You start the thread, but don't give us yours? That's a difficult question, lots of choices here in Jonesboro, but I guess if I was picking just one, Omar's Uptown.

No, can't say I've ever been to Hector, unless I was lost and passed through.

The little café is pretty good. Always grab a milkshake there when I go to my cabin.

Depends on what you like really, I'd say Unami's in RussVegas, followed by La Chiquita.


For a burger, CJ's. Beats the everlovin' crap out of Whattaburger.

Great Choices but if you are hungry for a steak and are headed down 55 through Mississippi hit up Como's steakhouse in Como, Miss. 32 ounce porter house for around $34.95. They butcher and age their own beef. I would put them up against anyone in the good old USA and yep baked potato, bread, and salad is included.

Yeah, Omar's is a little more stuffy, but basically the same food at both.

I enjoyed the Rendezvous years ago, not so much these days. I prefer Central BBQ, and for a steak, Folks Folly.

Como steakhouse is very good and worth it if in that area. Rendezvous is OK but better BBQ can be found in Memphis all day long. I favorite place to eat in Memphis is Second Line or Lafayette room.

I haven't eaten at the Wilson Cafe in years, I know they've revitalized it in the past few, but was good. Sorry, I'm not a fan of the Dixie Pig, I might have caught them on a bad night as one can do with BBQ joints.

Not a fan. They buy their meat pre-smoked, and more or less heat it up on a smoker.

Yeah, it was more of a fried catfish/seafood special place when I first went in the 80's. I enjoy good food, it doesn't matter if it's home style or fancy cuisine, as long as it's good. I haven't been to Wilson since Gaylon bought the town, and the few acres surrounding it.

I don't know that I've eaten Fat Daddy's BBQ, but I go there a lot - the Coconut Shrimp is awesome.  They need to just take BBQ off the name (downtown anyway).  We have so many new places to eat.  We should do a review.  HF have you ever eatin at Chico's (Center Valley mom n pop)?  Oh add Taco Villa on 4th...
