    I loved working for the Feltner’s when I was in high school. I graduated in 1978. Still go there every chance I get when I’m in town. They have the best burgers you could ever ask for!

    Being going to Whatta-Burger for more than 35 years. Went to Arkansas Tech, right across the street and this was a poplar lunch stop. When you went back to class after eating, everyone knew where you had been (the aroma permeates your clothing). After college, it has been a special place to stop for lunch or dinner . Bob Feltner used to donate white sacks to our church every year for “Christmas ” sacks where, candy, nuts and cookies were filled in them to give away. Can’t beat a Whatta Burger and sure won’t be hungry after eating all of those golden fries.
