Every local we asked, “Where should we eat lunch?” had the same answer – the Flying Fish.
All the walls in this downtown Little Rock diner look like this photo. It’s a little weird until you know the story.
Turns out, if you bring in a mounted fish (like Big Mouth Billy Bass) for the wall of this Little Rock eatery, you get a fish dinner for free. ( Plus your name (and fish) on the wall for posterity. )
We didn’t know, so we had to pay for our catfish dinners. Worth it. I had the baked, and Mark had the cornmeal-crusted fried version. Both delicious, but I liked my accompaniments better, especially the thinly sliced, highly seasoned squash.
