  • Bama fans would prolly feel most at home at Shirley's in Springdale.

    Ha! Where good friends gather......they'll check you for knives at the door. If you don't have one, they'll give you one.

  • All on Dickson or the Square.

    Vetro on the square or Theo's and Bordino's on dickson for a casual yet sophisticated atmosphere.
    Hugos on the square for lunch.
    Drinks at Jose's on the patio Friday afternoon.
    Herman's anytime

  • Doe's if you're in the mood for a steak. Hugo's has the best burgers in town. Hammontree's is a gourmet grilled cheese restaurant, which is a LOT better than it sounds. It's high in the running for the best good 'ol American style restaurant in town. Powerhouse for seafood (also cook a surprisingly good steak). Shogun or Kobe if you want a Japanese Steakhouse. Most of the sushi places taste the same to me (maybe I'm just easy to please), but I'd suggest Tokyo or Wasabi because they're right there on Dickson.

    If you're in the mood for Mexican, just skip Fayetteville and go just north to the neighboring town of Springdale. They have an insane number of good authentic Mexican food, and you'll see why as soon as you spend ten minutes in town. Springdale also has great Thai food, Pataya Thai is my favorite. I don't really have a good recommendation for Italian for you, maybe the Pesto Cafe or Noodles. Maybe someone else could recommend Italian.

    A lot of the bars on Dickson are kind of college bars. If you're into a more divey place, Kingfish is my favorite. It's on School Ave, not too far off of Dickson. Mickey Finn's is another pretty good one on Dickson. All the drinks are half off on Sunday if you stay the whole weekend. Fayetteville is a really nice little town and I hope everyone is hospitable and you enjoy your stay.

  • Hugo's for beer, great atmosphere, and an amazing burger.  Little Bread Company or the Green Submarine for a great deli sandwich.

    Taste of Thai near the square is by far the best Thai food I've ever had.  Pesto Cafe is a nice romantic place for dinner with the wife/girlfriend.


    Enjoy the Ozarks!

    Mary Maestri's-Springdale
    Joe's Italian Grill-Springdale
    Flaps Down-Springdale airport tower
    Abeulo's Mexican-Rogers

    Check out Tontitown Winery on Friday night. Great outside venue. Bring your lawn chairs, listen to several good bands, enjoy the wine. Good time. Oh, you can bring your own beer, just stop by Kum & Go and get a big cup to pour it in. Nobody cares. ;)

    Abeulo's! I know he's a Bama Fan, but do you have to show so much hate?

  • #13371 by Hogfan46 on 06 Oct 2014
  • I would park off Dickson Street. You can grab some food/drinks and watch some games there. You can then enjoy a stroll thru the heart of campus to the game and back and not fight traffic. Cold beer will be waiting there for you after the game to help drown your sorrows of Alabama's 2nd loss in a row.  ;)
  • #13372 by Doug on 06 Oct 2014
  • Or you could do the free parking and then go find the Hogville tailgate in Lot 47, I think (Wayne, help me out here). Someone will ALWAYS have the games on at the tailgates. :)
  • #13373 by DEVICEHIGH on 06 Oct 2014
  • Park across from Baum stadium. Eat and drink at Foghorns. Take the free bus to the game.

  • Park at Baum field and u can ride bus to gate one! Free parking there also!

    Do NOT DO THIS !!!! The line for the bus is CRAZY AFTER THE GAME. I would tell you to go to Dickson Street HUGO's is just off Dickson and has GREAT BURGERS George's will probably have a band on Friday night and should be rockin (this too is on Dicpkson). And YES DOES's Eat Place is a must for AMAZING STEAKS. You could go to Dickson St on Saturday around 9:30-10:00 go to Common Grounds and have "The Buddah" and a Bloody Mary or three then get in your car around 1:00-2:00 and drive around Bud Walton Arena. There is always lots of paid parking around there or park At Fayettevile High school... Then come tailgate with us in the Gardens (across the street from Bud Walton Arena lot 56 B we are in the tailgate spot next to Razorback Road and the sidewalk to The Gardens. There will be other Bama fans at our tailgate... It you make it there just ask for "MOMMA Hog" or PigTails I hope you enjoy Fayetteille Except for the game Of course. I hope we curb stomp your LOL IN A NICE SORT OF WAY!!! I go to the Bama game every other  year in T-Town and I  have always had fun.... Well except for the game

  • The walk from the Stadium back to Baum Stadium is about 1 1/2 miles and pretty flat.  Used to do it until a few years ago.  Old age caught up with me.  It is a interesting walk, especially if we (Hogs win.

  • Park in the big parking lot across the street from the Walton Arts Center at Dickson and West $5. Eat, drink on Dickson. Walk to intersection of Dickson and Arkansas, Take sidewalk through the Old Main lawn toward Old Main, Take sidewalk that runs west right beside old main straight to the stadium. Your seats should be on this side of the stadium also. Go back the same way after the game. Hit Dickson until the traffic clears.
    This is where I park and It is an easy, beautiful walk and easy to get out after the game even if you don't hit the bars after the game. Use the parking lot exit on West ave (SE corner of lot) to get out easy. You pay when you leave the lot.

    Visit: Crystal Bridges, Dickson Street/Fville Square, UA Campus, War Eagle Mill, Eureka Springs
  • #13394 by demonHOG1013 on 07 Oct 2014

  • #13395 by wholehog92 on 07 Oct 2014
  • The McDonald's is fantastic!

    The one in Huntsville?

    I've seen AQ mentioned a couple of times.  From a fellow who is right by it right now, it's not what it used to be.  I'd replace it with something else mentioned.  If you have to have chicken and want local, head to Rogers and go to Monte Ne.

    Tims is voted the best pizza in town pretty much every year for a reason.

    Feltners Fayetteville is pretty good for a quick burger, fries, and a shake, but that's about the extent of it.

    Hermans is still very good.  I keep meaning to try Z's pizza (owned by Zach Painter former hog).  He bought the college avenue Tims but haven't had the chance yet.  Glad to see Hammon trees getting some love.

    I haven't seen mentioned but are really good: Cafe Rue Orleans, Hawaiian Brians, Mesa Luna, Geraldis, and Teatro Scarpino.

  • Not much difference in distance between walking to Dickson and walking to Baum when you consider the elevation changes FWIW.  There's more options on Dickson and you can see the campus.  No brainer.

  • Hey Bama fans...Here's a tip. When you get to Conway, take Hwy 65 North though Harrison and Conway. It's a beautiful drive this time of year and will save you an hour.  ;)

    Not sure about saving an hour, unless you plan to arrive just in time for kickoff and want to avoid traffic on 540.  Otherwise, any route through the Ozarks coming in from the east is going to take longer.  However . . .

    If you plan to drive Friday and get to Fayetteville before or soon after dark, or go halfway Friday and have lots of time Saturday, consider these routes:

    65 is a good choice.  Stop in Eureka Springs and explore a bit.  An hour here will probably add 2 to the drive on the interstate.

    Highway 7 north at Russellville is listed repeatedly as one of the Top 10 most scenic drives in the U.S.  Pull over for a pit stop at Rotary Ann overlook, and stop at the Cliff House Inn, even if only for the view of the canyon.  Good place for lunch on Saturday.  This route will take you through Eureka, also.  If you really want some Ozarks culture and scenery, head west on 74 at Jasper and down into the Upper Buffalo River canyon.  After you cross the river at Ponca, head south for a few miles on 21 to the whitewashed church and turn around and head towards Fayetteville.  Watch for elk and people on the side of the road taking pictures of elk. 

    Highway 23 at Ozark.  No need for directions here.  Arkansans have referred to this stretch as "The Pig Trail" for generations.  Direct route over and through the Ozarks.  Nice place for a sandwich at Turner Bend just before the Mulberry River.

    Highway 71 at Alma.  The most direct route to Fayetteville before 540 was completed about 15 years ago.  My least favorite of the four alternate routes. 

    If you take 540, it's not like you won't see some beautiful scenery.  540 passes through canyons and has a great tunnel.  In it's own way, this may be the prettiest route of all.  It just doesn't go over the mountains or through the quaint little towns.

    For restaurants and bars, there are myriad good choices on Dickson.  Parking is usually not hard to find nearby.  It isn't a bad walk to the stadium.  Hugo's and Maxine's would be my choice, but that's driven by nostalgia.  Another nostalgic choice is The Venesian Inn at Tontitown.  Nice short drive northwest of town.  Sort of the old equivalent of Dreamland BBG.  Sort of.  If you want a steak, try Herman's, but be prepared to wait.
