We just stopped in for lunch and had a Ruben and chicken sandwich. Nothing exceptional and nothing bad. The photography is interesting but feels way over priced.

We had a few drinks, a young waiter and the steaks were made to order! It's not a fancy restaurant but it was clean and the food is some of the best in Mena!

It was 3rd year to visit Mena and the sixth time to eat at the chopping block. I ordered the sweet potato fries Friday night and they were cold and not cooked through. Tonight I had a ribeye and it was horrible. Over cooked and...More
