Little hole in the wall - great food and a little history

Went with a local and was not disappointed. They have some pretty unique food choices. We started out with an appetizer plate of tamales. They were good and come with a little chili. Very good. I had the catfish plate which was lightly breaded in corn meal and excellent! Came with some good... read more

First off... don't let the outside fool you! If you're a true steak lover, you know that a lot of times the best place to eat looks like a dump on the outside. I went with a coworker while out on a business trip. We shared a 3 1/2 lb Sirloin. She likes hers to be well done, and I... More

Really good Delta style tamales. Chilli servered on side. My wife had catfish which was also very good and good value. $40 steak, maybe next time.

When in Little Rock if you are looking for a fabulous fun place to eat please check out Doe's! We heard the history of the place and felt it was a joint we did not wanna miss! The steak is HUGE! A family can eat off of one steak! It is all served family style and just amazing. The fries... More

Some of the best steak in the metro is found here. We always get the t-bone cooked medium rare. It is always perfectly cooked. The Delta style tamales are very good as well. We love their soaked salad, and the other sides are tasty. Service is quick and friendly. One day, we'll get there early enough to try the porterhouse!

We got there at 5p and waited until they opened at 530. People just streamed in when the doors opened! Always a good sign. Very limited menu but who cares, you're going for steak. Got a 3lb porterhouse to share. Med/med-rare. Would have preferred a thinner cut but was awesome. Had an excellent crust. Came with handcut French fries covering... More

Yes-the place is not much to look at outside or really inside for that matter but worth a visit when you are in Little Rock. We have eaten here several times over the years, mostly for lunch but this time was for a Friday night dinner (they open at 5:30 on the dot). It will get packed very quickly. Of... More

This is a true slice-of-life southern restaurant. Lots of folks eat here, so you may want to go at an off-time unless you're willing to wait. Good food and fun.

We recently went to Doe's with a party of 16 with out of state guest. They wanted "hole in the wall" type food. I must admit I was shocked as we walked through the restaurant and into the kitchen to get to the back room BUT. The steak, fries, shrimp and SALAD were amazing. I can't recommend enough for people... More
