The Little Rock Visitor’s Bureau kicked off their annual Restaurant Month promotion over the weekend. Restaurant month is a way for the city to provide extra promotion for restaurants in the city during what is typically the slowest month of the year.
The big promotion comes by way of specials in each restaurant who chooses to participate (any Little Rock restaurant can participate as part of their A&P tax). At last count there are
84 85 participating restaurants, but you do not have time to read through that whole list just to pick out the best deals. So we have gone through those for you and picked out the 15 best. For the full list go to DineLR.com.
Best Overall Deals
A combination of price and quality of restaurant make these the best overall. It is hard to beat the Pantry’s 15% off your entire meal, not just a single item. The fold is offering up free queso with their most popular meal option, bonus points for having no restriction on how many people at a table can use it. Then Chef Shuttle, which is great because your deal is not restricted to any one restaurant, can be used for anything on Chef Shuttle.
