The burger was fresh, and hand made. The fires were good. and plenty. The shake is to die for. It was so yummy, so thick you almost have to have a spoon...If you have not been here...GO!

This is a burger and dog joint just as its name suggests. The kids really enjoyed watching it be made as we sat at the bar. The burgers and dogs were good and we would stop in again if we were in the area.

My son and I were in town visiting and saw a Bubbalu's and thought we'd love to have a hot dog. Wrong. First we walked in and the cook said menus on the counter and order by the register. Fine, but I was only a couple of feet from register but had to step over and order even though we... More

I work just across the street as a volunteer host and guide. When I am hungry for a good old fashion hamburger I head to BubbaLu's. Service is great, she cooks the burger to my liking. These are the kind that runs down your arm and taste like a hamburger should. Not your fast food burger, this one is thick... More

The hamburgers were very tasty and fresh! I loved the French fries. The service was prompt and friendly. A little confusing as you order at the counter and then find a place to sit. It is a very quaint looking place and very clean.

What started out as no big deal turned into the worst customer service experience of my life. Stopped by for lunch after a 3 hr drive, we 3 more hours ahead. Placed our order, when we received our food, an order of fries were missing. No big deal! They said we didn't pay for fries, we decided not to place... More

The food here is amazing and well priced! Definitely recommend the polish dog. They really know how to make some great chili!

We ate here on a trip to Hot Springs. It is right on the downtown strip so perfect place to eat when you are shopping. Burgers were awesome as were the coneys and French fries. Chili is great (especially on chili cheese fries). There was only a young girl working the register and carrying orders to tables and then the... More

Passed by this little place while downtown. It is a very cute diner style place. We even sat at the bar and watch them cook our food right in front of us. The burger was a good old fashioned burger with good crispy fries. I was disappointed that they had no BBQ sauce, but I survived.

Old fashioned hamburgers! They were very good! Ordering was a confusing. But the food was delivered to the table after a little while. It was very busy but the food was cooked fresh. We would eat here again.
