This is kind of a dated, ramshackle building -- the restrooms are in a building that is attached to the main building -- that houses one of the real gems among restaurants in Arkansas. The food is inexpensive and terrific and plentiful. Try the fried chicken and spaghetti. All of the food comes with very basic salads as well as... More

I have heard about this place for so long. It is located in the Tontitown which was settled by Italians. So I thought they had to live up to their reputation. Eeeeks The salad was really wet and you did not get a choice of dressing. Just whatever they call that. Nothing but wet iceberg lettuce with this vinegar something... More

This restaurant has the best spaghetti and chicken dinners in NWA. Been around for a very long time. The line is usually very long for dinner, so be prepared to wait

We love this place! As long time customers we come back whenever we are in NW Arkansas. We always have the Special, which includes spaghetti, ravioli, fried chicken, a side salad, and the best rolls ever!. The portions are very generous, so a couple can split the Special and have all you can handle. We also ordered the onion rings... More

The salad... More

After school back in 1950's we would head to Tontitown for the best food in the world. Still the same. Best fried chicken, steaks, spaghetti, salad, rolls in the world.

Best spaghetti in area. Always order half order and still too much. Very generous in food portion. Delicious and very filling. Salad is wonderful and home made rolls are out of this world. Must get there early or there is a long wait. Would recommend to anyone !
