Re: “Little Rock South Main St. bike lanes coming soon

ok72076, It takes considerable knowledge just to realize the extent of your own ignorance. To wear ignorance as a badge of honor is deplorable.

Re: “Mr. Dunderbak's grand re-opening is veggie friendly

My review of the “New” Mr. Dunderbak’s… Back in the day Mr. Dunderbak’s had some amazing food and the atmosphere screamed "Oktoberfest!”, it was little place with big atmosphere. I rate the new Mr. Dunderbaks a 2.5, just above "Meh" but a tad lower than "A-OK!’ It is just another fast food restaurant now. #verydisappointed
