Restaurant Development in NW Arkansas

Recommended Posts


Is that what's in progress south of Pinnacle Station? I thought it might be.

I think so. I haven't been over on 45th in ages.

Also, I've been told that Chick-Fil-A is about to break ground on the Bentonville location off Walton.

Oh yeah! I totally forgot all about Jack in the Box. I love their burgers. It's a lot better than anything we've got here. First time I had one was in Houston. Wow, I fell in love with just one bite. ^_^ I might be overexaggerating but oh well.

In-n-Out would be nearly impossible to replicate anywhere outside of the California, Arizona, Southern Nevada area due to the year around local availability of so many of the produce products they use. You could have lower quality stuff (like most other fast food chains) or equal or near equal quality but higher prices, but not anything quite like In-n-Out.

As far as I can tell Carls Jr and Hardees are the exact same. Here in Oklahoma we have Carls Jr and I can't tell any difference.

Just like Rally's and Checker's - same food, different names.

Yes, In & Out just recently branched out to Las Vegas.

And you are right about why they won't franchise or move too far from the left coast.

Not only is the food really good and consistent, they pay their employees a little better than most fast food and the service is always spot-on, courteous, fast and excellent.

Its the king of fast food burger joints IMHO.

I'll take Carl's Jr. over Hardees any day. All the Hardees I've been to, including the one in Fiesta Square, were nasty.

Yeah, that is a nasty one. I knew a couple of really good ones back years ago, but not seen too many these days.

Here is an updated picture of the New Shogun's in Fayetteville. It is a very interesting building and it is going to be a very large restaurant at over 10,500 sq ft.

Thanks for the pic Colby. I have been by to see the progress but without a computer I can't download pics and upload them to the internet right now.

I'm not real big on fast food burgers but I haven't really understood the whole Hardee's/Carl's Jr thing. I believe they're the same company but the ones out west are Carl's Jr and the ones in this part of the country are Hardee's. I guess at some point they were probably different companies but for some reason don't want to change the name in either area of the country.

Hmmm...the last I heard, it was September. But, maybe I missed an update. Wonder when they'll be starting on the Red Lobster?

Granite City is getting underway at Sullivan's old spot.

And the official OG website now says August for Rogers.

Hunan Manor opened this week and every time I drove in front of it, it was packed and the drive through was slammed. The front ultimately turned out better than I had thought. A friend of mine when through their grand opening tour and she said the inside is quite nice.

Now if we could only get a Chinese delivery service, those are pretty much taken for granted in most decent size cities, yet we still don't have one that I know of...

I am with you there. I think that Fayetteville has to be the largest city in the county with no Chinese delivery. Unless something has changed in the past year and I don't know about it. You would think that it would be smart with the University here.

I wasn't aware there was no Chinese delivery here. That's bizzare. Not to sound condescending, but even Mtn. Home had Chinese delivery restaurants, so I just assumed we had it here.

I'm pretty sure there's a few in Benton Co. that offer delivery. Score one for Benton Co. :rofl:

It looks like Smokey Bones in Fayetteville is closed.

Noticed that. It's not from lack of business. From what I understand, they have no managment to run the place. Interviews are scheduled to take place May 15th, so hopefully it's a temporary situation.

Weird I hadn't heard about Smoky Bones. Oseguerra's in Fayetteville is moving from the old Fazoli's spot to Evelyn Hills. I've wondered how business has been for it. I think it might be moving to the back corner of Evelyn Hills so I'm not sure if it's going to be very visible. This move might not help it out much.
