In my opinion as well as all 11 of my birthday guest everything was great, from the service to the food. We were treated with courteous manners. The atmosphere was pleasing to all. We ate a variety of food and nobody complained about anything. Everything...was so wonderful we are planning the birthday celebration of one of my guest next week at the same Black Eyed Pea restaurant next week.More

I heard this place had a very good Chicken Fried Steak. Wrong. The size of the steak was very good; however, the steak lacked any flavor. The roll and cornbread were very good. The service, once seated, was very good. The restaurant was busy, but...the seater took a long time to seat anyone. Probably waited for 10-15 minutes and I was second in line.More

I think this may be the last of the surviving BEP locations in existence. Everything was pretty average....may be why they are all gone.

Several years ago, the Black Eyed Pea restaurants closed in Houston. We were aware that Arlington had the only Black Eyed Pea in Texas. So during a visit in Fort Worth, we decided to visit this restaurant. Great food, still serving the classics and Colton...provided excellent service. The rolls were smaller but still had that amazing taste.More

Well this is definitely not like the good old days when black eyed pea was great and prevalent around Texas. I believe this is the last one in Texas and it is not great. The service was fine but the food is pretty bad. The...pork chops were cookes to well done, the baked fish tasted like it was cooked yesterday and reheated. It was very very dry. My wife and I both had green beans as a side and mine looked fresh and hers looked like yesterday's leftovers. I am really surprised this place is still open. I miss the original black eyed pea and this is not it.More

The service and food were ok. The restaurant itself is very run down. I believe some reupolstry was in progress, however, the furniture was ugly and worn out, there was plastic sheeting visible and brooms and mops in the dining room area. The worst was...the smell coming from the restrooms! I sure hope those are torn out and remodeled, gross! This should all have been done while the place was closed. It was like having lunch in a construction zone with the open sewer nearby. Terrible experience for our party of 7.More

What a refreshing surprise. The food was served exactly as ordered. The waitstaff was prompt with our drinks and orders. Delicious food, excellent service equals an above average gratuity. I can't wait to come back. This place rocks!

The feel of a home cooked meal with hands down the best server of all time. Archie took great care of our family! We will definitely be back!

I always love going here because not everyone in our group can agree on what to eat and where to eat. So this gives everyone a variety to choose from. And another thing is no one ever complains that they did not like the food,...its amazing to have a party of 8 or more with no complaints, even the little ones actually sits down and eats . so if your are looking for a home cooked meal without having to clean the dishes and be able to enjoy your company this is the place to come.More

This restaurant moved from prior location. The wait staff and food have for some reason gone a bit downhill. With so many restaurants in the area I’d put this one towards the end of my list

The Sunday after church crowd has found the Black-Eyed Pea food to be good and at a good price. At 2 PM, we had a short wait for a table to open. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Service was fairly quick. There is a...menu for seniors (65+), but you need to ask for it. I had the Baked White Fish with a lemon sauce and two side dishes and cornbread or yeast rolls and either coffee or tea. My wife ordered the meatloaf with the same number of sides and a drink. we found the food to be very good and served hot.More

We had 4 couples & enjoyed our leisurely lunch!! Our server did a very good job. It would be nice if they had someone who refills drink through the rush.

We have been going to the Pea for years. Classic TX cafe cooking. We had turkey dinners. Good selection of sides: mashed potatoes, green beans, fried okra, squash casserole, etc. They also have vegetable plates, a throw-back to my TX childhood. Josh was our helpful...and friendly server. The Pea has been having some financial troubles so they have closed several locations. Glad to know they are still in business and the food is still goodMore
