JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Beef and beer will be on the menu when Doe's Eat Place opens in Jonesboro.

Gary “Bud” Roberts, director of the Arkansas Department of Finance Administration's Alcoholic Beverage Control, approved the restaurant's private club application.

According to the DFA's website, the application received just one letter of opposition from Bobby Hester of the Arkansas Family Coalition.

In his Dec. 14 decision, Roberts stated the permit was "conditional upon completion of all construction, installation of all kitchen facilities, lighted fire exit signs, a landline telephone, and receipt of health department approval, with a re-inspection of ABC Enforcement."

The restaurant, located at 411 W. Washington, is expected to open the week of Jan. 23, 2017.

In other ABC business, Roberts approved the following permits: 

  • Delta Crawfish Market & Cajun Cafe, 3228 Caraway, Jonesboro: Private Club, conditional upon installation of lighted fire exit signs, a copy of health department approval, with re-inspection by ABC Enforcement. No objections received.
  • Rustic Rail Eatery, 211 S. Pruett, Paragould: Private Club and Retail Beer on Premises. No objections.
  • Bob-O's Dance-Gaming, Inc., 204 East St., Harrisburg: Private Club and Restaurant Beer & Wine. One objection from Mayor Randy Mills; administrative hearing held on Nov. 30. Director's decision-granted.

Also, during the week ending Dec. 16, Glin E. Miller submitted a new Private Club-Class A application for N'Awlins Arkansas, 303 S. Main St., Suite A, in Jonesboro.
