Luigi's Italian Cafe

Reviewed By smackover1112 - Smackover, Arkansas

Really enjoyed our Sunday lunch! My husband's tetrazzini was wonderful, and my pasta with olive oil and fresh garlic and basil was amazing. Their house dressing is the best tomato based vinaigrette ever!!! Finished up with tiramisu that definitely didn't disappoint!!! ❤️ All of this was accompanied by a really talented young man playing piano... we will definitely return!

Dairy Queen

Reviewed By TallTexWally - Texarkana, Texas

This Dairy Queen is located on US 59 on the northwest side of the city of Atlanta, TX. I was headed south and it was easy to get off the highway and pull up to the drive thru window to get a bite to eat. I noticed several big rig trucks were parked in the parking lot, taking up spaces meant for cars. Management should speak to them about not parking in that area. The food was fast and good. The prices are reasonable too. Dairy Queen is a good place for hamburgers, french fries, and ice cream. One thing to note, even though they were open at 10 AM they do not serve breakfast, only their lunch and dinner menu is available.

Rickey's Rib Shack BBQ

Reviewed By SandCHouston - Houston, Texas

The map location was incorrect; we stopped for gas at the Shell station on 59S headed to Houston, asked for lunch recommendations and was told "Rickey's". Surprised, we drove about 0.5 mi in the opposite direction, found "Rickey's" and enjoyed the ribs for lunch.

Reviewed By John S - Atlanta, Texas

Well this is my third review of the Rabit Patch. Time has proved itself and sometimes time makes it better and sometimes not. I will say I still love the establishment's service, cleanliness, nostalgic building and location. But...
The prices have outgrown the food served. It has been about 2 months since our last visit and that time we were like "so so" and this time it was confirmation. Daughter had sliders with fries, wife had chicken salad with pecans and I had the rabid rabbit low carb... we got our food and first off I noticed the meat was so small... like tiny... and with NO BUN meat sauce in a lettuce wrap for 8.50... then I cut it up and it was raw. Checked daughter slider... it was too. So the waitress took them back and had them re cook new ones. So yes they made it right, I'm glad but the fact is my meal alone was 10.00 plus tax and 27.05 for all three. My wife and I only drink water so as a family and from a man that TRAVELS alot.... I get the privilege of going to local hot spots all over this continent and a 8.50 burger elsewhere is more than twice this size. This is not the review I want to give because I WANT to support this restaurant but since March this year we have seen a change in the quantity and quality. It is a great location, wonderful building friendly staff and as clean as you can get but a burger joint HAS TO STAND OUT ABOVE the crowd and it all boils down to the MEAT. I will hope they travel around the ArkLaTex and see what others are doing. I will always try it again because I support our local businesses. This is a picture of my second patty.... and our ticket.

Roux-Ga-Roux Seafood

Reviewed By La Fonda C - Doddridge, AR

So happy to have a Cajun restaurant in our area!
My first visit I ordered a "to go" order of the boiled crawfish, corn & potatoes.
My second & third visits there were with my husband. We repeated the boiled crawfish order and have tried the catfish & alligator.
The crawfish are very well seasoned. They have them by the pound or specials that include corn & potatoes.
I absolutely loved the alligator! Best I have had in years!
The restaurant is decorated really cute. And I LOVE the handwash sink in the middle of the restaurant - a great idea when you are peeling and eating boiled crawfish!
Definitely going back!

My dad and I stopped in here on our way through Atlanta, TX because of the reviews on TripAdvisor. My dad had the bean soup and apple pie. I had spinach quesadilla and flan. All was excellent! The service was very good and friendly. The meal was very inexpensive, too.

Reviewed By TrueTexasTraveler - Amarillo, Texas

Tommy's is by far not the best bbq I've had, but if you enjoy trying different bbq it's definitely worth stopping. Everything was decent. The brisket wasn't too dry, but also didn't have a lot of flavor in the smoke ring. The sausages (try both) were good. While I didn't get desert, some people who came in as I were leaving said they stop at Tommy's just for the desert. Everyone there was very nice and friendly, and their prices are average for Texas BBQ.

Chicken Express

Reviewed By Leslie8937 - Friendswood, Texas

We eat at Chicken Express in Huntsville and were happy to see this one on our trip. I LOVE the fact that the owners PROUDLY display wall hangings of crosses and other Christian artwork in the restaurant. It's nice to see businesses not afraid to do this! The food was wonderful, served fast and hot. We will stop again if we are ever in the area again.

Just average Americanized Mexican food. I guess it's okay for the area, but you'd be better off to make it at home rather than spend the extra money for average food. Not impressed, although the service was extremely friendly and the restaurant clea.

Catfish King

Reviewed By bigspankdaddy - Hanover

Food was fresh and good. Fried catfish dinners is what we got. They are catfish finger type fillets and not big fillets. Slaw and potatoe salad was good. This place was like good old home cooking. I would go again. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
