The results are in and the finalists have been announced. It's the 2024 Arkansas Food Hall of Fame.

There are so many great restaurants in the state of Arkansas that the Division of Arkansas Heritage decided back in 2016 to celebrate Arkansas' culinary heritage by recognizing the best restaurants, proprietors and food-themed events every year. Did your favorite restaurant make the list?
