My husband and I took a road trip through Arkansas, Kansas and Missouri over a long weekend. With the tight schedule, we didn’t get to explore Arkansas much- but we did visit Jonesboro on our way!
JONESBORO has a cute little downtown area with several restaurants.
SKINNY J’S was our first food stop. Don’t let the name fool you- The food does not make you skinny, but man does it taste good! I got the Pimento Cheese Burger (topped with fried jalapeños and pickles and bacon) with grits on the side. Scott got The Juicy J (a pepperjack grilled cheese and burger patty topped with chicken, mushrooms, peppers, onions, queso, and tomatoes) with a side of sweet potato fries dipped in syrup.
If you know me, you know I love taking photos by murals. This town was full of them! These two murals are right off the main street in downtown Jonesboro.
On our way back through Arkansas, we stopped at DEMO’S SMOKEHOUSE. They had some of the best BBQ I’ve ever tasted! When we told them it was our first time visiting, they were nice enough to give us a free sample of ribs. They said we had to try them, and they were right! I would highly recommend eating here for all the barbecue lovers out there.
