Ferrell's Snappy Service was opened in the summer of 1936 by David Ferrell and his wife Cecil, and is open around the clock Monday through Saturday, but closed on Sunday. The restaurant has had several generations of loyal customers. Many started eating Ferrell’s burgers when they were old enough to chew solid food. Fans who move away often make Ferrell’s... More

Farrell's has been around Hopkinsville longer than most residents! Some folks come back to town just to get one of their burgers! They are not "to die for", they're just part of the town's history! People do carry out and take them to family and friends many, many miles away!

Delicious little burgers grilled right in front of you. I like pickles, onions, and mustard on mine. They are perfection! Bugger than a Krystal or White Castle, but small enough to eat a couple if you are hungry. I love their chili. A perfect meal here is a burger with a side of chili. Yum. This place is really small.... More

Wonderful hamburgers. They are thin but so delicious and you'll want to eat several and freeze them for later. I have been eating Ferrell's hamburgers my whole life and they are as good as they were 50 years ago. Love them!

We stopped in on a whim. Just driving through and found it on Trip Advisor. So glad we did. Food was great! We had burgers and chili. Small place, only 6 stools and no tables.

This a "hole in the wall" kinda place. They really need to take off the "snappy service" part...service is slow! But considering the woman is in her 80's and still Flippin burgers, we'll I'll wait by golly. Only disappointment is no French fries, no mayo. burgers come pickle onion,catsup & mustard....period...they are small, so I ordered a double which is... More

This is a unique and old fashioned burger joint that has folks returning time and time again. Past locals that move away always come back when in the area. Great chili too!!

Have eaten here a couple times just for nostalgia's sake. Just expect to wait. There is seating for about 10 people. Food is good. Most people call in their orders and pick them up.
