Zagat's names Franke's pie top desert in Arkansas

What's the best dessert in Arkansas? According to restaurant guide experts Zagat's, it's the Karo Nut Pie at Franke's cafeteria. Is it the dead-level best dessert in the state? Well, there's no way to really make an objective decision about that, of course, but I don't have an issue with this choice by Zagat's. Franke's is a Little Rock institution—and it is arguably the oldest restaurant in the state. The family-run restaurant is a from-scratch paradise of tasty down-home goodies, and that pecan pie is just one of the many delights available.

What do you all think about this choice? If you were nominating a best dessert in the state, what would it be? I'm honestly not much of a dessert eater, but I think this pie is pretty great.
