Say McIntosh on 7th, the Stifft Station soul food and barbecue restaurant run by the family of the great Little Rock political agitator, philanthropist and sweet potato pie maker, Robert “Say” McIntosh, was quietly shuttered over a year ago, but word comes that they’ll be reopening on Friday, October 8 under new management and a new name: Say McIntosh Restaurant and Sweet Potato Pie Factory. You can check out their Facebook page here.
Say’s grandson, Robert McIntosh III, will be the new owner, and said they decided to re-open the restaurant in the same location because it was already outfitted for their needs. McIntosh said the menu and handed down family recipes will be largely unchanged, with big burgers, barbecue, soul food, lemonade and wedges of his grandfather’s famous sweet potato pie. You can’t count yourself a true Little Rockian without trying a slice at least once in your life.
