Went there recently and the food was blah and bland and more blah. Very limited menu to select from and the specials are daily. Don't be hungry or you will not be satisfied!

Don't listen to the 5 star reviews of this place unless you never eat out. The egg roll salad was a real let down...1/2 cup rice noodles with a skinny 3 inch egg roll on top. Tasteless, and the tasteless sauces didn't help. Also, the pork Alain was dry white rice with a small amount of pork. Plastic plates and... More

This is in the City Mall in Russellville. Counter service, take-out, or eat at the tables in the mall area. Tasty pork and onions on rice with outstanding sauce. Great spring rolls. Busy lunch hour business.

They offer a wide variety of menu items such as hamburger, sweet and sour chicken, chicken salad sandwiches, egg roll salads, taco salads, and more! My favorite is the egg roll salad with spicy sauce! So good! They also have a beef noodle soup which is actual a Pho. They have daily lunch specials. Friday is the shush kabob with... More

I love the egg roll salad and the lemon cake is fantastic. Expect a little bit of a wait during the busy lunch rush. But its busy for a reason :)

My family and I go to Nothing Fancy almost every Saturday for lunch. I love the Asian menu as well as the burgers and other specialty items. The kitchen is clean and the staff is friendly. If you are a visitor or a local I highly recommend this restaurant.

They are ranked #1 for the best place to have lunch in Russellville. But I have no clue how they came about obtaining this ranking. You stand in line like you would at a McDonald's, and you must pay for your food right then and there. This is how they ensure that you don't leave. In my past two experiences... More

I just love this place. I'm completely predictable, always get the pork soup because it's FANTASTIC! It's my go-to craving year round, but even more so when cold/flu season hits. Every time I feel a sore throat or congestion coming on, I seem to be able to ward it off (and just plain feel better) with their soup and some... More

We love the egg roll salad. They have specials everyday. The portions are somewhat small though. Everything I have ordered has always been great. The Friday special is the BEST! Don't forget to have a piece of the lemon cake!
