Restaurants in West Memphis
A favorite Arkansas Delta spot for nearly seven decades, the original Pancho’s Mexican Restaurant opened in West Memphis after the owners took a trip to Mexico. The original location, which was lost to a fire less than a year after opening, featured dirt floors and a live tree saved during the restaurant’s construction. The second (and current) location sits on the spot of the former Plantation Inn, a historic club opened in 1943. The Plantation Inn had the largest dance floor in the South. The club also served as a hub for after-hours jam sessions with performers from Memphis hotels and Beale Street and was where the legendary Isaac Hayes got his start.
Opened in West Memphis in the early 1970s, the original Howard’s Donuts has been a perennial favorite for generations of sweet lovers in the Arkansas Delta.
The Bourbon Street Steakhouse and Grill, located within Southland Casino Racing, is known for their amazing steaks and a New Orleans flair. But the menu offers much more, like savory seafood, a list of Chef’s specials, soups, pasta and decadent desserts.
