One of the state's most-coveted restaurant recipes, the dressing-like concoction of eggplant, tomatoes, breadcrumbs, herbs and spices that make up the Eggplant Casserole at Franke's Cafeteria is never better than on the long bar of the oldest cafeteria in Arkansas. While Franke’s, which opened its first location in 1919, offers other classics such as congealed salads and smothered pork chops, it’s this singular comfort food that's become part of Little Rock's familiar plate, a popular side item that’s also a good choice for a "vegetable combo" or on its own as a hearty comfort food.
