Their Barn Buster is one of the best burgers I have had. The steak fries with a side of Rotel cheese dip is my favorite side. My husband loves the fried mushrooms and the steak sandwich. If you are looking for a good burger with or without a beer this is your place. I have not had anything bad here,... More

We had a group of 20, we had one waitress and she got everything perfect. Food is more or less bar food, but quality. Old facility that adds character. Popcorn is free. Friendly staff takes care of your needs. This is more not ADA compliant than is.

They are known for having the best burgers in this area and they do. Now that the no smoking is in effect, you can breath inside, too.

My Wife and I stopped in the other day for a quick bite for lunch; the fare was typical for a bar/restaurant combination, but the waitress was worth the visit. I commented to my Wife that my French fries were quite hot and remained hot following a good dunking in ketchup. The Wife informed me these must be 'freshly' cut... More

This place may not look like much from the outside but the number of cars and motorcycles in the parking lot should tell you to stop. The kind of place everyone from a family with children to bikers can feel comfortable. Excellent burgers with good choice of toppings. Live music some nights with outdoor seating when weather permits.

Had a wonderful hamburger for lunch with a large portion of fries which I shared with my dining partner. Service was outstanding. I have never seen a woman work harder in a restaurant and kept everyone!s beverages filled. Restaurant was packed.

If we want a good burger and a cold beer while in Mountain Home, this is where we go, hands down. Don't let the looks fool you, it's family friendly.

They have the best burgers around, cooked to your prefrence. Also the best sweet potato fries. They also have live music outside in the beer garden. Maybe not the best place for children, due to the bar, but a great place to relax and enjoy a great burger!

Thank odamom
