Stopped in for lunch with my daughter and we both order their special for that day which was the Philly Cheesesteak sandwich and side. The place has unique atmosphere and was crowded. The sandwich was the best I ever had and the sweet potato fries...More

I have to really be in the mood to eat here, and really be hungry because their food is so heavy. The food is definitely unique and unlike anything you get in Joplin, the ambiance is nice too. The service is pretty lax and can...More

Instant Karma has good food, good service, and a good beer selection. In my opinion their liquor selection is weak if your looking for a lunch cocktail.

Don't let "hot dogs" being in the name stop you from eating here. It is a great take on hot dogs - not your typical mustard and ketchup. Very good and you'll be full when you leave. Great atmophere too!

Not your typical eating spot. Located downtown in historic rustic building. Brings the hot dog front and center as a meal option. From basic dog to over the top creations. Chili is excellent, too, both meat and veggie varieties. Don' forget to try the delicious...More

This trip, we both tried burgers instead of hot dogs. There is an entire selection of grilled cheese burgers--burgers that are nestled between two grilled cheese sandwiches instead of buns. Yum! The restaurant is clean, spacious, and has a fun atmosphere with friendly staff. The...More
