Eat beat

If you are ever at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock Benton Center and need a place to have lunch, I recommend the Burger Shack. The Burger Shack is at 107 S. Main St., just a four-minute walk from the center.

The Burger Shack has a small-town diner atmosphere. Patrons include local business people as well as students on their lunch break. Black and white checkered tiles cover the floor. Christian music plays from a radio in the corner. A toy train suspended on tracks in the air whizzes by, as you choose a seat. A variety of seating options include a stool at the bar, a table or a booth.

The menu offers a large variety of options. Appetizers, for $5.99 each, include jalapeño poppers and fried pickles.  You can get a regular cheeseburger for $4.39 or a hubcap cheeseburger for $10.99. You can also add bacon to your burger for $1.09. The Burger Shack has more than burgers to choose from.

You can also choose from hot dogs, sandwiches or salads. All sandwiches, hot dogs and burgers are served with chips; however, you can substitute that for fries for $2 more. There is also a daily lunch plate for $7.99. The Burger Shack has ice cream to choose from for dessert. Floats, sundaes and shakes are all $2.99 each.

I usually get the turkey and Swiss cheese sandwich served hot for $5.29 and substitute the chips for Cajun fries for $2.29. This is enough to fill me up. However, the caramel shakes look delicious!

The Burger Shack has a Facebook page where you can keep up with the daily specials and updates to the menu or you could call 501-778-2266.
