We have seen this place when we ride by but since its the new year we decided to stop and try one of their famous burgers everyone had told us about. Well they did not disappointment us, they were excellent. The home fries are the best! We will be back.

Excellent all around....And often your order is delivered to your table! Burgers are outstanding and obviously freshly formed on site! Sides are also great...And plentiful. The wine selection is whatever is on hand, but the beer, wine coolers, sodas and several teas are more than adequate. Live music is becoming more and more present. This standout is just outside 1604... More

This place has been around for years. They serve a great "old-fashioned" burger. Have lots of different variations on the basic burger. Sides are good, too!

Burgers were great, although somewhat expensive in my opinion. That being said, my family will return based on the great atmosphere and quality of food.

We try to run by Bobby J's when we are in San Antonio (2-3 times a year). Things have changed since last visit - counter staff wasn't very friendly (lots of mumbling) and we ordered right off menu- no changes. So, may look for another Pop's burger place next trip.

Loved the "down home" atmosphere! Great place for an inexpensive, regular dinner out. The 1/3rd lb burger was like a really good "Whopper", really fresh condiments. The fried pickles were pretty good for ones not handmade in house, as were the onion rings. The homemade fries were excellent. Loved the in- house made chicken fingers....not at all chewey. The staff... More

A good hamburger and friendly service. Live music on weekends. Building is a little shabby, but it adds to the charm.
