Where to Eat in Conway: The Best Restaurants and Bars

April 14, 2018 Velvet Champine

Conway is a city in the American state of Arkansas and the county seat of Faulkner County, located in the state's most populous Metropolitan Statistical Area, Central Arkansas. Although sometimes considered a suburb of Little Rock, Conway is unique in that the majority of its residents do not commute out of the city to work. The city also serves as a regional shopping, educational, work, healthcare, sports, and cultural hub for Faulkner County and surrounding areas. Conway's growth can be attributed to its jobs in technology and higher education with its largest employers being Acxiom, the University of Central Arkansas, Hewlett Packard, Hendrix College, Insight Enterprises, and many technology start up companies. Conway is home to three post-secondary educational institutions, earning it the nickname "The City of Colleges".

This is my favorite place in Conway. The service and food are always great! I recently tried the Cajun Seafood Alfredo dish and it was really good. Great place for a date night!

David's Burgers

Reviewed By Jeff C - Irving

This was the first time I'd been in Conway and David's was recommended by the customer I was visiting. When I got to the restaurant, the manager, Caitlyn, was cleaning the door glass and pushed the door open, with a friendly greeting, as I entered. Then she came and took my order. While I waited for my burger, Courtney and several other girls came by the table asking if I needed anything, The burger was delicious and the fries were pretty good, too. Probably one of the best "fast food" experiences I've had in a long time.

Zaza Fine Salad & Wood Oven Pizza Co.

Reviewed By Jon M - Little Rock, Arkansas

The bar side of the restaurant is very nice and the service was excellent. Several TV’s and stool seating. The restaurant section is somewhat lacking tho there is one big table then prob 6 small (4 seats). Chairs are not comfortable. Our first pizza was delivered luke warm... it was good but just not oven hot fresh!! When it comes out of the oven it should be served immediately.... I think it sat for 5 minutes. The Salads were very good tho. If not for superior Salads I would have only given it an average rating and that would have been generous. If you have a person requiring wheelchair or a person with limited physical abilities look else where... I did not see any way in or out without stairs (or at least one large step up/down).....

MarketPlace Grill

Award winning polished casual American restaurant featuring homemade recipes and outstanding service!

Reviewed By geoffrey530 - Conway, Arkansas

Our family has eaten at marketplace many times before. The service has always been excellent. This time our server was Tanner. This young man provided the best service, hands down, of any restaurant I’ve ever been to. He answered all of our questions, checked on us constantly, and never let our drinks go dry. He even made sure to play along with my daughter acting like a princess since it was her birthday! Our food came out wonderful as always. I will be specifically requesting for this young man for now on.

Cracker Barrel

Half Restaurant. Half Store. All Country

Reviewed By ucatraveler - conway, ar

Cracker Barrel is my "staple" restaurant. They have so many things on the menu and their is never a lack of choices. There is something to please everyone in the family, even the picky eaters. The wait staff is always accommodating and helpful and the service is always pretty fast. I had the roast beef dinner tonight with mashed potatoes and corn and a fresh fruit bowl. Half and Half tea was my choice beverage. It was served warm and delicious. It did seem a little noisy tonight; however, we had a group of 10 and it was pretty busy. The restaurant and restrooms are always clean and there is a very nice gift shop to browse through if you get there on a very busy evening and have to wait. They also serve breakfast and lunch. Definitely recommend this place and it is easy to access from Interstate 40.

Whole Hog Cafe

Reviewed By AllOver1 - Orange Beach, Alabama

They offer many options on their menu, plates, sandwiches, by the pound... I had 2 meat plate with pulled pork and sausage. Pork was very good, sausage was ok. I had sides of slaw and beans. Beans were very good. Other in our party had pulled pork and chicken with beans and potato salad, which he said was very good. A German style potato salad. There are six sauces to choose from. I like the southern style vinegar with some spice. Depending on your preference all sauces were very good. Self service type restaurant. Order at counter, fix your drink and they call your order number when food is ready.

Cross Creek Sandwich Shop

Reviewed By wmld3 - Katy, Texas

Came here strictly on the reviews... Just disappointed. Ordered the chicken salad sandwich with fruit. Everything looked nice. The bread was not soft, almost dry and stale. There was a good amount of chicken salad on the sandwich, just very dry and no taste. Fruit was fresh except for the grapes. A few were starting to rot on the ends. I expected more from this place. Maybe I ordered the wrong thing??
