Another favorite - best southern food in the River Valley! I have taken my family there as well as customers drom out of town and all enjoy the food immensely. I highly recommend this restaurant for anyone that wants to try local, southern cuisine!

Reminds me of Cracker Barrell with the decorations on the walls, but even better food. Everything we ordered reminded me of a home cooked breakfast and extremely delicious. The hash-browns are seasoned. The chocolate gravy is truly chocolate-y... The cinnamon rolls were great! Highly recommend.

Great food, all of it tastes scratch made. Competent service, good portions, fair prices. A display of home made pies to bring home brings it all together. Don't leave Fort Smith without stopping off for a satisfying belly fill.

Had lunch with a friend on Thursday. Noontime parking is not adequate in this shopping/business trip. The restaurant is large and clean. Modestly furnished. Prices are quite reasonable. Wait service was prompt and efficient. I had pot roast with two sides. Sides came separate containers on the plate with the meat. Sweet corn bread muffin and a small cinnamon roll.... More

This is located in a place I don't usually drive by but my daughter had been before so we went and tried it out. It was wonderful!! We all had different entrées and everyone love theirs. Chicken fried steak, catfish, patty melt and the vegetable plate were all very good. The cinnamon rolls they bring out first were moist and... More

Felt like I was at home here. Our server Mark was the nicest server I've had in forever. By the end of our meal he was calling me by name. Great place. I'd come back again when I'm in town.

I visited this restaurant with my wife and kids. I have 4 kids and the restaurant was accommodating for a group of 6. I had the giant country breakfast. It was great. The price is a little much for the quantity of food you get but it was delicious. The kids meals are reasonably priced. Overall, a decent little restaurant.

If you're looking for a local experience with an authentic taste of the south, this is the place! It's family owned and operated and everything is made from scratch! Homemade cinnamon rolls are brought out with your drinks and portions are generous. Chicken fried steak, broccoli and rice casserole, fried cheese sticks, chicken tenders, banana pudding, and homemade ranch dressing... More
