not from XNA to Fayetteville. There are some shuttles to Rogers/Bentonville, but none to Fayetteville.

Are there no hotel shuttles?

A few for the B'ville/Rogers hotels, but usually you have to be a confirmed guest.  Also need to arrange in advance they don't have regular shuttle service that say runs on the hour.

If you have never been to XNA it's 10 miles of nowhere in every direction.  Plenty of taxi/car/pay shuttle services available just not enough hotel traffic to have regular service.

Can call http://jimsexpress.com/.  They may be running some special and have shuttle busses.  They seem to be doing a lot with shareholders so as they are running people to and from Fayetteville/XNA on Friday may be able to catch a good deal on a back haul.

Any suggestions? I'm trying to get a flight that will put me in NWA around 12:30. Friends can't pick me up due to work/game.

Is there a reasonable way that I can get to Baum without renting a car? I'm staying with a friend and won't have any need for a rental car other than to get to Baum.

Do y'all have uber in NWA? Does it operate as far out as XNA?

Thanks!
Can't be done, just forget it...might as well give me the ticket...

I'd wager renting a car is significantly cheaper than a cab ride.  XNA is literally in the middle of nowhere, and Baum is about as far south in Fayetteville as you can get.  You're probably looking at a 30 mile cab ride.  Cab rides from Dickson street to Rogers run upwards of $50, so renting a car is likely your best bet.

That's why I was asking. You're correct.

Ended up coordinating with a friend who is flying in from Houston. Neither of us need a rental car so we're gonna split a fare.

I've eaten at several of those places. McClards, Sims, Rivertowne & Sassy's are legit.

I've also been to Penguin Ed's, Whole Hog & HB's, but the four above really stand out to me.

Definitely some that shouldn't be on the list, and several, way too low. It's been my experience that all BBQ restaurant's need a minimum of three visits to establish their cred.

Eaten at a lot of those, pretty good list.  Mickey's in Hot Springs used to be awesome, I love McClards but I have found you either love it or hate it.  Very unique BBQ.  If you have never had a McClard's Tamale Spread you are missing out.

Agreed.  Nick's is too greasy, and Gene never could make bbq.  It sucked when it was Sweet Pea's.

Furthermore, and this goes for any place:  LEAVE THE [CENSORED] SLAW OFF.

If there's a better place for a pulled pork sandwich than Kibbs in Stuttgart, I want to try it. I haven't eaten at any of the ones ranked above it.

Craig's was awful when I ate at the one they opened in Beebe several years back. It must not have improved much afterwards. It didn't last long.

The last time I ate at Gene's was after a funeral for one of my wife's family. We knew it wasn't good since we had been there before but felt like since it was family we should be with them. We swore we would never eat there again.

Brother's BBQ in Heber USED to be really good when they were located by KFC but since they moved down by the bypass something is different and the bbq isn't half as good.  Don't know if they changed meat vendors or what but it's just run of the mill food now.

Nice list but they left off the "Smokin Buns" on 107 past the back gate of the LRAFB in Jacksonville. Pig n Chik in Sherwood is also pretty decent along with the Corky's in Lakewood Village in NLR.

Sassy's is a BBQ joint, and as far Fayetteville goes, the best one. I've eaten at at least 2/3rds of these places and wouldn't go back to half of those. Some of the best places are trailers set up on the side of the road, but seldom get mentioned.

Sho Nuff, if it's the same family, has been part of Fayetteville lore for decades. Back in the 70s it was in a little white building on the corner of S.Mill street and E. South street in what used to be lovingly referred to as "the Holler"....the old man and his old son made some ridiculously good BBQ. Then it disappeared. For a LONG time.

I was just curious if the newest version might be the same family with the same recipes. Not a fan of Sassy's - but to each his own.
