Rogers Restaurants for Every Taste

Rogers has no shortage of entertainment options. Whether it's spending a day at the golf course, enjoying one of the many outdoors activities in the area, or visiting a museum, there are plenty of ways to bring excitement to a business trip or family outing. However, there is always one important question during a stay - what are some close-by restaurants to grab a bite to eat?

Below are some delicious new(ish) restaurants that are located within a short distance of Embassy Suites Northwest Arkansas.

1) Big Orange

Stop by Big Orange in the Pinnacle Hills Promenade Mall and you'll find bold burgers, inspired salads, hand-dipped shakes, soda-bottle floats, and a full bar with amazing wine selections and craft cocktails. Big Orange offers an endless array of customizable burgers and shakes, and is always adding items to the menu for guests to try.

Their spicy pimento cheese appetizer is a favorite, but those with a sweet tooth might prefer the Arkansas Cold Brew and Caramel Coffee Shake.

2) Ozark Prime Chophouse

One of a kind fine dining experience, with great menu choices and excellent service with a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. Come visit our bar with extensive wine and alcohol selections for anyone to choose from. Our staff is ready to greet and service you with an amazing dining experience here new in NWA. Ozark Prime Chophouse is inspired weekly cuisines showcasing the restaurant's relationship with local farms and purveyors. Ozark Prime works with farmers and growers to provide locally sourced items such as Arkansas produce and Arkansas-bred Wagyu Cattle. Our award-winning steaks, chops and seafood as well as our service and hospitality create a dining experience second to none.

​3) Modoko

Modoko is a new, locally owned restaurant in Rogers that offers modern Asian cuisine. They re-create classic dishes from Vietnam, China and Thailand using high-quality fresh ingredients. Modoko features a large covered patio, multiple rooms for private events with seating up to 60 and a chefs table with a view of the open kitchen. They also have a full bar and 15 taps with local beer and ciders.

"Chef Ryan Brown and I worked together in San Francisco and he went on to open restaurants in China. We decided to open Modoko in Rogers because we know the area is growing at a very fast pace and we felt that we could be successful here and fill a niche that people could enjoy," Managing Partner Reid Combellack said. "There are some great restaurants and people here that we are excited to get to work with. Being so close to the entertainment district and the Embassy Suites is just another bonus for us and business has been very good so far."

​4) Local Lime

A sister restaurant of Big Orange, Local Lime offers flavor-packed dishes inspired by Mexican street fare, Latin American options with a hint of Tex-Mex and delicious handcrafted cocktails. Whether you're enjoying some of their street-style tacos on the patio, or a night of frozen margaritas at their bar, you're sure to have a good time. Trying the Mexican-style corn is a must, as well​.

5) Tacos 4 Life

Tacos 4 Life is an Arkansas-based restaurant with a new location in Rogers. Enjoy some of their delicious fried chicken, chipotle steak or crab cake tacos, or stick with Mexican creamed corn and some queso or guacamole. What makes Tacos 4 Life stand out is their business model. For every meal that a customer buys, they will donate a meal to hungry children in more than 60 countries through the organization "Feed my Starving Children." They recently reached the 7 million mark in total meal donations.

"The meal packs include rice, soy, vegetables and vitamins. Our customers feel that eating here is a great way to have a delicious meal while also supporting a good cause," Local Marketing Coordinator Lexi Deines said. "Tacos 4 Life's goal is to help in the mission to end world hunger."

"We chose Rogers because we really wanted to be a part of all of the exciting things happening in the area," said co-owner Austin Samuelson. "Business has been greater than we expected so far. We love partnering with the community to help feed hungry kids all over the world."
