Mysaline.com breaks the news
that Benton's Dairy Barn, at Edison and Cox Streets, is closing today. It has fans of its burgers and shakes, but it's best known as occupant of the building that was one of the filming locations for the 1996 movie "Sling Blade."

That is the movie where Billy Bob Thornton made the line about "pertaters" a big screen classic. The building's future is unclear, but the owner has made the current operators of the restaurant vacate.
