Favorite Fayetteville Food Spots

Written By Michael Paladino 18 Jun 2014

We can talk about food all day every day here at CS, especially when it comes to southern cooking!  We've come up with a list of a few of our favorite southern style restaurants right here in Fayetteville from the best fired catfish to our favorite pulled pork sandwiches!

1. The Farmer's Table aims to support our local farmers and to provide our community with fresh, comfortable foods that are healthy for both our bodies and our local food economy.  They serve the kind of food that you grew up eating.  At The Farmer's Table, ingredients are brought straight from the farm to your table, providing options that are affordable, convenient and above all, delicious!  This is a restaurant were "locals meet and eat"! (Located at 1079 S. School Ave., Fayetteville, AR)

2. At the Catfish Hole you will find the best fired catfish in all of Northwest Arkansas!  And trust us when we say, you will not leave hungry!  As soon as you are seated, your table is met with hot, fresh hush puppies, pickles, coleslaw, onions, lemons, and green tomato relish!  The best part is, they just keep em' coming! (Located at 4127 W. Wedington Dr, Fayetteville, AR)

3. Sassy's Red House came to life by finding the perfect BBQ sauce.  Sassy Jones BBQ sauce is made the traditional southern way and is the best around!  This sauce has been passed down for generations and goes great on just about anything!  Sassy's strives to offer a BBQ place for everyone to enjoy so they offer a wide variety of options on their menu! (Located at 708 N. College Ave., Fayetteville, AR)

4. Penguin Ed's has been satisfying and impressing their guests for over 16 years and has received several awards for their barbecue.  Part of what makes Ed’s so great is the slow, hickory-enhanced method for smoking meats.  The restaurant started in a tent, then moved to a trailer, and now has 3 restaurant locations in Fayetteville!

5. Momma Dean's is a soul food kitchen in, yes, that's right, a food truck!  They offer the best down-home cooking around in large portions right out of their truck window.  You can catch Momma Dean's in the new Shultertown Food Truck Garden on Dickson Street in Fayetteville! 

6. In 1929, P.M Pace bought the place where Herman's Ribhouse stands today.  Here, he built a house, raised livestock, and farmed the land.  In 1946, a Fayetteville native named Herman Tuck opened what we know today as Herman's Ribhouse.  Back then the menu had 9 options: Rack O'Ribs, Plate O'Ribs, BBQ Chicken, a large T-bone, and 5 sandwiches.  Herman's has had many different owners since Tuck but still remains to sell the same great food with with more than 9 options!
