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.

Fantasic food (I would say 99% of it) and great service, quick and helpful. Cash only. Love coming here for a good bite with the family and taking it to the local park.

Nice little place that locals like me enjoy from time to time. I'm well-known around town, so I'm able to get the best shrimp on my shrimp burger.

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!!! And the hush puppies were wonderful too! No butter, but truly it was not needed! And for that with an iced tea, it was $8.50! Wow!!! Weather was lovely so sat at a picnic table and enjoyed. So glad I stopped! Hope to make it back while I'm in this area. Thanks for a great lunch and experience!

The service is prompt. The food, not so much(At least the burgers). I gave them two shots. Unless I'm wanting some good French fries I won't see a point going back.

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!
