- SOMEWHAT RARE: JP’s John Paul burger with sweet potato chips
This one, I should likely call “In defense of a rare burger.” Because I know some folks are going to disagree with me.
JP’s Restaurant and Gathering Place is the restaurant inside the Hotel Seville in Harrison. It’s named after 13-time U.S. Representative John Paul Hammerschmidt, who represented Northwest Arkansas in Congress up until his retirement in 1993. The menu at JP’s includes a lot of interesting items, such as Pork BBQ Quesadillas, Mesquite Grilled Salmon and a selection of hand-cut steaks. But it’s the burgers we were told about, so that’s why we went.
