Good "hipster" food with ok service. When we went I think they were probably just short staffed because the waiter didn't come by much and it took a little while to get out food. But the food was pretty good, a little greasier than I...More

Seared rare Ahi tuna atop a crispy fresh mixed greens salad with wasabi mayo.....wow, this is not your average Interstate food stop!!! Makes stopping along the way a truly great experience. Enjoy the ride!

My husband and I are here the first time last summer and it was mediocre. We decided to give it another try this month and same thing. It’s not bad but it is nothing special.

On our way through Joplin, I️ looked to TA to find a lunch spot. This was a great place. Busy but the employees worked hard and fast. Food was awesome. We both had burgers. I️ had Mac and cheese hubby had fries. Great sauces.

Great food and atmosphere. Small, but the food is DEFINITELY worth it. Different spin on a "drive-in" - not your typical thought of one. Small and cozy. Food is worth the price and you get lots of it. Full bar available as well.

Eagle has some of the best burgers in Joplin, and the menu is so interesting! You can switch out your beef for elk, bison, or lamb, or you could try the prime rib chili or poutine fries. Everything is amazing! Whatever you get, you HAVE...More
