No. The KOA is probably at least 5 miles north on the interstate. I have stayed there twice. Nice park.

I saw a Mexican restaurant just outside the cluster of truckstops on the way to Tom Sawyer, called Pancho's. Having spent a fair amount of my life in south and central Texas, I was somewhat suspicious of a Mexican restaurant in NE Arkansas.

On the topic of food that's close to Tom Sawyer, however, we DID go to a restaurant we really enjoyed in Memphis, called Rizzo's Diner. I had seen it on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives and it's just across the I-55 bridge. It's a short walk from the National Civil Rights Museum complex.

Pancho's cheese drip is great and a staple at many cook outs across Memphis. You can get it a most grocery stores. Everything else is nothing to post about. I haven't tried Rizzo's yet, but I'll be on my list other the next week or two. A couple of great downtown eateries are Cozy Corner, also featured on dinners drive-ins and drives and Gus's fried chicken. If you are near Sun records, and near my studio, the trolley stop and Arepas and Salsa are good. The BBQ shop in midtown is my favorite.

Village creek is nice and I haven't stayed at Tom Sawyer, it's too close to home. If you need any local help or advice you can pm me.

The best place to eat in Memphis is 85 miles away, in Oxford, Mississippi: City Grocery.

Well, maybe the Germantown Commissary serves good ribs in a homey way, something like Dreamland, in Tuscaloosa, Alabama does. Neither can hold a candle to PAPPY'S SMOKEHOUSE in St. Louis, MO.

Just sayin .....

We'll maybe if you had said New Orleans, I'd understand. Been to both City Grocery and the G'town Commissary and they are good not the best, but solid. I look forward to trying the other two.

Cheers.

I'm kind of partial to Blues Alley, on Front Street in Memphis. Meals are kind of expensive, but very tasty, and with live music besides!

Blues Alley - The nation's finest jazz and supper club.

But it has been a few years since I was last in Memphis.
