Always excellent! Expect to wait for a table but it's worth it. Lunch or dinner, there will be a wait

Great food and great service. Fries are second to none. Highly recommended. Burgers are some of the best in town. Atmosphere is wonderful.

Whether you are a visitor or a Fayetteville regular, a stop at Hugo's for lunch or dinner is always a treat. Great burgers, sandwiches and one of the few places that you can get a nice grilled trout. My personal favorite is the Chris' Chicken Po Boy - grilled chicken, tons of hot sauce with red onion and lettuce. Unless... More

Great Old Vibe, an Icon. Food is always spot-on with a wide array of available cuisine. Atmosphere is classic old school with lots of ambiance. Service is always; Quick, Polite, professional.Unfortunately, I TRY not to eat many burgers, but these are the BEST! From Burgers to Crepes, you can't go wrong! My Go To rest. in Fay.

Food was very good and service was great. The place was packed with college kids and square workers for lunch. They can pack a lot of people in a small place and it felt a little uncomfortable. They could do better if they had a bigger place and more room and keep up the customer service and food quality. One... More

This place has been a local favorite for decades! It has a fabulous menu and the food is just incredible! Very small place and there is usually a waiting line for tables, but it is so worth it! All their food is very good but I just can't get past the burgers! They are are just perfection! A must try!

My coworker suggested Hugo's. The line was very long and the place was packed on a Wednesday night. The food was amazing. I think this is the best burger I have ever eaten. Fun spot!

This is a dive looking place in a cellar off Block St. But they have really good food. If you like burgers you have to try one here. Fries come in a basket that will feed two people. A large selection of beers to wash it down with. Only draw back is the crowds of people trying to get in.

Heard numerous people informing me that Hugo's have the best burgers in Arkansas. The burgers here are wonderful and the cook will fix it to whatever temperature you want (from rare to well done). However, I don't think this is the best burger in Arkansas but a must in the NWA area.

Year after year, alumni make this a meeting place when they return to "The Hill" for SEC games or reunions of any sort. It's bit noisy, so not a good place for business conversations.
