I had a tuna salad on sourdough--and it was incredible. It was a thick helping white albacore tuna on soft and yummy bread. This was accompanied by a pickle spear and baked veggie chips with onion dip. All for $4.95--can't beat that. My companions had roast beef on organic wheat and chicken on wheat. They loved it.
At the next table was a couple doing the whole Appalachian Trail (Georgia to Maine) who were taking a few days out to stay at Hot Springs while the woman's feet and ankle swelling went down. They had been on about a month and expected to finish by the end of September. Very impressive! They were visiting the Hot Springs spa every day for the waters, which was our next stop that afternoon!
We bought take-out desserts for sale up by the cash register. The chocolate-cream cheese brownie my friend bought was nirvana, but I chose the chunky monkey cookie instead, thinking healthy. It was not as sugary or chocolatey as I had hoped, but was good and probably a lot better for me than the brownie. A good value and pleasant folks. It's one of only two places open for lunch in Hot Springs!
