Nothing extraordinary just a large selection of comfort food. Hot items hot and cold items cold. Place was crowded as many locals eat at this establishment. It is simply good food at a reasonable price.

I used to eat here with my grandmother as a child when we would go on vacations it was her favorite! It's been 21 years since I've been here so on a road trip I asked my husband if we could stop and eat. He was reluctant because it's buffet and he didn't a fan of buffets but he stopped... More

Run of the mill open a can and stick on the Buffett line. Limited flavor , nothing fancy and over priced. It is large (long) just lacking in everything except the length of the food bar.

We've been coming here for years. Anytime we visit Arkansas, Brown's is a must stop. There is so much to choose from. Great southern food. The seafood on the weekends is the best. The desserts are nothing to write home about but I'm full before then anyways. Friendly staff keep the buffet clean and well stocked. Truck parking. Gift shop... More

My husband and I stopped here on our way to Dallas. They had semi-truck parking so that was a plus. The food was hot and fresh and most things we tried were pretty tasty. The dessert bar was just ok that's why I didn't give it 5 stars. The fact that truckers don't have many choices outside of truck stop... More

I brought my daughter in law and 6 year old granddaughter today. First off it was almost $40 for the 3 of us. Nothing tasted good today. Mac and cheese was dried out and didn't taste right. Mashed potatoes tasted like they were instant. Turnip greens tasted like they came straight out of a can. Everything we tried today was... More

Stopped here with my family on the way home from a road trip. There is pretty much anything you could ask for, there's really too much. Maybe if they had less items they could season the food alittle more. My family and I found the food to be bland. The food is not bad, it's just not great. The staff... More

This buffet features a variety of southern specialties such as fried chicken, collard greens, hush puppies, corn bread, and so much more. There are southern desserts as well. This is a gem and a lady came over to take plates away and bring over refills. She was very nice and then the store has many different kinds of items and... More

After reading some reviews we debated on eating here. We decided it was about a 50/50 shot. I'm glad we stopped. It's nothing exceptional, but it was good food with a nice selection of southern food. They do have a lot of fried foods so if you're wanting to eat healthy, this probably isn't the place for you. I enjoyed... More

Their website really was enticing and we'd never tried them before. So traveling back home from a Little Rock concert, we decided to give them a try especially since they opened early at 10 a.m. There were a lot of choices, but for someone who rarely eats fried foods anymore, I was later regretting all the greasiness in my tummy!...
