Last week, we checked out what was going on over in Midtown … and now Little Rock Restaurant Month starts in West Little Rock. Remember, instead of participating restaurants from all over the city offering specials throughout the entire month, different areas of the city each get a week of specials. August 15-21 marks WLR’s turn. Below, you’ll find a complete listing, as well as a few of my takes…
$1 off chicken salad & fresh fruit
Big Orange (west location)
Free cheese dip or hummus with purchase of burger
Bobby’s Country Cookin’
$1 off dinner & drink
My take: Nice opportunity to check out Bobby’s if you’ve never done so … the food is solid and the service is fast.
Cantina Cinco de Mayo
Free kid’s meal with purchase of 2 entrees at regular price
My take: This is a very underrated restaurant and a perfect place to take the kiddos to enjoy a good deal … and meal.
Prix fixe, $33 three course meal; starter, entrée, dessert
Casa Manana (west location)
$13.95 pollo chiltepin with Michelada
My take: I’ve never had this dish, but the Michelada, alone, makes it a good deal.
½ off off select appetizers with purchase of entree. Choose from: artichoke & spinach dip, bayou broccoli, Al’s favorite popcorn shrimp, onion mum or crab beignets.
Corky’s Ribs & BBQ
$2 off off Cajun shrimp dinner. Bring this coupon in.
Del Frisco’s Grill
Prix fixe 2-course lunch for $20 or 3-course dinner for $35.
Bogo – buy 3 casseroles, get 1 free.
Five Guys Burgers and Fries
Free award-winning fries with the purchase of a bacon cheeseburger & drink
My take: The fries are pretty damn good … there’s no denying that.
Fonda Tequila Bar
$12 chicken mole plus 1 Dos Equis
My take: The service can be inconsistent at Fonda, but the food is good, and I’m guessing this mole might be worth a visit.
Grady’s Pizza & Subs
25% off a salad or our fresh & delicious pasta dishes. 1 per table, 1 per visit.
$10 sweetie pie – mini pie baked fresh using highest quality seasonal ingredients, topped with house-made fresh whipped cream.
My take: You know I love Honey Pies, so I would definitely recommend taking advantage of this deal. If you’ve never been to the newly opened shop, this is a perfect opportunity to try out the goods without committing to an entire (bigger) pie.
$14.95 – 14” pizza up to 3 toppings with a side of Razorback sticks with cheese
Layla’s (west location)
$7.25 gyro sandwich with fries and drink
My take: You already know Layla’s is great, and this is a solid deal.
15% off any sandwich or entrée.
My take: Here’s another very underrated restaurant that doesn’t get a ton of publicity. The wings here are some of the best in town.
Lilly’s Dim Sum Then Some
$10 hotiyaki wings & beer
$14.50 candied bacon & peach pancake with fresh-squeezed orange juice mimosa
Free cheese dip or salsa trio with purchase of an entrée or salad.
My take: While the cheese deep is nice, in my opinion, the salsa trio is definitely the way to go. And make sure you get the chipotle, tres chiles, and zucchini.
$10 14” pizza* (Monday)
Additional offers: Tuesday: buy one/get one* Wednesday: pasta specials* Thursday: kids eat free* *see server for details.
My take: Some of the better pizza in Little Rock, but probably doesn’t get a ton of attention because of its far WLR location.
Ocean at Arthur’s
Bogo – buy any 2 entrees or specialty sushi, get 1 dessert. Valid up to $9. Dine-in, dinner only.
Bogo – buy one small cheese dip with dinner, get a second cheese dip free.
Bogo – buy 1 entree at regular price, get the second 1/2 price. Not valid with other specials.
Sky Modern Japanese
Bogo – buy 1 appetizer, get 1 half off. Also: $5 featured cocktails
Taziki’s Mediterranean Café
Free child’s feast with purchase of adult entree. Dine-in only.
My take: My kids love Taziki’s … probably one of their top 5 spots in town.
The Butcher Shop
$19.95 12-oz. ribye dinner with salad & potato
My take: Solid seems to be the overwhelming theme of this post. The Butcher Shop gives you a nice bang for your buck with this $20 steak deal.
The Main Cheese
25% off total bill. Lunch & dinner
My take: I’ve never been to The Main Cheese, but 25% off your total bill makes this one of the best deals of the week.
Free appetizer. Mention “Little Rock Restaurant Month” to receive offer. 1 per table, dinner only.
My take: I’m not sure if this is a specific, pre-selected appetizer, but they’re all great, so it’s worth it.
The Purple Cow
Free soft drink or tea with any of our new menu items. New items include: supreme cheeseburger, turkey pesto burger, & black bean burger, just to name a few.
The Tavern Sports Grill
$15 half rack ribs, coleslaw & baked beans with Flyway Migrate
My take: The Flyway Migrate makes this a solid deal.
