We traveling I like to eat local and Pruett's was about as "local" as they come. The establishment was recommended to me and I had general directions, but I couldn't find it. In the spot where the restaurant should have been all I saw was a used pickup truck lot with a little office building behind it. Oops, a second... More

My husband had the catfish that was sooo. I had the BBQ pork. It was very good. Restaurant was a bit dirty, but we were very hungry from traveling by car all day from northern Indiana to Texas.

I saw some good reviews, and when I drove past it, their parking lot was full. I waited a little for a table, and chose a luncheon special from the menu. My particular meal was not something that would make me go back. If I am in the area I may give it another try, but I am not going... More

Pruetts is a little difficult to find, but definitely worth the extra effort. Small restaurant, with limited seating. The owner greeted us with a smile and a heartfelt welcome. The menu was limited, but the food offered was great. The catfish fillets were huge, with very little breading. The barbecued ribs were slow cooked, but had great flavor!! If y'all... More

We stopped here around 6 pm one evening heading to Memphis. We both ordered the catfish sandwich, one with fries and one with onion rings. OMG, they were so good. They also have BBQ, hamburgers, pork chops, shrimp, etc. Only a mile off Hwy 40 between Little Rock and Memphis. Very friendly people!

In business for over 30 years this place has a strong local clientele. They are open Monday through Friday ONLY from 10-7. If you... More

While recently traveling across Arkansas, my wife and I found this very good local diner, Pruitt’s Bar-B-Que & Catfish Restaurant, in the town of Lonoke where we were spending a night. The restaurant is a small unassuming place serving very good “home cookin’”. Both of us ordered their fried catfish and were so glad we did. The catfish was fried... More

Pruett's is a great little diner! The staff was wonderful. We ordered catfish, hot wings, a burger and pie. The catfish was some of the best we've eaten, the burger was great and beware, the hot wings were very spicy. The homemade coconut and chocolate pies were scrumptious!
