Savoring Stoby's.

The venerable restaurant with locations in Conway and Russellville is likely known best for its cheese dip, sold in grocery stores all over Arkansas.  But there's a lot more to Stoby's than just dip and sandwiches.

This humble offering, the Hickory Burger ($6.85 with savory hickory sauce and Cheddar cheese, shown above) is part of the new Night Grill menu.  There are many, many burgers among the offerings -- including a Patty Melt and a Jamaican Jerk Burger (rather spicy), as well as Tex-Mex options like quesadillas and nachos.  But it's the eponymous Stoby sandwich that's the center of the menu.  Three meats, two cheeses, Stoby's special sauce, lettuce, tomato, all on your choice of bread and with chips and a pickle spear for $5.95.

What you might not know about Stoby's is the great bakery.  The restaurant has been known for its fabulous pies and cakes as well as its more savory offerings for years.  Now, across the lot from the Russellville location, you'll find PattiCakes, the Stoby's bakery.  Run by Patti Stobaugh, the bakery features everything from daily bread selections to wedding cakes, and the scent of bakery products cooking is enough to start you salivating before you ever make it to the door. 

Check out Stoby's and PattiCakes in Russellville along D Parkway.  You'll find a Stoby's menu at the store's website, or give them a call at (479) 968-3816.  And see what you'll find at PattiCakes at the bakery website.

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
