“Serving Smiles since 1890”

The Oark General Store, listed in the Arkansas Register of Historic Places, was opened in 1890 in the isolated community of Oark, when times were a bit different.  The store has served the area ever since.  It has the distinct recognition of being the oldest continually-operating store in Arkansas.
The rural community of Oark is surrounded by the Ozark National Forest and has access to many natural settings:  the Mulberry River, a National Wild and Scenic River; the Ozark Highlands Trail, a spectacular 200-mile trail great for dayhikes and camping; as well as countless miles of off-road trails for outdoor enthusiasts, including the legendary Trans-America Trail.   In recent years, the Oark General Store has become an attractive destination for both on and off-road travelers, due to its location along windy and dramatic Ozark highways.  In the last 20 years, the store has transitioned from mainly groceries to a full-service restaurant, while keeping convenience items and gasoline.  Its a one-of-a-kind drive-to-eat experience, with home-style cooking seven days a week, from sun-up to sun-down.  Come see us soon!

Stopped by on a whim. Great little place, super friendly staff and the best damn pecan pie I've had in moons. If we are ever in the area again, we'll be back! Visiting from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

We take a trip here every year after a long day on the Mulberry River. Their burgers are awesome!

We stopped here while driving the Trans-America Trail. It was very busy, yet the food didn't take too long and the staff were very helpful and welcoming. There is an interesting display of pictures on the walls showing the building of the local roads and images depicting horse and carts negotiating the old rocky tracks.
They also sell Gas.

Popular stop for those riding the Trans-America Trail! This spot have been around since 1890. That's awesome. I'd definitely pay it a visit. Their breakfast is mouth-watering: homemade biscuits, fresh omelets, french toast and pancakes, bacon, etc. They also have burgers, though!
