For the latest stop on the Burger Bucket List tour, Heather Baker went down to Hot Springs to check out the historic Ohio Club.
The venue, founded in 1905, is the oldest club in Arkansas. The bar has seen a number of famous faces over the years, including Al Capone.
And while the Ohio Club might have a history and a reputation for drinks and music, its food menu is just as impressive.
Chef Michael whipped up a few of the spots specialties for Baker, including the Ohio Burger, a 7-ounce patty topped with pepper jack cheese, bacon and an onion ring — an “o” for Ohio.
There’s also one of Baker’s favorites: whole fried okra.
“We’re about the only ones that do whole fried okra,” the chef says. “You can get it as an appetizer; you can get it as a side item.”
Then there’s the “Classic Quad,” a mountainous stack of four patties that Chef Michael says is “as big as some people’s head.”
“I don’t know how people eat these,” he says. “I just cook them.”
The “Holy Guacamole Burger” features, as you’d imagine, guacamole, but with no top bun.
For vegetarians, the Ohio Club also serves burgers featuring plant-based Impossible patties.
“They have everything at the Ohio Club,” Baker says. “So you’ve got to come here.”
Tune in next week to see what else is in store for the Burger Bucket List.
