Still the best BBQ in Arkansas. Wattresses are high school kids that have other things on the mind. Their phones and gossiping with their friends, but that is expected from them they were very nice and friendly. Thanks

Stopped by here for lunch based on a recommendation from the Arkansas tourist info center. I'm glad I did. The place is big, kinda like an oversized country dining hall. The service was friendly. I had the half rack ribs with coleslaw and fried okra. Delicious. Prices were reasonable, considering the area. Plenty of parking. Popular with the locals. Highly recommended.

We like to check out local rest. while on a road trip. Nick's had many billboards along I-40 so thought we'd try it for lunch. The rural Interstate exit has several truck stops and fastfood places. Nick's parking lot was just about full, a good sign. Good food, friendly service. Only negative comment is that it could be cleaner and polsihed up a bit.
