Took my husband there on the way home from our honeymoon in Eureka Springs. He had never had a Short Stop (Buss Stop) cone. I ordered a baby one - he is looking done the size chart when I cover up anything over the kids size. He orders a baby one as well. All of the way home he keeps... More

We stop here every time we pass, without fail ! They have AMAZING tall ice cream cones, easily 12" and more, and otherwise great burgers, wraps, and plain country fare. We had breakfast here recently, and the pancakes took up the entire plate. The biscuits and sausage gravy were over-the-top, as was the country omelet. They also have great homemade... More

This is a small grill and ice cream place inside a gas station/convenience store--doesn't sound like a good thing. But this is a terrific place to eat! Their burgers and other grill items all taste great, are good size and gotten to customers quickly. Prices are very reasonable, especially the size of helpings and fries. The folks working here are... More

Living temporarily on nearby Beaver Lake, we pass this restaurant /grill almost daily. On way home today stopped for 'to go' dinner. Huge hamburgers done perfectly with an order of french fries. Tasty and filling. Wrapped and packaged perfectly...they know how to do 'to go.' Staff made me feel welcome. Keep the grill hot...we'll be back.

Every time we come to our cabin we stop for an ice cream cone at The Short Stop. It's the best ice cream I've ever had by far!!

I have family in NW Ark, so I wanted to meet an old NY colleague who now lives in Eureka Sprigns, so we decided to meet halfway in between there and Fayetteville. I searched TripAdvisor, and we chose The Short Stop in Garfield. Garfield is a little town of just under 500 on the main highway that connects the four... More
