Took my daughter on a surprise trip to the beach and I wanted to find a small place to eat. We saw the shrimp burgers and had to try them so good! And soo many fries! We were so full! And it made def made our trip one of the best so far.

Exactly as everyone said. Tiny little place, parking lot is just an unmarked dirt lot. But the two young ladies hustle with cheer to take your order and deliver hot food. I ordered the shrimp burger. Was not sure what to expect, but it had great reviews. I might not call it a burger as the shrimp were small perfectly fried on a bun, with coleslaw and ketchup. Nothing really holding them together like a burger. However, this is not a complaint, just a comment. It was delicious!!!...read full review

This is such a cool little place! The waitress came right up to my truck and tuck our order almost as soon as we pulled up. I ordered the fried oyster plate with onion rings and it was amazing! Just be aware that you have to eat in your vehicle, but that wasn't a big deal for us!
