1 min read

Yellow Rocket Concepts, the Little Rock company behind Big Orange, Local Lime, ZaZa Fine Salad & Wood Oven Pizza Co., Heights Taco & Tamale and Lost Forty Brewing, announced Wednesday its newest project: Bentonville Taco & Tamale Co. 

Bentonville Taco & Tamale Co. is a northwest Arkansas iteration of the award-winning Heights Taco & Tamale Co., the company said. 

The 5,600-SF restaurant will be located on the Bentonville Square at 101 W. Central Ave. and seat approximately 145 guests in “a friendly, vibrant, and casual space” with a full bar, general dining and private dining spaces. It is set to open this fall.

In addition to fan favorites, classic menu items, and an innovative seasonal cocktail program, the new restaurant’s menu will feature expanded salad and starter dishes, “hyper-local” ingredients and beverage selections, house-made desserts, and rotating selections that are “neighborhood inspired.” 

The menu, created by Executive Chef Scott McGehee, features dishes and flavors inspired by the heritage of Arkansas-made and delta-influenced Mexican and Tex-Mex food. There will be house-made flour tortillas and hand-formed delta-style tamales along with locally grown produce.
