Always enjoy Omar’s for after work cocktails, especially at the bar upstairs and (in cooler weather) on the deck outside. Frequently it morphs into dinner, with the usual choice one of the ribeyes or Sushi-grade tuna. Great service, ambiance and familiar faces.

Omar's has the best food in Jonesboro. The ambiance is nice and the food is superb. My only reason for not giving them 5 stars is that the prices are high for an old timer like me.
