This place is old and has no a/c but,walk out back and there is a beautiful backyard where they often have bands and , or those crazy sandbelt races. The pizza is good and hot and the beer is cold what more do you want. A great place to spend a weekend afternoon.

Great place for something different. Go on Saturday around 3:30-4:00 for some fun. Go to the outside (out back). Walk through the bar to the back/outside. Yes you can bring your kids to watch. It is fun for everyone and it is free to watch. You can order drinks and pizza while waiting for the races to begin. Get there early for a good seat or at least a seat in the shade. Very unusual.....totally Texas! Great to do at the beach for something different. You can also park in the back so you do not have to walk through the bar. They have an outside bar for ordering drinks too. Enjoy the races!

I went in to check it out because a local had told me the pizza was good and the two drunks at the bar and the not so nice bar tender kind of scared me off with a family. We got hungry after a fishing trip so i decided to go and get a pizza to go and I am glad i did. This time the guy behind the bar was really nice, we was a professional runner and he made an awesome pizza and was just an all around cool guy. Its mostly a local dive and not really a place for kids but the pizza is good and the breeze is nice.

When you walk in you're surrounded by piratey decor, friendly people and the aroma of freshly baked pizza. Order the Gaffer! It was delicious with a generous pile of delicious toppings! Great selection of beers and home of the belt sander races! Heading back again tomorrow!

Best around. Only found one place who beat 'em and that was Hell's Pizza in New Zealand. But you don't have to go that far to contest my findings.
