EPODUNK USER REVIEWS & BLOGS

Magnolia, AR

Pros: nice university, some shops, nice new developments for housing, several schools

Cons: if you were not born in magnolia then you are treated like a second class citizen, the restaurants here are sub standard, the county will not allow liquor licenses so you may not choose for yourself if you would like a glass of wine with supper, but you are welcome to drive 20 minutes to a liquor store in Louisiana to buy alcohol (makes no sense), people here seem generally uptight and very judgmental, but don't worry you will see them all at the drive through liquor store in Louisiana, however they will not recognize you!

This is a good place to NOT sure
