If life is a highway, food is the fuel.

The restaurant cuisine of Arkansas was crafted by transportation… and by family heritage. Join author Kat Robinson and photographer Grav Weldon on this region-by-region exploration of the state’s classic and iconic restaurants. Learn how fried chicken came to a tiny burg called Tontitown. Find out who’s responsible for the creation of the Arkansas Delta Tamale. Discover who created the fried pickle – and how the Reuben sandwich made it to a majority of menus around the state.
