Arkansans can always come together to celebrate good food. Once a year, the Department of Arkansas Heritage inducts the most remarkable restaurant into the Arkansas Food Hall of Fame. We’ve covered one of last year’s winner, Miss Rhoda’s Hot Tamales, but the judges are still deliberating for this year’s induction. In no particular order, let’s get a taste of the 12 finalists for the distinguished honor.

The public voting for these finalists has closed but you can still give your two cents for the People’s Choice 2018 Award. You can vote right here.

Who do you think the judges will pick for the 2018 Arkansas Food Hall of Fame?
