The waitress is great and fun. It is very small and one of the original restaurants in Springfield, MO. The best thing to get is the burger. The onion rings are also great. Do not go there for a salad and tea, not happening. You need to do it once for the experience.

In town for a family get together, stopped by because a parent remembered the original Casper's from 50 years ago, before they moved to current location. Unique doesn't due it justice. Quonset hut building and food that is worth going out of the way for. we had Frito Pie, Coney Dog, Beans with ham and cornbread-which was fantastic. Great service, small, worth the wait if you have to. Drive past the chain restaurants and stop in you will be glad you did.

Although very small, fun place to eat. Supposedly Springfield's oldest restaurant. Tried a Casperita - basically chili and cheese rolled in floured tortilla and smothered in more chili and cheese then topped with sour cream, lettuce and tomato. REALLY good.

This is a unique restaurant in an old style Quonset Hut. This is an one of a kind restaurant that is famous for it’s chili, they also have the basic hamburger, fries and onion rings. Atmosphere and decor is different. What I go for is the experience.

There is so much to see here. Small place. Small menu. But food is good. Definitely recommend the onion rings. So crunchy a.d so much flavor. My daughter could only finish half of her Stuff Coney with chili. It was huge!
