“Very disappointing - overpriced & self-service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

If you are ordering food, you walk in the door to the left. You are expected to order at the counter and pay there. You will have to ask for a menu because they are not on display. $33 for 2 burgers and chips/queso. And you have to go get it yourself! You get a buzzer and go to your table. If you want anything to drink, you have to stand at the bar and order & pay separately there. Again, you carry it to your table yourself. The beer was good & cold, but really... I should get a discount for being my own waitress. Chips/Queso were terrible, and so not worth the price! Burger was good, but not worth the price. Fries were my favorite, with the breading on them. No silverware to scoop up all the fillings that fell off the burger. Decor was cute for a bar, but given the bar setting I did not dare scout out the bathroom. We went in April, but I get the feeling this bar must be crowded in the summer. It's ok for a stop on the way home from fishing because you can be really underdressed.

“Straving and found this gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

If visiting Padre Island look for this hidden gem. Im sure locals know all about it. Finished a day at beach, and could not find anywhere that sounded good. Local directed us and WOW loved the food. Huge portions, so share if not too hungry. Although they have weird system where u have to go to bar and turn in order it is delivered to table. Service could be better, but would eat here again in a second.

“Atmosphere good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

Average burgers. Crowded and not sure it was worth the wait. Parking was full. Service was fairly quick considering how busy they were. I did have to clean off an empty table, go to bathroom and get wet paper towels to wipe it down.
