Silk Road Restaurant

Restaurant | "Silkroad"

Quote:
As far as Chinese Buffets go, it's not bad. It's not great either. Their buffet is smaller than most, but the waitstaff is friendly, and it's great if you just want a quick meal. Not the best, but not horrible either.

Wendy's Old Fashion Hamburgers

Restaurant | "Wendy's"

Quote:
The Wendy's in Bentonville always has fast service and good food. Exactly what you could ask for in a fast food place. It can be dirty at particular times of day. This is probably due to the rush of people, and the workers don't have a ton of time to clean up. Still a good place though.

Subway

Restaurant

Quote:
Good food and fast. Clean place, though a bit small, so it's best to just take it and go, as parking is horrible. It's also one of the only Subways in town, so if you like them, you want to go to this one.

Ruby Tuesday

Restaurant

Quote:
This restaurant used to be a lot better. Now, it's hardly ever busy and its service has gone down hill. The food is OK, but not the best place to get a meal in Bentonville.

Acambaro's is by far the best place in NWA to get Mexican food. The salsa and chips alone could fill you up and make this restaurant a 5-star review. But add the yummy fajita salad and chicken enchiladas, and you have an out of this world experience! With so many branches of this restaurant in the surrounding area (there are two alone in Bentonville), you can never miss out on the great food and atmosphere while in northwest Arkansas.

An awesome place to get coffee (hot or cold) and a great dessert. The atmosphere is perfect for relaxing with your drink or chatting with some friends. I highly recommend the Velvet Elvis and the Chocolate Mousse. Excellent!

Waffle House

Restaurant

Quote:
I love Waffle House! It's greasy and artery clogging, but it's such good food. I usually get the grilled cheese and hash browns chunked and smothered. It's amazing food for cheap. The only downside is that you have to pay in cash, something that can take a person off guard if they're not ready for it.

Sonic Drive-In

Restaurant | "Sonic Drive In"

Quote:
I love Sonic and all its drive-in goodness. There are a variety of foods to try and all of them are good. The drinks are amazing and whether you want a slushie, milkshake, or just a plain soda (they even have flavors to add in if you don't want it plain), they are always incredible. Fast and reliable service.
