There’s Something Truly Unique About This Little Arkansas Restaurant
This restaurant has won a place on many lists here at Only In Your State, and that’s because it’s one of the most lauded restaurants in Arkansas. Frankly, I’d be surprised if you hadn’t also heard of Jones Bar-B-Q Diner from the multiple news articles about it. Have you ever heard of a James Beard award? If not, that’s okay, but there’s something you need to know: James Beard awards are some of the most prestigious awards in the culinary world, and little bitty Jones Bar-B-Q Diner has one.
Jones Bar-B-Q Diner is located at 219 West Louisiana Street in the small delta town of Marianna. You can get directions here, and please don’t forget to call them before you drop in. Their phone number is (870) 295-3807.
