Brown's Country Store and Restaurant is a large establishment with a very large buffet. We were here for lunch, which was $9.99, all you can eat. Walk in, pay the cashier, grab a tray, and dig in. Lots of salad fixings and types, plenty of veggies and hot rolls. Entrees included meatloaf, grilled chicken, fried fish, and roast beef. There... More

It is ok, the food is a little bland. It does not live up to the hype that people who live in the Little Rock area claims it to be.

Food is excellent, wide range of choices, people seem friendly, very spacious. On a down side restrooms could improve and buffet needs to be cleaned more often. The store has a nice selection. I would definitely stop here again.

This is the typical horse trough place. There is 100 feet of food. It's not great but it's eatable. The place needs a deep cleaning. They clean up after each person leaves but it still needs a good scrubbing. There's plenty to choose from and there are several desserts. We stop to get the fudge but its changed too. There... More

Some of the food was good, some not as good, some not worth eating. 3 star rating as it was a buffet and you can just toss what's not. The good thing is they have large vehicle parking if you need it. Needs some up dates too. Especially in the restrooms.

This restaurant has really good homemade country cooking. If you want an early lunch, this is the place to be. They open at 10 a.m. for lunch when most restaurants don't open until 11.

Had the misfortune of going on a Saturday for lunch not knowing they charge full price for the buffet all day Saturday and Sunday. The billboard said $9.99 and that's why we stopped. The gal at the register was cruddy about it as well. Salty, mushy food with little taste. Very disappointing and we won't return.

The food was so flavorful. Browns has the very best fried chicken, collard greens, and okra that I've ever eaten. So many things to pick from and they all tasted delicious. The chicken and dumplings were also fantastic. This is truly the best Buffett place ever!
