Little Rock's settlers built their city on a barbecue bayou, and for decades their city sunk two feet a year into the smoky, tangy quagmire until they found a solution: drain the swamps of the sauce and slather it on their ribs. Eat your way out of a hungermire with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of savory barbecue, sides, and more at Lindsey's Hospitality House in downtown North Little Rock.
Open for lunch and dinner Monday through Saturday, Lindsey's fires up the grills and layers on its very own signature Bar-B-Q Sauce for all gracious guests. Diners who desire a down-home flight of flavor can soar across a "Bar B Q Dinner," which pairs a two-pack punch of sides such as coleslaw, fried okra, black-eyed peas, and more, with featured helpings of tender beef ($7.95), ribs ($8.50), or catfish ($7.00), among others. Bread is nature's napkin, but it's also a superb soaking complement to a juicy, jumbo chopped-pork sandwich ($3.95). As barbecued bliss takes over the table, guests can casually converse and contemplate topped-off treats such as pecan pie, fried peach pie, or cheesecake ($1.75/slice).
Lindsey's, a family-owned and -operated barbecue haven, first ignited in the mind of D.L. Lindsey, Sr. way back in 1956, exactly one year before humanity started caring about barbecue or Internet cats. Now, its friendly crew of enthusiastic, yet appropriately saucy staffers is armed with all the Lindsey's Bar-B-Q Sauce they need to properly unite family, friends, and foodies once and for all.

- The barbecue isn’t just a specialty; it’s a family tradition dating back to their first restaurant in 1954. You can even buy their barbecue sauce by the bottle. It’s hard to pass up the fall-off-the-bone ribs, but an expanded menu includes several items – even spaghetti – along with all kinds of home-cooked vegetables as sides, like fried okra and black-eyed peas. – Greater Little Rock Guest Guide Staff, In Arkansas
- I love it. Lindsey's has the BEST food and service hands down. When my brother visits we have to go there to eat. The ribs are great, then I tried the fried chicken and it was also great. You can't go wrong with either and make sure you try the fried apple pie...to die for. – Alton, Yahoo! Local
Lindsey's Hospitality House
In 1956, residents of North Little Rock began catching mouthwatering whiffs of smoked ribs and chopped pork. Those aromas emanated from a spot called Lindsey's Bar-B-Q. Stepping inside, they found the source: a pit master named D.L. Lindsey Sr. Today, his son Donnie Lindsey II and his wife Eleanor carries on the family tradition at Lindsey's Hospitality House, located just a block away from his father's former eatery.
Lindsey II prepares many of the same specialties his dad served, including smoked chicken and racks of ribs paired with sides, such as glazed carrots and black-eyed peas. Patrons can relax in the dining room or arrange a catered feast in the restaurant's banquet room, which comfortably seats more than 200 people.
