Going to Doe's is a Little Rock Adventure

Have big plans to eat out. Thinking of eating early? Perhaps, take in a movie, comedy show or the theater? Maybe the plan is to eat late after a couple of rounds at the bars and eat big?

Would you like to visit the back alley meeting place, where the walls are lined with memorabilia? Many famous faces are framed. Some photos have autographs.

I finally went to Doe's for the first time tonight! It is pricey for one person as all meals are meant to be shared with at least two people. For die hard singles, who don't mind dining alone...Get an appetizer or two, and a meal to last you through several meals!

I have recommended Doe's Eat Place to many out-of-town visitors in the past. People who could drop a few hundred on their crew for a meaty and filling bunch of food. This is the place for Meat Lover's. The food portions are enormous!

All meals to order are meant to be shared with at least 2 people.

Tonight I ordered 1/2 dozen of the "Doe's Famous Tamales"/w chili. Yep, real chili. No beans. There are several types of hot sauce by Parasol. I liked the Green best. Flavorful but spicy. There are baskets of soda crackers on the tables. Nice wooden tables and wooden, padded chairs.

The service is excellent! ` On the menu is says, if you are new to Doe's they will help you order. I was glad for the help. The salmon looks good, and if I can get someone to split the $40.00 meal, I am sure it will be worth it.

I ordered the Fried Shrimp Dinner. This comes with "soaked oil salad" (iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, purple onions, soaked in Olive Oil)

The dinner also comes with a boiled red potato, in butter. Just right, and able to cut with a soup spoon. Also, French Fries. On a tight budget, I got tea for my drink. I must keep the tab under $30.00, so no beer tonight.

Yes, I will go back. If you have a meat-eater who expends a lot of energy during his day, his is a great place to re-charge him.

My Doggy Box, weighed over 2 lbs. I had tamales, chili, fries and some potato leftover.

Peatey my Grand-dog is negotiating next to the refrigerator for dibs, or will gladly help clean up any accidents or spills!


Get Some Doe's

Be sure and get some of Doe's Famous Tamales and Steak! Eat in one hidden favorite of many famous names and faces! You may accidentally rub elbows, or share steak sauce with any number of well known people...

Very good job LillyGrillzit,

I want to take a road-trip to Doe's now, after looking at the menu. I am pretty sure they won't deliver to Alabama!

Great job and I agree with your comment, writing on local places makes us realize how much we do take for granted in our local areas.

LillyGrillzit 6 years ago from The River Valley, Arkansas Author

Thank you MyMastiffPuppies! I think there is Doe's in MS, and TN, it is a bit closer, but it is worth a trip to LR, you never know "who" will be there. Last night I went by to get more photos, and there were caddies, and lincolns parked in this not so fancy part of town. Thanks for the read and comment! Love Big Dogs too!

Interesting place. Wondering who will order a half order of Spaghetti with Meatballs for $4.95? I would prefer the full order for $1.00 extra. :)

LillyGrillzit 5 years ago from The River Valley, Arkansas Author

I would pay the dollar more. It is definitely a place set up for people to share, they do offer Take Home too! Thanks for coming by. :0)
