Our readers have spoken. Once again, the Arkansas Times presents your choices for the best places to dine in Arkansas, from burgers to boeuf bourguignon. We've got your overall favorite place: The Pantry. We've got your choice for chef: Scott McGehee. And bakeries, barbecue joints, brunch spots and other bests. We've fleshed out our list with articles on Star of India, whose owner, Sami Lal, knows your name; new juice bars, where concoctions of roots and fruits help you up your game. For food truck aficionados, there's a near comprehensive list of when and where you can find your favorites. We say ole to La Hacienda's veinte anniversary. Keep this bookmarked for next time you can't decide where to dine out, and let the readers guide you.
