Neat little place, loved the food get the chili dog it was delicious. The young man who took our order was very rude. He seemed like he didn't like working there therefore have horrible service. 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!

This is a great step back in time to the old soda fountain experience but in a well preserved setting. The cook who took care of us was friendly and attentive. He even got my son hooked on malts (we went back the next day just to get a malt.) So, wander in and have some lunch or dinner. You... More

My wife and I stopped by for a light lunch while exploring downtown Hot Springs on foot. We had grilled cheese sandwiches and fries, I had a beer and my wife had a wine. Great atmosphere and good food!

We were looking for a place to eat and the BubbaLu's Boddacious Burgers & Classy Dogs was the first restaurant we came to. I am so glad we stopped. The burgers were homemade and delicious. The atmosphere was upbeat and fun!

Great burgers in a great location. It's our second time here. We enjoy the home cooked taste of the burgers. The cook is very nice. The waitress isn't always the most friendly. Fries are largest enough to share. Overall a busy place with great food.

I recently ate here and wasnt expecting much considering it is a burger joint. I was surprised. I had the super classy dog and it was HUGE. The taste was out of this world. I loved the relish they put on it. I also have never seen a cook work as hard as this guy did and maintain a friendly... More
