Described by the Arkansas Times as a "big-and-sloppy burger, fries, and onion rings joint," Burger Mama's chefs prepare homestyle meals at the restaurant's new location on Cantrell Road. Though burgers come standard with generous portions of mayo, mustard, and veggies, diners can upgrade their sandwiches with add-ons such as pepper jack cheese, bacon, grilled onions, and gnome hats. Catfish fillets sizzle in baskets, flanked by side dishes such as fried okra or onion rings. In a review of the burger joint, another Arkansas Times reporter noted that chefs incorporate "what seems like a pint of ice cream in thick, enormous homemade milk shakes."
Whether customers want to relax at the bar after work or enjoy a night out with friends, Next Bistro and Bar accommodates patrons with a host of cocktails and wines and small, shareable tapas-style plates. On the menu, sliders are lined with pulled pork, beer-battered chicken, or gouda and caramelized onions, while dips and hummus sate the natural human urge to jab things with chips. Behind the bar, cocktail slingers shake and stir specialty martinis and pour wines by the glass.
After leading the University of Arkansas Cardinals' football team to an epic 16–0 victory against LSU in 1909, coach Hugo Bezdek referred to his players as "a wild band of Razorback hogs." The nickname quickly caught on, and the team has since embraced both the name and the mascot's wild ferocity, as evidenced by a tenacious fighting style and the players' uncanny ability to locate truffles buried in the end zone. With apparel, jewelry, and housewares bearing the legendary helmet hog, The Hog Zone—unaffiliated with the university itself—helps fans and alumni celebrate more than 100 years of UA pigskin tradition. In addition to stocking car decals, earrings, and T-shirts for both kids and adults, The Hog Zone hosts football-themed birthday parties for all complete with games and activities such as learning dances and chants to cheer on the team during physics exams.
