Conway, Arkansas, is in a growth pattern, with new restaurants opening their doors daily. The choices for dining out are numerous in the city, but some eateries cater to the tastes of Senior citizens.
Due Amiche is an Italian eatery. It is independently owned, and Senior citizen friendly. Although it does not give a Senior citizen discount, it gives ample portions of delicious food. There is always enough to take home for an additional meal. The prices range from $4.95 lunches to $7.95 for dinner entrees. The food is always hot and the wait staff always pleasant and eager to serve. The restaurant is quiet and the atmosphere is truly Italian.
Mike’s Place is another Senior friendly restaurant. It is reasonably priced for lunch entrees, starting at $7.95 for most entrees. The seating is adequate and the decor is New Orleans. The food is outstanding, and portions are quite generous. The wait staff are willing to split checks, etc., and readily fill the guest’s request. The owners come out and visit with the patrons, and birthday desserts are provided free for the honoree. These are usually large, and there is enough for the people at the table to share.
China Town is another Senior friendly restaurant. They offer Senior discounts and a buffet that is overflowing with excellent food. The owner is the cashier and always has a friendly word for all of her customers. The wait staff are quick to please. If you do not see the item on the buffet, they will prepare a special plate for you. If it is a birthday meal, they usually bring a small dessert for the honoree. The restaurant is very clean and brightly decorated with Chinese artifacts. Buffets start at $5.95.
The Fish House serves excellent fish dinners, along with chicken and sandwiches. They offer Senior Citizen discounts, along with specials like buy one meal get another half price. They have take out available through a drive through. The food is delicious, complete with hush puppies, green tomato relish, and corn bread. There is dessert included in the meal price. The food portions are large, so a “to go” box is almost always needed.
Meals start at $4.95. The atmosphere is relaxed and no reservations are needed.
In my opinion, these are the best selections in Conway, Arkansas, for Senior citizens. The portions are generous, and the restaurants clean. Dining out at one of these places is a real treat for any age. The best part for Seniors is that they are not overly priced for the quality of food that is served. There is usually no waiting for a table at all of these places. They cater to handicapped patrons, seating them close to the food bar or to the door of the restaurant.
All keep their rest rooms clean and adequately supplied with paper products and soap. Some have lotions available on the rest room counter.
