It's good to be hungry when you're in Fayetteville, but it's hard to stay that way. Though some things have changed due to coronavirus, our local restaurants continue to provide unique culinary experiences. From curbside pickup to socially distanced dining, they are committed to following guidelines and keeping you and their staff safe.

Fayetteville’s authentic, diverse culinary scene continues to grow thanks to a new wave of restauranteurs showcasing regional ingredients and reinventing traditional dishes. Unique culinary experiences include thriving farm-to-table restaurants and artisan coffee shops that roast locally. Long-time staples continue to be must-try institutions.

Outdoor dining is available at many of our restaurants along with sidewalk cafes and public picnic areas. Plus, an impressive display of food trucks serving lunch, dinner, snacks and sweets can be found across several areas of town.

There’s a new truck in town! If you visit one of our favorite food spaces, the Yacht Club on College, you’ll probably notice Moby the Narwhal and his big, blue bus.

It’s time to dust off that wanderlust bucket-list and start making your travel plans. While you’re making a list of must-see sites and restaurants, why not plan a “beercation” too? It’s our new favorite word and with brewery themed destinations on the rise in the coming year, Fayetteville, Arkansas is right up there with the big dogs.

February, 2017

We all need a place to call home; a proverbial hearth that simultaneous garners sanctuary, familiarity, and inspiration alongside the people we love and cherish.  Home is not simply a place, but rather a state of mind and, at times, even of taste, touch, and smell.  The fragrance of freshly brewed coffee, frying bacon, and cigarette smoke transcends me to my childhood and the home kitchen of my grandma Dighero as she poetically maneuvers through her standard, grease laden daily breakfast.  No matter when:  childhood, adolescence, adulthood….I could count on those three intermingled perfumes to make me feel safe, and perpetually hopeful.
