The food news coming out of Conway lately definitely has our tastebuds rocking … and rolling. The rumor mill has been running wild concerning the city getting its first Rock N Roll Sushi location. And that pot has been stirred once again. A post in the Facebook group Conway Food News and Reviews shows some concept art for a location, reportedly set for Lewis Plaza and to be opened in early 2022. AY About You has reached out to a representative with Rock N Roll Sushi and will continue to update this developing story with more information as it becomes available.
Snag-A-Salad in Conway appears to be close to reopening. On July 6, the business posted on Facebook: “Who is ready for us to open back up here in Conway AR?!?!? Stay tuned into the page.”
And that’s not all. On July 20, Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers is opening its Conway location on Oak Street. Chicken, chicken, chicken, what combo you pickin’?
While chickens don’t technically fly, they do have wings. That’s a good enough segue for us for all the food event news that has been flying around as of late.
Like, did you hear the Arkansas State Fair is set to make a triumphant return this year? That includes a full midway, and a little birdy (again with the puns) told us that the food court is getting an upgrade this year.
The International Greek Food Festival is also returning in the fall. Set for the first weekend of October, this year’s event will include an online ordering/drive-through pick-up system for all of your favorite festival fare.
Today is National French Fry Day. One of the greatest days of the year as far as we’re concerned. Where will you be celebrating?
Tune back in next week for the next taste of Arkansas food news.
