Our Values

Published in Uncategorized

Integrity:  We believe in honesty and trust. We work to build trust with others in each and every transaction and interaction. We recognize that honesty and trust form the bond that holds organizations and relationships together.  We do what we say we are going to do when we say we are going to do it. We believe in personal accountability and avoid blaming others when things don’t turn out as planned.

Guest-Centric:  We believe in providing legendary service to each and every customer whether they are dining in or taking out. Our goal is to provide the kind of unique and genuine sort of personal care and attention that our customers tell stories about.

Constant Improvement:  We believe that good enough isn’t. We never stop trying to do it better, no matter how good we are. We constantly strive to “raise the bar.” We are interested in our employee’s ideas for doing things better (i.e., faster, more efficiently, safer, etc.).  If you see a better way to do something, tell us.  Share your ideas.

Employee Development:  We believe in the ongoing training and development of our people. We see it as a worthy investment in the future of RCD and as a way of enabling our people to achieve their potential in whatever they do.

Teamwork:  We believe our continued success depends on teamwork. We know that great achievements are only possible if we all work together.  We are not competitive with each other.  We support the overall success of the business by helping each other.

Highest Standards:  We believe in doing business in a professional and orderly manner. We do not compromise on quality or safety.  We take great pride in having good systems, standardized procedures and being organized.

About Us

river city bistro

People ask us all the time why we wanted to open a New York style delicatessen in Fort Smith. It’s not a concept that people are familiar with here and it hasn’t been tried before.  However, we love this style of food – it’s a big part of our history and culture and we know that once you try it, it will become part of yours as well.  This is the food that we grew up with it’s our version of comfort food; warm, healing soups, deliciously roasted and cured meats, and family-style meals, all made with love.

We’re mother and son transplants from Pittsburgh, PA  and have made our home in Fort Smith.  Pittsburgh is well-known as the city of three rivers – the Allegheny and Monongahela come together to form the base of the Ohio.   The people of Pittsburgh are down-to-Earth, warm, and friendly, in much the same way as the people of Fort Smith.   We love Fort Smith and wanted to combine our love for our old home with our love for our new home.  Since Fort Smith is on the Arkansas river, our name, “River City” ties it all together.

We hope you’ll come in and help us expand our family of friends through our delicious food and unparalleled service.   We’re cooking it like our parents and grandparents did  house-roasted meats, freshly baked breads, and delicious sides.  Come in, sit down, and let us serve you, or stop by to grab something on the go.   We know you’re going to love it as much as we do.
