Welcome to Little Rock Eating!

Little Rock Trolley

This is your guide to low-cost, high-taste eating in Little Rock.

We started this website because we love to try new places to eat around town. The problem is that we don’t have much money, so we can’t afford to waste time going to places with crappy food or bad service. We looked online to find reviews, but they were few and far between. We know that you are out there with the same frustration, so we decided to create the reviews for you.

We are two normal people who do not have a lot of time or money to frequent fancy, expensive restaurants. Ebony recently graduated college, while Mike still has a year to go. This means we have a limited budget, and this is reflected in our opinions of the cost for each restaurant. Most other restaurant reviews are meant for those who can afford to drop $100 on dinner and cocktails. That’s fine, but we want to write for the rest of us. We want to write for the college kids, the single mothers, the real people that keep the world running. This is why we write real reviews for real people.

Each restaurant that we visit gets reviewed on decor, cleanliness, service, cost, and of course, taste. If the restaurant has more than one location, then each location will receive it’s own review as we visit it. This is something we have decided up front because we noticed that locations vary in how they are run. We will describe the meals that we ate along with other favorites that we may have on their menu. Finally, we will give each restaurant an overall rating.

Choose the type of cuisine you are craving from the menu on the right to browse the restaurant reviews or use the search to read about a specific restaurant.

Happy Eating!

  1. what kinda of joke website is this? i think most people know what to expect out of captain Ds or mcdonalds. if you really want to do a service to people why don’t you go to the NON-CHAIN places. you people sound like a bunch of idiots with too much time on your hands. maybe if you got a real job you could afford to eat at the better places in little rock.

  2. There are plenty of non-chain restaurants that we have reviewed. We are also just getting started and have been running for less than a month. We are working on more places.

    The goal of this site is not to give information about a restaurant chain in general, but about each location in particular. For instance, you may not know that the McDonald’s on Markham by Circuit City is a much better place to eat than the one on 12th and Kanis. That is why we review the chain restaurants.

    For the record, we do have real jobs and we will be reviewing the more expensive (or better, as you call them) restaurants in Little Rock as time allows. This website is just a hobby. It is here as a way to help people decide where to eat. If you don’t like it, you can choose to not read it. Nobody forced you to read it. You can start your own and “show us how it’s done”. You could figure out something better to do with YOUR time than to go around writing comments on a website that you hate.

    Good luck to ya!

  3. We apologize for any profanity you may have seen on this site. It seems that this site has come to the attention of the spammers and other Internet low-lifes. We have taken measures to prevent this as much as possible, but things may slip through from time to time. We ask for your patience and help in keeping that kind of stuff off of this site. Thank you.

  4. I actually love this site. Your reviews are great, very detailed, so a visitor will know exactly what to expect. And as for the comments by “leah” I actually appreciate the reviews of the chain restaurants. As Ebony and Mike said, not every chain restaurant is the same so it would be nice to know whether “McDonald’s on Markham by Circuit City is a much better place to eat than the one on 12th and Kanis.” or not. Thanks for checking that out! 🙂

  5. A special thanks to our 1000th reader! This site has far exceeded our expectations. That isn’t bad for 5 weeks of operation and very little advertising. Thanks to everyone for reading. As for the 1000th viewer, we wish we knew who you were. That’s one of the reasons we request and encourage comments. Thanks again!

  6. Thanks for the kind words, Andrea! It’s good to know that we have a fan out there. We love hearing from you all, especially if you want to share your own experiences at these places. We want this to be a website that everyone can participate in making. If you go somewhere and find that something has changed, let us know! Thanks again, Andrea.

  7. It’s about time someone does this. It’s a great idea. Keep up the good work.

  8. Hey you crazy cats – what a great idea, especially as you already have lives & do this ’cause ya can!! Saw your handle on the PCLOS Forum – which I frequent also
    Good Luck!! BR>Jack

  9. You guys should try Arkansas Burger Co on Cantrell for your burgers section. It has been in Southern Living Magazine and is soo good! It is not far from the Cantrell/Mississippi intersection. Thanks for giving us the heads-up on where to eat!

  10. oh and you also gotta try Damgoode Pies on Cantrell. The pizza is awesome and the Razorback bread will make you fall out of your booth!

  11. I LOVE this website!! What an awesome idea. I was nearly in tears laughing while reading the McDonalds on 12th review because it is right down the street from my dance studio, and we couldn’t have described it any better! 2 thumbs up, happy eating!

    so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any points for beginner blog writers? I’d
    really appreciate it.

  23. Thankfulness to my father who stated to me on the topic of this webpage, this blog is really remarkable.

  24. Do you mind if I quote a few of your articles as long as I provide
    credit and sources back to your webpage? My blog site is in the very same area of interest as yours and my visitors would
    certainly benefit from some of the information you provide here.
    Please let me know if this ok with you. Cheers!
