10 Favorite Grocery Stores in Little Rock

10 Favorite Grocery Stores in Little Rock

We all have our go-to grocery spots. From large to small, these stores are where we go for anything from fresh ginger to a case of Diet Coke. Below are my 10 Favorite Grocery Stores in Little Rock. While my visits range from twice a […]

50 Little Rock Patios, Fall 2018 Edition

50 Little Rock Patios, Fall 2018 Edition

Patio, porch, deck … whatever you want to call it, the point is it’s cooling down outside, and before things get too chilly, let’s get out and enjoy those outdoor areas many of our local restaurants have to offer.

Ciao Baci

The porch at Ciao Baci is a wonderful place to have a glass of wine (or two) and partake in Chef Owen’s 5-course tasting menu. It’s quiet and relaxed outside, making it a perfect spot for date night or to hang with friends.

Petit & Keet

This is a very hip and modern patio area, which, like everything else at P&K, is well thought out and executed. When the weather is nice, this is the place to be.

The Pantry (both locations)

The Pantry Crest probably has the better patio but there’s just something I really enjoy about that small area at the WLR location. It’s nothing extravagant but it’s cozy.

Big Orange West

I’ve always enjoyed sitting outside at Big Orange West. It’s a nice place to take the kids, relax, have a burger, and do a little people watching.

NYPD Pizza

Again, nothing extravagant, but you could do far worse than devouring a Queens Deluxe Pizza at NYPD while breathing in a little fresh air. The location is super far west for many of us, but this patio is worth the drive.

Bark Bar

Bark Bar

I just had to include Bark Bar on this list. There is so much outdoor area to this place, and, let’s face it, you get the benefit of hanging with your best friend.

Milford Track

Yes, it’s a patio outside of a boring office building, but there’s a nice pond and the calmness of one of Little Rock’s best hidden gems … Milford Track. Order the pasta with grilled veggies (pictured above).

Milford Track

Baja Grill

Baja Grill’s outside area is covered and offers a nice lookout to Kavanaugh Blvd. Plus, you get to enjoy margaritas, queso, guacamole, and a cheese-drenched burrito, if you so choose. What’s not to love?

The Fold

The Fold’s patio has been a hit from Day 1, offering a perfect place for diners to consume tacos and cocktails in the Riverdale, one of the city’s more underrated dining areas.

The Root

The Root does have an outside garden area with seating, but the real draw is when they open the containers in the main eating area of the restaurant. Diners get the benefits of a roof but also the open air and view of Main Street.

42 bar and table

This is quite possibly Little Rock’s finest outdoor restaurant area. Beautiful views, modern setting, and an improved menu give diners the total package … and 42 is now open for dinner.

Southern Table Foods

This is one I’ve only walked past, but I very excited to give it a try. My first and only experience at STF was positive, and if it wasn’t raining, I probably would have partaken in the patio that evening.

La Terraza

Truly one of the better outdoor seating areas in town, La Terraza’s deck area offers a tranquil spot to enjoy a mojito and look out onto Kavanaugh Blvd.

El Torito Has it All

El Torito Has it All

“Little Rock’s food scene sucks. We are lacking so much.” Sound familiar? While we still have a long way to go, our food scene doesn’t suck. If some folks would actually check out different places instead of eating at the same 5-10 spots, I think […]

To Eat at Sandy’s is to Love Sandy’s

To Eat at Sandy’s is to Love Sandy’s

I’m not sure what percentage of Little Rock area residents have even heard of Sandy’s Homeplace Café, much less eaten at the little yellow house on 15th Street on the eastern edge of downtown. Heck, the restaurant has only been there for 40 years, serving […]
