Love the look of this restaurant. Great artistic atmosphere. Gourmet hotdogs with funky names to match. We were disappointed the hotdogs were not bigger compared to their prices. We recommend using a different chili recipe, too.

If you want to ditch the common frankfurter, head to Instant Karma. Located downtown, they have a unique take on the old hotdog. How about it wrapped in bacon? How about it wrapped in bacon THEN deep fried (like a corn dog), how about it wrapped in bacon, deep fried AND dusted with powdered sugar? Thats what I'm talking about! I personally go for "The Kitchen Sink", and yes, it lives up to its name. Combine that with their sweet potato fries and you have a happy belly! They also have a vegan menu if you prefer your bun to hold tofu instead. Very eclectic atmosphere with art from local artists adorning their walls. A one of a kind Joplin original. Just be prepared to wait if Joplin is having a big to-do downtown, cause everyone wants to eat here!

This quaint restaurant in downtown was a pleasant surprise. Eclectic food, but based on the fundamental American hot dog. Wish I lived closer so I could eat there every week. Staff is friendly--willing to help newbies figure out the menu. Keep up the great work!

Instant Karma is well worth the quick drive into Joplin from the interstate. Hands down the best chili dog I've ever had - delicious combinations, a funky atmosphere, friendly staff, a historic building - top it off with a slice of pie baked by the owner's mom. Loved it.
