Big Rock Opening.

Posted By on Mon, Oct 26, 2009 at 1:40 PM

Amazing, the number of people who turned out for the opening of Big Rock Bistro at Pulaski Technical College's Main Campus in North Little Rock. Sure, there were oodles of students waiting for a bite for lunch... but there were also scores of others lured in by the chance to try out the new eatery for free. Good reviews all around -- yes, it was a frenzy, but the crowds were all fed, and the food was great. More on the jump.

The crowd was massive, even 10 minutes before the big ceremony.

Once inside, diners were treated to a multitude of stations -- salad bar and drink stations on the right, a pasta station and hot plate station on the left, deli and cheeseburger and hot dog options straight ahead and a pizzaria in the back. This ain't your grandmother's college cafeteria.



Even with hundreds coming through the doors, dishes were made to order in a timely fashion. Call it trial by fire, but Big Rock Bistro's opening seems to be a safe bet -- this place cooks. I'm sure we'll be hearing more about it. Oh, and a thumbs up for the potentially overlooked but certainly divine Reece's Pieces Bread Pudding.
