Greasy Corner is an unincorporated community in St. Francis County, Arkansas, United States. Greasy Corner is located at the junction of Arkansas Highway 50 and Arkansas Highway 149 4.2 miles (6.8 km) north-northeast of Hughes.
The community was originally named Mack's Corner for B. M. McCullom, a local landowner. McCullom ran a store, restaurant, and automobile repair shop out of the same building. It acquired its current name when a farmer dining in the restaurant was given a plate with a grease stain by an auto mechanic. He commented that the community should be called "Greasy Corner" instead; the name has been used ever since.
