West Little Rock Dining Guide 

Like its shopping options, West Little Rock offers visitors seemingly endless dining choices. So no matter your taste—from first-rate prime rib, pasta, tempura shrimp to Thai ginger noodles or Indian samosas—you're sure to find it in West Little Rock.


A vast menu of burgers, sandwiches, salads, pastas and appetizers, served in a pleasant setting. 12110 Chenal Pkwy. 954-8444

Restaurateur Jerry Barakat brings the classic New York steakhouse formula to Chenal Valley. The main event is prime beef, or even more expensive Australian wagyu beef. The steak's crusty on the outside, just right on the inside. There's a wide choice of seafood, too. The truffle fries are spectacular. Good wine list. 27 Rahling Circle. 821-1848

What could be mundane fare gets delightful twists and embellishments here. Embassy Suites Hotel. 11301 Financial Centre Pkwy. 312-9000

Charcoal-grilled burgers, hamburger steaks and steaks proper are the big draws at this local institution. 10907 N. Rodney Parham Rd. 228-7800

One of the better lunch plates in the area—maybe the best fried chicken and pot roast around, and a changing daily casserole and tasty homemade pies. 301 N. Shackleford Rd. 224-9500

The crispy-off-the-griddle cheeseburger and hand-cut fries star at this family-friendly stop. 400 N. Bowman Rd. 224-0012

A lot has changed since 1981, when the Little Rock location debuted. The menu has expanded, but choose a steak and let the pros cook it. You'll be glad you did. 10825 Hermitage Rd. 312-2748

CAFÉ 201
This West Little Rock restaurant, located inside the Crowne Plaza Hotel, offers classic American cuisine that includes an excellent steak choice. Locals and guests alike will enjoy the friendly service in a sophisticated atmosphere. Markham and Shackleford. 223-3000

Come for the coffee, but stay for the lunchtime sandwiches and desserts. 17200 Chenal Pkwy. 821-7747

This sunny bakery is a great place to linger over a latte, bagels and the New York Times. But a lunchtime dash for sandwiches is OK, too. 270 S. Shackleford Rd. 224-1656

The full-service restaurant chain started by the founder of Popeye's delivers the same good biscuits. You can eat red beans and rice for a price in the single digits or pay nearly $40 for a choice slab of ribeye, with crab, shrimp and fish in between. 2602 S. Shackleford Rd. 312-1616

A great variety of sandwiches, meal-sized salads and homemade soups, many of the items heart-smart. Great desserts, too. 11220 N. Rodney Parham Rd. 225-6893

Abundant vegetable choices that are inexpensive, wholesome, satisfying and dependable, with meats and fresh rolls to match. 10700 Rodney Parham Rd. 224-3728

The Cajun-inspired menu seldom disappoints. Steaks and soaked salads are legendary. Multiple locations, including 400 N. Bowman Rd. 224-3377

Plate lunch spot strong on salads and vegetables, and perfect fried chicken on Sundays. 11121 N. Rodney Parham Rd. 225-4487

Try the Wednesday night bonanza: large, fresh oysters on the half-shell and hefty shrimp for a quarter-a-pop. Rib special on Mondays. 1801 Green Mountain Dr. 225-3768

Fine hams, turkeys and other specialty meats served whole, by the pound or the sandwich. 11121 N. Rodney Parham Rd. 225-2136

Their trademark ham is available by the sandwich, as is the great smoked turkey. There are lots of inexpensive side items and desserts. 9112 N. Rodney Parham Rd. 227-5555

A huge selection of sandwiches (wraps, subs, po' boys and pitas), fresh salads and spuds, as well as red beans and rice and chicken pot pie. Plus a large selection of heart-healthy dishes. 301 N. Shackleford Rd. 954-8700

  • World leaders set to meet in Little Rock on resource access and sustainable development

    Next week a series of meetings on the use of technology to tackle global problems will be held in Little Rock by Club de Madrid — a coalition of more than 100 former democratic former presidents and prime ministers from around the world — and the P80 Group, a coalition of large public pension and sovereign wealth funds founded by Prince Charles to combat climate change. The conference will discuss deploying existing technologies to increase access to food, water, energy, clean environment, and medical care.
  • Rapert compares Bill Clinton to Orval Faubus

    Sen. Jason Rapert (R-Conway)  was on "Capitol View" on KARK, Channel 4, this morning, and among other things that will likely inspire you to yell at your computer screen, he said he expects someone in the legislature to file a bill to do ... something about changing the name of the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport.
  • Fake news

    So fed up was young Edgar Welch of Salisbury, N.C., that Hillary Clinton was getting away with running a child-sex ring that he grabbed a couple of guns last Sunday, drove 360 miles to the Comet Ping Pong pizzeria in Washington, D.C., where Clinton was supposed to be holding the kids as sex slaves, and fired his AR-15 into the floor to clear the joint of pizza cravers and conduct his own investigation of the pedophilia syndicate of the former first lady, U.S. senator and secretary of state.
  • Reality TV prez

    There is almost nothing real about "reality TV." All but the dullest viewers understand that the dramatic twists and turns on shows like "The Bachelor" or "Celebrity Apprentice" are scripted in advance. More or less like professional wrestling, Donald Trump's previous claim to fame.
