My son took here on a family visit. The burgers were amazing. Everyone in the family loved their burgers, and there was something for everyone. For fun look up the magazine Captain Billy’s Whizzbang from the early 1920s. Fun trivia.

We were greeted with smiling faces and a willingness to explain the menu to us. I highly recommend the onion rings. We were a group of 4 and all enjoyed our food.

Although a bit expensive for a burger, this is the best food cart at the Magnolia Market. The burger was good, and made to order with whatever toppings wanted.

Everything was wonderful ... the whizz-pig burger (1/2 ground bacon + 1/2 ground beef) is so tasty and juicy. And you have got to try the whizzbang fries -- fries covered in cheese, real bacon, onions, and whizzbang sauce (yes a bit wacky, but oh...More

Building is old but clean. Staff is helpful for first time visitors. The mixture of pork and beef in the hamburgers makes the taste exquisite. The onion rings are great also.
