Sa­line County will soon have a new eatery.

Ac­cord­ing to doc­u­ments re­ceived from the Arkansas De­part­ment of Health, Newk’s Eatery will open in the Hur­ri­cane Creek Vil­lage shopping cen­ter in Ben­ton.

At this time, no pro­jected dates for con­struc­tion or fu­ture open­ing have been set.

How­ever, the lo­ca­tion, ac­cord­ing to maps pro­vided through the Free­dom of In­for­ma­tion Act, will be be­hind Tacos 4 Life.

Also in­cluded in the re­quest are ren­der­ings for the fa­cil­ity.

Cur­rently, there are nine lo­ca­tions across the Nat­u­ral State, in­clud­ing two in Lit­tle Rock and one in Hot Springs.

“We are in the restau­rant busi­ness be­cause we love food. We love ex­pe­ri­enc­ing food. We love preparing food. We love serv­ing food.

And we live to per­fect it,” ac­cord­ing to the busi­ness’ web­site.

Newk’s was founded in

2004 by Don New­comb, Debra Bryson and Chris New­comb, the team that founded Mcalis­ter’s Deli.

Ac­cord­ing to the web­site, as Chris New­comb tested and per­fected menu items for their new con­cept, it be­came ap­par­ent this ven­ture would closely re­flect the team’s per­sonal pas­sion in the kitchen. Many of the sta­ple menu items were born from trea­sured New­comb fam­ily recipes. Thus Newk’s was born — an ab­bre­vi­ated homage to the New­comb cook­book.

“With that name comes a com­mit­ment to con­tin­u­ally cre­ate ex­traor­di­nary meals and ex­pe­ri­ences for our guests. We live for the tan­ta­liz­ing smells, sights, tastes and tex­tures of meals that are made to per­fec­tions. We are ob­sessed with dis­cov­er­ing new recipes and reimag­in­ing old fa­vorites — es­pe­cially our New­comb Fam­ily Recipes. We in­sist on sourc­ing the finest in­gre­di­ents. We are un­com­pro­mis­ing about qual­ity from the kitchen to ta­ble and our ded­i­ca­tion to per­sonal ser­vice. That’s a pas­sion shared by every­one you will meet at Newk’s,” the web­site states.
