Most restaurants have a kids menu. Some of the menus are very good, although others could use a little work.
They say if you are 12 and under you can order off the kids menu. Some really good places in Little Rock serve only boxed mac and cheese or packaged chicken nuggets, which is fine, but these need to be of better quality. For example, you could do homemade mac and cheese and fresh cooked chicken nuggets. This is so kids can eat nutritiously!
Some restaurants in Little Rock do a great job with this, these include Chuy’s, South on Main, Franke’s and El Porton.
I would like to see more of these items on menus: lasagna, soups (including potato, chicken noodle, and tomato) and chicken sandwiches. I also would want to see homemade pastas with an assortment of different sauces you might find on the adult menu. Caesar salads, tacos and enchiladas would also be great. For sides, I would like to see tiny baked potatoes with a variety of toppings. For fruit and veggies, I would like to see watermelon, strawberries, blueberries, roasted broccoli, green beans, and carrots. All should be fresh produce.
I always appreciate places with good kid menus and I hope to see more in Little Rock soon. That is my dream for a kids menu!
