Good tasting burger. Cooked on the flat top grill. Good char. Cash only, ATM on site. It's a dive but it is good choice.

This place rocks! Huge, delicious burgers! Canned brews, awesome relaxed atmosphere, jimmy buffett style. Cash Only! They have an ATM too... downtown port Isabel near the sea life exhibit! Hit the little market next door- handmade jewelry, purses, table mats etc etc!

Very small dining space outside. It was not what I thought it was going to be. Lots of flys that kept landing on our food and drinks. Bring cash or you have to use ATM inside, as they only take cash. Burgers were fine, nothing special. We would not go back.

From the outside you wouldn't guess they have amazing burgers! We got our food to go but they have an outside sitting area looked really cute. Friendly staff and wait wasn't long at all but mind you I went during the slower season.

This was one of the best burgers! My husband said it rated in his all-time top five! The only two cons were the flies and no soap or towels in the men's restroom.

The exterior of this restaurant is deceiving. Don't let that stop you from going in. We had the BBQ burger and the Blue Cheese burger. Both were excellent! The food IRS were very good as well. Definitely worth the visit.

If you like fat thick burgers, you will love this place. They are one pound burgers. All eating is outdoor and when we ate there the flies were so abundant and annoying that we were not able to sit and enjoy our meal. That was disappointing. We ended up pouring some ketchup on a napkin and setting it on the... More

Thanks to local friends' advice, I had the best burger with avocado and fries I've had in YEARS! My husband liked his lamb gyro too. When we told the fun and friendly waitress we were virgin Winter Texans, she told all the other people eating there. They all yelled "Howdy! You'll be back!" Food and service were great! The decor...
