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

Passing through Brenham skip the chain fast food joints and have a Burger and Milk Shake with the locals. Best Burger and Shakes in town.

We stopped here after some photos in the Bluebonnets in Brenham. We figured it must be great as there were lots of cars in the drive up and parked. This is a local eatery - a mom and pop joint it seems like. It's great to give business to places like this. We ordered some amazingly delicious milkshakes and burgers/fries/hotdog.... More

We read the reviews and decided to stop by and grab a quick bite-it wasn't very quick but was definitely worth the wait! The burgers were delicious and so fresh! The fries were perfect as well. The staff is very young and a bit un-managed, but they were very apologetic about the wait and were very nice. I will absolutely... More

Waited 40 minutes for a dang cheeseburger that I never received! I went up to the counter and asked why everyone was getting their food except me and she said oh I guess we gave it to someone else. REALLY! Never going back.

It may look like a hole in the wall but looks can be deceiving. Any Brenhamite would recommend this spot! The food is cheap but well made from their cheese sticks to burgers (good old fashion), and the shakes are a must!!! Can't go wrong with this place.
