This place is not popular with Winter Texans because of the ambiance. It is because they serve a burger that is absolutely enormous. Plus, they have one size of fries and onion rings and they easily serve two people. Lee thinks they put a pound of meat in the hamburger but it is probably more like 3/4 of a pound. Still, we ordered one hamburger and one order of onion rings and I couldn't eat all of my half. Everyone goes at least once a year and takes some newbie Winter Texans with them to share the experience.
The Gonzalez family has run the restaurant for years. The story is that the place was a butcher shop in the old days and Mr. Gonzalez felt sorry for some of the school kids who didn't have any lunch so he cooked burgers every day and took them over to the kids that would have gone hungry. Since he was cooking burgers anyway, the restaurant just sort of happened and now it still thrives while the butcher shop is long gone.
