Bushie, lets see if I can get a reply to you. I wrote one an hour or so ago, but then my computer froze when attempting to spellcheck it, and since then have been unable to connect with www.roadfood.com,
or when did connect, then could go no further. Was experiencing some of these same problems with the roadfood website yesterday, but not experiencing them either day when connecting to/connected with other websites. Has anyone else experienced any such roadfood website problems recently, or is this something unique to my computer?
As for Burge's, its an old southwest Arkansas institution, having been located in Lewisville for at least 20 years, and really longer it seems to me. I know I ordered smoked turkeys from it when living in Alabama years ago. Lewisville is the original Burge's location, but it indeed has a shop in The Heights in Little Rock now. I've only been by Burge's Lewisville once in recent years but visit the Little Rock location much more frequently, more so to pick up bulk smoked turkey or other food items to take as my contribution to some gathering or to the home of someone am visiting than to just get a sandwich. It seems to me the Little Rock location offers a bigger variety of foods than does the Lewisville one, but as is so often the case, it lacks much of the charm and uniqueness of the original. I think Burge's foods are wonderful, particularly its smoked turkey, but I know several people who consider its products, particularly its sandwiches, so overpriced and/or skimpily filled that they no longer patronize it. I understand to some extent their complaints concerning its sandwiches, but think its bulk meats are much more competitively priced/better values than are its sandwiches, and I always thoroughly enjoy them. Sorry I'm not able to .provide more detailed info re Burge's, but hopefully some other Arkie will be able to do so. Hope this doesn't contain too many misspelled words and typos. Am going to post it rather than risk losing it again attempting a spellcheck. Glad you and Mason enjoyed Burge's and hope you found other worthy dining sites in the state.
Oh, CoreyEl, I don't know anything about Burge's barbecue, but as I said, I really like its smoked turkey. Know there are any number of good barbecue places in Little Rock. I swear I can't think of the name of my favorite but it occupies 3 adjoining buildings (having rapidly grown from 1 original building) near a Tuesday Morning, Alltel retail shop, and an Office Depot in a strip shopping mall down in what I call "the flats" area of Cantrell and in vicinity of Rebseman Park Road turnoff. The 3 guys who own this place are big into these barbecue competitions with the shop there being filled with trophies they've won. I love the fact that at their shop there are so many meat selections with choice of 6 different sauces. Welcome to Arknasas and hope you find the Riverfront Farmers' Market as enjoyable and as pleasant a surprise as I did upon my first ever visit there last Saturday. Liketoeat
