Stopped in here by chance for lunch during the week. Great burgers and incredible fries. I had the black and blue burger and a cold beer. My wife had the Eagle Burger with a fried quail egg on top and raved about it. These are gourmet burgers with lots of variety. Very nice and clean, yet small. The place on... More

If you are traveling don't go to McDonalds go here! Fresh good food and great burgers if the kids/adults want them.

On our way from Edmond, Oklahoma to Branson. This was a pleasant stop for lunch! Husband got steak tips that were good and kids like their burgers. Fries were awesome and craft beer selection seemed small but we'll crafted. Would definitely come again!

Had lunch at the Eagle Drive-In. Food was very good!! I had and Elk burger which was delicious. Also on order was rib-eye steak salad and calamari. Everyone was very pleased with the meal. The hummus starter was delicious. The service was great and friendly and I recommend a visit if you're in the area.

Wonderful lunch at an unexpected spot. Amazing steamed mussels with beer and pancetta. Blacked salmon with an unusual yet delicious blueberry BBQ sauce. Friendly service and great beer selection. Great places come in small packages!

This place doesn't look like much, but once you get a menu, you'll be amazed. It's a really small place, but worth waiting for a table. It's more than just a burger joint or diner. some of the food choices are exotic to most. Our food was absolutely delicious. We will definitely return.

This place gets well deserved high ratings. The wait staff is friendly and professional. The food is exceptional. The Eagle Burger, which is topped with a quail egg was the best burger I've ever eaten. They say the burgers are a third of a pond ... I think they must be half pound burgers. They are delicious. The fries that... More

Don't let the exterior facade fool you. This place has fabulous food and service. We tried several side sauces with our fries (you get 2 for free) but the garlic aioli was our favorite. I ended up foregoing my using mayo on my cheeseburger and slathered the sauce on instead. My husband had the chili cheeseburger, covered in what he... More

The burgers are excellent and they should be, starting at $11 and heading toward $20 quite fast. But they come with fries and choice of dipping sauce. The elk reminds me of moose at $17. The mussels appetizer are pretty special. They have a good selection of beer, including quite a few regional micro brews on tap. Definitely not fast... More
