1. South on Main

This uniquely Southern restaurant mixes the best flavours from the South with an innovative flair. Think simple dishes but on a whole new level. Case in point? Their unbelievably soft ‘n’ juicy beef burger.

It comes with cheddar, onions, iceburg lettuce, pickle & comeback sauce, and is so good.

2. Leo’s Greek Castle

Award-winning burgers, the cheapest beer in the state and tasty gyros – what more could you need? This locally loved Greek restaurant has a cosy vibe and out-of-this-world burgers.

Their signature burger is a tender 10z beef patty that comes *dripping* with American cheese.

3. The Purple Cow Restaurant

This retro diner is a family favorite for the nostalgic atmosphere. They serve up some delicious gourmet burgers and old-fashioned soda fountain treats.

Choose from the regular burger menu or steak knife burger menu, the Steak Knife Bacon Cheddar Ranch Burger is a firm favourite, topped with three slices of Applewood Smoked Bacon, two slices of Cheddar, and homemade Ranch Dressing, yum!

4. The Box

The Box has been around since 1948, serving some of the best burgers and fries in Arkansas, so you know it’s good. Located just off I-630, the Box is open for lunch only, so don’t miss your chance to get this burger.

Get the classic with Swiss cheese and a fried egg.

5. Big Orange Midtown

These are no ordinary burgers. Toppings are gourmet and downright delicious: Pecorino Cheese, Arugula, Fig Jam, White Truffle, and Mayo? Yes please.

Big Orange Midtown is ideal for when you want a big, dirty burger but in a beautiful setting.

6. David’s Burgers

David’s Burgers might be a chain, but it’s still absolutely incredible.  They grind the chuck steaks into the hamburger meat, no trimmings, fillers or added fat. It’s simply a perfect, juicy burger.

Plus, also walk around and give fry refills for diners working their way through the huge burgers.

7. The Root Cafe

100% of the meat and bread, and most of the cheese and vegetables that The Root Cafes use are locally grown or produced. Their 1/3 lb. burgers are ground fresh and hand-pattied daily from local, small-farmed and pasture-raised beef, with an addictive garlic mayo.

They also host a range of activities from food preservation workshops and guest speakers to music events and art openings.
