Ozark Country Restaurant, 201 Keightly Drive, Little Rock, formerly the Little Rock branch of the Ozark Mountain Smokehouse, is apparently up for sale, with an RPM sign big enough to be visible from the nearby intersection of Cantrell Road and Mississippi Street -- particularly in the wake of the recent tear-down of a Cantrell Road strip center that contained a Shipley's Donuts to make way for a pending Slim Chickens. Except that RPM's Reed Gibbons, whose name was on the for-sale sign, told us that somebody stole the sign over the weekend. Neither he nor owner Dan Haase would he divulge any details, though Haase, while not exactly confirming that the place is on the market, did concede that "If somebody comes along" and wants to buy it, "it's a great piece of property." Meanwhile, he's continuing to serve breakfast and lunch, and keep the deck open in fair weather, seven days a weeks -- 6:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Monday-Friday, 6:30 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday-Sunday. The phone number is (501) 663-7319.
