Feltner's Whatta -Burger is a family owned, one-of-a-kind restaurant not to be confused with the burger chain. The service and quality are always excellent. People traveling I-40 often stop in Russellville to eat here. Their milkshakes and fried pies are an extra treat in addition to their signature "double-double" burgers and fries.

It's a burger place that is close to University Campus, so you know they do good business. My wife and I enjoyed eating there. We both had burgers, fries and a drink. I would definitely go back again.

If you haven't tried it, you need too. Good food, good value. Huge order of fries or get a half order. Now offering delivery.

Brought my family here after graduating across the street 18 years ago. Feltner's Whatta Burger burgers are huge. The onions dices. There seems to be no end to even a small fry. Shakes are great. Skip the chain fast food and eat at this classic.

My boyfriend got a big burger, I got a small cheeseburger and we split a small fry(not a typical fast food small) for $10!

We ate here as we were passing through to NWA. The burgers and fries were super yummy. This isn't a place for thick burger patties. This is the thin, crispy edges that remind you of diners. The shakes were good too, super thick. If you go during the week for lunch they have an awesome lunch special.

I don't even want to call this joint by anything but Feltner's because it promotes some confusion. This is way far different than any Whataburger you've tried before. For me it's a FAR better choice. Clean and comfortable, quick and friendly service, and one of those burgers that immediately takes me back to the hamburger glory days of the 50's... More

When I lived in this area in the 1990s Whatta Burger was by far the best burger place in the Russellville area. Sadly that is no longer anywhere near the case. The building is tired, the staff is tired, and the food is pedestrian. Everything used to be fresh and fun; now it is just large servings of greasy burgers... More
