“Comfort Food at Its' Best”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

One of our friends here in Fort Smith took us to this great local cafe for lunch and we were pleasantly pleased with everything. The special this day was chicken fried steak and it was fried to perfection, not too much breaking. The entree was served with a very tasty white gravy, yum. The accompanying sides certainly complimented the meal, great mashed potatoes and some excellently prepared greens. Oh, and I can't forget to mention the home made cinnamon rolls that are served prior to the meal. Definitely a keeper. Wish it was closer to home!

“Back!”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

Wow, the restoration after the fire eight months ago! It looks so great! The restoration amazing! The food good. Our waitress must have been new, didn't even know what cheese comes on a patty melt, or that you get cornbread with chilli? No butter on table like the old days, not the same.

“Best home cooking!”
Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

This is one of my favorite restaurants in town. Closed due to a fire in November & I waited patiently for them to rebuild. I think they have the best chef salad in town. Their homemade cinnamon rolls are to die for! Welcome back!

“Disappointed!”
Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

Not as good as it used to be. I was really looking forward to a good Calico County meal after it opened from the fire. Our service was bad and the food was cold.

“Great Home Cooked Food!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

They have the best chicken fried steak. The mashed potatoes and macaroni are also delicious. We also love there breakfast items. And before your meal they bring out a plate of delicious hot cinnamon rolls. They closed due to a fire in November, but they plan to reopen in early August. They have also paid there employes while they were closed. The best home cooking I've ever had!
