Let me begin by saying that Dew Drop Inn (now Dew Drop Inn Café) has been an extremely popular drive inn in Hot Springs for many, many years. Their fries and burgers have made this place extremely popular with locals and tourists alike. Recently reopened under new owner ship, expectations for these owners to carry on the diner traditions as... More

Ate dinner here on 8/26, walking from our cabin next door. Delicious cheeseburgers and fries and excellent root beer float. Friendly staff, who even topped off my root beer float when it became mostly float and needed just a bit more root beer. My son had a kids' hot dog and smiley fries.

After riding most of the day on the Mickelson Trail, all I could think about was getting a burger, fries and a root beer float at this place! They did not disappoint!

My wife loved this little place. The burgers are excellent. Wonderful for snacks, lite meals and desserts. The French fries were hand cut fresh and cooked perfectly. Great experience all around. Some indoor seating with plenty outside as well. The shakes were also well done. Pineapple, butterscotch and hot fudge were the flavors we tried. All were very good.

Thank William S
