Flying Burger
1898 E University St, Magnolia, AR 71753, United States

Review №1

I'm rather biased in favor of the flavor of a "hundred dollar hamburger", not available at any, "Drive-thru". During a recent "Fly Through" in Magnolia, this establishment wins the "Burger Trophy"; and for under TEN bucks.We experienced our 1st Flying Burger visit on recommendation of a local patron. Clean, friendly, 50's Diner Atmosphere. Reasonable prices and indeed, GREAT Burgers, made to order. Get the Basket for best value. Comes with fries and drink. For dessert, follow that with a large, delicious, "home baked", sweet cinnamon roll (see photos).

The last time I got a burger combo and it was amazing. This time I decided to try a shrimp and catfish combo. It was okay but I wouldn't drive here just for that. However the burgers are the bomb!! Just my opinion!

Review №3

Always good food. Large selection of items and everything is well prepared. Fries are non frozen hand cut and are wonderful. Others with me had catfish and shrimp and they said it was very good also

Review №4

The chicken basket and fries were outstanding!! The service was very efficient and I'm honestly so pleased! Would definitely eat here again!

Review №5

My first time eating here and I was very impressed. They have good customer service. The Hamburgers are freshly made juicy with flavor.Great menu lots to choose from like fresh grilled salmon,shrimp. Well worth the visit.

Review №6

Oh.My.God. The food is so delicious. All prepped and made in front of you. And considering that, it's still VERY quick service. My favorite burger joint, everything is always perfect!!

Review №7

I had the 4 piece shrimp & 4 piece catfish combo basket. It came with fries and hush puppies. I also had a cup of seafood gumbo. All was very delicious. They had homemade tarter and cocktail sauce. It was my first time there and I shall return. Next time I will probably try a burger.

Review №8

Always love this place. Great to see it expanding across the south. More than just burgers. My wife loves the fish! Never had a bad meal :)

Review №9

Amazing place to rest and eat, the feel of a family dinner!

Review №10

Very good burgers and fries... Haven't tried the fish but they do seafood as a main item along with the burgers..

Review №11

4 piece Catfish plate to goFish was pretty good, fries are def my favorite. Worth the stop if passing through Magnolia and looking for a place to eat...Texarkana, AR Resident

Review №12

What a pleasant surprise this was. Came into town to visit family and was staying at the hotel across the street. Got checked in and needed a bite to eat. So glad that we picked this spot. Burgers where spot on. Just what you want in an all American smash burger. Patty was cooked to perfection and the fries are delicious as well. They also have a ton of other options to go with if you're not in the mood for a burger. Do yourself a favor and stop in here!

Review №13

Absolutely Phenomenal.... had 1/2 pound boiled shrimp with greens and potato Excellent. I saw Alot of customers eating the Fish tacos, that's what I'm eating Tonight!!! The Cinnamon roll was 1 of the Best I've ever eaten

Review №14

Flying Burger has the best burgers I have EVER tasted! Hands down the ebst burger joint in the area

Review №15

Can't miss wuth this place. Great food and service

Review №16

I love the flying Burger. I've been here many times, and continue to return for the same reasons. The food is good, the portions are generous, and the service is very good even when they are extremely busy at lunch rush hour.I normally stick to the single or double Burger, which is always cooked exactly to my request.My only complaint is they don't have onion rings, and I don't particularly care for their style of French fries, just a personal preference. I have mentioned to what I think is the manager several times they need to add onion rings, but to no avail.Regardless I will continue to return to flying Burger, because as Burger joints go there near the top of the list!

Review №17

Love This Place!!! Every Time We Are In Magnolia Arkansas This Is Our First Stop!!!

Review №18

One of the best hamburgers I have ate. Great service.

Review №19

Loved it. The Burger was awesome and the Fish tacos were better than great. The ice tea was superb. Love love love loved the cinnamon roll. The salad was great.

Review №20

Great burgers! Try the hush puppies and cinnamon rolls. When they are busy, the parking lot is a mad house to get around. It was very poorly designed, especially trying to exit. Also when they are busy, it gets very congested with the lines you order from. Again, poorly designed.

Review №21

FOOD NETWORK I DONE FOUND YOU ONE!!!! MAGNOLIA ARKANSAS HOLD UP WAIT AH MINUTE!!! Everything Made Fresh, Hand Patted Burgers, Fresh Cut Potato Fries , BlueBell Ice cream on top of Dat Delicious Cinnamon Roll FOODGASMIC FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE INDEED

Review №22

Best Burger PERIOD! Been to 3 locations and food has been consistently excellent. Wish we had one on the MS Gulf Coast! Someone down here needs to buy into this franchise.

Review №23

Swept and mopped floor right by my table while I was eating

Review №24

Good burger friendly service

Review №25

I dined in for this visit and while the food and selections were amazing. A place such as this should not major cleaning taking place while customers eat, dust, debris can potentially fly into customers food and who wants to be overwhelmed by cleansing product smells while they eat. What if they are allergic to the chemical in use at the time?

Review №26

The Magnolia locations are the best!

Review №27

Always great food! Love the burgers. Food is always fresh and service is 5-Star!

Review №28

Good variety of food. Service was fast even when they were very busy. I had the shrimp and crawfish basket.

Review №29

Terrible experience. Ordered ahead as we were told. The lady on the phone had no idea what was on the menu, and couldn't tell us basic information. I ordered the mushroom burger. Received a grilled chicken sandwich, and no hush puppies that I had ordered.Bossier location

Review №30

Love it!Food is great

Review №31

This place was a surprise, with a great menu of FRESH food prepared to perfection. Spotless clean and bright. The folks are very polite and helpful. So far, I had a delicious and juicy burger and the awesome grilled salmon. What a find!! Definitely going back for thirds.

Review №32

Great food and great atmosphere

Review №33

My favorite is the spicy salmon salad with cranberries! Italian dressing and butter sauce! We eat this at least twice a week. It's delicious and feels healthy.

Review №34

Great food, great staff, food is quick and hot

Review №35

Surprisingly good. They offer fried and grilled seafood as well. Nice salads too. Don't let the look of the place fool you. Even a health nut can find something they like here.

Review №36

It was yummy and pleasant atmosphere ️ good service

Review №37

It's ... meh. The one right outside hot springs is better than the one in Texarkana.

Review №38

Would have never thought a burger place would have a great grilled salmon salad. If you're ever in magnolia, AR this would be the place to have dinner. It is the locals place

Review №39

Pretty neat place. Styled kind of similar to a fifties diner. Very good burgers and fish. Staff and owner is friendly. It can get loud and crowded during peak eating times. Definitely, a must try if passing through Magnolia.

Review №40

Everytime i come home, they see me lol best burgers around!

Review №41

It was close to closing when we arrived and there was a long line but they were able to take our orders and get us fresh and hot food in a short period of time. I love the fries with the skins still on. My only real concern in the way they leave the uncooked balls of hamburger out unwrapped. The meat is under refrigeration however they should cover them. Food was good.

Review №42

Best burger ever! Great selection of burgers and seafood! Highly recommend!

Review №43

Awesome place to meet up with friends. Great food

Review №44

Review №48

Very good food. Wonderful cinnamon rolls.

Review №49

This is a town classic. If you are ever in Magnolia, you HAVE to try Flying Burger. The food is so fresh! The atmosphere gives off almost a 60s type of diner vibe which is so chic. Everything is just amazing and you can literally look at the cuts of meat before they cook it. Super quick service so perfect for a larger party! 5 out of 5 would recommend!

Review №50

The food is always very good and so is the service

Review №51

Food was very very good, tasty, fresh,& hot! The tables were kept clean. Employee's were very attentive. They smiled often. Looks like some of them, at least the ones helping me were in need of a raise... The display of food really caught my eyes . Knowing the food was very fresh, was obvious. There was no wondering, if the food storage was clean and I didn't see any area that needed improvement. You, and your staff get a grade of an A! AAAAAA . Thank you very much. Oh yeah, the prices seemed to be just right...

Review №52

Flys in the summer and the one in eldorado hair cooked into my food never again

Review №53

Food was delicious. Service was quick. It has been a year since my last visit, and the food was still exactly as I remembered it. My family ordered the crispy chicken sandwich, double burger, and kids boat. Everyone was more than satisfied.

Review №54

Always good food

Review №55

First time here. We enjoyed the fried catfish and grilled shrimp. The staff was friendly and helpful. It was clean and comfortable. We will go again.

Review №56

Best burger in town. And fish tacos are amazing.

Review №57

A lot of options to pick from on the menu, but I went with burger and fries. The burger was delicious, but greasy and the fries was average as best. But I would definitely go back.

Review №58

Ordered chicken wings..... chicken was half cooked and swimming in grease. See photo!

Review №59

Real home made burgers and fresh cut French fries. Also great shrimp!

Review №60

Excellent catfish. Friendly Service.

Review №61

Great service

Review №62

It was a busy Friday night. The crowd moved through smoothly. From conversations overheard many had come for the first time either with friends or on their recommendation. They had been told what the friends who brought me said, Order whatever you want. Everything is good. Also from the yums around the dining room I would say that was an accurate statement. I had the fish taco. On my way out I picked up one of their famous cinnamon rolls. Popular opinion rules at this great eating establishment.

Review №63

Loved this place!!! Menu is huge! Friendly staff. They work very quickly. Would definitely go back.

Review №64

I especially love their fish.

Review №65

Awesome place to eat ! Always clean environment! Well managed place . Decent prices . Good food !

Review №66

One of the best places in town to get a hamburger/fries/tea. Or anything for that matter Lol. This place makes some of best cinnamon rolls i think iv ever eating. I like the 1950s era atmosphere. And old school music.

Review №67

Fresh burger and fries; great tasting g food.

Review №68

Great food and service. They just opened and orders were fast and accurate and the fish is American not overseas!

Review №69

I took my son here for lunch and I must say that I was impressed. I was expecting a fast food type burger. Wrong! The burgers were simply fantastic. They are as close as you can get to a true homemade burger.They don't ruin them with fancy toppings or spices...just pure American Beef. The catfish and shrimp were OK. They do give you a big serving of fries and they are not frozen. It has an old fashioned diner feel to it. The prices were very reasonable and the restaurant was very clean, even during the busy lunch hour. I will definitely go back. This is a must if you are in Magnolia, AR.

Review №70

Positive attitude great food. Came in late close to closing still treated us like family or better...great all way around

Review №71

Review №72

Fish is fried to hard and no seasonings

Review №73

Great food with a unique dining atmosphere. I love dining here. It's a little on the pricier side, but the food is 100% worth it. Literally ask anyone living in Magnolia about Flying Burger and you'll hear nothing but good reviews for the food. Definitely go here if you're passing through or just moving to town!

Review №74

Delicious grilled salmon salad. Generous amount of salmon cooked just the way I like it.

Review №85

I was in Magnolia for a business trip. I've traveled all over the world. I'm originally from Louisiana but now live in Little Rock. Haven't eaten in Paris and London you name it... The spice has a great menu and absolutely excellent food! If you're in Magnolia this is where you eat! Citizens of Magnolia consider yourselves lucky everything was excellent!

Review №86

Best Burger drive about 35 miles to get one of these and the French Fries are out of this world. They also have good seafood

Review №87

One of the top 3 burgers I've ever eaten!!! Great service and atmosphere.

Review №88

Very nice restaurant with great food and friendly staff! The best food we've since moving to Magnolia last week!

Review №89

This is a wonderful restaurant. Great display to showcase what's available. The menu is diverse and full of options. Burgers are amazing. Hush puppies taste like cornbread, and are moist. Huge open seating area. Lots of condiments including remoulade and cocktail sauces. Fresh lemons and onions and crackers for the taking. Truly an awesome place to eat.

Review №90

Margie in management was very rude when placing a phone order..I was inquiring about my order and she said " They were busy and she didn't have time to take my order " I told her that was rude and that I can go else where so she said ok and hung up in my face !! So I called back and ask for Margie .. (She answer the phone) No one worked there by that name according to MARGIE!! We want be returning as long as she's employed there.. and we spend good money there a family of 5 adults

Review №91

Chicken, fries, hush puppies were good. Fish was fatty and tasted old, "musty" even after removing the grey fat. Will try burger next time.

Review №92

Great fried shrimp. Entire family enjoyed their meals. Quality food and service.

Review №93

Love the food and love the service, can't wait for the Tulsa OK one to come in we will visit

Review №94

Before indulging in the best burger joints I've ever eaten, I've never known that a burger could taste this good. Food & service was amazing. Burgers are unbelievably delicious and I advice everyone that you will want too travel back and enjoy the very huge selection of food. I'm excited about my experience & can fathem what my wife's experience will be when I bring her along too enjoy the delicious food.

Review №95

Review №97

Always great food at a great preat price! Always busy, but don't let thst scare you away!

Review №98

The food is great and clean in side

Review №99

Can't beat the menu; it's wildly varied! Anything from Catfish to cheese burgers to steaks and Shakes. Chili, different soups ... A bit overwhelming upon first visit. They've got an ingenious food ordering system though - you simply have to try it - you WON'T be disappointed! Dining for the whole family.
