Fishnet Restaurant. Awesome hushpuppies...

Too bad they only seem to be open for dinner and church day.

Having grown up in El Dorado, I'd choose Magnolia. BUT, and this is a big but, if you have kids and they go to El Dorado schools from K thru 12 and graduate - college is paid for any state school in Ark. It's prorated for the number of years in the district prior to graduation, IIRC.

If one must live in SoArk, free college for the children is not a bad deal, s'pose.

ok ive lived in south arkansas my entire life and i can say its not as good as the rest of the state....now im not going to talk it down or anything, but for the towns you have mentioned i will say that the few times ive been to arkadelphia i liked what i saw. Its a quite little college town and has alot of convienence. Sheridan is alot smaller but growing, i think its a wonderful town, low crime rate and close to some of the bigger cities such as little rock and hot springs. Stuttgart is another town i really like as well, the only bad thing about it is its a town kinda off to itself, relyieng on soley its farm land and duck hunting attractions. As far as the others im not as for sure so i won't say anythng bad about them. One tip i might add is stay away from pine bluff its a bad town that shows no growth and little job opportunities. Well hope ive been of some help

Sheridan and White Hall is where alot of people are moving. But really Sheridan is in Central Arkansas and White Hall is just outside of Pine Bluff. No Crime and Some of the Best Schools Around.

South Arkansas is really rural. The Largest City South of Little Rock is Pine Bluff. The next City is El Dorado and its only half the size of Pine Bluff. There are many small towns that are nice (Under 3,000 People) Not much to do in South Arkansas.

Best of Luck
