...as told by one of their wives.
The not so sordid history of EJ's..
In 1990, they were just two UofA students with a taste for good cooking and a passion for a cold pint. Now, here they are 24 years later with EJ’s Eats & Drinks, the downtown restaurant & bar they opened in 2002. When EJ’s first opened it was just a 10 table ‘hole-in-the-wall’ on Kavanaugh in Hillcrest. Almost immediately after opening, EJ's gathered a cult following addicted to their generous portions & cozy atmosphere. As pretty much the only alternative to pizza & Chinese delivery, their catering & delivery business quickly grew. After four years in the original location, they were ready to expand into their new home in downtown Little Rock. The downtown location boasts a lively ambience and 25 tables – perfect for a quick business lunch, family dinner, private party or afternoon snacks and cocktails. Yes, we said cocktails…while EJ’s only served beer & wine when they were in Hillcrest, they have a full bar and mixed drinks…so come see for your self why EJ's is becoming such a popular restaurant!
