if you like real burgers and good chili even when its 99 degrees outside this is your place very small and not the neatest place but makes up for it in ambience

One of our favorites every time we visit Springfield. Great service; actually, beyond great service. I wish everyone was as happy and as energetic as our last server there. Chili and ham sandwich are awesome. What a place with a ton of history! Don't change a thing!

I don't care how long you've lived in Springfield, don't call yourself a Springfieldian if you've never experienced the joy of this chili. As a general rule, I don't really even like chili, yet I love ordering a double whammy (an open faced double cheeseburger smothered in chili) at the bizarre little hut known as Casper's.

Frito pie in Casper's Quonset hut is one of the best down-home meals anywhere. Casper's has been around for over half a century, though it started in a different Quonset hut over on Glenstone. "Eclectic" seems far too mild a description for Casper's interior, and though the hand-painted menus on the walls offer a variety of options, for me, there's... More

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.
