Several tipsters have reported the Mammoth Orange as shuttered since 2013. We're leaving it on the maps, since the building is still of interest (and perhaps it'll reopen).

Our family thinks we are nuts. "You're going to drive 50 miles to eat a hamburger in an orange because you saw it on Roadside America?" "Why yes of course, cause that's the way we roll" we tell them. Well, both the hamburgers and the prices were great! Next time we visit in Arkansas we plan to go back on a Friday night so we can try their catfish and prawn special.

I absolutely love the Orange. I've lived in Redfield all my life, and as a matter of fact, worked at the Orange for a very long time!

Mrs. Earnestine Bradshaw opened the Mammoth Orange in 1965, similar to A "Mammoth Orange" drink stand she worked and managed in California for years. My Grandfather, F.P. Baugh, along with Mrs. Earnestine's husband, William, built the Orange.

It has remained open for all these years. Other than Holidays, the ONLY day it has been closed is on the day we buried Aunt Earnestine (of course, she wouldn't hear of that if she were alive to have a say so!). Hand spun real milkshakes, daily lunch specials, and a large menu awaits! Oh, I forgot the friendly service!

Mammoth Orange - Remembering Ernestine

I have been going to the Mammoth Orange since I can remember.

Mrs. Ernestine Bradshaw opened the "Big" Orange in 1965. She was the most amazing woman I have ever known. I couldn't go in there without getting a hug. Sadly, she passed away last year. She is missed by the whole town.

Mrs Ernestine organized and donated her time and supplies to ensure we had fireworks on the river every Fourth of July, and baseball for the kids every year. She even coached softball. She is the only woman I ever called Granny. The Orange is now owned and managed by Cynthia Carter, Ernestine's daughter, who has the kindness and compassion of her mother. There are pictures on the walls of some of the Redfield baseball and basketball teams that the Mammoth Orange has sponsored over the years. If there were pictures of all the teams, they would cover the inside and out.
