They are supposed to be famous for there Chili, but I don't know why unless you like grease. I've always been amazed at how many people rave about this place. First you've got to like to be crammed into a small space, if your lucky to find one, this place is small.

I work about a block and a half from Casper's and read the reviews befor placing an order. Several of us at work ordered the chili frito pie and one ordered the chilli cheese fries. How disappointing!! First of all, when we called in our order the lady who took the order was extrememly rude. Then when I got there... More

The burgers and chili are fantastic. The staff is super friendly and remember you every time. The building is in an old kwanzaa hut from the early 1900's and is far from elegant but that is not what the place is about. It is quirky and just plain awesome

Casper's is known for its chili, but I make better chili myself. If you're in Springfield, you must go this unique "restaurant." It's a local favorite. And an unparalleled experience. In the past, I didn't go there much, because I'm not wild for their chili. But under the new owners, the menu is a bit more varied. Mind you, this... More

If you're lucky you might even catch an insult while dining. It's just a part of the experience here. I was told by a local that their Chile was the best in town. Well it ain't bad and neither are their burgers. The Frito-Pie looked pretty good as well. This is a tiny orange Quonset-Hut building, you might have to... More

if you're the type who wants to avoid the national chains and experience truly local flavors when you travel, then Casper's is a must when you visit Springfield. This place is in a Quonset hut. It's old and rusty. There's limited seating. Calling the decor 'dated' is wildly understating things. But that's the beauty of it (if that doesn't sound... More
