Mr. Whiskers

Mr. Whiskers is a popular local spot slightly off the tourist track, but well worth the detour. Dinner is served in a basket, the traditional American diner way, but without the fast food feel. This is fish and chips with an extra dollop of  goodness. All meals are served with fries, slaw and Hush Puppies and go down perfectly with a dash of Mr. Whiskers sauce. The restaurant has a subtle nautical theme, while the food is all freshly prepared and the service is excellent.

Mr. Whiskers, 1538 Malvern Ave, Hot Springs, Arkansas, USA, +1 501 262 3474
