  • What's next: In an effort to continue to provide you with the best and most relevant content in a fun and efficient way, we're expanding our team, aiming to bring on a new full-time hire in the next few months! In conjunction with this, we're launching a reader revenue program where you can become a 'Fan' of NWA Daily through voluntary financial contributions to help us achieve goals like hiring new full-time team members!

Restaurant Highlight

Get Ready for Loma's Grand Opening Tomorrow

NWA Daily

It's time - Loma, launched by one of the owners of Tula in Fayetteville, officially opens tomorrow! We had a chance to get a sneak peek and dine at the restaurant last week, and we just couldn't wait to tell you about it.

  • A feast for the eyes: The stunning 9,000 sqft restaurant was designed by a Mexico City architecture firm and gives off the perfect warm and cozy vibes. And, when NWA isn't blanketed in snow or ice, there is an enormous rooftop patio to enjoy. Located in the ONE Uptown building, the location is prime and is another A+ addition to the Pinnacle Hills area.
  • A taste of Mexico: In addition to some of the classics we've come to know and love at Tula like the Guacamole and the Cochinita Pibil, we also tried some delicious plates exclusive to Loma. The Pork Belly Carnitas and and Chicharron De Ribeye were fantastic, savory starters. We finished the meal with Ahi Tuna which was incredibly fresh and flavorful and the Barbacoa, which was fall-off-the-bone tender and packed with flavor.

Go ahead and start making your reservations and see for yourself why the NWA Daily crew is already planning our return.
