“New favorite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

I'm from Kansas City and frequently visit Memphis for ribs. I have to say, Mr Whisker's ribs were the best I've ever had - hands down. Everything was wonderful! Splurge and get the hush puppy basket - you won't regret it. Very nice people and excellent service!

“A real surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

You won't be too impressed when you drive up to the location, but please do yourself a favor and go inside. You'll find catfish, ribs, burgers, po boys, etc. We had catfish, po boys, and ribs - all of which were superb. Prices are very reasonable, and the owner was friendly as well - he went around to all the tables to chat and make sure everything came out okay. We come to HS every year, and we've had meals here that cost 3 or 4 times more, but we enjoyed this meal just as much.

“This place is AWESOME!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

Great food at fast food prices. My crawfish po boy basket was $6.95. Catfish was great, chicken tenders were great, burgers were great. Can't say enough good things about this place. Staff was friendliest we've encountered all week. Definitely go here, it's not on the main drag but you will be sorry if you skip it.

“Really good food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

Mr. Whiskers was one of our first stops when we arrived in Hot Springs. I also search Trip Advisor reviews before we make selections on food and attractions in new places. Mr. Whiskers had wonderful reviews so we thought we would check it out.
When you walk in you notice it is a quaint little place, nothing real fancy. There are a lot of fishing decorations and such. You walk up to the counter and look over the menu they have hanging above and order your food at the counter.
They bring it out to your table when it is ready. The staff was very friendly and courteous. My husband ordered the BBQ Rib dinner and I ordered the Catfish Dinner. We did not have to wait very long at all for our food. Presentation was nice and it didn't look like they just threw it on the plate which is always pleasant.
My husband really enjoyed the ribs and said they had some of the best beans he has eaten in a long time. My catfish dinner was very good. I think the hushpuppies were actually my favorite. They were very crisp and had a thin crunchy coating.I will say it wasn't the BEST catfish and ribs we have had. However,we were pleased with our meals and would definitely go there again.
