After a glorious morning of tubing on the refreshing Guadalupe River, we thought we'd grab a burger at a local place before hitting another loop of tubing. The river outfitter recommended a couple of places that ended up being closed on Sunday so we decided to give Daisy Duke's Bar N Grill a try. The fact that Daisy Duke's was located directly across the street from the outfitter and he did not mention this place as a suggestion for us to eat should have been our first clue.
We were a group of 4 adults and 4 young children ages 7-10. The place seemed pretty empty for the lunch hour (another clue) and noone acknowledged us as we walked in. We helped ourselves to the outdoor seating area since the inside reeked with smoke.
The prices on the menu were absolutely ridiculous. A burger - $7 - add cheese for an additional $1. The menu items came with a bag of either Ruffles or Doritos. (Several of us ordered Doritos but were given Ruffles because they were out of Doritos.) The "kids menu" had items that were priced exactly the same as the adult menu. Kids items were $7-8 each. Kids items!
"Philly Cheese Steaks" - $8 with a bag of chips. Half a chicken (we were told was bbq chicken - and it wasn't - $14 with a bag of (you guessed it!) chips! All items were served on paper plates.
The waitress took an extremely long time to take our order and were were preparing to get up and leave (after paying for the $2 cans of Sprite the kids were served) but the waitress showed up and apologized for keeping us waiting and said she was doing her "chores". Our food was simply described - bad. The Philly cheesteaks were Steak Ums. Our burgers were cold. Not room temperature. Cold. The chicken was extremely dry.
We spent the entire meal discussing how coming to Daisy Duke's would just be considered a "live and learn" experience and how we will pack a nice picnic lunch for our next tubing trip.
Please save your money (wish we could get our $85 before tip dollars back but we can't.) This place is in a great location and I'm sure is kept open by one-time visitors who dine and locals who go there only for the bar.
