You don’t have to leave Western Arkansas to sample a wide variety of cuisines from throughout the world. Sure, country cooking and good old-fashioned burgers are in ample supply throughout the region. But there are a large number of Asian, Latin American and Mediterranean restaurants in the region as well, along with several fine-dining establishments.
“It is amazing how many different types of restaurants there are around here,” says Russ Jester, marketing, communications and event services manager for the Fort Smith Convention and Visitor’s Bureau. “It’s authentic food from all these different cultures.”
