OPEN 24 HOURS:  Bensons Grill in Ft. Smith

  • OPEN 24 HOURS: Benson's Grill in Ft. Smith
There's more to dining than what's supped. There's the experience, and how it brings back memories. Such an experience was mine on venturing to Fort Smith and visiting Benson's Grill a couple of times.

UNUSUAL:  Sweet Potato Pancakes

  • UNUSUAL: Sweet Potato Pancakes
While there, I had one item I've never tried anywhere before, sweet potato pancakes. Listed on the menu as a "Southern Delicacy," these eight inch deep brown rounds taste like Thanksgiving, not too sweet but fragrant with cinnamon and nutmeg and aching for maple syrup. Having been exposed to way too much breakfast these past few weeks, it was great to find something new and exotic to me.

Of course, the company of friends certainly made most of my time at Benson's enjoyable, just like my college days. Read more over at Tie Dye Travels.
