Food Feedback Friday: Chickpeas, Chicken, and Charbroiled Burgers

Posted By on Fri, Feb 1, 2013 at 9:50 AM


It’s about time the weekend showed up, and now that January is officially behind us, it’s time we take stock of what’s been going on around our beloved Arkansas. This week, we were squawking about hummus from The House, hot wings from ZAZA, and butter bars from The Cupcake Factory. We also heard about the end of a hot dog dynasty with the departure of Hot Dog Mike, while we welcomed Home Fresh Burgers to its home on Cantrell Road, and we were teased about the imminent arrival of a barbecue food truck. Gus’s isn’t the only chicken joint planning to try its hand at the Little Rock market; we’ll be seeing the first location of Slim’s Chicken in Little Rock at the now defunct Backyard Burgers on W. Markham, scheduled to arrive sometime this Spring.

So now it’s your turn, Arkansas! Give us the skinny on what’s going on in your neck o’ the woods. Any new developments springing up that we all need to know about? Or maybe you’ve only recently discovered a dish that you’ve been aching to tell everyone about. Now’s your chance…spill the beans on our food scene.

Last week’s Food Feedback Friday had us talking about terrific Thai from Lemongrass in NLR (I think this is the 5th week in a row? I can take a hint) and Chang’s in Sherwood. We also had some big beefy love for The Box, a place whose ancient grill is a reverenced entity in these parts. James Beard winning barbecue joint, Jones’ BBQ continues to win favor and Red Door’s shrimp and grits sound like something worth seeking out. I’ve only scratched the surface of all the gastro-gab we were throwing around last week, but you can see it all here.

So, let’s hear from you! What dishes have got you all hot and bothered this week? We’d love know all about them.

  • The Kraft Mac & Cheese Food Hack

    Recently, we held another food hack competition, taking another childhood classic, Kraft Mac & Cheese, and tried to turn it on its head, creating something entirely new and unique. Again, the results were pretty awesome. The rules were simple: Use a whole box of mac and cheese, both noodles and cheese powder, and turn it into any sinister monstrosity imaginable. We had a vote via the Eat Arkansas Facebook page to crown a winner. Here's what was submitted:
