Big Orange Midtown

The Big Orange Midtown restaurant might seem like just another fast food diner at the corner at first glance, but step inside and your opinion will quickly change. The restaurants offers delicious burgers like the white truffle and pecorino, the petit jean bacon and cheddar, and the best of all, atom bomb: jack cheese, pickled jalapeno, butter leaf lettuce, sriracha and chipotle-red pepper mayo, are definitely worth trying. Aside from the main menu of burgers, you can choose lighter meals from their starters, salads and sides.

Crazee’s Cool Cafe

Crazee’s Cool Cafe has a typical café-restaurant that offers excellent beers, yummy burgers, friendly staff and a very easy to find location. The relaxed ambiance makes for a good time spent with your friends or family. It could be smoky at times, but if that does not bother you, you won’t regret that you stopped by Crazee’s Cool Cafe.

Taziki’s Mediterranean Cafe

If you are looking for a typical Greek restaurant, then Taziki’s Mediterranean Cafe is the perfect place to go. Their outside seating presents you with a Greek-style summer restaurant where only the sound of the Aegean is missing. Made with fresh ingredients and authentic Greek recipes, with plenty of care, their menu is full of delicious choices. Anything from the gyros to the sides or dinners for four will give you a true taste of a typical Mediterranean café.

The Purple Cow Restaurant

The Purple Cow Restaurant in Midtown, Little Rock is well worth stopping by. The interior expresses a mixture of imagination, quality and uniqueness. Keeping an Arkansas tradition alive since 1989, they offer some of the greatest shakes and malts you have ever tasted. If you love trying new drinks, then their drinks for grownups will definitely satisfy your adventurous spirit. Worth trying are the mudslide, the grasshopper made out of mint chocolate chip ice cream with shots of creme de menthe and creme de cacao, as well as their Irish coffee. They also have a rich selection of kids meals and drinks, as well as gifts.

All Aboard Restaurant & Grill

Have you ever enjoyed a train ride so much you didn’t want to get off at the end? The All Aboard Restaurant & Grill is a family-owned restaurant that serves fresh food, in a unique way, via the All Aboard train. The freshly made food, often with locally and organically grown ingredients, is served to you through a complex, but memorable, rail system. Their strawberry salad is to die for.

Cantina Laredo

The Cantina Laredo is a modern Mexican restaurant located in Midtown, Little Rock. The owners have thought about every detail and offer you lunch, dinner, special Sunday brunch, a kids and a bar menu, along with happy hour. All food is prepared home-style and will give you a true taste of Mexico. The friendly staff and soft ambiance of the place will make your visit even better.

Newk’s Eatery

The founders of Newk’s Eatery find joy in re-modifying old recipes and blending them with a new and exciting taste of today’s popular meals. They don’t believe in pre-chopped, pre-sliced or precooked, so everything you get is fresher than fresh. Their dedication to their guests and passion for food is easily recognizable in all of the meals. The shrimp and avocado salad, the triple take salad, even the German chocolate cake, or the chocolate or red velvet whoopie pie are to die for, and chances are you will return to Newk’s again on your way out of Little Rock.
