Good buns and fries

Pre race tradition of burgers and fries. The buns were awesome fresh and soft. The fries were different - curly seasoned steak fries. Really good. Onion rings were average. Weird salad bar - you point to what you want and they make it for you. Not huge salad bar but adequate to feed the wife... read more

We've stopped in here many times for lunch and if you are familiar with burgers from Fuddrucker's this is the same thing (only better), including eclectic casual decor. You order and pay up front at the counter, they give you a receipt and then you advance to the drink counter to pick up beverages and find a table while they... More

Great burgers. It was lunch time and almost every table was taken, we thought it would take a while to get our food. It came out fast and delicious.

I've been hunting for a good burger place in CC since I moved back. While this isn't my favorite burger place (Hopdoddy in Austin, TX you're still my fave!), it is a pretty darn good burger. I like to order the two small burgers and the salad. While you do not make your own salad, you still get a rather... More

Growing up in Corpus, this was one of my favorite places for burgers, 30 years later, it still is. I go at least once whenever I am back in town. It is way better than Fuddruckers, 5 Guys or any of the other "upstarts". Other reviews mentioned the wait time. I have never had an issue, orders are always prepared... More

Love this place! I've been here several times and it's never disappointing! Cool atmosphere too! Burgers are cooked exactly to order and have great flavor. Curly fries I could make a meal out of just by themselves!

#1 Very expensive #2 Too slow #3 Cold, mediocre food My husband and I hadn't been to Wallbanger's in several years and I think I know why- It is just not that good. It takes forever to get your order first of all and then when you do get it there's a giant portion of cold, old fries and a... More

let it be said that less than a block away is a better burger that starts with a "W" and for a reasonable price, yet it is still more commercially made. This place has home made buns. Generous portions of fries, and all the fresh veggies you can pile on the burger. This is something I prefer. I recently found... More
