New dining: Purple Cow

Purple Cow officially opened its first North Little Rock location in January next to McCain Mall at 4201 Warden Road. The local chain has been around Central Arkansas since 1989, serving gourmet burgers and old-fashioned soda fountain treats with a retro flair. The North Little Rock store also boasts a bar area and local beers on tap.
