Continue to be a favorite when visiting the Jessieville area. Catfish is a good selection but could you add one more fillet to the basket?

Mom and Pop diner with good burgers, BBQ, and shakes! Building looks like an old Dairy Queen perhaps. Cash only but worth the stop.

The draw for us was the milk shakes and malts, and they did not disappoint us! The burgers, fries, and fried pickles were good, but a little too greasy for our taste. The portions were generous and filling. This is a cash only restaurant.

Unexpectedly stopped by on our way to our latest adventure. So glad we did! Staff was super friendly and everything tasted delicious. You have to save room for dessert! Their milkshakes are simply the best. Hope we drive through this area again soon!

We always stop at the Shack if we are passing through Jessieville, AR. Always fast, friendly service. Love their burgers, fries, broccoli cheese bites and shakes! Remember to bring cash, they do not take credit/debit cards!

It’s a small little place with great food and great service. We’ve been there a few times when we are in the area. I’ve only ordered the burgers, so I can’t comment on the other food. But their burgers are delicious. Highly recommended.

I have eaten here many times, always good food. The burgers and fries are great but the best thing is the ice cream

One of our favorite places to eat when staying in Hot Springs Village. The fried catfish is perfect with a fresh side salad and malt or shake for dessert. Yum!

The crunchy chicken fried chicken, the wonderful fried green beans, okra, and sweet potato fries were all tasty delicious. The hot fudge shakes were really yummy also. I had the small chef salad and it was big.
