Jasper

Looking for the best deep-fried hamburger in Arkansas? Look no further! Jasper is home to the second oldest restaurant in Arkansas - The Ozark Cafe. This classic diner is best known for its creative specials like the deep-fried hamburger and biscuits with chocolate gravy and is the perfect place to bring the family before embarking on the endless outdoor adventures that Jasper provides. With a population of less than 1,000  – and located less than an hour away from Russellville, Harrison, and Branson – Jasper is a great town to raise a growing family. It was even named one of American Cowboy magazine’s “Five Spots for Family Reunions,” boasting a beautiful downtown square and courthouse. Travelers can also enjoy a scenic view of Jasper, as Arkansas Scenic Byway 7 cuts through the center of the town and offers spectacular views of the Ozark Mountains and The Buffalo River - the nation’s first national river. Jasper is also located near the popular town of Ponca, known for its caves and elk-viewing.
