We happened onto Bubbalu's last year and made a point to come back this year for another great burger and fries! Everything is made fresh right in front of you and the atmosphere is very old school diner! I especially admire the hard- working proprietor who is always here making the food, and the great service, herself. Five stars!!!

Great diner serving excellent food (polish & regular large hot dogs on oversized toasted buns and 1/3lb hand formed burgers, all with the whole gamut of toppings), fries & onion rings, and blue bell ice creams/shakes/malts. The owner was very friendly while taking our order and cooking our food. Place is kid friendly - reduced price specials on burger and... More

My family and I visited this restaurant this past October and I wasn't really that impressed. I felt the staff could have been more friendly and I thought the food could have used some flavor. I had the cheeseburger and it was okay. The patty itself didn't have any flavor. I have had better burgers, but it's quick and really... More

My wife and I weren't terribly hungry but I "needed" something to eat. We both settled on the home made white chili. Very, very good homemade dish. Had fun with the waitress and enjoyed our meal. Prices were just a tad more expensive than other places we ate while in Hot Springs... but definitely worth the price. We would go... More

Bubbalu's was recommended by a National Park employee when we visited Hot Springs. He said they served the best burgers in Hot Springs, and we heartily agree because they were delicious! The fries were excellent also. It's a convenient downtown location and a great place to eat.

The couple that serves up bodacious burgers are really in the know when it comes to good food. Their service is beyond compare. Malts and shakes are available along with alcohol for 21 and overs. The fries are served as they are at the Astor in California. Inverted in a paper chute to drain away any oil as you nibble... More

I am really surprised in a good way that this restaurant is still here due to the pricing of the burger but hey, it is worth it! Best burger, except for the Ohio Club in town...especially for people with children. Fries are great, hot dogs good but burgers...wow!

In and out quickly. Picky eater in our party loved her food. Will eat here again. A little pricey, but worth it.
