All food here is prepared after you order it. The catfish and cheeseburgers are the best! Milkshakes are very thick, made with Blue Bell ice cream. The only downside is that seating inside can be at a premium during busy times. If possible, call your order in ahead of time.

Had dinner on Friday night and the drive-thru was out to the street! We found a parking spot and went inside for some catfish platters (four strips of fish, fries, and three hush-puppies). Good food and wonderful service. Of course, Blue Bell ice cream is served. Do go & enjoy!

We've eaten here almost every time we go to Austin and always get jalapeno cheeseburgers that are huge, delicious, and cheap.

A tiny dining room but huge food! Classic burgers, fries and such. The milk shakes are a must. If you are short on time....make more time. The drive through takes a bit and the dining room is typically crowded (maybe six tables) so plan your day with time to make a stop, you won't be disappointed.

Better than the chains! We'll be coming back for sure. Loved the burgers!!! Not packed with grease either. ❤️ Lots of others got grilled chicken salad. Some had chicken fried steak baskets and they looked great! I think burgers and crinkle cut fries are their speciality!!! My daughter ordered crispy fresh onion rings. Again, no grease! Really yummy. They served... More

This place looks like an old Dairy Queen and has a similar menu, but tastes MUCH better! I always get the chicken taco salad, which is very tasty, is a huge meal and only $5.50. The ladies who work there are always friendly and super fast, though the place is usually packed. I see lots of people eating burgers, so... More
