Anyone have any new suggestions in Hot Springs?

We are going to be in Hot Springs this weekend and after a fairly disastrous culinary experience last year, I'm hoping that someone will have some good ideas for dinner Saturday night and Sunday night. We'll probably try the Back Porch, as we had some good steaks there the year before last. No limit on fancy or simple, or any limit on cuisines, just good food of any kind. Please!

    Hi! Which places did you try on your last trip that turned out to be a disaster?

      We went to the place where 3 monkeys used to be on Central just south of the park, and the Japanese restaurant on 78(? on Broadway) . We had a pretty good burger at the biker bar on central in downtown

      Drive into Marshall and eat the French Broad Taqueria. Best food around, hands down.

        I guess I need to specify that I'm talking about Hot Springs, Arkansas

        I had a good meal at Pompeii Cafe a few years ago. It was sort of nouvelle-Italian cuisine. It's by the race track and is a little off the beaten path (i.e., not in the downtown area).

          McClards and Rolands for BBQ. 2 different styles.
          My folks used to go to Coy's Steakhouse during racing season. Not sure if it's still around.

            I love visiting Hot Springs! My husband and i had a great experience at J & S Italian Villa...the view is wonderful. I've never been to McClard's, but it is kinda famous. I've seen it featured on a view national television shows. We tried Coy's one time and weren't impressed.

              aww i missed out on telling you...but the all you can eat country buffet at the whistle stop after church sunday (or when you wake up hungover) is really good in the traditional sunday buffet sense...not gonna win any michelin stars but everything is consistently well prepared. mcclard's is pretty good...some like the spread or half spread, i liked the ribs...tamales aren't all that great really. too wet.
