Our family of 7 was promptly seated during dinner hours. Resturant is decorated with a variety of cheerful purple cows and they had a great menu of mostly burgers and sandwiches. Service was prompt and friendly and food was great! Will go back for sure!More

I know that it is just food coloring but the purple colored vanilla ice cream at the Purple Cow is fantastic. The patty-melt was great also, but the main attraction of this "back to the fifty's diner" is the desserts in my opinion. My wife,...More

Found this restaurant on trip advisor. We were impressed first by how big the booth was. Food was very good. Shakes... amazing! Hand made shakes and malts and they bring out the extra in the metal mixing cup for you. Little pricey. We got app,...More

The Purple Cow is merely ok. The restaurant is cute and staff are very nice. Menu is fine with some more healthy options available if you like. The food itself was average. My burger was over cooked and dry. The dessert menu looked great and...More

We stopped here for lunch while visiting Hot Springs NP. The service was slow, but the food was good. I expect that the slow service was just our particular server, I saw other people getting moving along quicker than us. We ordered 3 kids meals...More
