The "Rink" wasn't an eating establishment, but was a very popular drinking/event/concert place in the 70's and early 80's......   The stories that place could tell if it was still around......

Nonsense. It doesn't get healthier than processed pork.

There's nothing quite like a congealed patty of pork and pork like products slathered in sauce to give your digestive and immune systems something to practice on.

Saw Jason and the Scorchers play there on a wickedly cold night instead of watching an OT NCAA Final Four Championship game (Glen Rice led Michigan over Seton Hall). They kept blowing a breaker. Talked to Jason quite a bit waiting for it to be fixed. Turns out he likes Bob Wills almost as much as I do. Who knew?

It was.

They closed, as my grandfather says, from the landlord not wanting to make upgrades to the facilities. The landlord is a government agency that runs a rehabilitation center in an old motel next door. So the owner just closed up shop instead.

There were Kelly's in Wynne, Batesville, Bald Knob, and one other place that escapes me. The guy that founded them is gone now, and he built one for each of his children.

They were an Arkansas-built, small business. They leased the one in Bald Knob to that Chinese guy from the commercials. Hilarious. He said he was a good-ol boy, with good down home cooking.

I lol'd



FWIW it reopened in the old Duck Blind in the Ramada.

Several people, from my hometown, were driving to our high school football game in Mena and stopped at that place to eat. Unfortunately, they got food poisoning. That was many years ago though.

There used to be a pretty famous family owned place just south of Pine Bluff on the highway toward Monticello.  I can't think of the name of it for the life of me, but it was family owned and an institution in those parts.  If anyone remembers the name from that description and also knows if it's still open, it's worth a meal or two.  Sorry my memory is so bad on the name.
