The buffet is loaded with salads, sides, deserts and yes, catfish and shrimp. AND, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, All You Can Eat Buffet including drink for only $9.99. You can't beat a deal like that for great food.

Ron has the best catfish of anywhere in Arkansas, that we have tried. It is always great, and his bar is always full. If you leave hungry,it is your own fault. Now I do have one complaint. I've always loved his coleslaw. The last few...More
