IMBODEN, AR (KAIT) - If you have driven through Imboden recently, you might have noticed a new restaurant.

Its owner is 21-year-old Imboden native Austin Hurt, who recently graduated from culinary school and moved home to open his new restaurant, Austin’s Cafe.

Hurt grew up in Imboden but moved away to go to school.

He’s hoping his restaurant will give the people in his hometown somewhere new and fun to enjoy.

He says he has been working toward becoming a chef since he was just a kid.

“Since I was very little I always wanted to be a chef and own my own place, that’s just the dream and I’m getting to fulfill it right at this time,” Hurt said.

His cafe serves homestyle foods including burgers, soups, and sandwiches, in addition to new specials every day.

Austin’s Cafe is open seven days a week and he even delivers inside the Imboden city limits.

To keep up with the specials, you can join the Austin’s Cafe Facebook group.
