When Mark Abernathy opened Loca Luna 22 years ago, he started out with clever, creative lunch items. While they were certainly good, he realized they had limited appeal. Each day he would drive by the Dixie Cafe on Rebsamen Park Road and notice the full parking lot. He was reminded that Little Rock is a plate lunch town. So naturally, he decided he’d give the city the best plate lunch they can get. Since that decision 22 years ago, Loca Luna has been packing them in for what many consider to be the best plate lunch in town.

Classic meat and three. Homemade everything. Meatloaf, pot roast, fried chicken, chicken fried steaks, grilled fish, real mashed potatoes and cream gravy, fabulous mac & cheese, squash casserole, fresh greens, and tons more…all served with a fresh baked yeast role.


Plus, there’s a different plate lunch special everyday (with your choice of sides):

MONDAY      Turkey with Pecan Dressing


TUESDAY       Huge Chicken Flauta or Soft Chicken Taco

WEDNESDAY     Louisiana Tamales with Cheese Dip and Chili


THURSDAY        Chicken-Broccoli-Cheese Casserole

FRIDAY                Fried Catfish Filets with Jalapeno Hushpuppies

Of course there are plenty of other great items including sandwiches, salads, and Arkansas’s first wood fired brick oven pizzas.

If you want to experience the true taste of a classic Little Rock lunch, Loca Luna doesn’t disappoint.
