We stopped there a couple of times to give a good review. They cook/boil the hamburger meat on a big pot and depending on how hot you want it they add hot sauce to your bowl. NO flavor, just boiled hamburger with hot sauce. The...More

This is a fun little lunch joint with Great Chili. You can order your chili as hot as you desire, however I suggest you use caution!

As the weather gets colder this becomes an even more favorite place to eat in Springfield. Is specializes on chili and it can be served alone or with other food items such as hotdogs. It's quick and inexpensive for lunch.
