It’s Super Bowl time—and for many that means an evening (or entire weekend) filled with food. There should be some sort of national declaration that chicken wings are the official snack of Super Bowl Sunday. The delicious combination of buffalo sauce and ranch dressing, blue cheese dressing and a variety of other flavors seem to have grown more popular than the old standards of chips and salsa or trays of sub sandwiches. A good number of Arkansas restaurants are well known for amazing wings too. That’s a bonus for Natural State residents who want to enjoy the big game with something spicy or sweet and flavorful enough to munch on while you poke fun at this year’s halftime show performances.
