Doe's Eat Place is a chain, but they make a big deal about it being "family owned". It's not clear to me whether they mean the chain is family owned or each restaurant is family owned. It looks like the Mississippi and Kentucky locations are family owned, but the franchise locations are not. Either way, they want you to think it's family something. We went to the one on Dickson Street in Fayetteville.
There's a lot to take in visually at Doe's. The building is separated into two sides. One side is a crazy mess of beer signs and crap hanging all over the ceiling including a FULL COMPLEMENT of inflatable Nascar cars.
Also, a full 20 square yards behind the bar is dedicated to (what I assume) is the owner's collection of ball caps. One of them was from the Huson Funeral Home in Little Rock which begs two questions: 1. Why does a funeral home need ball caps (with camouflage bills no less); and 2. Why would you hang that in your bar/restaurant?
The other side of the joint is more "traditional". And by traditional I mean that there are stuffed versions of the animals you might try to eat staring at you from the wall.
We had already eaten (natch) so we just had fries and beers. $1.99 gets you this:
Fresh cut daily, cooked (pretty much) all the way through. Just the right amount of salt.
A good amount of tasty, hot, fresh fries for a good price. 9 out of 10.
P.S. Our waitress Lauren was super sweet. She brought Amy some fried biscuits. I had never heard of fried biscuits. They were silly.
