Worth the trip.

Close in space in strip mall. Parking can be difficult but the food makes everything worthwhile. Good food and cold beer. Like the beef stew at lunch.

My daughter ordered from the children's menu witch includes a drink but she wanted a Root Beer that comes in a bottle and is not included with children meals, no problem we would be happy to pay the difference. We were told we don't do that here so my wife said well can you just bring me her drink and... More

Fun friendly wait staff but disappointed in food. I don't know of any restaurant that serves a chicken sandwich with nothing on it...absolutely nothing but chicken and bun. A side of BBQ sauce is another upcharge. The sweet potato fries were good but those were an upcharge. And watch out if you order dessert. Be prepared to pay another $10... More

We love stopping by Quacks for great food, good beer, and friendly service. I'd highly recommend the "Whole Lotta Cuban Ciabatta" or the "Big Fat Greek Burger"!

as a road stop lunch off I35, it was a pleasant surprise. .. Good soup, excellent small steak, and very good draft beer selection.

I've been here quite a few times. Great food (from scratch) good portions at mid/high prices. I'm a fan of the happy hour(s) appetizers and 2-1 half n quacks (black and tan with lots of options). Come for the food, and stay for the crazy friendly servers and daily food specials.

We discovered this local gem through social media reviews, and were delighted in all our evening meal selections. All the food was fresh, portions were on the generous size. We enjoyed Meal sized Salads, Tenderloin, Steak and BBQ, everyone was pleased with both the food and customer service. If you don't know this local favorite, try it on your next... More

We arrived and were seated right away, with roughly half the restaurant filled. Our server greeted us quickly and took our drink order, this took roughly 10 minutes to be delivered, which seemed really delayed. We then proceeded to order. We had some questions about why the ribs were the only item that required a sharing fee, but you don't... More

Bloody Mary was amazing, food was amazing, bartender on spot... what more do you need? The decorations were fun to look at. The menu is huge! Hard to decide because everything sounds great! Can't wait to go again. Maybe I'll go tonight!
