You’ve Got To Take This Road Trip Through Arkansas’s Best Barbecue Cities
We’ve discussed the best barbecue city in Arkansas and added a bunch of restaurants to your barbecue bucket list, but this time we’re doing something different with barbecue—we’re road tripping. All of the restaurants on this list are on your barbecue bucket list already, but with this road trip you can hit two a day while experiencing a wonderful drive through the Delta region and into central Arkansas.
The total drive time is just under six hours, but you’re going to want to spread it out over several days so that you can eat all the barbecue you can. You could also divide the trip up across a few weekends so you’ll have enough space in your stomach for all those ribs. Regardless of how you choose to enjoy this barbecue adventure, you’re definitely going to want to pack your eating pants. These eleven restaurants are musts for barbecue fans.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
