As I love looking for odd places to eat, this was a hit! The hamburger, fries, and pie were great. The staff was very friendly, and the inside décor definitely kept the conversations going. The menu was small, but that keeps the service fast and the food specialized. We shall be back!

I have to say that my brother would travel back from Baltimore just to have this chili. They have their own recipe and it is beyond good to your taste buds. You have got to try this if your in Springfield.

People rave about the chili, I dont get it, it's OK but not great. The onion rings looked prepackaged and frozen, I didn't try them. . The burgers were shockingly a 10! They really are that good. The waitress was also a 10! looks, humor and service. . The burger comes with a ground meat patty, pickles and onions on... More

Fun, unique atmosphere. The chili was okay. However, the cheeseburger was delicious! Our server was great! She was very helpful and seemed to sincerely love her job.

I see reviews that say it wasn't as clean as they would like it. REALLY!! It's Caspers so shut up! Several classic items that people pack into every day and come back time after time. They probably appreciate comments that don't bring people in that want it to change to fit their needs. It's been around for decades so don't... More

I've been going to Casper's for a few decades but moved away 18 years ago. My wife & I were passing through Springfield & decided to see if it was still open. It is and it is pretty much the same as always. Great chili in a funky setting. Seating can be hard to come by during the lunch hour.... More

We ate lunch here and I would highly recommend eating lunch here. It is a little rounded roof diner that when you enter the front door you step into an eclectic dining area where the walls are plastered in posters, old time postcards and other hodge podge memorabilia. They serve delicious old time diner hamburgers and even better chili. They... More
