Fort Smith Food & Drink

As the original gateway to The Wild West, Fort Smith was the last-chance stop between modern civilization and the untamed wilderness of Indian Territory (modern day Oklahoma). For that reason, people of virtually all world cultures traveled here at some point in time. Many even made Fort Smith home! What does this have to do with food? 

The history of merged cultures is reflected in the city's modern culinary landscape, making our local restaurants exciting to explore. 

Today, you'll find Fort Smith restaurants serving up everything from Southern-styled fried chicken and catfish, championship BBQ, collard greens, and Cajun specialties to international favorites from Mexico, Peru, El Salvador, Greece, Italy, China, Japan, and more, Fort Smith is the destination for any food lover.
