This city, which is the birthplace of the well known retailer Walmart, has much more to offer its visitors than big deals. Bentonville will allow you to taste some delicious cuisine while smelling the fresh air of the Ozark, leaving a remarkable memory for life. For breakfast, start the day with some french cuisine at Crepes Paulette where you can get just what the name tells you: delicious crepes. For lunch, try Tusk & Trotter American Brasserie where a juicy and flavor-filled bison burger awaits your afternoon. If you are in the mood for some good, midwest Mexican cuisine, head down to Yeyo’s el Alma de Mexico or Table Mesa Bistro. Asian-inspired food is also a must try in this town. Head to Blu Fish House for some sushi, Pho Thanh for phở, or Flavors Indian Cuisine for all the cuisine of this south Asian country. Don’t mark this small town off your list for places to try, its community and cuisine are sure to impress.
