      I'd suggest trying the Ice House in Bentonville. Old ice factory converted to a nice restaurant (great sirloin) with a bar and music stage. I'd choose Oseguera's or La Huerta for Mexican. La Huerta has several locations. Oseguera's has a restaurant in Springdale close to 540 and one in Fayetteville on College.

      The Marketplace in Springdale is good. The same people own a churrascaria type restaurant in Rogers named Brioso Brazil. Great if you're into the whole "eating various meats until you pass out" kind of thing.

        I would definatly stear clear of the Ice house, unless you would like cheep overpriced food. They are a great bar and club, but I wouldn't reccomend them for any meal.
        Osagaros is a great place for Mexican food.
        River Grill prefers reservations.
        Ruth's Chris is fabulous
        Shogun gives you a great show with good Japanese food.
        Anything out at the new Promanade Mall... Granite City, Fish City Grill, PF Changs
        Crabby's just opened up near Village on the Creeks, it's fantastic!
        Good luck!

      2. River Grill - Classy, expensive (exit 88 then east)
        Basil Asia - Thai, excellent food, plain furnishings (Walton Blvd just north of Wal-Mart HQ)
        Abuelo's - Upscale Mexican (Walton Blvd South, exit 85 then east)
        Carino's - Italian (Restaurant Row, exit 85 then east then left)

        Pepper Jack - Big burritos (102 & Moberly, exit 86)
        Moe's - Big burritos (Walton Blvd at Rainbow Curve)
        Simon's Pancake House - Coffee shop, breakfast (Moberly at Walton South)
        Maria's - Mexican, popular with locals (Walton South in Rogers)
        Jimmy John - Sandwiches (across the street from WM HQ)

        1. You could also try the Sanctuary - relatively new place on the Bentonville square. Extensive wine list, mixed menu, superb desserts. In Fayetteville, Ella's in a historic building on campus, has a lovely atmosphere and very good food - the artichoke soup is a favorite. And if you want some local color ask for directions to the Monte Ne Chicken House.

            When we were last in Bentonville, we ate a wonderful dinner at Doe's Eat Place. Huge steaks, very good tamales - most dinners are enough for two.

          2. Just over 3 miles from Wal-mart HQ is Whole Hog Cafe
            at: 1400 SE Walton Blvd. Take a right turn at the light by Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. It is in the row of shops behind KKD.

            At whole hog we are talking BBQ done low & slow served in simple surroundings. You might hear some blues.

            You should order the potato salad.

            1. Down in Johnson next to Springdale is JAmes at the Mill.
