    Rumor has it, that when the Materfamilias died, they went back to LA to take care of the estate. :cry

    We now have an exquisite, tastefully appointed fine dining establishment north of Dover. Note the orange on white color scheme. Located on the corner of Hwy 7 and Hwy 164. Reservations recommended but not required. I believe KTM riders get a 10% discount.

    Bon appetit!

    That just my high education Yankee spin on it. Personally I question the authenticity of the Bean Shack. They pretty much spelled everything correctly on their sign so that makes 'em suspect. The punctuation is broke so there may be some hope for true hill folk vittles in there. Maybe some road kill lingo would be a plus.

    I read the first and last page, so sorry if these are duplicates, but:


    Low Gap Cafe is probably one of the best in the state.
    *Saturday it's off menu, and we're talkin' high end fare, seafood, fish, steak, high end pasta, homemade deserts. Entree's in the 13-18 dollar range
    *Sunday is Brunch from 1030-2pm, small buffet, very high quality, homemade deserts, drink included $10.99 per person.

    Also, there's a new cafe at Byrd's adventure center near Cass, half way from cass proper to Oark. Very nice little cafe, new construction, all hardwood including ceilings, on the river.... very nice.

    /BAM!

    Not sure if it's Fi, or Sat night but Low Gap has prime rib and it's some of the best I've ever had. :clap

    Granny's Kitchen in Huntsville and the Skyline Cafe in Mena, I had a tomato pie in Mena, I had never had one before.
    And the Pied Pier Pub in Eureka Springs, for Bangers and Mash.

    Only a couple of places that are decent but I like Neighbors Mill Bakery and Cafe, 1012 U.S. 62, Harrison, AR 72601. Pretty good food.

    The Low Gap Cafe is a true gem. It's got burgers but it also has hand cut ribeye, chicken picot, etc. All freshly made. A real 5 star place. Owner graduated from CIA in NY.

    I've eaten once at the Hog Shop in Noel Missouri (corner of Missouri, Ar. and Ok.) Pretty good chili dogs. I ordered 2 and the lady asked me if I had ever had one she said they are very big. It was, one was plenty.

    If you like Tex-Mex there is a new restaurant in Dover (where the old Bayou Cafe' used to be) called Cisco's Tex-Mex. Hours are a little sketchy, they close early on Wednesdays. Open for lunch then close until 5:00 pm.

    I would have tried it and given my thoughts but but my idea of good Tex-Mex is a # 4 M.R.E. Black Bean Burrito meal so I'll leave it up to the masses to pass judgement on this place.

    I ain't been here in a while, but I see no one has mentioned the best sub-shop in NWA, the Green Submarine on Wedington (just passed the Subway). Try it!!
