I know the OP mentioned Fayetteville, but for a few "lesser known" places nearby....

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?

Sam's Club.

 Walk around the sample booths for salad and appetizers, then hit the front concession for a Hot dog, slice of pizza, large fountain drink.  Back to the dessert sample. Grab a box of wine.  Wah la, easy 5 course meal.

Com'on something a little bit more original....that's a normal Friday Date Night Dinner in Birmingham!

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.  ;)

Don't park on or around Dickson Street. It gets crazy after a big win and you might have trouble getting back to your car and getting out of town.

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

Lot 56B is across the street from Bud Walton and in front of The Gardens where there will be lots of people tailgating. We will have 1-2 TV's with the games on lots of good food and cold beverages. 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.

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.

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.

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.

They have music on the patio on occasion.  Really good people.
By far my favorite. Core has gotten ahead with so so beer but excellent marketing and packaging.

Visit: Crystal Bridges, Shiloh Museum, Pinnacle Hills Promenade.

Eat:
Italian: Mama Z's in Tontitown
Steak: Does on Dickson
Catfish: Catfish Hole
Seafood: Powerhouse off Dickson
Mexican: Las Palmas in Springdale
Burgers: Hugo's or Feltner Bros in Fayetteville. Patrick's in Springdale.
Pizza: Tim's in Fayetteville or Guido's in Springdale / Tontitown
Ribs: Hermans
BBQ: WholeHog or Penguin Eds
Wings: Foghorns
Chicken: AQ Chicken


We quit going to Mama Z's when they quit letting us bring our own good wine. We have now gone back to going to Venetian Inn.
The best chicken sandwich I've ever had was the Derick's Special at Hugo's. Herman's had gone downhill but I'm told it is better again. I'm willing to give it another chance since it was always one of our favorites before. I always got the ribs but my wife loved the Garlic Chicken.

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.  ;)

This is what we do now!

Do NOT DO THIS !!!! The line for the bus is CRAZY AFTER THE GAME.

This is not accurate information. I have done this for several years now, and have never had more than a 5-10 minute wait for a shuttle. Also, it is SO much easier leaving and getting back on interstate from down there.
