The Oark Cafe serves up a delicious burger that can only be outdone by the warm welcome and down-home hospitality of the owners. We had Riley with us Sunday afternoon so going inside to eat was out of the question. Allowing Riley to stay in the truck while we went inside was also not an option. No problem for the folks in Oark. Pull up a seat on the front porch and they will bring lunch out to you. The father of the owner was helping out in the kitchen but took a break to come out and talk with us. He made it a point to thank everyone who stopped and wish them safe travels as they left.
A big THANKS to Dan and Jeff for letting me in on this well hidden gem of a joint.
He’s a shot of Riley and Erin. This is on the upper Buffalo River at a low water bridge near Ponca, AR. When we have floated this river in the past there would be about a foot to two feet of water flowing where Erin and Riley are standing.
