My fiance and I ate @ Big Red yesterday for the first time ever. The food wasn't bad at all but my goodness the service was the worst ever! The sad thing about that is, the lady OWNER is the person who waited on us. She was absolutely the rudest person ive dealt with at a restaurant. She rolled her eyes at me when i asked her if the Catfish Curls came with sides and got rude with me when i asked if she wanted me to write down my license number and DOB on my check. The hushpuppies were amazing but if i do ever choose to eat here again, it'll be through the drive-thru due to a bitchy owner who apparently doesnt know how to treat NEW customers.
This is a very interesting dining facility. The restaurant has been in business for many years and has a statewide reputation. While it is clearly a burger place, I hestiate to classify it as fast food. The facility has enough volume that it may be a bit of a wait before you place in the order line puts you on the food receiving end of the line. The burgers are larger than most of the typical burgers found at the chains, but I would not rank them any higher in quality. Overall, it is an interesting and differnet experience to eat at WhattaBurger and you should try it yourself sometime and make your own judgements.
Big Red Drive-In has long been a staple of the Russellville community. Serving up hamburgers, chilidogs, catfish, and more, they have something for everyone. Four generations of students have passed through the doors of Big Red on their way to afterschool activities and games. I can remember hanging out at Big Red, eatting a 1/2 lb bacon cheeseburger, tatertots, and a handmixed banana malt while waiting for the high school football game to start. The service is outstanding and the food is great especially for the price. The average meal will run you around $5 and you won't leave hungry.
