Catfish. Arkansas may not be the top catfish producer, but big cats are a part of life around these parts. Finding a restaurant that only serves Arkansas-raised catfish? Well, it's a good thing -- especially when you're talking about whole catfish fillets. Check out the piece on Uncle Dean's Catfish and Such over on Tie Dye Travels. And, if you can, please explain to me why every Arkansas catfish restaurant serves that slice of raw onion with hot fish? I've lived in Arkansas almost my entire life, and I still don't know.
