Wright's Barbecue Hailed Arkansas's Best Barbecue Joint By Southern Living

NWA Daily

Wright's Barbecue is getting some well-deserved recognition as Southern Living's pick for Arkansas in their recent poll on The South's Best Barbecue Joint In Every State 2023.

  • Smokin: Founded by Jordan Wright in 2016, the barbecue joint has grown out of its original food truck into a craft barbecue empire with locations in Fayetteville, Bentonville, and Rogers, and feeds thousands of bbq-hungry fans at Donald W. Reynolds Stadium during football season.
  • The right way: Featuring Texas-style platters filled with thick-sliced brisket, spareribs, and mouth-watering sides like mac-and-cheese and bacon burnt ends, if you haven't tried Wright's... you're doing it wrong.
