Very nice selection of Beers. Unique hot dog dinners. Plenty of room for a larger party. Located on a main street in Joplin. Club 609 is next door for an after dinner drink. Very nicely decorated.

Just ate there the other day. They were pretty busy but I didn't feel like we were ever forgotten. One small error on the kitchens part and it was fixed instantly. There quality of food is great and I like a place with a full bar.

We stopped here on a two day road trip. My husband had the donut burger and I had the chihuahua dog. The kids had corn dogs and grilled cheese. So good and original. You MUST go!

Instant Karma will surprise you with its beer selection and eclectic variety of dishes. Who ever heard of a beer and cheese tray? AMAZING! Gourmet hot dogs, excellent vegan chili and much more.

I love instant karma for a number of reasons. Their food is fantastic! Always leaves us feeling fat & happy. The service is always top notch even when they are slammed. Their beer choices are always changing & my husband loves all the options. Im not a huge beer fan, but my drinks are always made great as well. The... More

If you want great food and a great atmosphere stop by. I have always enjoyed every visit. The food is great. The service is good. I usually get the Kitchen Sink Dog when I am here. This is what Joplin needs more of!

If you are looking for a place to get a common dish with a tasty twist, this is the place. They can turn an ordinary hotdog into just about any creation and their Sweet Potato Fries are simply the best.

I've eaten here twice since moving to the southwest Missouri area. I can't get enough! The last time we ate there, I had the Hot Ozarkian which is two grilled cheese sandwiches with a burger between them. It had avocado, jalapeno and a chipotle mayo on it, plus cheese. I ate half of it because I knew it was super... More

I've been twice since we moved to Joplin a month ago. Once for lunch and again for dinner during the city's very busy "Third Thursday" event. Enjoyed the food and atmosphere each time. Fries will cost you extra, but not bad. The diverse menu of any sort of Angus hot dog or crazy hamburger you can think of makes this... More

I've eaten here dozens of times. Everything from gourmet hot dogs to fine meals. I like quirky and this places oozes quirky. From the local art on the walls to the sometimes live music and always cool music this place is fun to experience. There can be really long lines at times, so avoid noon on the nose. Come a... More
