Delicious ribs and barbecue sauce from Fred's Hickory Inn

Thank You, Fred’s Hickory Inn!

Our current partner of the month is Fred’s Hickory Inn. Established in 1970 by Fred and Lou Gaye, this is a Bentonville treasure that needs little introduction. An original Home for Dinner partner, their steaks and ribs are a favorite with our veterans, and we are so thankful for their support of our mission and the NWA veteran community. A special “thank you” goes out to the Lawson and Mahan families for their continuing generosity, to executive manager Spencer Myer, and to the entire team at Fred’s!

Beth is a local dance instructor who founded Home For Dinner after she was inspired by her father's military service during WWII. What began as regular volunteering at the VA became more as she sought a simple way to show gratitude to the men and women of the US Armed Forces who have served and continue to serve today.
