Ice cream and root beer floats!

We stopped in for a cool treat while we enjoyed the sights. They usually serve Blue Bell, but have come up with a decent substitute in the meantime. Generous portions on the ice cream cones. Root beer floats were given mugs with ice cream, and you go pour your own from the soda fountain. Nice... read more

Had burgers and hot dogs, both were excellent! Fries were great too, wish we would have gotten onion rings too.

this was a welcome relief from the heat of the day. good food. the only thing that was a little offputting was the single place to order. the line was too long. but i guess this is because the food is really good

I had a husband and 3 teenage boys with me & everyone was full and happy when we left! The 3 boys all had burgers and 1 had the polish dog. I had the grilled cheese with bacon. The onion rings were really good! The cook and waiter were very friendly.

We try to eat here when we travel through Hot Springs. Juicy, handmade burgers cooked to order. Onion rings are tasty. Have not had fries or hotdogs. We like eating at the bar.

Atmosphere, food, service, value were FANTASTIC!!!! Highly recommend stopping in here.

The older lady working the grill seemed like she had to do everything running all over the place. All while the younger guy just stood... More

Stopped in here after visiting the visitor center in Hot Springs. Tasty taco soup, grilled cheese, classic hot dog. Extra large hot dog on a huge bun. Wonderful conversation with owner and cook. The food was delicious and the place was ultra clean. Going back tomorrow.

We went during the peak of tourist season, or maybe they were short staffed? I don't know, but the burgers were worth the wait! She's only open during certain hours, and get there early to avoid the wait!
