Kream Kastle Drive Inn‘s legions of fans are getting some good news this week after Kevin Shalin of The Mighty Rib blog reported on Wednesday that the longstanding walk-up diner on U.S. Highway 70 will soon be making a comeback.

The greasy spoon and living fossil — as Arkansas Times contributor Guy Lancaster described it in 2019 — shut down sometime last summer. We weren’t able to reach the previous owners to confirm whether or not it would return.

Shalin reports that the owners of Benton’s Salem Dairy Bar will be taking over the coveted restaurant between Benton and Hot Springs near Ten Mile Creek. They are expecting to hold a soft(serve) opening at the end of June.
