This is the place to go for burgers in Midland. The fat burger is superb and tastes like a burger should taste. The french fries and onion rings are always made from scratch the way they should be. The best pies you will ever taste. Don't waste money on the big chains in Midland. Brooks is the place for superb... More

Mr Brooks has the very best steak fingers in the business! Great cheeseburgers and hand cut fries, but Mrs Brooks pies are beyond compare. Like my grandmother used to make, only a lot better. I love the coconut custard, but the chocolate and pecan are both winners too! They go fast, so order the pie when you place your lunch... More

The bugers are the bestest I have had in quite some time. None of that frozen stuff. Mr. Brooks use to let you bring your own beer in and he would furnish the opener. I don't know if that is still allowed are not. Don't forget the pie, you won't regret it.

Mrs. Brooks is famous for her Pies. Mr. Brooks will make you smell like a Fat Burger and you'll go back for more. Fat burgers are huge - the size of a plate - so be prepared to split or have a doggy bag!

These are some biiiiig tasty burgers! Juicy, handmade patties as big as some dinner plates are what make this place famous among Midland residents. You'd be seriously shortchanging yourself if you didn't finish your meal with a piece of one of Mrs. Brook's homemade pies!(Available in chocolate, pecan, and coconut.). Although the service can be poor from time to time,... More
