This burger place is a local’s favorite that’s easy to miss too, because it’s literally underground! This restaurant located right off the Fayetteville square is known for their burgers, but also offer tasty chicken fingers and dessert crepes. They are a great lunch or dinner place to sit down and have a burger in a friendly atmosphere. When you see the famous neon ‘Hugo’s’ sign, make sure to stop and have a delicious burger!

Arsaga’s at the Depot
Right in the middle of all the action on Dickson Street is this Fayetteville favorite. Arsagas is a great place for any meal! Their menu includes sweet and savory crepes, some various egg dishes, fresh hand-cut fries, soups and salads. In my opinion though, one of the best things they offer is their locally roasted coffee beverages. I have had a LOT of coffee guys, but this is my all-time favorite. This coffee has a more unique and roasty flavor that stands out in all of their drinks. Another great item I recommend that you add onto your meal is their herbed potatoes with aioli. They’re honestly another must-try at this restaurant. Whatever you may order, I know you won’t be disappointed with this great stop!

The secret is that they source their ingredients from small family farms and food artisans in the state of Arkansas. They support these local food producers in an effort to increase community food security. Stop by this tiny table, support local, and have a bite of the best Fayetteville has to offer.
