Hole in the wall that not many visitors know about. Ever time I'm in Austin I try to make a stop here for some really good catfish. Usually do takeout for lunch but sometimes I eat in. Never been there for dinner.

Had been on a diet for a while and I was excited to eat something juicy. Maybe because I was having high expectations it was like an average burger. The fries were big and they give you a lot but it had a sweet flavor....More

Drop by for a burger or take out. Very good but not the best in Austin or just down the road on 620. Try the new Mighty Fine Burger trailer just next door. Best burger in Austin and maybe in Texas.

It's been a few months since my last visit and I stopped off with a friend for take-outs. We devoured the catfish and fries and argued about the coleslaw. Our only problem with this meal was that they are soooo stingy with their coleslaw. It...More

The fried catfish is wonderful! Kids chicken nugget meal was big enough for 2 kids and they ate it up. Nuggets are real chicken pieces. Will definitely go back!

This place is small, comfy, and dang good eating, I had a hamburger which was almost more than I could eat! If the 620 is crowded at rush hour, you might want to stop and smell the roses!

I've been going here for years and the food is very consistent. Really good burgers and fried fish. However, they have the best chicken fried steak around.

I am hooked on their catfish, and whenever I go there, I order their catfish. So fresh and crispy and a delight. Always wish that I got more coleslaw though. Outside eating area is fun.
