I can recall as a child big restaurants where you were seated at a table, where the waitresses would hover over you and touch your shoulder when they talked with you, where there was always a big round case full of cake and pie slices. You don’t find too many of those any more, but you can find one on the main drag in Springdale.

- ANY TIME OF DAY: Susan's pies can be ordered at breakfast
Susan’s Restaurant feels like the kind of family restaurant you want to sit up straight in, eat your green beans and behave your best so you can earn one of those pie slices.
It is one of the better breakfasts I’ve found in northwest Arkansas. Part of that has to do with the Chili and Cheese Omelet ($6.29). I’m a sucker for a good omelet but so often have to pass because the options will be ham, bacon or sausage. The beef chili inside this particular omelet contains beans, onions, peppers and lots of tomatoes. I’m totally cool with that, especially with the cheese blend that’s melty all through. Ah, pardon me, I started to drool there.
You’ll find Susan’s Restaurant at 1440 West Sunset Avenue (Highway 412) in Springdale. (479) 751-1445 — and it’s open every day.
