Good and Interesting Place!

My bacon cheeseburger was very good and, as I like my food, hot off the grill. My wife had a chilli hotdog and her impressions were the same as mine. When we walked in we experienced a civil but cool reception from the staff. At first, I thought they were just cool to us? ?As several others came... read more

The gold standard for simple burgers and diner breakfast in this region since 1929. Retro look. Few seats. Meat is a blend and sort of like sausage. My kids are the fourth generation of my family to eat their burgers. Can be greasy, so newbies beware.

Ferrell's is one of those places that if you are ever in Hopkinsville that you HAVE to visit. It's just a small little hamburger joint, that has been in business since 1929, but it is AWESOME.

I have been eating here off and on for over 50 years. I grew up eating here. I moved away from Hopkinsville in my twenties, I always come back to eat here when I visit relatives. My daughters grew up eating here on our visits. It is the heart of local history. It is not fancy by any means. Great... More

Great cheeseburgers. Only chips and canned pop. Neat place tho. The older lady cooking was great. Not sure why everyone else was so unfriendly.

Been around since before WWII and still going strong! Small but good home style burgers along with chili, soda and pie. Great place to drop in for lunch, has limited seating and menu but good. Do drop in if you are in the area.

This place has been here forever. My Dad went here when he was a kid. Only a about seven seats at the counter in the front but there is seven more in the back. I really like the chili and burgers. Good place for breakfast also.

Growing up in Hopkinsville, it is a requirement to eat at Ferrell's when back in town. However, over the years, different cooks, health regulations, whatever, has changed the characteristic taste of the burger. The filler mixed with the hamburger meat has changed. I ate there Friday and my cheeseburger had no flavor at all to it, and I've been eating... More

The burger was good, very greasy, flatop fried. Better than most fast food chains. Definitely a niche dining experience. I can see how the locals growing up eating here could become addicted to the food. Don't expect anything fancy or great service. No fries, just bags of chips, and the only soda is in a can. Cash only!
