    Bald Knob Reviews

    Bald Knob is small. The town is fairly close though. Most people are very kind and usually are open to helping one another. The school is decent, although we could use new food to eat at lunch. The community is extremely good about banning together when one of our members need help. For example, recently, we had a boy who was extremely injured due to an accident on a four-wheeler. The community prayed together.
    Review Bald Knob
    Bald Knob is a small, sweet town with approximately 3000 residents. Despite our small size, we are home to the Bull Dog Restaurant and their famously delicious burgers. Bald Knob has been a blessing to my family. My husband is employed by the city and they are letting us keep a trailer on their land with free utilities.
    There are a few drug addicts, but those are everywhere.
