Food and restaurants in Springfield

Top restaurants

Burger Restaurant
“Our favorite burger joint in Springy! Black Sheep serves gourmet burgers, delicious fries, and shakes made with Andy's Frozen Custard! As far as menu recommendations, we pick both the Cowboy Carl and the Blue's Brother every time! There are a few locations in Springfield, but if you go to the Walnut location you'll be in the middle of downtown and can explore there after you eat!”
