Yes, we are talking about the Browning's Mexican Food Restaurant that has been a Little Rock fixture for over 60 years. I say 60 years because that is how long Chuck remembers eating at Browning's. In the 1940's his family would travel from Benton to Little Rock for a night out. There were very few places to eat out in Little Rock: Hank's Dog House, Bruno's, The Embers, Tijuana and Browning's...can you think of more?
We are back to the "Wow"! What a transformation! It is very open, updated and very trendy.
This is what should have been done the last time Browning's opened under new management...but no they had to give in to public pressure and go for the "same ol'; same ol'" stuff. We love the new ambiance. The acoustics aren't great, but bearable. It keeps your conversation private even if you can't hear yourself think. There are TVs for sports, booths, tables, and a great bar area...something for everyone! ...and the best part, scrumptious Margaritas!
When we go back and we will, we are going to sit at the bar and try some new menu items: Salmon Vera Cruz and Grilled Shrimp Tacos and White Cheese dip when they figure it out. It wasn't available because they had not perfected it...so said the waitress. Speaking of waitresses, none of the original crew was to be seen. I think they finally retired. There is a youngish wait staff full of energy and ready to serve. Just when I said, "I think our food should have been here by now", it arrived. It was delicious!
Highly recommend you give Browning's a try!
