“Good quick lunch right next to galleries”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014

Stopped for a late lunch at this unassuming place. Good sandwich (chicken, spinach, cream cheese panini) once a little seasoning was added (the proprietor mentioned keeping salt out of foods because of old clientele in Rockport). The purple hulled bean soup was flavorful and chock full of ham. Service was fine and prices okay. Recommended.

“Good for a quick lunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2014

Started our first day in Rockport with lunch here. Kitschy atmosphere inside is fun. Had the soup and half sandwich special. Tamale soup was OK, chicken salad sandwich was tasty. No frills, but for the price, not a bad lunch spot with good service.

My parents have been coming to Rockport for their winter get away for years. So they took us to meet Rusty and his hospitality was genuine and warm. The food was great and the atmosphere fun.

“Not great but good prices for decent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2014

For the prices and service, I would say this is a very good place to go. Don't expect great food, but it was better than to be expected at the prices. And Crazy Rusty himself waited on us and is a very good host.
