Fresh beef patties!

Our first stop upon arrival to Hot Springs, we wanted burgers and we got them! Fresh hand made, patty(which we watched them hand pat) and the veggies were fresh. My kids got the chillindogs and loved them. I wasn't too crazy about the fries, but the onion rings were delish!

This place was recommend to us when we first got to Hot Springs. We were told that it was a great place to take kids. The waitress was really sweet, but the cook was the rudest person I've ever had contact with in a restaurant. She was mad when my 3 year old asked for a toothpick in her burger... More

We decided to eat here after visiting the Fordyce. Everyone ordered the burgers and they were fantastic. Reminded me of burgers you used to get at the local diner. They were made with real angus and cooked to perfection. We also had the onion rings and they did not disappoint either. The couple working the counter and grill were great.... More

We visited here and we all enjoyed it! The food was wonderful! My husband, son and I all had hamburgers and my youngest had the hot dog and needless to say he loved it! I would definitely recommend eating here to anyone!

From the trip advisor reviews, this stop was on my list of eateries while visiting Hot Springs. My hamburger was overcooked; so dry it was difficult to choke down. The thick-cut onion rings were 70% batter which had no flavor and greasy. My husbands chili dog (per him) was okay; the roll was nicely toasted and buttery tasting. My shake... More

We found this place while spending some time on bath house row. Excellent food. Burgers, fries and onion rings were all delicious. My son had a grilled cheese that looked tasty too. You order at the counter and then find a seat and they bring your food. Highly recommend and would eat here again.

The greatest burger I had in a long time and washed it down with a fantastic chocolate malt. Will come back again!!

My husband and I were visiting Hot Springs and specifically looked for this diner after having eaten here a few years ago with our daughter on vacation. The owner was working the counter and was very patient about explaining things on the menu since they didn't have exactly what I wanted. I was hoping to order a BLT but she... More

We visited BubbaLu's in Hot Springs on Friday 7/31/15 after spending the morning and afternoon at Magic Springs and enjoyed everything about this place. Our 4 pre-teen and teenager nieces and nephew had never had the "diner and counter" experience so we sat at the counter and they ordered. All the food including our burgers, polish dogs, hot dogs, chilli... More

My family was on vacation in hot springs. While we are walking downtown this is the only moderately priced restaurant. We go in and are greeted by the nice old lady that is cooking and waiting tables. She tells us where the menus are and to order when we're ready the cash register guy was very helpful in helping us... More
