“Great hamburger place like old times”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

This is a great place to stop with fresh, homemade hamburgers. These taste like they should with each one made fresh to order. You have to stop here on the way to and from Garner State Park or any camping in that vicinity. We time our trips so we can have lunch or dinner here. The hamburgers are soooo good we haven't ventured to try anything else, but I hear the fried fish is delicious. Good small town atmosphere and I can overlook the small bathroom and dirty front door.

“Once upon a time”
Reviewed 26 April 2013

This was the best BBQ I'd ever had. Brilliant. Didn't matter when you got there, morning, noon or night, the BBQ was perfect. Now it's a hamburger stand serving baked meat. Pretty good hamburgers, average baked meat, but it ain't BBQ. Too bad.

“Our favorite hamburger / fried fish joint”
Reviewed 30 December 2012

We often go here after church on Sundays. Hamburgers a hot and greasy...like they should be. Best of all is the fried fish: large pieces battered in corn meal and perfectly fried. Good sides and tartar sauce.
Homey atmosphere with picnic tables that welcome lots of carving and grafitti. Only four stars because the front door is rediculously dirty and greasy; the one, very small restroom doesn't adequately accommodate a busy place.

“Delicious Burgers”
Reviewed 21 August 2011

We stopped here on our way back to Houston and picked up some burgers. We stepped inside to check it out and freshen up, got our burgers to go. The wait staff was very friendly and the burgers were awesome! I had a cheeseburger & my boyfriend had the avocado burger (but really it was guacamole). They were not very greasy and just plain delicious. One friend got the fries and said they sucked, but as far as burgers go, go get one! mmmmmm!
