Best burgers in town. If you come to Mountain Home best give the Back 40 a try. The food is really good.

Burgers are good. Fried cauliflower is good. Service was super slow our last visit and we are not likely to go back. If you want a burger and have plenty of time give it a try.

Quintessential beer joint and I mean that in the finest tradition. Best hamburger in the land and the chili-cheese dog isn't far behind. Also an old full sized theater popcorn machine. The kind of popcorn you remember. You will like this place!
