“Nothing great about this place.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

Staff friendly but food very average to below average. Ordered filet but was not center cut. Cooked to order, but poor cut of meat. Potato soup was good. Does not serve alcohol. Expensive and not worth it.

“great restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

The bread bar is an unusal feature as we are accustomed to a salad bar. Very unique The Rib Eye was very good and tender.

“ribs and steaks average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

After a day of driving on the talimena we decided to have an early supper at Mena. We ordered the St. Louis ribs and a petite sirloin. The steak had a large strip of fat on the side and was not seasoned very well. . I was disappointed in the ribs. They were liked they had been smoked and then baked a while. Our waiter was a young man and just inexperienced.

We pulled up and a lady had a husband in a wheel chair. The parking lot is gravel and not handicapped friendly.

“Steaks”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

The sides and service were very good. The steak was disappointing for those with Texas standards of aged heavy beef. Ordered a filet that was served wrapped in bacon and the steak contained too much seasoning salt and the bacon was undercooked.

“Excellent food and variety and atmosphere.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012 via mobile

We stopped in Mena, AR after a beautiful fall foliage viewing along Talimena Scenic Byway. The B&B we stayed at offered us a discount at the Chopping Block Restaurant / Meat Market. Food was excellent and staff were very friendly. There may be other choices in the area, but this is my favorite.
Thanks, William!
