Best breakfast in Arkansas: Northeast 

BEST BREAKFAST BUFFET Ole Sawmill Cafe, Forrest City The best breakfast buffet in the state offers several types of breakfast meats as well as country fried steak, eggs, casseroles, biscuits, pancakes, oatmeal, grits and — well, it goes on from there, for just $6.50 a person. $$, 2299 N. Washington St., 870-630-2299, olesawmillcafe.com, 6 a.m.-10:30 a.m. daily.

Front Page Cafe, Jonesboro This popular Jonesboro eatery saves the thrown rolls for dinner. Breakfast is surprisingly reasonable.

Get them as part of the Manager's Special, along with a couple of eggs and your choice of breakfast meat. $$, 2117 E. Parker Road, 870-932-6343, 6:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m. daily.

BIGGEST BISCUITS Meacham's, Ash Flat A quality country breakfast in the wilds of Northeast Arkansas? Indeed.

The big, soft wheat biscuits are pull-apart flaky; you'll only need one. $$, 191 Hwy. 62 W, 870-994-2101, 6 a.m.-8 p.m. Tue.-Sun.

BEST BISCUITS AND GRAVY Penny's Place, Weiner Every morning before four, the cooks come in to make fresh biscuits and sweet cream gravy from scratch. It's the best dish of biscuits and gravy you'll find in the state. Breakfast served all day. $, 210 N. Van Buren St., 870-684-2260, 5 a.m.-9 p.m. Mon.-Sat.

  • Asa's talk is cheap

    Asa Hutchinson seems so much nicer about his belief in legal discrimination. But the result is more dangerous. You can be falsely lulled, as the national press has been, into believing Hutchinson is a moderate.
