The battered cheese sticks are without a doubt a great reason to stop in and visit Calico County. Almost everything I have ever tried from the menu is just great comfort food. We always stop when we are coming through Fort Smith.

We like Calico and frequent it often. The rolls they start you off with almost like eating a dessert first. Yummy! We like everything we've eaten here. The prices are great and food is wonderful. The service is good even when they are busy. Highly recommend this local favorite.

I wasn't disappointed. It was a great breakfast that was fast and easy. Homemade to order and probably the best fried steak I may have ever had. Will go back soon and would suggest it to any one as a must stop and try. Enjoy and stay hungry! 😊
