Great burgers & chilli, one of the best selections of beer on tap in Joplin

Recent visit for lunch, had one of the best burgers ever. If you like chilli, try the combo bowl and pair with one of the many beers on tap.

Fun and welcoming downtown location. Interesting collection of original local artwork on display throughout, huge and unique selection of beer, and a hilariously creative (and delicious) menu of dogs, burgers, and fries Or how about some deep fried lasagna?. Great place to relax and unwind in a kitschy but not contrived atmosphere. Oh yeah... I hear they have coffee there... More

This place is cool without being too hip. The ambiance is modern chic and the waiters are top notch. The food, although being hotdogs and hamburger, are gourmet, quality and worth paying for.

This is more that a coffee shop. They have a great variety of gourmet hot dogs and sandwiches. The "grilled cheeseburger" is a full grilled cheese sandwich for the bottom "bun" and another for the "top bun" with a cheeseburger with all the fixings between. Really a meal to die for.

I had a bacon and bleu grilled cheese burger. Instead of a bun, they used two grilled sandwiches. It was really tasty. I had a side of angry redneck fries which was, hand burger meat, jalapeños, and bleu cheese coleslaw on fries. The food was great but the service was lacking. My friend asked for a side of ranch three... More

Gourmet hot dogs are amazing!!!! We've tried so many and they all are to die for! Sweet potatoe fries and sauce are a top pick! Large portions, great food, excellent bar and service! Love the funky atmosphere! One of our favorite places!

This place is great! The chefs are creative with specials. This is so much more than a hot dog place. They have an extensive beer selection also! Recently got the big karm (made like a big mac, but with quality ingredients) and it was amazing. My wife got the BLT dog and it was also great! The only bad thing... More

One of my 19 year old son's favorite and I understand why. I must admit I am a little hooked on the Grilled Cheese patty melt where it's a cheeseburger between two grilled cheese sandwiches. It totally blows my diet but it is good. I tried to make it at home with very little luck. So, we had to go... More

In town for lunch and needed a place with vegetarian options for someone on our group. Very good cheeseburger, regular fries and sweet potatoe fries. I heard the vegan burger was also very good. Cheese sauce has plent of beer mixed in it. On a Saturday at lunch they had a lady playing acoustic guitar. Short wait for tables at... More
