Food, service and atmosphere were great. BBQ brisket and ham were delicious and tender. Will be back when we are in Mena.

Food was very good. The Coconut Cream pie was excellent. We had to wait 15 minutes to be seated in a half empty restaurant. Not sure why. Service slow, I think our waitress must have been a new hire. We would go there again though and give it another try.

Ate here for dinner one evening and was scared at the line at the door. We had a large party and was seated in 20 mins. Had read that service was slow. We did not have any issues. The meal was great, hot and our server was wonderful. Would recommend. Wish we had room for dessert, homemade pies and cheesecake looked so yummy!

Very clean restaurant, friendly staff, very flavorful and tender ribeye.

Although the county is dry, BIB&S got a beer/wine permit recently.

The waitress was very sweet and efficient. The food was way below par. My husband's chicken fried chicken was okay. My son ordered the bbq plate with brisket and chicken. The "brisket" looked like dry curled up pieces of green roast beef with fat along the edges. He didn't eat it. The chicken was just okay. I ordered the aged sirloin. It was a strange cut of meat that was basically a chunk of fat with a little meat on it. I didn't eat it. The Texas toast was stale. The steak fries and fried okra were good.

This restaurant was advertised as a steakhouse, but the interior had bright garish lighting and cheap furniture. Overall, it was a very unpleasant experience.
