The Incredible Arkansas Restaurant That’s Way Out In The Boonies But So Worth The Drive

About 50 miles southeast of Monticello is the tiny town of Lake Village. With a population of less than 3,000, you may think this town has limited offerings. Not true, my friend! Tourists mostly visit for angler fishing in Lake Chicot, the nation’s largest natural oxbow lake. But besides fishing, this sleepy town does have a best kept secret – Rhoda’s Famous Hot Tamales & Pies. Get your appetite ready as we tour this little stop with a flavor that just can’t be topped.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

The next time you catch yourself driving through the delta be sure to stop and grab a tamale! Rhoda’s is located at 714 Saint Mary Street, Lake Village.
