Someday when I travel to Arkansas this will be the first place I stop to eat. The prestigious James Beard Award of America’s Classics went to Jones Bar-B-Q in Arkansas. James Jones is both owner and pitmaster, a one-man whirlwind in a tiny two-table restaurant. Jones Barbecue diner dates back to at least 1910 and it may be the oldest black family-owned restaurant in the south. James Jones says, “The way it’s going for some reason it’s not gonna last long.”
