Used to really rock, now just ok. Seating hostess impatient, hostile and rude. Waiter was very nice and on it. Hamburger dry and over cooked, fries semi warm and over salted. Banana pudding was still pretty good. If you want Purple Cow like it used to be, go to the one in Conway.

We ate dinner here as a group of adults as it was recommended by a friend. The food was very good. The atmosphere was very kid friendly. Several of us got the purple milk shake and it was the low point of the meal. Wish I had gotten another flavor.

We were in Little Rock for a night and I turned to TA to help find a dinner spot. The Purple Cow caught my eye, and then happened to be right down the street from the hotel we were staying at. We got there just in time to beat the dinner rush, by the time we finished the waiting area... More

We went to purple cow because where else can you get purple ice cream!! We had the vanilla and chocolate shakes and a root beer float. Everybody loved what they got. You couldn't tell which was which until you tasted it. Fun for all. Something different than the usual.

I stopped here for lunch while traveling for work. Great food selection, I had a hard time deciding what to try! Everything was great and reasonably priced. I did not try the desserts, but they looked very tempting!

They are doing something right. I have never gone to this location and got seated right away. This past trip was unique for me since it was the first time we sat at the counter area. I had my wife and 5 kids with this time. We enjoyed watching the employees scoop out the ice cream for all of the... More

Service was fast, food OK except for the purple vanilla milkshake which was great. Portions were decent sized. The milkshake came partly in a glass and partly in the mixing cup (which was like they used to be served many moons ago). There was almost as much left in the cup as in the glass to start with, well worth... More

We took our family here for lunch. I used to really enjoy coming here. The service was terrible, the food marginal( soggy black bean burger, tasteless macaroni and cheese( tastes like powdered Kraft)etc... etc...and the bonus was the LIPSTICK on my husbands tea glass!!!

We have eaten here off and on when in town for a decade or more and usually enjoyed it; however, this visit was disappointing. Although the service was good, the food was very average. We got a cheeseburger, blackened chicken sandwich (not blackened much at all) and a basket of fries. The sandwiches were tasty if not special but the... More

First time to this restaurant and it was very good. We told the waitress it was our first time and she brought us a sample of the purple ice cream, we thought that was nice. The food was very good. My husband loves the Pattie melt he said it was fixed just like it is suppose to be.
