I feel like a little part of me dies every time McDonald's takes the McRib off the menu.

I haven't driven through Trumann since they finished the bypass.

Well, if my kids hadn't have played some youth baseball tournaments there, I wouldn't have in the last 20 years.

So, the quaint little Restaurant On The Corner is no longer "on the corner"? But on Hwy 112? Just not the same.
Food is just as good, Menu looks almost the same.  Building needs some work, but the food is always good

Not sure if it's still open but Minute Man in El Dorado had a great burger.  It was the only one still left in 2013.

I remember eating at the one in West Helena as a kid and the one down town in LR when I was in College at UALR.

Saw Jason and the Scorchers play there on a wickedly cold night instead of watching an OT NCAA Final Four Championship game (Glen Rice led Michigan over Seton Hall). They kept blowing a breaker. Talked to Jason quite a bit waiting for it to be fixed. Turns out he likes Bob Wills almost as much as I do. Who knew?

It was.

They closed, as my grandfather says, from the landlord not wanting to make upgrades to the facilities. The landlord is a government agency that runs a rehabilitation center in an old motel next door. So the owner just closed up shop instead.

There were Kelly's in Wynne, Batesville, Bald Knob, and one other place that escapes me. The guy that founded them is gone now, and he built one for each of his children.

They were an Arkansas-built, small business. They leased the one in Bald Knob to that Chinese guy from the commercials. Hilarious. He said he was a good-ol boy, with good down home cooking.

I lol'd



FWIW it reopened in the old Duck Blind in the Ramada.

Several people, from my hometown, were driving to our high school football game in Mena and stopped at that place to eat. Unfortunately, they got food poisoning. That was many years ago though.

There used to be a pretty famous family owned place just south of Pine Bluff on the highway toward Monticello.  I can't think of the name of it for the life of me, but it was family owned and an institution in those parts.  If anyone remembers the name from that description and also knows if it's still open, it's worth a meal or two.  Sorry my memory is so bad on the name.
