Heard about this restaurant on the Daytripper. Was not disappointed as the menu was a complete smorgasbord of everything you could want that was fried or represented Texas. The portions were large, and we ordered two WhizPigs (half bacon and half hamburger). This definitely gave a unique taste to the meat, but it was a very good taste. Along with... More

Captain Billy's has been around for years, and they're as good now as they've always been. It had been years since I had been there (not sure why) but my husband & I stopped in there one Saturday. I got the Whizz Pigg (1/2 ground beef, 1/2 ground bacon). It was heavenly. I love bacon, so I knew I couldn't... More
