New Locations, Same Good Food

Two restaurants will be opening new locations on College Avenue in Fayetteville - both are staples in the region...

  • Well butter my... according to County property records, Buttered Biscuit's owner has purchased the former Pizza Hut location on College Avenue. The BB originated in Bentonville and recently opened a second location in Springdale. The restaurant serves up southern goodness like pancakes, egg dishes and sandwiches, but also signature dishes like chicken waffles and acai bowls. -Fayetteville Flyer

  • TJ's Sandwich Shop is relocating just across the street from its current location in the old KFC building at the corner of Rolling Hills Drive and College Avenue. TJ’s first opened in 2014 and focuses on sandwiches, along with salads, soups and other items. - Fayetteville Flyer

Crossing into Paradise

Recently, Texas Monthly's Pam LeBlanc crossed over state borders in search of biking paradise in Northwest Arkansas. As soon as she arrived, LeBlanc quickly realized Bentonville was more than just bike trails.

  • Quote: "I’ve found that the whole culture here focuses as much on museums and public art as it does pedaling," LeBlanc said. "Toss in plenty of good coffee shops, a hip hotel, and a respectable dining scene, and it’s easy to understand why adventure travelers as far away as Austin are buzzing about it."

  • LeBlanc raved about local hotspots such as Airship Coffee, 21c Museum Hotel, Bike Rack Brewing Company, Pedaler's Pub and more.

Onwards and Upwards for the Ozarks

The Northwest Arkansas Council has announced the creation of a new quarterly speaker series that will give organizations, companies, and individuals a platform to share news, events, and other information with a regional audience.

  • The new program, called "Onward Ozarks" will host it's first event on April 28 at 8am via Zoom, but may evolve into an in-person breakfast later this year, depending on where we are with COVID-19 by then.

  • “Onward Ozarks gives us an opportunity to bring topics of interest to residents, and at the same time highlight the meaningful work of our members and organizations throughout the region.” said Nelson Peacock, CEO and President of the Northwest Arkansas Council.

  • The first presentation on April 28 will focus on the planned improvements to Northwest Arkansas National Airport (XNA).
