Absolutely delicious! Such a fantastic surprise (and a foodie Mecca)! Amazing food (mead, elk burger with malbec and clover honey, goulash fries, bone marrow, etc.) at very reasonable prices with fantastic staff (Jason is a gem). This Boston/NYC couple has eaten in some amazing restaurants, and we are enamored with Eagle Drive-In!

Don't let the outside of this little restaurant fool you! My husband and I have visited several times and have taken our college age kids. We love it and so do they!
Be prepared to wait for a table and your food, but it is worth it!!

We found this restaurant on TripAdvisor or would never have thought to stop there. We are so glad we did. What an amazing little restaurant. You would never guess from the outside that this place has a fabulous chef and very unusual things on the menu. We started with the Marrow appetizer that was simply amazing, who would have thought you could get something like that in a small town like Joplin? We then had perfectly seasoned and cooked flank steak and the best burger and fries any of us can remember. It was a gourmet meal for lunch! The owner was just wonderful, friendly and accommodating, the service was great and the food delicious. We will definitely make a point of going there again if we travel through these parts again.

Unique food. Location is small but worth checking out. Food is good and they have a quaint little bar.

It's tiny but quite an experience. The menu has a crazy mix of everything from ahi tuna and calamari to burgers. Clearly the kitchen knows how to prepare a tasty variety of dishes. Portions are big and prices are very reasonable. They only have about 30-35 seats and a little bar, but the staff hustles to make the experience pleasant. We went on the recommendation of one of the locals and were surprised to find many of the other locals had never tried it. They seemed to do a lot of take out and the line for seating was forming as we left. I would suggest going during off times, but worth the wait for sure!
