Restaurants

The area has plenty of franchised establishments such as Pizza Hut, Popeye’s, Burger King, Subway and Taco Bell, but you can also find places that serve wings and seafood. The majority of restaurants are located along South University Avenue and close to the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.

Wing Shack has been operating for over 10 years in Oak Forest. Wing flavors have been taken to a whole new level by saucing the wings in a secret recipe. Patrons are rewarded with interesting flavors of wings that are fresh and hot. Flavors like Suicide hot, lemon pepper and mesquite BBQ are finger-licking good. The menu also has dinners such as catfish, jumbo shrimp, chicken strips or nuggets and pork chops - not to mention the 19 sides and extras to make your meal complete. Too bad the place is closed on Sunday and Monday.

Kitchen Express sometimes has live jazz music to accompany your meal. The prices are reasonable for breakfast, lunch or dinner with the seasoned-to-perfection catfish a must-try. Patrons say that the Grandmother or Hungry Man breakfast gets the attention it deserves because of the generous portion of food on the plate.

Catfish City & BBQ Grill combines food and atmosphere to make it the perfect spot for family dining. If you don’t want to dine in, you can get your meal on the go just by calling in your order and scheduling a pick-up time. Patrons use this service for tailgate parties, family picnics and those busy nights when cooking a meal just isn’t possible. Drive-through services are available if you are looking for a quick meal with fresh ingredients. Pulled pork and beef brisket sandwiches are among the best items on the menu. Of course, catfish options are plentiful and combinations are endless and include shrimp or ribs on the side.

For an exciting evening of entertainment and dining, head to Murry’s Dinner Playhouse where theatre and food are combined. Nightlife often takes patrons to Refined Ale Brewery or Zack’s Place for a game of pool.

History

Parks

To the west of the neighborhood are Boyle Park, University Park and Oak Forest Park. Residents visit these parks because they're quiet, free to use, kid-friendly and dog-friendly, as long as they are kept on-leash. Just across the freeway, families can enjoy a day at Little Rock Zoo.

The 250 acres of urban parkland known as Boyle Park was donated to the city in 1929. The park has been classified as unimproved woodland, which means it primarily consists of open meadows and forested areas with trails for hiking and biking. However, Boyle Park also contains a small pond with plenty of wildlife and a playground.

The Little Rock Zoo was founded in 1926 and when it opened, only had two animals; an abandoned timber wolf and a circus-trained bear. It has steadily grown to house over 700 animals with one very notable animal: Francois, a sloth bear.
