Not your typical burger joint. But it was amazing none the less. Very cozy. Kind of pricey but you pay for what u get and what u get here is quality food.

When we are in Smithville we usually always grab a salad at Pockets they have a variety of salads and hamburgers . Very good food and the restaurant is decorated with memorabilia from movies that were filmed in Smithville Texas! Very clean and nice atmosphere.

Love their menu. Plenty of choices to suit just about anyone. Small quaint place. Nothing fancy but kept in good condition.

The reviews said that the burger was great so I tried it - what a disappointment. It cost me $11 for burger and sweet potato fries with NO drink. There was nothing special about the burger at all - really - at all. The movie memorabilia is cool but from a one time food sample - won't go back again.

Good clean place. Service was very good and the food was very good. Have a large menu from hamburgers to catfish and a lot in between. A good place to stop for a meal, just pull off Hwy 71 for a quick stop for food.

Very large number of menu options with an outstanding beer selection and great ambiance. You really cannot go wrong with anything on the menu but I always enjoy the fish tacos and their burgers are outstanding. The owner is a great local community activist as well.

Ate there twice and got sick both times! The second time I had to go to the hospital. Can't believe I was dumb enough to go back the second time.
