Kid-Friendly Restaurants in Rogers

Bring the whole family to these casual places to eat

Kid-friendly restaurants in Rogers are easy to find. The hard part will be deciding which place to eat.

IDK? Cafe is a good place to start the day, with items like smoothies, breakfast panini, biscuits and gravy and breakfast scramblers. Or, go for lunch with a signature sandwich—reuben, wild hog panini, cranberry chicken salad, caprese panini and more. IDK also has clubs and wraps, chopped salads and gourmet burgers.  Note, IDK? Cafe has recently moved to the Rogers Executive Airport.

A classic grilled cheese served up gourmet-style is a hit for children and adults alike at Hammontree’s Grilled Cheese. You can build your own cheese melt, or order one of the specialties such as the Cheebacca made with sharp white cheddar, house cheese, bacon, pulled pork, grilled onions and garlic-cilantro sauce on sourdough.

Parkside Public serves home-style root beer on tap, along with salads, hot sandwiches, hot dogs, wings, dirty fries and specialty burgers. They also have temptations for your sweet tooth, such as milkshakes, turtle brownies and, of course, a root beer float.

Iron Horse Coffee Company is a kid favorite, especially with teenagers, when school gets out. But there’s plenty for parents to love too. Thirsty? Go for espresso, iced coffee, frozen drinks, or brewed coffee. Hungry? Try a classic sandwich—meat or veggie—or have a bowl of hearty soup.

At first glance, Pinnacle Bar & Grill seems like an upscale adult location. While it certainly has elements of that, with main plates of filet mignon, pork tenderloin, blackened Creole cod and pesto encrusted salmon, the other half of the menu is casual. There are handheld burgers and sandwiches and dips of guacamole, queso and bacon and blue cheese. In warmer months, sit on “The Porch,” the family-friendly outdoor patio.

Las Palmas is a favorite with locals. Fajitas, enchiladas, tacos and burritos filled with shrimp, chicken or beef make everyone in the family happy. Plus, it’s served with sides such as rice, beans, guacamole, pico de gallo and sour cream, as well as starters of salsa and queso.

Treat your sweet tooth to Kirby’s Kupcakes. There are usually about nine flavors baked fresh every morning. Their specialty is a Chazberry cupcake: a chocolate cupcake with chocolate chip cheesecake baked in the middle and topped with a raspberry frosting. They’re also known for their Goliath Challenge, as seen on Travel Channel’s Man v. Food, where one cupcake equals 22 regular cupcakes. The challenger has 30 minutes to finish eating it, then has a five-minute waiting period to see if it stays down.

No kid friendly Rogers restaurant list is complete without including Andy's Frozen Custard.  Andy's always makes it fun to be a kid for a while, serving up sundaes, cones, concretes and memories since 1986.  Now located in 10 states, the Rogers location became the first Arkansas Andy's back in 2005.  Look for an additional Rogers location soon!
