Newton County restaurant inducted into Arkansas Food Hall of Fame


A restaurant in Newton County was inducted into the Arkansas Food Hall of Fame 2023 Monday in Little Rock.

Ozark Cafe of Jasper was one of three restaurants recognized during the ceremony. They were joined by Bulldog Restaurant of Bald Knob and Kream Kastle of Blytheville.

Arkansas Heritage launched the Arkansas Food Hall of Fame program in 2016 to celebrate the state’s unique food traditions, and to educate Arkansans about our diverse food culture and heritage. The program recognizes Arkansas’s legendary restaurants, proprietors and food-themed events across the state. The downtown Little Rock mural illustrates this commitment to food and foodies in Arkansas and it portrays seven individual vignettes highlighting unique aspects of the state’s food culture.

Nominations for the seventh class of the Arkansas Food Hall of Fame were submitted from all 75 Arkansas counties for the program’s five categories. Finalists were announced in January from more than 1,800 nominations.
