We stopped at the shack after reading all the reviews. This is definitely a no frills eatery with the spotlight all on the food! First time in, just go through the small entrance and find a seat. Most tables are outside with a few tables in an enclosed back room with air conditioning. We definitely would of sat outside but mosquitos were rampant and we had kids in tow. Our server/hostess offered bug spray right away but was quick to check the enclosed dining area for us! Btw...she was awesome! Although, I didn't catch her name, she quickly engaged in conversation and tried to make us feel right at home. Lol...she even lugged my diaper bag for me while I wrestled with kids! Very genuine! If you are looking for a fresh burger to sink your teeth into and delight in a little grease and butter before the beach, this is the place! Our order consisted of the spinach & artichoke burger, plain & dry and bacon cheeseburger. You can't go wrong! They were all great! If you're a stickler for cleanliness, expecting a high end experience, then this may not be the joint for you. If you can handle outside roaming cats and overlook a bathroom/storage then you won't miss out on a great 1/2 pd burger! Cash only but atm's inside.

The burgers are good. You pay $1.50 for bottles of water instead of getting free cups of water. So that was a bit disappointing. My family drinks a ton so this wasn’t good for us! The atmosphere is a bit claustrophobic. Service was okay. Just an overall okay experience.

This place was awesome and fun. Stopped in here right by the lighthouse on our way back to Brownsville from the beach.

Any burger is great, just go with the toppings you are in the mood for at that moment and you can’t go wrong. The 420 and the egg me on are both solid choices!

Don’t forget to get an ice cream sandwich on your way out!

Thank you for taking the time to provide a review. We appreciate your business and kind words. Glad you were pleased with your burgers. We look forward to serving you again soon. During the summer, if you have time, come join us for free movies at the lighthouse (and of course, your favorite burger). Family fun!

I chose the spinach/artichoke burger and it was amazing. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Laid back atmosphere...which is exactly what i was looking for. Highly recommend if you're tired of the tourist prices for less than average food...this is the place for you.
