These hamburgers are made with 100% beef and made like how hamburgers were made in the late 1950's-1960's.

This place looks exactly like the dairy queens of my childhood. Although dated, it appears well maintained. The food was better than expected and the service was as expected for a fast food type establishment.

Always enjoy everything we have had off the menu. Great grilled cheese if you are looking for something to eat on Fridays during Lent.

Off the beaten path of I-10, this small town drive-up burger joint is always hopping. Aside from the usually burgers and sandwiches, the menu is loaded with a variety of choices including Mexican food, baked potatoes, and numerous baskets. There is a drive-thru or you can park and order at the window. When your food is ready, the call out... More

Prices are very reasonable and food is fresh and very good. Their catfish baskets are wonderful and their milkshakes are the best my husband and I have ever had

We like to call in our order when traveling from LaGrange to Katy. They'll have it ready at the drive thru. We have never been disappointed. The french fries are really good too. I've heard the steak finger basket is good, but haven't tried it since a delicious burger is usually what I want. Picnic tables outside. Many flavors of... More

This little hole in the wall is full of good people and delicious burgers. You can come by any evening of the week and you'll find the locals enjoying juicy hand made beef burgers. They'll even grill the onions when asked. I can't vouch for any other of their products as I only stop by for their burgers (and their... More

Love getting cheeseburgers and fries here. They are always tasty since they make their own patties daily. The shrimp plate is very good too the shrimp are big and the homemade dressing is a delight. A good bargain for your money. And don't forget to get a Bluebell shake!!

This is my favorite place to get a hamburger!! It is a must stop. From I-10 take the old HWY 90 road and enjoy a scenic drive across the Colorado River and pass the old courthouse square. Dairy Cone is just a block or so from there. It's like an old car hop. Reminds me of when I was a... More
