Took family here for weekday dinner last week during our Eureka Springs trip and we all loved it. Kids thought the burgers were great and my wife and I enjoyed our steaks. It's a quirky place with a roadhouse feel but still family friendly. Service...More

Went here two nights in a row. First night - food and atmosphere were great. The second night the food was awful, band was ok but the music was so loud our waitress couldn't even hear a thing we said.

Called in our order to go. Had the combo platter and each of the meats were good. It was some of the best pulled pork I have had, hands down! Worth the visit!
