We stopped here for dinner during a stay over in Mountain Home. Picked it because of the reviews on TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed. Definitely a good old locals restaurant, the owner was there cooking the burgers, the staff was super friendly and very fun to talk to and the food was fantastic. The prices were Beyond reasonable if... More

It was great food, lovely atmosphere, and a good time was had by all. This was a birthday celebration, and it was a good choice for such.

This is a small place with big flavor! Huge hamburgers grilled right in front of you with all the fixins to boot! They serve beer as well.

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.

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
