Every Meal is an Adventure

One reason Hot Springs continues to be one of America’s favorite destinations, decade after decade, is the food! When you think of Arkansas, you think about southern-style soul food, and you’re not wrong, but that’s just the appetizer. The Spa City is filled with delicious domestic and international cuisine, spanning the whole range of culinary styles and traditions. When you’re here, the whole world is on your plate!

Simply the Best

Hot Springs is home to some legendary restaurants, and no trip to the Spa City is complete without them. At or near the top of everyone’s list is McClard’s Bar-B-Q, a phenomenal BBQ joint universally accepted as the best in the state and maybe on the planet. DeLuca’s Pizzeria Napoletana is equally good and another spot you just can’t miss. They’re open four days a week until the dough runs out, and it does every time.

Morning People

Breakfast isn’t just the most important meal of the day. It’s the tastiest! You can have it savory or sweet, hot or cold. The possibilities are endless. If it’s your first trip to Hot Springs, make sure to check out The Pancake Shop for a stack of famous pancakes and coffee. Find a friendly, diner-style breakfast with amazing omelettes at Megan’s Diner. Need caffeine fast? They brew some mean beans at Kollective Coffee + Tea.

The Lunch Bunch

Whether you want lunch fast or fancy, you’ll feel right at home in Hot Springs. Drop in at Pho Hoang My for a light lunch and the best noodles in town. Spice your day up southwest style with lunch at the Colorado Grill. Go upscale with a table at Cafe 1217, a hot spot for fancy sandwiches and casual dining.

Fine Dining

When compromise is not an option, Hot Springs offers some exceptional culinary experiences for the refined palate. Feeling adventurous? Enjoy Latin food at its finest on the outdoor patio at Rolando’s Restaurante. Or treat yourself at Vault, a unique fine dining establishment that gets every little detail perfect! Looking for the perfect steak? You can’t go wrong at 501 Prime or Bone’s Chophouse.

Everyday Specials

Great meals aren’t always served on white tablecloths. Sometimes they’re served on a picnic table in a styrofoam box with a paper towel. The true gourmet doesn’t judge a meal by its cover. Capo’s Tacos is a favorite local stop for tasty, inexpensive street tacos. Ditto for the cheesy bread and pizza at Sam’s Pizza Pub. Want terrific, quick-and-go Chinese food? Check out Wok Express. Find all the Southern staples at Phil’s Restaurant.
