For decades, Stuttgart residents would take three meals of the day at a little spot by the Riceland distribution point, over by the train tracks at the corner of Park and Michigan Streets. This little building, housed in a Quonset hut, was Little Chef.
A couple of years later, the end was nigh. The Arkansas Highway and Transportation
Today, there's a nice overpass where Little Chef once stood. And lots of people talk about the good food that was served there. From time to time I speak with duck hunters who are looking forward to having breakfast at the Little Chef while in Arkansas, and I have to break the bad news to them.
