This is a nostalgic piece of Springfield history that you will remember for a long time. If you're visiting and are a foody, it's a definite must see. It's an unpretentious and maybe a little scary quonset hut decorated with a lot of unusual artwork...More

This place is a Springfield tradition and it serves food that will make you remember the old days. If you like an old fashion atmosphere and the kind of food restaurants served in the 50's you will love this place. But if you show up...More

This place has been serving unique and tasty chili to Ozarkians for many decades. Great cheese burgers, cheese fries, coneys, etc. Food, service and decor as funky as you'd expect for a place in a Quonset hut!

I have to say that my brother would travel back from Baltimore just to have this chili. They have their own recipe and it is beyond good to your taste buds. You have got to try this if your in Springfield.

People rave about the chili, I dont get it, it's OK but not great. The onion rings looked prepackaged and frozen, I didn't try them. . The burgers were shockingly a 10! They really are that good. The waitress was also a 10! looks, humor...More

Fun, unique atmosphere. The chili was okay. However, the cheeseburger was delicious! Our server was great! She was very helpful and seemed to sincerely love her job.

I see reviews that say it wasn't as clean as they would like it. REALLY!! It's Caspers so shut up! Several classic items that people pack into every day and come back time after time. They probably appreciate comments that don't bring people in that...More
