CLOSED: Arkie’s Grill
“Chicken and Dumplings…Home Cooking, Truck Stop, Blue Plate…yeah like that!” Likes it
I have been putting off reviewing Arkie’s for almost two months. The reason was I expected it to be bad at some point…but it just has not been. In fact it keeps holding up to my standards that usually find flaws. Not Arkie’s. They continue to rise above the standard.
I have had Fried Chicken (not breast, 2 peice real bone in), Chicken Fried Steak, Meat Loaf, Pot Roast, Enchiladas, Catfish, Turkey and Dressing (cornbread dressing), Talipia, Chicken and Dumplings, with Green Beans, Okra and Tomatoes, Fried Okra, Brown Beans, Mashed Potatoes, Baked Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes and Corn.
All of it was just good, home cooking.
There is always a variety of specials for food, as well as customers. From cops to zoo keepers, city workers, iron workers, road crews, lawyers, scallywags and scallions. Arkie’s has them all and they seem to love the food.
I am going there for lunch today!
