Over the years, I have seen this restaurant, but never stopped in. I think it was the name that stopped me. Saturday, I was hungry for fried shrimp and ""Googled"" and found this place. I live in Spring, and the weather was suppose to be stormy, but I decided to drive in to Crosstimbers to the Garden Oaks area and find this place. I was pleasantly surprised. I arrived right at 11:30 on Saturday, and there were only about 10 tables of customers. I noticed they were all eating fried foods: chicken, chicken fried steak, chicken fried chicken and SHRIMP! They have 2 front dining rooms with booths and the back 3rd dining room with tables (square and round). At the very front they also have a counter with maybe 15 stools. The waitress came up almost immediately, and I ordered ice tea and added with lemon. She brought it out and also brought a small bowl with 3 large slices of lemon (plus the one in the glass). She said, just in case! She asked if I was ready to order and I told her I heard the shrimp were good....and she said, they are the BEST! I ordered the Fried shrimp, with a baked potato and it also came with a lettuce and tomato (lot of tomato) salad. There was a basket of assorted crackers/melba toast and a bowl of butter packets (just like the old days). The salad came out and it looked like the thousand island dressing was homemade...it was good. Then my dinner came out with these beautiful butterflied shrimp, so nice and crisp, like homemade onion rings or something! It was everything I had hoped for and more. They also bring out the lazy susan with cheese, green onions/chives, and sour cream (no bacon) and you stuff your potato yourself. I still had salad left, so I added cheese and green onion to my salad. There was a thick slice of bread also in a basket. I noticed that no one got barbeque except one table, and people at that table also ordered shrimp and stuff crabs. This is a really good seafood place and I will be back probably every week! Enjoy!
Pros: Great food, baby boomers will enjoy the old fashioness of it!
Cons: Not open on Sundays or Mondays....
