We walked along the main boulevard and came upon this place. So we stepped in and took in a sigh of relieve. What character and very relaxing. I loved all the neat things all over. It gave you something to look at and enjoy. The servers were friendly and when we got our food it was all good. I very neat place to try.
Their soda foutain counter and backbar are reproductions based upon fixtures in the Mountainburg Drug Store, Mountainburg, Arkansas. The fountain equipment itself is from the 1940's and has been refurbished and donated for our use. Today they sell ice cream and fountain novelties made by the same two Fort Smith companies, Ward ice Cream and White Dairy that sold ice cream to Fort Smith's post-World War I drug stores.
After exploring Fort Smith Historic Site and this wonderful museum, we sat and enjoyed wonderful root beer floats. What a gem this whole building is. The folks here are super!!
Delicious Latin food- Equador! Festive atmosphere, small restaurant, lots of fun! The bartender served great drinks. Who knew they would have such a great restaurant serving this unique blend of latin foods in this small town of Arkansas. I have visited on several occasions, and have never been disappointed. I will take a few pictures on my next visit.
All the dishes have very fresh ingredients, delicious!
Favorite Dish: Don Quixote Burrito!
Mexican style steak house, wheelchair accessible, family oriented with tasteful decor. A place you would take a special someone for a romantic dinner or just sit at the spacious bar,make friends and chat.
Favorite Dish: The steak is truly wonderful. I would recommend the Maravillas house dressing and steak sauce. The flavors come together with each bite. These guys know what they are doing on the grill.
It seemed pretty good. The real reason for stopping here is to drive up, and either turn on lights for service at the car, or walk in, or just shout. Looks like it has been here 40-50 years, and nothing has changed.
Favorite Dish: Ham & cheese is what I had, so I guess this is example of the fare. It was good and like made back form the 1960's. The other menu items seemed like of interest, like chicken fried steak, fried pickles, etc.
It really was more like Mexican food rather than Cuban flavors. Yes, I know what Cuban is like; I was close many time when in Puerto Rico. NO pork with the hairs still on the skin. This was simply a southern style Mex restaurant being promoted as something else. Maybe we can now get to Cuba, but local flavor has a way to go.
Favorite Dish: Had a chicken enchilada burrito. It was okay and had some different toppings, like green chile base, but still Mexican flavor. Micky-companion had a pork wrap, and it was just okay-nothing to brag about. The marinated onions were good as side item and the black beans/rice of course. Basic items were $8-10 for lunch.
Overall it was a fairly good place to eat. Food was fresh and the receptionist was authentic in that she did not speak much English. I think some of the locals get their fix here in a "BIG" way because of the quantity' even beat me for out for plates consumed.
Favorite Dish: The buffet had the full compliment of Chinese items to sample, appetizers, staple basics of pork, beef, and chicken, and some good fried rice. Desserts were there also. Price of buffet was $6.95. It is somewhat small, and maybe one of few in town of Chinese
Fort Smith, a land of many influences. Although unknown to most outsiders (and many locals), the Army base, Ft. Chafee, in the city of Ft. Smith served as a haven and operations base for refugees from the Vietnam War in the 1970's and Castro's Cuba in the 1980's. Many of these folks hung around, and the food culture they created is incredible. Add in the "Texican" influence, and let the flavors run wild. You'll have to venture just outside of downtown on any major street, and you will find little restaurants and cafes that serve up these great foods. DON'T WORRY-some may look unwelcoming from the outside, but they want your business and company and are completely clean and safe. IMAGINE DINING IN HAVANA OR HANOI IN ARKANSAS? In Fort Smith, you can.
we don't know if we where here on the wrong day, but we didn't like it.
Food wasn't tasty, server was in a bad mood and sometimes forget about us and that was not because it was terribly busy...
We never before had gone to a Lonestar restaurant...We never have been there since...
Just had an e-mail from the new General Manager of this steakhouse, things should be much better now. Since i live a long way from Fort Smith i would really like to now if things are better now.
Let me know if my tip is making no more sense since the new manager.
Favorite Dish: No favorites...even the prices weren't right...
Lone Star Steakhouse & Saloon is a unique category of restaurants, offering higher-quality service and food than existing chain or independent restaurants.
Above is the actual text from their website...sorry we can't agree with that...
As you step out of your car, you can smell the mesquite wood buring and hear the loud country music playing. The ambiance is Texas themed, upbeat and fun with interesing wild west artifacts littering the walls. Peanuts arrive at each and every table. All the steaks are hand cut and the Texas Ribeye will melt in your mouth. They also offer a wide variety of seafood and chicken plates. My wifes favorite is the Sweet Bourbon Salmon.
We like to go on Tuesdays for Kids Eat Free night.
The walls are covered in vintage advertisments and signs. They have table, as well as booth seating for different size parties. The food is the real attraction. American country cookin' with lots of flavor.
Favorite Dish: My favorite is the pot roast. It positively falls apart on your fork it is so tender. You have got to try the broccoli/rice caserole as one of your sides. Even if you hate broccoli, you will love this. Everything I have tried has been great; Effie Mae's Meatloaf, the chicken fried steak, chicken livers, You can even get a vegetarian plate with all sides. Just try it.
calico county, on 56th street (off rogers avenue, just east of I-540), has terrific
"down-home" food and excellent service at very reasonable prices (less than $10 per
person, including soft drink). everything i have ever tried there was good.
they have a huge selection, from roast beef to salads to soups to meat loaf to hamburgers to sandwiches to all kinds of chicken, etc. they are very tolerant of children, and all of the servers seem to be extremely good-natured.
Favorite Dish: they bring these WONDERFUL cinnamon-streaked rolls to the table when you first arrive.
Ever eaten in a Barn, or been told you should be?? You'll fit right in at this delicious Steak Restaurant.
The dining rooms are tucked into actual Horse Stalls..... If you don't think about it too much, it's kinda fun!
Oh, the Steak is delicious too!
The food here is good and basic steak place. This one we did not eat in, but know the tradition
Favorite Dish: A sirloin steak runs about $26-28 for 16 oz.
