Restaurant Development in NW Arkansas

Recommended Posts

There certainly needs to be good options for good breakfast in the area. Personally, I am tired of IHOP/Waffle Hut/Denny's/Village Inn. Mimi's breakfast is good, but service there is horrendous.

Wesner's and Bob Evans are the only ones around here that I recommend to others.

It looks like Freddie's Frozen Custard and Steak Burgers is coming to the old KFC location in Rogers across from Atlanta Bread. We're gonna need a few more Jenny Craig locations around here ;)

Not sure if it was mentioned on here -- I heard that Damgoode Pies Pizza is opening a location on Walnut in Rogers next to Slim Chickens.  I believe it's in the building that used to be a Rib Crib.  Nice to see a few newer options coming to that area.

The old Rib Crib building is nice, and empty for a long time. It is nice to hear something going in there.

and Andy's needs some competition in the area. I can go to Braum's and order ice cream for everyone in the bus equal to the cost of a single item at Andy's.

Had my first Maid-Rite sandwich today in Bentonville. Love the interior of the place...nice diner feel. Good loose-meat sandwich and cheese curds.....though the curds tasted a lot like Sonic cheese bites. The lady behind the counter was super-friendly and helpful. But....I was the only customer. Maybe they do better closer to lunch time. Glad to hear Damgoode Pies is coming this way.

I had a business lunch a little while back that the Red Onion in Bentonville catered. I thought it was very good. It still doesn't beat sandwiches from the Iron Horse in Rogers thought. I will have to look into Maid-Rite.

Freddy's Frozen Custard & Steakburgers coming to the old KFC near the freeway in rogers.   I've had them before in Las Vegas. I thought it tasted better then steak and shake but not better than Five Guys.   Its a franchise started by a WWII Veteran in 50's.   Best of luck to them!

Good news all you Chuy's fans -- noticed this in the paper this morning on the Rogers Planning Commission agenda:  "A large-scale development plan for Chuy’s Restaurant, 4889 W. Pauline Whitaker Parkway, in highway commercial zoning."  Which would put it adjacent to the Walmart Neighborhood Market just west of I-540.

Friend was praising a new place that took over the Wing Stop location over in East Fayetteville called The Taste. Said it was very good but a little pricey. Burgers and such. Let's hope for a better fate than others like Café Delta Blues.

The Egg & I opened today. Huge portions and good food. Think they will do well.

they had a private pre opening on the 21st... I've always wondered how do these places select who gets to attend the pre opening....

according to the article below the group will donate 100% of proceeds to the Tri-State Family YMCA..  not bad

The people that attend are usually people involved in the process of getting the restaurant opened, friends and family.

Something is afoot at the old Kirby's/Short Smalls in Fayetteville. Noticed the for sale sign seems to be gone  and some folks inside again today.

FYI I heard the Colony Shop was purchased a few months ago.  Will soon be a plastic surgery clinic.  At least, that's what I heard.

 

It was purchased. Dr. Bolding bought it and he is an oral and maxillofacial surgeon

I contacted Longhorn Steakhouse and inquired about when construction will start. This is the reply I received.

To find other locations, you may use our restaurant locator on our web site at www.longhornsteakhouse.com.

Seems the Marketplace Express in Rogers and Burger Life in Fayetteville are victims of lease renewal disputes between owners of eateries and owners of the buildings. The restaurant owners claim they will reopen at new locations in the future.

Or victims of not paying their rent...

I'm surprised the marketplace express lasted as long as it did...  I've been there a few times and unfortunately NEVER was treated with respect...  Employees were always rude... quit going there maybe 2 years ago..   They will not be missed by me.

I never found the food all that exciting.  Be a good place for a Portillo's if the darned chain would come here where so many Chicagoans are.
