There’s No Restaurant In The World Like This One In Arkansas

J.B. Weisenfels has lived in rural Arkansas for three decades. She is a writer, a mom, and a graduate student. She is also an avid collector of tacky fish whatnots, slightly chipped teapots, and other old things. In her spare time she enjoys driving to the nearest creek to sit a while. If you were to visit her, she'd try to feed you cornbread.
If you’re looking for an unbelievable place to take your family for a meal, look no further than the small upper delta town of Walnut Ridge. What’s so incredible about this restaurant, you ask? Well, part of it is housed in a renovated Boeing 737. That’s right. You can eat on an aircraft without ever leaving the ground – and the food you’ll get isn’t standard airline issue either. Both the menu and the buffet are full of delicious home-style dishes that would make your grandmother proud.
Please note, The Parachute Inn is no longer in business.
