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

Our favorite place for burgers and fries. The milk shakes are great as well. We eat here usually once a week usually by take out. I love the onion rings. The have minced onion inside rather than a sliced onion. It's different from any onion rings I've had but I love them!

This is a staple in Russellville Ar. People stop all the time when traveling on I-40. They always hire school students to work for them. The food is great the place is clean!
