Sheba's Family Restaurant is located in Hope, Arkansas. It is a family oriented place that caters to down home cooking. The regulars of this establishment for breakfast even have their own personalized cup on the wall that they will use instead of a normal cup. The ambiance is a nice and cozy place to eat.

What was ordered for dinner? We ordered a combo appetizer, a chicken fried chicken with mashed potatoes, fried okra and broccoli cheese soup, a Cadillac BBQ chicken with mashed potatoes, corn and salad, spaghetti with meatballs and chicken fingers and fries.

About 15 minutes later, our salad and soup arrived to the table for consumption. About 5 minutes later, the kids were served their meals. The spaghetti looked as if frozen meatballs were used and the chicken fingers were standard frozen chicken fingers. About 5 minutes later our main dishes arrived. When we inquired about our appetizers, we were told by our waitress that she forgot to place the order, to which we said to forget that order.

The Cadillac BBQ chicken was the most edible part of the meal. The mashed potatoes tasted as if water was used to make the mashed potatoes instead of milk or cream. The chicken fried chicken was just a deep fried frozen chicken steak covered in gravy. Finally the corn was brown, tasted mushy and gummy as if it was in the steam table all day and had over cooked.

As we were talking and complaining, neither the wait staff nor the owner or her husband came by to ask how everything was going and if the food was ok. To be honest about it, the owner and her husband were sitting at a table directly catty-corner behind me and probably could hear everything I was saying, but no one came to ask us our opinion.

When we checked out, another waitress took my bill at the counter. She did not inquire if everything was ok, but just asked for the money. I told her that I did not like the meal and what was wrong, she said that she was sorry and that it is not always like that and that she hopes we come back again and promises that it will be better the next time we come. She takes my credit card and swipes it to pay the bill.

Once I left, my fiancee heads back into the restaurant and asks for the manager. The owner comes up and as they talk, the owner informs us that we are wrong in our assessment of her food and that she has the best chicken fried chicken, period. She argues that she makes all of the vegetables herself and that she just had surgery and was still there working. She also informed us that tonight was a bad night because she had to fire one of her servers. She argues that all of her regular customers say that her food is the best. She then takes $5 off of the bill. She asks us if we are from Hope to which we reply that we were not. We stated that we will not be returning to her restaurant and the owner replied "Thank you, we appreciate that."

Family environment, friendly service and great home cooked meals! Construction workers, church goers, business lunches and all sorts of people enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner here. I highly recommend the carrots with any plate lunch, they just melt in your mouth!
