With a slogan of “Where the New South Meets the Old West,” Fort Smith, despite being the second-largest city in Arkansas, has a small town feel full of rich heritage and diverse culture. From the creative street art to the varying cuisines, this town has certainly embraced it’s colorful heritage!

The food at Rolando’s is DIVINE…but it’s truly the people who make this place so special! Rolando himself created almost all the art that adorns the walls, giving the whole restaurant that personal touch. The manager, Scott, and the entire staff make you feel like family as soon as you enter the building. If you go, ask for Vince as your server, you’ll be happy you did!

The Taliano’s tradition lies in the Italian passion for family, friends, and fine food.  In 1970, childhood friends Tom Caldarera, Jr. and Jim Cadelli turned to a love they both knew well, good authentic Italian food. Their guidance was the advice of their mothers, “If you are going to do Italian food, you have to do it the truly authentic Italian way.” Since then, two generations of Caldareras and Cadellis have spent hours in the kitchen perfecting the sauces and handmade pastas that have become the cornerstone of the dishes served at Taliano’s Italian Restaurant!

Calico County has been whipping up American classics since 1984, boasting Traditional American Food served in an atmosphere full of American Memories. With staples like Chicken Fried Steak, Meat Loaf, Catfish, and Fried Green Tomatoes…you’re sure to feel like you’re sittin’ down at Grandma’s house for supper.

Seriously. If you’re on the hunt for delicious, truly authentic Vietnamese food hunt no longer because this is THE place to go. If you order the spring rolls make sure to ask for a side of peanut sauce, it’s incredibly fresh and flavorful.

The eclectic menu at 21 West End is best described as a fusion of classic traditional recipes and modern creativity. The building’s history and architecture alone is enough to hold anyone’s attention, but the food itself is something truly beautiful to behold. The Chicken Oscar was worth the trip alone and you will not find better cheesecake in the city.
