MTTS Day 7, Dallas-Memphis, Arkansas dining suggestions

First, if you’re starving before you cross the border, stop in Texarkana (TEXAS – city straddles the state border) at Bryce's Cafeteria, 2021 Mall Dr. (Summerhill Rd., Exit 222, right off I-30 and right before the state border), 903-792-1611, (open Sunday, 11 am). The place is an institution, been around since the 1930s, and even has a drive-through. Try the fried green tomatoes or fried okra if you never have, and the pies are awesome. As you drive on and cross the border, a good stop for a lunch break picnic is at the Arkansas Tourist Information Centers just on the other side of Texarkana, AR, probably the nicest official visitor’s center in the state.

Throughout Arkansas, the Dixie Cafe chain offers good, reasonably priced, consistent, southern-style comfort food.

Hot Springs recommendations (my other faves are closed on Sunday - we are an old "Blue Laws" state after all)):

The Pancake Shop (a Hot Spring’s institution since the 1940s), 216 Central Avenue (Hot Springs National Park), 501-624-5720

Rod's Pizza Cellar (another Hot Spring’s institution), 3350 Central Avenue, 800-773-7637,

Little Rock recommendations (again, many other faves are closed on Sunday):

Reportedly, MTTS will be hosting some sort of small event at the Clinton Library Museum Store in Little Rock’s Rivermarket area (, so here are several restaurants there, which are open on Sunday:
Boscos, 501-907-1881 (
Flying Fish, 501-375-3474 (
Café 42, 501-350-1818 ( at the Clinton Library) Sunday brunch, 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. (Tip -you can enter restaurant w/o paying admission - just tell entrance security that you only want to go to Cafe 42)

Faves further afield in Little Rock (open Sunday):
Loca Luna Restaurant, 3519 Old Cantrell Road, 501-663-4666
Vieux Carre, 2721 Kavanaugh Blvd., 501-663-1196
Vino's Pizza & Brewery, 923 West 7th Street, 501-375-8466

If you're just looking for a quick bite and want to send an e-mail or check the web, there's free WI-FI outdoors in the Rivermarket, and most of the McDonald's in Little Rock have free WI-FI.
