Good food

But the building was a little on the dark side. Not meaning evil, but just a bit dim. Not intelligence, OK, it needed to be illuminated better! :P I really couldn't make out some of the handwritten things on the menu, though.

I took my family here for something different, as the chain-restaurants in Mountain Home have begun to become bland. I'd heard several people give good reviews of the place so we went here for a change. To summarize, the restaurant was packed solid, and also very very dimly lit, so we had to eat outside in the "Karaoke" room. This... More

Wonderful food! Great environment and service. I'll be back. There is a beer garden in the back with a fun atmosphere.

The burger was amazing! And we had a fun time in the "back porch" area where there was a karaoke DJ. We were in town to buy a boat and this was recommended at the marina.....very well worth it!

Good rustic spot for a Big old Burger, fries and a cold beer. Locale hangout for a cheap meal. What else can I say Except Good Cheap Burgers.

I took my mom here for a birthday celebration. (Don't laugh - her favorite thing is a good hotdog.) She had the foot long chili dog, and I had a burger with beer. The food was really good, but I think what topped the visit off was the very friendly wait staff. The place is rustic, but we're from Alaska,... More

Great hamburger, "barnbuster". Good fries and onion ringer. "Miss Piggy", is a really good ham sandwich. The"Woody", now don't laugh, I know you did", is good 1/3 pound beef patty covers with caso cheese lettuce and chilli. Yes, it's as good as it sounds. Go as you are. Good cold beer! Pool room if your interested. Outdoor patio in season.

If you love a good hamburger do yourself a favor and check out the Back Forty. My personal favorite is the Barnbuster. I always have mine with Swiss Cheese but you have other options. Add a side of their Chili Cheese Fries and it's worth the shame you're going to feel later for having indulged.
