We were driving toward Illinois and were hungry. We wanted to eat at a buffet before we reached West Memphis. After surfing the net for a buffet choice, we decided to try Natty’s.
Venue: Truck stop café with buffet. One review on their Facebook page said, “The building looks like something out of Harlem circa 1969, but the food is decent. The parking lot for trucks is rougher than a corncob but a decent place to park.“ Don’t let the outside rule your decision to give it a try.
Atmosphere: Casual country diner with table or booth seating.
Food Fare: Natty’s offers American comfort food. Choose the buffet or order off the menu. The food was delicious even though some cold items could have been colder and some hot items warmer. Both the chicken pot pie and peach cobbler were fabulous with a capital “F.” I almost wish that was all I ate for dinner. The fried chicken was delicious. Desserts were saran wrapped and the bundt cake slice I had was good.
Recommendations: If you like fried catfish, give it a try. It wasn’t on the buffet but a friendly trucker ordered it off the menu and gave my husband a sample from her plate. He wants to go back sometime for the fish.
