The person who took the order was so busy and I get that, but rudeness is never acceptable. A lady behind me was yelled at by the cook because she wanted her burger cooked and certain way. The cook told her if she wanted to be picky then go some place else. I kept waiting and waiting for my food... More

Had burgers and fries, very good and tasty. Reasonably priced burgers and homemade buns, around $5.00. Good prices. Ordered burgers at counter.

We stopped in for lunch while walking around Hot Springs. You have to look at the menu at one end of the counter, then walk to the middle of the counter to order and pay. The place was busy and we were lucky to find a seat at the far end of the counter. If you are looking for a... More

We were walking down Central in the Historical District in Hot Springs when we stumbled upon this place. It was lunch time so we decided to give it a try. BubbaLu's Bodacious Burgers are excellent. Old fashioned burgers cooked on the grill while you watch. We felt like we were having a burger and fries with mom and dad. Mom... More

Really good for a quick stop in for handmade black angus burger on a grilled bun. Okay chicken salad, with really good onion rings and homemade oatmeal cookies.

Food is good, hot dogs and hamburgers. Hamburgers are fresh cooked. The only issue is the service is slow even when their not crowded. So if your in a hurry might want to go somewhere else.

We were in Hot Springs for a girl's trip and stopped in on a Saturday for lunch. There were only 3 people working, so the wait was ridiculous. We order our food, which was way more than it was worth, and sat at the bar that faces the grill. Here, we watch an older woman, who seems to be the... More

The burgers at BubbaLu's are amazing! Cooked just right on a toasted bun...what could be better. If they are busy, your wait will be longer than a fast food joint, but so worth it.

If you’re a hot dog fan, this is the place to stop in Hot Springs. It’s not your New York City dog but something just as special if not better. Starting with a fresh roll, a savory hot dog, plied with sauerkraut, Dijon mustard and a sweet pepper relish that will make you sigh with satisfaction.

Thank Gordon E
