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!

Great burgers - sandwiches & fries! Great sweet potato fries! Has a bar and cold beer - pool table seating inside & out. loud - bar type atmosphere. Bring cash for tips as they won't add it to your cc/debit card.

There aren't too many restaurants inMountain home Arkansas where you can even order a beer with a good burger. The meat is fresh and no frozen patties like fast food joints. It's more of a bar atmosphere but they don't serve hard liquor. Everything is pretty good but the Barn Buster Burger with cheese is the go to dish here.... More

I've been here a couple times. Both times I ordered a burger. Burger was good, don't think it was any special kind of meat. Looked to be frozen thick patties on the grill. My husband ordered the chili cheese dog. He enjoyed his food too. Be sure you order 1/2 order of fries not a full order, unless you plan... More

Been going here for years!! Great food, great prices, but the place needs a remodel. If you have a group of friends or family they also have a covered outdoor area behind the resteraunt.
