We are saddened this morning to read in the paper that Coy's Steakhouse burned to the ground Friday morning.
Coy's Steakhouse was an icon in Hot Spring's Arkansas. It had been in business since 1945. This restaurant has won numerous awards for serving the best steaks in Arkansas and had received many wonderful reviews. It was a very interesting old building filled with antiques and catered to the Oaklawn racing crowds. We always ate there on our trips to the HOG bike rally in the fall and usually a few other visits throughout the year. My sister and I took our sons this past July and enjoyed a wonderful steak Oscar! They were famous for a special salad dressing they served. When you were seated, the waitress would bring out a warmed sleeve of saltine crackers in a metal container with a cruet of the homemade dressing. YUM!
Our trips to the area will never be the same. Hopefully they will rebuild and come back stronger than ever.
