We love to order the over the coals fried chicken and there creamer spinach is amazing. Service is ok, but we are usually there close to closing time or getting it to go. I would definitely recommend this place.

This is a wonderful restaurant. Being locally owned, it would be a great place to take friends from out of town. While their specialty is chicken, they do have "non-chicken" items on their menu - definitely something for everybody. They feature a wide variety of side items and some really scrumptious desserts. They have a large map just outside the... More

Double fried french fries, amazing chicken, and fresh preserves on buttered rolls, it does not get any better than this. Such a fun place with lots of cool memorabilia, wait staff was very friendly and accommodating: we had a great experience.

Love their chicken but if you are really hungry don't order the catfish dinner. I ordered it and everyone else at the table laughed when my plate was set in front of me. The children plates had more on them than mine had. Don't get me wrong I will be back but only ordering chicken.

I've eaten at AQ (Arkansas Quality) Chicken many times over the last 20 years while traveling to NW Ark on business. AQ never disappoints with great food and relaxed atmosphere. A great place for a business lunch or to take the family for a special occasion. Go hungry and leave very satisfied!

We love their over-the-coals chicken. We order the boneless chicken. If you have never had it, you really need to try it. It has a charcoal taste with a little bit of lemon taste also. We live about 2 hours from the AQ Chicken House in Springdale but it is worth the drive a few times a year.

AQ Chicken House was recommended by a local and we are glad we took their suggestion. The chicken was flavorful and tender. The atmosphere was friendly, as well as the staff. Highly recommend.

I have been going to AQ Chicken House for decades, and I have always enjoyed it. However, it doesn't seem to be as good as consistently as it used to be. The food is still good, but maybe half the time the fries or chicken are too greasy, the rolls are hard, or the service is lacking. That said, it's... More

AQ is a well known spot for the locals. Also, President Clinton & President Bush have made a stop in. Originally, there had been chicken houses behind this restaurant back in the 1950's -- they have lemon pepper chicken that I prefer, they also have good catfish! The carpet is really "dated" and needs to be freshened up. Good place... More
