisor for recommendations. Calico Country seemed to be a good choice so we chose it. We went on a Sunday about 1:30. It looked very crowded on the outside and it was but it is bigger than it looks and we didn't... More

Went for breakfast. Good variety. Everything from biscuits, chicken fried steak, pancakes were homemade and delicious. Decor was fun and very clean.

Great local restaurant for home style cooked meals. Salads are huge. Awesome chili. Free cinnamon rolls with your meal that are heavenly. We have eaten here for years and never a bad meal. Love the retro decor. Friendly staff.

Lot's of good choices and friendly service. Extra delicious sides, such as baked squash, sweet potato casserole, fried okra and rice with pot-roast gravy. Reasonable prices and pleasant atmosphere with interesting decore. Everyone gets a free, fresh baked cinnamon roll. They have a separate meeting room for large groups. Plenty of parking a block off Rogers Avenue, next to Randall... More

Any place that gives you free cinnamon rolls is a good one in my book. I have never had an item here breakfast or dinner that wasn't wonderful. It is a great place for friends or family. If you have never been then you must try the cheese sticks appetizer, they are the best ever!
