The Front Porch in Yellville is a great restaurant. If they use Sysco, you can't tell it.

That will be difficult to find in this day and age, especially in cookie cutter places like NWA. Bennigans, Applebees, Chilis, Fridays, Outback, etc, etc, etc is all the same crap in a different package. And they charge a downright fortune. $12 for a crappy burger? Come on!

The latest I had heard is that Cheesecake Factory had backed out of it's plan to come to NWA. Have they changed their minds again?

$12.00 for a feaking burger ! yikes. I go to a little place in my state and my wife and I split an order of fries and we get a chargrilled cheeseburger each and the total bill is under 6 bucks. The place is not a chain but chain restaurants can have good food at times.

I can't believe that people want more chain restaurants, disgusting! I can't even remember the last time I had any fast food. I've never been on the Arkansas thing before. Why wouldn't you want good local restaurants that use fresh food, and no that does not mean they are exspensive. Fast food does not even taste good to me. Besides the fact that it's probably the culprit for this obesity crisis. Okay I have been to the cheesecake factory a couple of times but, seriously?

I would like more and better chinese and Indian food. Some health food places wouldn't hurt. I love the fried stuff, but you need a break sometimes. Homestyle stuff is good too.

I would like to see some health food here in Little Rock too. We have absolutely nothing here either. Us people in the south love our fattening foods.

For healthy eating that supports organic and locally produced products, try Greenhouse Grille next time your in Fayetteville. From Arkansas shrimp to organic vegetables to free range and naturally raised meats to organic beers / wines, this place is unique and worth a try. www.greenhousegrille.com
