Location and contact


A half pound of finely ground American beef flat grilled in its own juices. dressed in traditional texas fashion w/ mustard, lettuce, red onion, & dill pickle. served on a hot, toasted, grill-shined bun
If perfect aint enough, add a slunk of American, cheddar, or pepper jack
Star-cut w/ mayo
Cup-fried w/ chili
Chipped onion
Fried Baloney Sandwich (the Flat Hotdog)
Just like your mom used to make (for me). a thick quarter inch slice of American bologna fried & served;
Flat-Top Brisket Sandwich
This is not your daddys barbecue sandwich (unless im your daddy). A generous portion of slow cooked brisket, sliced form the point & crispy seared on the flat top grill. Served slathered whit mayo, topped w/ lettuce & tomato, & served on a grilled bun
Grilled Cheese Sandwich
For those born w/ grinding teeth only, your choice of American, cheddar, or pepper jack cheese. perfectly melted & grilled on texas toast
Crispy fried wright brand bacon (is there any other? ) Sandwiched between perfectly grilled texas toast w/ its two favorite companions-lettuce & tomato. Mayo mashes it perfect
Yard Bird Sandwich
If you gotta eat chicken, this is a good one... lightly seared & cooked whit out any oil or breading. A good option if your afraid of your cardiologist
Chicken Tender Basket
Three big homestyle chicken tenders served w/ your choice of fries, onion rings, or tarter tots. Try it as a sandwich
Upstream Sockeye Salmwich
Honey boy salmon mixed up the way my grandmother did for her croquettes. We patty it, fry it, & put it on a toasted bun w/ lettuce, tomato, & redneck remoulade. Nothing like it in dallas

Quaint and rustic - a good ‘ol fashioned Midwest dive bar located in the heart of Texas! Cold beer, awesome food! Get there quick, not overly spacious, but if you do have to wait, do it!

Ordered the cheeseburger with bacon and an order of fries. It was more than expected, the burger was really filling and took some fries home. Only negative would be having to wait as the place can get packed but well worth it!

Fabulous atmosphere. VERY small & crowded, but they have a system that works that gets you a table before your food is ready. If they weren't that good, this place wouldn't be so packed. The fires were cooked to perfection! The burger was moist and...More
