If you are a foodie, then you know it's easy to find great food in Arkansas, but when a restaurant is recognized nationally for its food? Well, that's really big news.

We all love BBQ in fact, we love it so much that it wouldn't be surprising to find out it's in our DNA. My husband and I love to find those hidden gems when we are traveling. So, I'm excited to hear about this new place to try.

Sim's Bar-B-Que in Little Rock

Here's what lovefood.com said about Sim's Bar-B-Que,

  An Arkansas institution, Sim’s Bar-B-Que dates all the way back to 1937 and has two locations in Little Rock. It’s not fancy but customers love the mom-and-pop vibe and friendly staff. What to order? One of the sandwiches (pork ribs, chopped pork, chopped beef, smoked sausage or bologna) on white bread and its signature sweet and tangy sauce.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery. Keep reading to find out what the best beer is in each of the 50 states and Washington D.C.
