Lightbulb New Restaurants needed for NW Arkansas?

What new restaurants would you like to see come into NWA?

A bunch of good restaurants just opened, or are about to open.

I'd like to see "Jack in the Box" & more Chinese places.

You guys need a Popeye's Chicken. The only one I've ever found is on the outskirts of Pine Bluff, on the way to Little Rock. My (picky) kids both love Popeye's and it's never available as a choice when we're at the cabin and out loafing around.

Of course, I've not been in Fayetteville/Springdale very much, and never in Rogers, Bentonville, but I never saw one up there before.

Nah, NWA doesn't need new restaurants, it needs for people to start cooking at home more often! That way when they do go out to eat, they aren't tired of the "same ole thing" and will enjoy whatever options they have! I know when my family has to eat out a lot (which happens with work, school, and sports), we get to where nothing sounds good...but give us a few weeks of not eating out and suddenly our eat out options sound good again. It's the old saying about wanting what you don't have until you have it kind of thing. I mean seriously, how many restaurants does this country need?

I'm not sure about the other cities, but Rogers has a Popeye's.

NWA needs more local restaurants unique to the area. Anywhere in the USA has the Red Lobsters, Olive Gardens, and PF Changs. I'll take an authentic restaurant over a chain any day.

I agree, but I also think there are plenty of places to eat in NWA.

We've got one in Russellville, on Parkway.

I was really happy when we got it. I'm from the Deep South (Mississippi) and I've been jonesing for it since I was younger.

We actually had Popeye chicken for dinner one Thanksgiving about 20 plus years ago. We were living in No Va, I had won a free Turkey from one of the local grocery stores: well I picked it up the night before Thanksgiving, defrosted it overnight and guess what, Thanksgiving morning I took it out of the plastic bag and it was spoiled..Well, Thanksgiving isn't the day to try and find a store that is open, so, we had a couple of choices: we decided to treat our 6 guests and ourselves to some kind of poultry and the only thing we could find was Popeyes!!!

Do you folks in AR have Sonics? If so, how are they? They're building new locations up here in my part of Pennsylvania in 2009. (Bye-bye hopes of six-pack abs! )
