“AWESOME breakfast!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

Hubby and I stayed at The Lodge which is located right next door to the Route 62 Diner. We walked next door for a late breakfast arriving at around 10:00. Virgil, our waiter, greeted us at the door, and we seated ourselves in a booth. Virgil brought the menu and took our drink orders. He came back quickly with our drinks, and we placed our orders. Hubby got the chicken fried steak breakfast with 2 over easy eggs, hash browns, and biscuit and gravy. I ordered the Supreme Omelette which contained bacon, sausage, mushrooms, peppers, onions, tomatoes, and cheese. It was accompanied by hash browns and biscuit and gravy. Virgil put our order in and then returned to bus tables of those diners who had left. He was very personable and carried on quite pleasant conversation.

Hubby said that his chicken fried steak was cooked perfectly. It was well-seasoned and delicious. His eggs were cooked perfectly. The hash browns were of the shredded variety and were cooked and seasoned well. Biscuit and sausage gravy was very good.

My omelette was INCREDIBLE! It had whole strips of bacon in addition to pieces of bacon and huge hunks of flavorful sausage. The veggies were sautéed and added wonderful flavor to the 3 egg omelette. It was a HUGE portion and kept me full for the whole day of sightseeing and shopping.

When you visit Eureka Springs, you owe it to yourself, your taste buds, and your pocketbook to visit with Virgil at Route 62 Diner.

Nice lil place to stop & grab some quick food. I had fried pickles which was an appetizer & they were great. My husband had the mushroom Swiss burger & he loved it. Staff was very friendly.

“Great value! Cute old diner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013 via mobile

This restraunt is very cute looking inside and out. We ate out on the terrace overlooking the mountains. Beautiful view. I had the hickory burger, the burgers there are half pound! We were checked on several times to check how we were doing. Very enjoyable considering I'm a smoker and was able to smoke since we were outside. I have been told that the breakfast is really great here also!

“Different”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013 via mobile

I went with a small group of women (7).Very friendly guy waited on us, very chatty. Took forever.... To get our food and when it did come out only four of us got there dinner the other three waited another at least 10 minutes for their's. There was two people who came in after us and they got there food in a timely manner before us. Never knew what the problem was. One of the hamburgers served the last one was half the size of the others!? Any way cute place bad service, what else can I say.
