Four Arkansas restaurants made it onto Yelp’s list of the “Top 100 Places to Eat in 2021.” The eateries are all in Northwest Arkansas.
Wright’s Barbecue in Johnson, ranked No. 18 on the list, released Feb. 18. The restaurant, inside a small and unassuming white house at 2212 Main Drive, opened in October 2017. With a menu that specializes in Texas-style brisket, ribs, sausage, pulled pork and smoked chicken, the restaurant has gained legs as a go-to destination for nationally recognized barbecue. The local restaurant opened a second location in downtown Bentonville last year.
Yelp reached out to its users asking for requests and evaluated the restaurants based on reviews, volume of submissions and number of ratings to help determine the list.
The other restaurants on the list were Havana Tropical Grill in Rogers (No. 52), Sushi House in Bentonville (No. 81) and Khana Indian Grill in Fayetteville (No. 89).
Kelley Farm Kitchen, a women-owned vegan restaurant based in Harper’s Ferry, W.V., ranked No. 1 on the list.
