Jones Barbecue has been a part of the food culture in the Arkansas Delta for more than a century and at the diner it's all about barbecue. Current owner and pitmaster James Harold Jones says, "My wife calls this place my second wife. I open at 6am every morning and close whenever we sell out. My family has been making BBQ for four generations now. The recipes for my sauce and granddaddy’s slaw are top secret."
