Obviously this is a very serious and contentious subject. But as part of our recent BBQ theme leading up to the holiday, I would like to hear your thoughts on the matter. I'll start-
I hold that the best brisket in Arkansas is at Sports and Beyond on 12th Street. Don't believe me? Go try 'em.
For best ribs, I say go to Mr. Mason's at Capitol and Chester in Little Rock. The music is loud, and it gets crowded at lunch real fast, but the ribs (seen below from today's lunch) are smokey and tender. Good selection of beer.
For best pulled pork- I'm a fan of Lindsey's at 203 East 14th Street in North Little Rock. Nothin fancy here, but the pulled pork is to die for. The line can get long, for good reason, so get there early. I also like their catfish.
For chicken, I say Sim's BBQ (multiple locations) is a tie with Whole Hog. By the way, Whole Hog is my wife's favorite overall choice for BBQ and its hard to argue. Speedy service and award winning que. I gotta try one of those spuds.
By all means, tell us your favorite BBQ places in Arkansas.
