What Dish is Arkansas Serving Up at This Weekend’s Tailgate?
Bet you didn't know that we have a signature tailgate dish.
There's just something about football, right? Whether high school, college or professional the atmosphere is electric. I enjoy the pregame festivities almost more than the game itself.
The tailgate is where the party is at!
Fans gather around the stadium in preparation for the game. There are games, music and, of course, food. I usually find myself gravitating toward the biggest grills and the biggest pots. That's where the good stuff is.
And the best part is that every tailgate is different.
Travel Channel has put together a list of the 50 States of Tailgating to celebrate these pregame offerings. These dishes are ones that you will most likely find at a tailgate in each state. For Arkansas it's all about the cheese dip.
Don't confuse this with queso.
Back in 1935, Blackie Donnelly served his guests "cheese dip" at Mexico Chiquito in North Little Rock. His restaurant is still a staple on the Cheese Dip Trail and that area hosts the World Cheese Dip Championships. So will you be serving this up this season?
