"History is always happening" at Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site
A dependable burger, good wings, great fries, other bar food, plate lunches, full bar.
The happy hour vibe here has gone unchanged for years, decades maybe, with a true-life "Cheers" crew of regulars, stationed behind longnecks, shooting -- no, blasting -- the bull with any and everyone with the tongue to shoot back. The young crowd comes at night for beer, pool, shuffleboard and french fries. Karaoke on Tuesdays and the first Friday of each month.

One of the best-conceived burgers in Little Rock, the thick Pump Burger ($7.25 with homemade chips) is a cooked-to-order (and usually a little rare) patty that's served on a seedless bun coated in Swiss and Cheddar cheeses and a generous handful of black olives. For best effect, ignore the onion ringlets, romaine lettuce and pickles and enjoy the Remoulade-style sauce on the other side of the bun.
A popular Riverdale hangout that hosts local, regional and occasional national acts, mostly rock. Cover charge, showtimes vary. No smoking, except on the patio.
