This place is a NWA staple! They are very famous around here because they are involved in the community. Their food is not memorable, but it is enjoyable. The sauces are tasty and the venue is kid friendly. Don't bother getting dessert here, just buy something at the grocery store, or fill up on the regular food, which is good.
Been eating the stuff since the days of the trailer and the place next to the video store. Ed makes a good plate of food. The BBQ potato combo is worth checking out. I also recommend the pasta salad. Thanks Ed, I was one of the guinea pigs in the early days. You have a several great places and the foods still top notch.
It is okay, but I have tasted much better BBQ! When I want really good tasting BBQ I drive to Rogers to eat at The Rib Crib. Delicious!! Now that's good BBQ and worth the drive. It far better than Penguin Ed's. The beef, sauce, food quality, portions and selection, price and atmosphere are far superior. I think people who eat at Penguin Ed's are BBQ novices and really have not experienced really good BBQ. I love BBQ and have tried so many places known for good BBQ, such as Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas. So if you are used to good BBQ you will be disappointed.
As soon as you walk you are overcome by this bbq aroma that is like nothing you have ever smelled sit down pick up the little red phone and order your food make sure to get the batter dipped frie YUMMY and try some spicy sauce to kick it up. BEST BBQ I have EVER ATE.
My experience at Penquin Ed's has been great everytime! The meat has a wonderful flavor and I really enjoy the spicy BBQ Sauce. Being from California I have never heard of Fried Pickles, so when I saw them on the menu I had to try them, wow they were good! However, the best part about Penguin Ed's is the meat, it has a great smokey flavor and is nice and tender.
We love this place. The food is just right. I love the Arkansas Steak Sandwich, and the pinto beans. Oh yeah the potaoes are great. They are fried with onions and green peppers. and topped with cheese. Yummy Yummy
