Like a place you'd expect in Austin - a place like no-where else. Well it's different, with some unusual combinations on the menu, but all very enjoyable. Being outside, be aware of the environment. Located in a very small and unique neighborhood across the street from the light house. You may have to look for the front door - it's not all that obvious.

Wait staff was extremely friendly and wife and I enjoyed the experience tremendously. We will definitely return when we need a "great burger". Try the cucumber tea - sounds strange - tastes great. Samples are available, at least to us. Probably you too. We live across the bridge - South Padre Island - but do not mind the short trip.

If you like an atmosphere like you would expect with Willy Nelson, give this place a try. It's a unique experience. We loved it, and will definitely return. Enjoy.

Thank David M

liked the burgers and funky beach atmosphere; fair pricing. Service was a bit slow. Fries were good and a selection of condiments was offered.

I have had a lot better burgers and for a lot better price. The outside seating is not so clean and can be very hot. The large lady who took our order was not very friendly either. A smile goes a long way with me. I think she was the "Jack" of Will & Jacks.

This establishment needs a sign out front to let you know that they don't want your business if you have children. I felt unwelcome the entire meal.

The burger was over cooked but I appreciated the unique menu. Annoying birds during the meal.

All in all, I would not go back.

The lamb burger was so delicious we returned a second time and found it equally incredible. The new owner, Lucy, has recently found her way to Port Isabel from upstate New York by way of Colorado and made us feel right at home. Both stops at this fun little restaurant with it's laid back vibe, great service (thank you Easton!) and great food made this a very memorable place to refuel. We highly recommend it and wish we had something comparable back in Colorado.
