This place was awesome and fun. Stopped in here right by the lighthouse on our way back to Brownsville from the beach. Any burger is great, just go with the toppings you are in the mood for at that moment and you can’t go wrong....More

I chose the spinach/artichoke burger and it was amazing. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Laid back atmosphere...which is exactly what i was looking for. Highly recommend if you're tired of the tourist prices for less than average food...this is the place for you.

Great burgers. Casual dining. They now have in and out door seating. Think its called the burger shack now though. Got 2 drinks and 2 half pound burgers for $25. Great local burger joint.
