Susie Q has been serving NWA for over 50 years now and still running strong. "Q" serves up some of the best burgers, shakes, malts, limeades, and many other American favorites from their powder blue, neon accented, and rustic rust covered building just off the square in downtown Rogers. One of the few drive in restaurants remaining the "Q" is a favorite of many heading to Beaver Lake for some weekend fun. While the "Q" is a popular weekend destination when heading to the lake there is no reason not to make it your weekday destination for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Today we made our way to the “Q” for lunch for a rendezvous with “Mom’s Special” a quarter pound burger topped with a quarter pound of sliced ham, cheese, and all the fixin’s! My first “Mom’s Special” but definitely not my last. Other favorites include the “Big Daddy” with 2 quarter pound patties, a quarter pound of sliced ham, 3 slices of American cheese, bacon, and all of the fixin’s (no ketchup, thank you very much), also the Cock-a-Doodle Piggy with a breaded chicken breast, quarter pound of ham, 2 slices of American cheese, topped with ranch dressing (Ouch! add insult to injury), and all the fixin’s, and the Big Pig with a hand breaded pork tenderloin topped with all the fixin’s. My dream "Q" sandwich would include the following:

“The Pork Bomb”
-Breaded Pork Tenderloin
-Quarter pound of sliced ham
-Three slices of bacon
-American Cheese
-The Fixin’s (Mayo, Lettuce, Onion, Tomato, Pickles)
-Optional, a fried egg over medium

This is a great place to get your burger fix and to reflect on days gone by where your order is prepared fresh and served by people who actually care about the quality of the product being served. Make your way to Susie Q for a great experience, better food, and a taste of days gone by.
