This semester, there are several new dining options for students and Searcy residents. Among the new restaurants are three distinct locations that have varied options.
Greek House Mediterranean Grill, located close to campus at 1211 E. Beebe Capps, offers Greek-American cuisine at an affordable price. The menu includes multiple appetizer options, soups and salads, specialty Greek House platters, gyros and sandwiches. While the food is more westernized than traditional Greek food, some traditional options are available as well, including tzatziki and baklava. All the ingredients are brought in raw to the restaurant, and fresh dishes are prepared fresh every day. Greek House has a moderately-sized dining room and offers carry-out and catering services. They are open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
Slader’s Alaskan Dumpling Company, or SADCo., is located at 301 E. Center Ave. Owned and operated by recent Harding graduate Slader Marshall, SADCo., provides traditional Alaskan dumplings, pelmeni, stuffed with chicken, beef or potatoes. Slader’s pricing is very student-friendly, with an order of dumplings and a drink costing $7 for students. SADCo., is open from 11:30 a.m. until 12:30 a.m. Monday through Saturday.
TOOkies is a specialty dessert cafe located at 1229 W. Beebe Capps. They offer cookies, “cookiewiches” and cookie bars, sundae cups, jar cakes and gourmet marshmallows, among other options. TOOkies started as an online business, but now customers can walk in to order or have orders delivered. They offer a 15 percent student discount. TOOkies is open 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday through Saturday, and from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Wednesday. They are closed on Sunday.
