Overall I like this place. I had the Jalapeño Burger. It was very good. The prices were fair. If I had to fix one thing I would suggest better hamburger buns. For some reason the one I had seems like a plan old cheap bun I can get from the grocery store.
I will go back.
As seems to be the theme with many of the restaurants in SA and in Texas, bigger is better. The portions weigh in on the heavy side and the prices are pretty good. On a hungry day, I would shoot for the 1/2 pound cheeseburger with added avocado and a small side of tater tots (which can be shared by two people), though the 1/4 pound would do just fine. And if you are feeling really daring, or just have the need to share, you can shoot for the full pound. I was never that insane.
Other items such as the salads, hot dogs, and chicken sandwiches match the goodness found in their burgers and fries. The drinks also match the size of the meal. Also, definitely try out the armadillo eggs as an appetizer...these are tortilla chips with jalapenos covered with two cheeses on top.
Beyond the food, this place has a genuine Texas country feel. When you walk in, you feel like you are definitely hitting a country dive, but this is a location frequented by all sorts and is one place that you shouldn't miss! Parking is pretty slim in front of the place, so look for some spots right across the street.

I been to many hamburger places not to be snobbish, but I have, and I tried many different ways, foi gras , soy, charcoal, German, burgers. but for what is worth this place gets it just right a none pretentious burger with exactly what I needs, nothing more nothing less, so stop by and eat a really good Hamburger
