Most of the sodas were out. There was a help wanted sign up. They got our order wrong. Didn't care for the fried mushrooms or fries. Burgers were very good for the price. Good selection of ice cream for dessert. They also serve chicken wings and salads. There is a lot for kids to do while you eat including a... More

Where to start? The facilities are very run down and in need of major upkeep. The picnic tables are dirty, in need of repair and painting. The playground equipment is falling apart, the slide on the play set was broken and dangerous. They were out of several key items: curly fries, chocolate ice cream, sweet tea, etc. The french fries... More

We've eaten as a family here a bunch of times, especially since it is located right across from our church :). I love the rustic charm of the inside and we usually sit outside under the covered patio to watch the kids on the playground. It's great that you can always have an eye on the little ones and it...

Visited with family. The Staff are friendly and service was great. Fries are good, but burgers are middle of the road. The Burgers could be a little thicker, but that is my preference. I'll probably go again.

Just stopped in, saw the place from hwy 281. Very rustic and appealing. Great food, nice people. Hamburgers and curly fries are great.

This restaurant is filthy! The worst hamburgers and service I have had in a very long time. Very disappointing given its close proximity to our home. I would love to see a Woodrow's or similar establishment around this area.

Burger joint with good portions. The "backyard" is a fantastic outdoor area for kids to run, climb and play. Even has a small fenced in area for soccer! Got hungry kids you want to turn loose and let off steam, then this is your place!!!

Walking into this places sparks the fun in my attitude. Its got a cool, casual vibe that I like a lot. You place your order at the counter, and find a seat waiting for a call for order ready.

Great Burgers and charming Texas atmosphere. Big backyard area with a deck that is great for parties. Play area for kids. Definitely worth trying out.
