“Great meal for a reasonable price.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

We've eaten here several times over the years and have always been well-fed at a fair cost. Usually, we order a burger and crepes, both of which are delicious, and the dessert crepes too. The atmosphere is cute, it's in a basement, but the lighting can make it difficult to read the menus without using a cell phone to illuminate them. This place is absolutely PACKED on football weekends, and even when there is no Razorbacks game, it is generally busy. Since it's a bit on the smaller side, that makes the wait time even longer. We make a point to eat here whenever we're in Fayetteville, long wait or not!

“Solid As A ROCK”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

Most folks flock to Hugo's for their burgers, fresh cut fries and huge sandwich offerings. Whatever you try-it's all superb. I love fish and often try to eat light/healthy, so you'd think a Burger Mecca like Hugo's might leave one high and dry. Fear not fellow minded lovers of the harvest of cold waters. The grilled trout served with a house dressing salad is THE BEST on this planet with me. Especially when you substitute the fries with their incredibly aromatic herbed rice. Honestly a meal to die for and to be enjoyed every time you're not in a burger frame of mind. And that's the thing about Hugo's that makes any restaurant great...CONSISTENCY. Sure glad it also happens to be my wife's FAVE up on the hill. Long live Hugo's---a one of a kind, hole 'n the wall GEM!!!

“Food ok, building neat”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

Food was ok. Tried the blue moon burger and fries. Mint chocolate chip crepes were ok. They were so different it made them a novelty to have. The place is packed. Get there before 5:45 or you will wait. Place is small. Worth going to just to see the underground restaurant.

“Best burgers ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

Unique place with the best burgers ever. Go when it opens,or expect to wait for a seat. Service is good. Decor is basement dingy but that's part of the atmosphere.
