Today the Buffet o’ Blog staff tried a fairly new restaurant here in Conway, AR, called Almost Famous. They specialize in smoked meats. Need I say more?
I tried the pulled pork sandwich, which was good. It was served on buttered Texas toast, with plenty of meat (on the regular size). Their fries were of the steak-cut variety and were good. The sweet tea was also good. So I recommend it. Sorry I didn’t get a picture… I was hungry.
They also have 1/2-pound hickory-smoked burgers and ribs and various other smoked meats. I’d like to try it again sometime. You can buy smoked meat by the pound, which I might have to look into (until I get a smoker). You can even buy smoked bacon, which sounds promising. They’re thinking about adding steaks and pork chops to their menu soon.
It’s located on Oak Street, going toward Vilonia, past the new fairgrounds, and it’s on the right. They also have an area for outdoor dining, for other months. Everyone that worked there was extra-friendly. Their normal hours are 11-7. It wasn’t crowded when we went.
FYI, I’m not affiliated with them, but I appreciate what they’re doing and want to spread the word since it’s out of the way and many people probably haven’t heard of it.
