Dumpy looking dive that might scare you away at first glance. Small place that allows for all orders to be handled individually. Only six(6) tables. Be prepared to wait. Trust me, it's worth it. Even after you're seated and have ordered expect to wait. Remember...You're on Island Time! We spent two hours there. Worth every minute. Got a chance to talk to the most beautiful girl in South Texas...my wife. She's a true southern girl and ordered grits as a side with her order. Perfectly cooked as were her bisquits and gravy meal; no canned gravy. I got the bacon and eggs with blueberry pancakes. Don't think I've ever eaten pancakes with real blueberrys in them. So many blueberreys that I felt like I was eating a cobbler. They were so light and fluffy, at least 1/2 inch thick AND they covered an entire dinner plate. A true meal unto themselves.
Lunch featured that traditional southern favorite...chicken and dumplings. Wasn't quite ready when we left so I placed a to go order. Came back an hour later (we stayed a block away at the Tarpon Inn) Got two orders as well as banana pudding and a carrot cake muffin. I think the most beautiful girl in south Texas is in love with me again after 37 years.
Food was better than the picture with a monkey; but that's another story.
