A favorite of native son Bill Clinton, fifth-generation family establishment McClard's Barbecue in Hot Springs is best-known for smoky pork ribs and butts and a thin, tangy sauce. The Ribs and Fries plate consists of a half rack under a pile of potatoes — pull-apart, well smoked ribs that pair well with those handcut fries. The restaurant's famed tamales make a good addition; unlike their Arkansas Delta counterparts, these are filled with beef and pork and steamed in paper rather than corn husks.
