After living here over 34 years, and traveling down Cantrell nearly every day, my husband and I stopped in on a busy Saturday. Remembering that there used to be some sort of pizza joint there back in the day, and not liking it as a kid, those memories soon faded as we were welcomed by all sorts of Arkansas photos, license plates, souvenirs, and a plethora of hamburger doodads. We gave our order at the counter. They have the "Rock" which is a hungry soul's soul food, a monster of a burger, but I opted for the "Hog" which is a juicy, bacon cheeseburger. The sandwiches come with a pickle and chips, but I chose to add fries. Hubby got and has stuck with the "Athens chicken platter" which is chicken grilled with feta cheese and other Greek flavors, and a hunk of toast. The thing that we enjoy getting on a splurge is either their seasonal fried pies, or a strawberry malted milkshake. They hand dip them and mix them thick! Now, they also have plenty of appetizers, but unless you've got a hollow leg, the en tree is super filling. I seem to remember fried pickles, cheese dip and chips, and some salads, but I always stick to my burger, after all... if it's in the name, it must be good!

You must order at the counter and pick up your food, so do not expect fine dining, but this is BBQ that they are serving, not French cusine. They have the best pulled pork that I have ever tasted. The potato salad is amazing and the six sauces provide enough variety for anyone. My favorite is a mix of sauces 1 and 3. Please be prepared to eat when you go and make sure that you also try the ribs if you get a chance. I have tried every place in town and many all over the country. This is the best. My only fear is that they have started expanding to other locations in the last year. Please don't let the quality go down!
This restaurant by far serves the best mexican food I've ever had. Their white queso dip is the best. I had the beef chimichanga which was fabulous and my husband had the southwestern taco. Both were flavorful without being overwhelmed by heat from spicy seasonings. Our server was attentive checking back at just the right times to keep our glasses full but not interupting us. We never had to tell him what we had to drink he always remembered. Your dinner includes complementary salsa and chips as well. All in all a great value for the quality and amount of food you receive. If you haven't been you should go.
