Don't feel like cooking? Can't say we blame you!
Luckily Northwest Arkansas has AMAZING restaurants, many of which have pivoted to offer great meals for families at-home during the pandemic. Many restaurants have struggled to stay afloat as the pandemic has lasted so long and they could really use our support right now to stay in business. Remember, these businesses are the ones who normally give so much back to the community; it’s our turn to help them out now while enjoying a treat!
I spoke to owners at each of the restaurants listed here to ask how they have adapted and what they are offering during this difficult time. Check them out and let me know what you think.
Shogun (Shogun Fayetteville and Bentonville)
Fayetteville: 4096 N. Steele Blvd. 72703 / Bentonville: 3606 SE Metro Pkwy 72712
We are currently doing dine-in, take-out, & patio seating (weather permitting). We are ensuring the safety of all who enter our premises with limited capacity, social distancing, enforcement of masks, etc.
Shogun is family-owned and operated for over 25 years. We love the hibachi and the sushi and the fact that they are very family-friendly as well. The view from the Fayetteville restaurant is one of the best in Fayetteville.
