This restaurant is set inside an old airplane, that could be really neat since you can let the kids see and sit inside the cockpit but for a restaurant it is very dirty. The food is very pricey and not good at all. School grade...More

We took a day trip based on reviews and a FB article about unique places to eat in AR. It is unique and kind of cool to eat in an old 737. That said the rest of the place is old and run down which...More

Got there about 1:30 so the grills were off but we had chicken sandwiches. But glad we stopped because the kids got to play in the cockpit and the pictures were great. Waitress was very friendly.

Cool concept. Would have loved to have eaten there if we had not already had lunch prior to stumbling on this gem.

Small family restaurant off the beaten path but worth the visit! Great for kids and young at heart! Eat in the regular restaurant or on the attached full size airplane that has been converted into a restaurant. Original airplane seats, cockpit, etc. Kids and adults...More

I'm not real sure why you are asking me instead of calling the restaurant. We were just visitors to the restaurant ourselves as we traveled thru the area. Their number is 870-886-5918.
