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.

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!

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
