Yeyo's Recognized In NYT's Best Fifty Restaurants In America

NWA Daily

The New York Times recognized Yeyo’s in Bentonville as one of 2022's top fifty restaurants in America. 

  • Family: Rafael Rios opened a food truck in 2012 to serve the traditional cuisine of his family’s native Michoacán, and affectionally called it Yeyo’s, the family title for his father Hector. A huge success, the family now operates two food trucks, their flagship restaurant in Bentonville, and the Mezcaleria & Taqueria in downtown Rogers.
  • Fresh: All the produce served in the restaurant is grown just a few miles away on the Rios' Family Farm and their high-quality pork and chicken are raised just outside of Bentonville at the Hanna Family Ranch

It's Pickin' Time On 59 This Weekend

City of Gravette

Hey, all you yard-sale-hunters and flea-market-fanatics, it’s Pickin’ Time on 59 this weekend, Sept 22-24.

  • Get in on the action: Some towns along Highway 59, like Gravette, won’t be requiring yard sale permits for residents on these days, even if your yard sale is not located along Highway 59. Check with your city, it might not be too late to set up your own yard sale!
