Good Eats Before and After the Holidays


I think we all may look forward to Thanksgiving cooking, however we certainly busy up the eatin' holes around town on the day before and after any major holiday! Lunch today at an old North Little Rock standby, Gadwall's Grill, was no exception. Always packed with hungry customers and fun duck stuff on the walls, this place is high on my list of good eats. Seems like no matter how full the parking lot...there's always room for you in Gadwall's. Also, good to see that they have weathered the storm and pulled together nicely from a fire disaster they had a while back.

Friendly and great service were on the menu today as well as the tasty Homemade Vegetable Beef Soup with Cornbread, a Soaked Salad, and the house wine of the South...refreshing Iced Tea.  All this for under $8.00! My only complaint is with the cake like cornbread.  Cooking 'real cornbread' the 'correct Southern way' via an iron skillet seems to have gone by the wayside at lots of eateries. They do have a great variety of burgers, chilies, nachos, and I hear from a few excited friends that they are even serving a fine breakfast on the weekends. Will have to 'waddle on in' some weekend soon to see what all the quacking is about.
