Little Rock restaurants, caterers and food trucks in 2013 sold more than $476 million in prepared food and nonalcoholic beverages, according to the most recent data available from the Little Rock Convention & Visitors Bureau.

Find out which restaurants sold the most, browse through a detailed sales map and test how well you know the local restaurant scene in this interactive package on last year's city restaurant sales.

The numbers are available because prepared food establishments must pay a 2 percent advertising and promotion tax on sales of prepared food and nonalcoholic beverages.

Ionette Neal, senior director of tax revenue, said the 2013 total reported restaurant sales of $476,222,643 could tick higher as some late tax payments are received. But, she said, it's unlikely to be a significant difference from the latest numbers, which reflect collections through Feb. 10, 2014.

The total was nearly a 2.5 percent increase from 2012, when $464,613,386 in restaurant sales were reported.

In 2011, the total was $440,884,526, and in 2010 it was $423,389,949.

Boy it looks like all those folks who quit eating at Chik Fil A really hurt their business! Only about $40,000 a day in the metro LR area; how will they survive?
