Usually I’m the one that researches Trip Advisor for places to eat and things to do, but I was busy taking pics inside The Fordyce House, so I asked my husband to. BubbaLu’s was right across the street, and the reviews were good, he chose...More

My wife and I just wanted a hot dog for a light lunch. She got the “classy” one with kraut, etc. and I got the chili cheese dog. Both were large Nathan dogs in a good large bun that held all the toppings, unlike most...More

The burger was very good, the fries were piping hot. The service was exceptional. The employees were so friendly and entertaining. We laughed the whole time. Shiela and the hot dog guy were awesome. Thanks for the hospitality!

Small eatery in the heart of Hot Springs. Serve was friendly and fast. Our burgers were juicy and tasty. We ordered a side of onion rings and again they were outstanding. Prices are very reasonable. Really nice experience.

We can't speak to the dining experience since my co-workers and I just got carry-out. Everyone was very pleased with their meals, the Classy Hot Dog and Grilled Chicken sandwich were a big hit!
