I'm really not sure why people discuss Feltners Whataburger in Russellville with the Texas fast food Whataburger chain.  They aren't connected in any way and if the food at the chain somehow reminds you of Feltners it's because the burgers are both round and on a bun.

I've not seen the Texas fast food chain Whataburger mentioned in this thread.

Everyone from Russellville picks them over Feltner's.

AQ Chicken House when the only one that existed was in Springdale (I think they raised & butchered their own chickens down the hill from the restaurant). The fries they used to serve there were unmatched.....

It's still there, but aq hasn't been good at any location for a long time now.

I'm telling you guys, CJ's has Feltner's beat hands down.   The meat is ground in the store, fries cut fresh, and malts are awesome.  We used to drive from Fort Smith to Russellville just to go to CJ's, but then the family opened a similar store in Fort Smith,  Patrick's Butcherboy Burgers. CJ's is outstanding.  I believe the same family owns David's burgers in Conway.

I mean, you certainly posted their website. Not sure how that confirms whether or not the same gmail you owns both. Maybe they're not the same family. The guy that owns the one in fort smoh told me all the "butcher boy" burger places were owned by family members.  Maybe he wasn't talking about David's specifically.

Was The Station the place located SW part of downtown with the killer weekend breakfast? Aren't they closed?

Fuzzy's. Butcher Block. Casa Taco. Now Mr. Burger. ROTC - is it still open?

Everyone go patronize Hugo's - gotta keep the fond memories of my time on the hill open!

Slowly, over the years, Ozark Mountain Smokehouse closed up shop. It was a sad demise, much like watching someone pass on from a terminal ailment. The garden room on Dickson was a fantastic option, and a regular stop my last few years around Fayetteville.

My son lives for Mr. Burger after afternoon events (where we likely ate a sit-down meal elsewhere). It stunk up the car for a week, gave me heartburn for 6 hours, and usually left me hovering near a toilet, but I loved it. RIP

I'd forgotten all about The Station. Good call Okla. It is indeed gone and is now a Loafin Joe's sandwich place.

ROTC is actually still around, but not on Dickson St. any more. Remember The Hush Puppy on highway 112, north of the agri campus? That is where ROTC moved to. I believe they had a fire not too long ago, but they are still open.

Seems like a small price to pay for a good burger.

I'm really not sure why people discuss Feltners Whataburger in Russellville with the Texas fast food Whataburger chain.  They aren't connected in any way and if the food at the chain somehow reminds you of Feltners it's because the burgers are both round and on a bun.
Please note that there are two "t's" in Feltner's Whatta-Burger and only one in the Whataburger name.

Well, the article Sunday, and this one from 2013 never mentioned any such connections. In fact, in Sunday's article it stated his Dad was no longer involved in the ownership, but still "cooks" there.

I'm just poking at ya, RP.  I don't know if they're really related or not, but I doubt they'd want to mention their competition in a fluff piece, whether they are related or not.  That said, David's burgers are really good too, and they have unlimited fries...

The article Sunday talked a little about his Dad being in the franchise business earlier in his life, but I don't remember what they were if they mentioned it. The younger David did something else after college before starting this chain. He has big plans on opening franchises, we'll see. And I'm used to the poking, I've been known to occasionally do it on here, or so they say......

Is that the place on the NE side of town headed towards the hotels? I've been going to Batesville for about 3 years and always wondered what that place was.

It was.

They closed, as my grandfather says, from the landlord not wanting to make upgrades to the facilities. The landlord is a government agency that runs a rehabilitation center in an old motel next door. So the owner just closed up shop instead.

There were Kelly's in Wynne, Batesville, Bald Knob, and one other place that escapes me. The guy that founded them is gone now, and he built one for each of his children.

They were an Arkansas-built, small business. They leased the one in Bald Knob to that Chinese guy from the commercials. Hilarious. He said he was a good-ol boy, with good down home cooking.

I lol'd
