Shrimpburger is piled high with delicious shrimp. Fried pickles are good. And, holy cow, the barbecue is the best you'll find anywhere!

This place is awesome. Service with a smile and quick. Milkshakes are good and go well with steak and cheese and onion rings. One of the better steak and cheese I have had in awhile. A definite place to return to next time.

Shrimp burgers are excellent, but so are the cheeseburgers, hush puppies, and onion rings. A good bargain with consistently really good quality food. Cash only, but they have an ATM :)
