“we love everything about Rick’s Bakery. If you’re in town celebrating anything at all, go to Rick’s and get something special. Don’t miss their petit fors, cake with buttercream icing, blueberry cake donuts, apple fritters, or sausage rolls! This is certainly a Saturday morning favorite in town(note: not open on Sunday). You can also watch them decorate cakes here; free entertainment! ”

“There are many fine restaurants in Fayetteville, but it's hard to beat Penguin Ed's for consistently good food at a reasonable price. It's on Mission and Crossover, a mile from the Fayetteville Estate. Ed's is our Go-To restaurant when we're hungry and don't want to cook.”

BBQ Joint

“2019 dates: September 25th - 28th. Bikes, Blues and BBQ is the world’s largest charity motorcycle rally that benefits women, children, and the underserved members of the Northwest Arkansas community. Over the course of their 19 years, they have realized over $2 million to local charities. I know they appreciate your support of their event and the difference that you make for their non-profit organizations. It truly is one heck of an experience! ”

“Go here, go now! They are neck and neck with Hugo’s for best burgers in Arkansas! Don’t forget the fries and if you’re feeling frisky try the onion rings! This is true local fare by true local boys (the Feltner twins and their younger brother were born in Russellville and started their restaurant about 5 years ago). They have a nice covered patio and always have favorite sporting events on the TVs. ”
