Update: Aisha's

Posted By on Fri, Aug 22, 2008 at 2:47 PM

AISHA'S We made two wrong assumptions about this new location in North Little Rock. First, we thought the restaurant had closed the Little Rock location and moved north of the river. Wrong. This Aisha's is a new third location. Second, we're so used to everyone else serving "wings" as chopped small pieces for hot wings. But here they serve whole wings with about a dozen sauces available. We got three extra large ones in a wings plate that also came with fresh, hot fries. A bargain at $4.29. We also sampled a half-pound pork rib dinner with potato salad and tomato relish for $6.99. The three large meaty ribs were lightly covered in a mild barbeque sauce. And one more in the group ordered the three piece catfish fillet dinner with fries, coleslaw and hush puppies for $7.99. The crunchy, hot fillets covered the dinner plate with sides underneath. We could eat a bowl full of the coleslaw and hushpuppies. If you can't decide what to order, there’s sampler dinner of one rib, one catfish fillet and one chicken wing with fries — only $5.99. We were very tempted by the desserts offered. So we planned ahead to leave room for sweet potato pie and pecan pie by not eating our whole meal and taking our leftovers home. You’d be well advised to plan ahead, too. 3824 JFK Blvd., NLR, 379-9074, 2900 S. University, LR, 562-4555, 1106 W. 16th St., Pine Bluff, 534-2969, no alcohol, CC, LD, Mon.-Sat., $-$$.
