Chef Ken Dempsey will be in the Flyway Brewing kitchen on Sunday, October 29 from 12 p.m.-9 p.m. I suggest getting there early. If you’ve ever had Dempsey’s food, then you know what all of the fuss is about. Ken is a close friend and […]
Thoughts from my recent eating experiences across the Little Rock area.. Someone please stop me from making regular visits to Blue Cake for petit fours. They’re just too addictive, especially any that’s chocolate-based like the Cookies and Cream. A set of four is $10 … […]
Just look at the damn thing!
Listen, I’m not saying Flyway Brewing’s Double Beef Cheddar Bomb is the best cheeseburger in the Little Rock area. But I am saying it’s at least in the discussion. As we all know, the subjectivity of burgers is one of the all-time great food debates.
Yes, this is technically a slider, but don’t think for a second it’s a typical tiny, boring slider we’ve all seen a thousand times before. For $9, Flyway serves up two double-patty burgers on sourdough buns with chili mayo and a side of house-made sliced pickles.
And the best part?
That sheet of cheddar that melts over the patty and extends from the sides of the burger, forming a delicious cheese crisp that’s every bit as tasty as it is visually appealing.
All and all, you’re talking about a total of a 1/2-lb. of beef cooked to a perfect medium with a nice crust from the grill. Wash it all down with a brown ale or blueberry wheat beer and you’ve got yourself a great afternoon.
Save room for…
The Duck Confit Nachos are also a must-order. Rather than a pile of chips (which I also love), Flyway individually dresses each chip, in this case with a pile of cheddar Jack and tender duck meat, along with sides of chipotle cherry salsa, candied jalapenos, and pickled carrots.

You know I love El Palenque. Heck, I’ve written about my favorite hole-in-the-wall many times over the past few years, and usually, in glowing terms. Unfortunately, Saturday’s take-out came up way short. There are certain dishes I typically order at El P, like the shrimp […]
