Hot Springs, Arkansas: McClard's Bar-B-Q

Bill Clinton seems like a man who knows good barbecue when he finds it. He reportedly says McClard's is his favorite such restaurant, anywhere. Who are we to disagree?

Thus we joined the many tourists who no doubt have dropped by this place to see how it is.

First of all, it's rather small - there are a limited number of booths and tables. When we were there, everyone seemed to know everyone, and the waitresses called the customers "Hon." Perfect.

McClard's goes through lots and lots of meat in the course of a day, and our sandwiches were quite good. According to legend, the restaurant one time took a sauce recipe instead of a payment, and used it. The recipe is still locked in a safe after it proved very popular.

Both political parties can agree that this is worth a stop at mealtime.
