The food was good, but I felt overpriced for what it was ($10 per 1/2 lb burger). Nice staff. The seating is cheap and uncomfortable. Soda (canned) and water (bottles) must be paid for each time you want a refill. Perhaps just order a burger...More

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...More

Thank you for your feedback. Sorry about the wildlife, we work hard to keep them away but don't always win the battle. Perhaps our indoor seating would have been more comfortable.

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.
