OMG! What has happened to my beloved hangout? I have been gone from home for bout ten years, been many places and have had many burgers and I always found myself comparing everyone of them to Barnett's. Telling my friends that they have never had a burger like that and the side of fries would just blow their mind! I come hom for a lil vacation and that's the first place I hit! Sad to see that it has been turned into a diner but no biggie, go up and make my order, totally understand the prices because of the economy totally worth it! I greedily grab my takeout bag and head back out to the tables and WTF!!!!! My slice of tomato was bigger then my beef patty, if you could even call it that, and a handful of greasy fries that whenever i took my dring the inside of my mouth would gel. Sad to see a childhood friend go....but the legend will live on, in my mind anyway :(

Siloam springs is all wrapped up in the down town theme and could care less about what people think. Where the hill top cafe use to be is (hispanic hill) now. Why do you think their widening 412 highway? So you can go faster to get out of siloam as fast as you can nothing there anymore.

Barnett's was sold a few years back. The owners are different

The city had no say so in the widening of 412, that was the state. Instead of complaining, why not do something about it!?!

Barnett's was the bomb back in the day. The big barrel for the fountain drinks, hot doughnuts, real limeades, real fries, flying saucers, chili buns and the burgers will never be forgotten. The end of an era for sure. I have eaten there once since it was sold and other than the cleanliness,nothing was the same.

Yes, I was shocked when I got my first cheeseburger there with the anemic little pre-frozen meat patty. The place had such a reputation when we got to town, but I found out as time passed not many actually still go there for food. Just a good ice cream stop with the kids after middle school lets out. Was equally shocked when they expanded the place...

Guess the lack of choices in Siloam allow an old name to limp along and the occasional anomoly.
