After many have told us we needed to try this place, we finally made it. It was a 55 minute drive and a 30 minute wait to see what all the talk was about. This building is actually a very old horse barn that was torn down and moved to Arkansas, The timber are incredible. All the staff are nice, prompt and professional. I had the chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes after reading all the reviews. While it was very good, I was reminded later that my body doesn't like fried foods any more. I also had the peach cobbler. It was very different than any I have had before, it was cut in a square and firm. However it was excellent. It was a very good experience and if we are ever in the area again, we will stop by.

The wooden spoon is an excellent place to eat! However it is so popular, if you want to eat in, I recommend that you prepare to wait in line for a good period of time. We love to go over and get many of the items that they have to go! They are frozen in the freezer and you can take them home and heat them up at your convenience! Since the owners are affiliated with a religious organization, their hours of operation in the evening and weekends are limited so check before you go! You want me to support it 🙂

I visited friends in Arkansas during Labor Day weekend and am so glad they took me here to eat. Hands down one of the best meals I’ve ever had in my life! The ribeye sandwich with pasta salad and gourmet potatoes was made to perfection and, by far, the best bread I’ve ever eaten. It would have been worth visiting Arkansas just to have eaten here!

Delicious! Just great! Great food, pleasant atmosphere, outstanding quality, and an all around awesome experience! This is quality food, not fast food, and so the price will reflect that. Expect to pay a minimum of around $15 per person and that price will increase if you order a soft drink or a dessert. ( The desserts looked delicious ) You may also experience a long wait time, so if you are in a hurry, this may not the best choice for you. However, at some point, you need to make this experience a priority.

Had the best Valentines day dinner. The food was fresh and seasoned to perfection. They were running behind for our reservation but it was Valentines night. Wait staff seemed a little over whelmed at times but with the food it made up for the wait.
