Before taking on their customary circular shape, burger patties were typically molded into triangles, which fortified their form but made bun production all too complicated. Feast on refined shapes with today's Groupon: for $5 you get $10 worth of breakfast or lunch at the Big House Burger Joint in Conway.
Big House Burger Joint’s menu keeps mandibles motivated throughout the day. During earlier hours, the chefs shower the crowd with bites such as the Lifer breakfast platter ($6.49) built from two eggs, biscuits and gravy, bacon, and hash browns. Breakfasteers can also prescribe custom morning meals by ordering à la carte dishes such as ham steak ($2.99), grits ($1.49), or french-toast slices served by the set ($1.09). The lunchtime bell rings loud and proud, Pavloving guests into salivating over smoked specialties such as the Yard Bird half-chicken ($5.59) and the Five-Oh, which splits buns with a tasty twosome of pulled pork and slaw ($4.09–$4.79). Burgers ($3.59–$5.59) pair custom toppings with patties made daily from never-frozen Black Angus beef and a secret blend of spices known only to the chefs and sleuthing ketchup bottles.
The family-friendly restaurant welcomes diners with cozy blue tables, hip-hugging booths, and prisonly-touches such as barred windows and coffee mugs held in place with pint-size balls and chains. Likewise, The Big House Burger Joint pairs delicious fare with a mission to provide ex-convicts a second chance with employment opportunities.
