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.

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.

T'was a very good burger! Husband ordered the double patty (picture) and almost couldn't finish eating it. The owner is a very sweet lady and was very informative of the happenings in the area.

My kids love the fry baskets at this place. The burgers are thick and juicy and always cooked as requested.

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
