UPDATE:

BOBBY'S COUNTRY COOKIN' When we think of good hot plate lunches, we'd never think of finding that at a strip center in West Little Rock. But here it is. And at high noon on a Monday, we're behind about 50 other people and shuffling along in a 15-minute line dance studying the menu board and looking over the half wall at what others ordered and were eating. For speed, they do have a simple price system. Plate lunches with an entree and two sides with cornbread or roll costs $7 even, tax included. Drinks are $1, tax included. Homemade pies, $2, tax included. There are various other plate lunch options. Four entree selections rotate daily from a list of over 20 available and 12 vegetables are offered. We devoured a chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes covered in hot white gravy and turnip greens. Companion went with a healthier baked chicken (leg and thigh), black-eyed peas and the greens, too. The turnip greens were sweet, which we thought a little strange. We topped our lunch with a slice of pecan pie. It wasn't homemade. We'd still go back. Just maybe not right at noon. 301 N. Shackleford, 224-9500, no alcohol, CC, L, Mon.-Fri., $.
