Skinny J's

Reviewed By gary c

Saturday night $10 bucket good deal had the old flame burger along with the side salad for an extra 1.50 Burger was good it was just not enough meat maybe a quarter pound but for 11.00 I expect a burger not a skinny patty.Skinny J needs a thicker burger. Also one point deduction for a bathroom disaster. Taking a date to skinny’s and having her use that rat hole of a bathroom is just wrong

Lazzari Italian Oven

Reviewed By Amelia A

The price of the food is great. You can't beat it really for Italian food. The quality, however, can be beat. Not to say that it is bad by any means but in comparison with an Olive Garden, Macaroni Grill, or Carrabbas it is a step behind.

3. Chick-fil-A

Chick-fil-A

Reviewed By TravelTravel60 - Florida

This is the busiest Chixk-fil-A I've ever seen. Drive up line extended around far exterior of property (?30-40 cars). Employees were outside with an electronic pad taking orders so it would be ready for pickup by the time they got to window. Inside line was long but multiple order takers made it fast. Food quality did not suffer.

Omar's Uptown

Jonesboro Arkansas' premiere fine dining establishment. Featuring an excellent wine list, and prime steaks.

Reviewed By Smbrooke

My son and I ate dinner there last week. Food was excellent, especially the jambalaya and stuffed portobello. There are other vegetarian options, including several salads. The lighting is subdued, waitstaff courteous and attentive. Also, they make a proper Old Fashioned.

Sue's Kitchen

Reviewed By ritarealtor - Arkansas

Great food and excellent service as well! I had the chicken spaghetti with green beans, salad and roll--great flavor and well prepared. Our waitress was just the right amount of attentive without being intrusive. Parking can be difficult depending on time of day--we parked across the street. Love the building also.

We were having an overnight in Jonesboro. This restaurant was recommended by our hotel. It was within walking distance with good reviews. We were not very hungry so decided to share a meal and bottle of wine. We ordered the ribeye, Med rare, with a whiskey sauce, sides were sweet potato and wild rice. We were very full, in fact too full to consider dessert. During our meal a trio was playing and the female singer her was excellent. Enjoyed the evening, food and entertainment. Our server Was fabulous! She made our evening more fun by her personality and good suggestions.

Ron's catfish buffet

Reviewed By 50yearAG - Springfield, Missouri

If you enjoy "southern fried" catfish with all the other trimmings--hush puppies, shrimp, fries, Cole slaw, etc., etc.--stop at Ron's. Be prepared for a wait line, but it moves quickly as the service is buffet style. Very reasonably priced--includes drink and choice of many desserts. From this "all you care to eat" you will not go away hungry. No elegant/suit-tie place, just a cultural experience with great catfish.

We were trying to find a place outside of town to eat that wasn't a chain type restaurant and we found this one. I had a smoked chicken sandwich and it was really good I've never had one before. Had some rib sandwich and a regular BBQ. Really fast service neat building. Will eat here again.

Stopped at this location for dinner before a football game. Had steaks which were cooked perfectly. Love their baked potatoes. Rolls were good service was ok. location is close to several hotels and to the interstate. Prices are as expected as this is a chain restaurant. It's in Jonesboro will stop again.
