Best breakfast in Arkansas: South Arkansas 

South Fork Restaurant and Truck Stop, Gurdon Here's a great place to get a traditional South Arkansas breakfast: eggs, cornmeal-heavy sweet pancakes, grits and half-inch thick slices of fried (read: appropriately burned) all-beef bologna served any time you want an artery-clogging breakfast. $$ 2066 Hwy. 53 N, 870-353-4363, 24 hours daily.

SWEETEST BREAKFAST Johnny B's Grill, El Dorado The most decadent, dessert-like breakfast around: Johnny B's Gourmet Turtle Delight Waffle, a Belgian waffle topped with chocolate and caramel syrup, pecans, chocolate chips and whipped cream. Incredibly rich, and so sweet you'll need a French fry or hash brown to survive. It's one of several waffles on the menu for $5.99. Traditional favorites also sold here. Breakfast served all day. $$, 211 S. West Ave., 870-863-8477, 5:30 a.m.-9 p.m. Mon.-Sat., 5:30 a.m.-2 p.m. Sun.

BEST PANCACKES JJ's Lakeside Cafe, Lake Village While we are quite taken with the spicy Bean Boy Omelet packed with vegetables and peppers, the true breakfast winners here are the pancakes, sweeter than any other we've sampled. The sweetness is almost cake-like but with that firm texture a good pancake should have. $, 3681 S. Hwy. 65 82, 870-265-9800, 6 a.m.-10:30 a.m. Mon.-Sat.
