I have driven past this place thousands of times before I decided to stop on night. It had plenty of vacant tables for it's size, even though it was during the world series. I ordered what had to be the largest burger on the menu, the Hangover Burger. By the way I am writing this after my second time there. The burger was perfect both times. I don't know if it was the onion rings or the bacon on the burger but it has a great flavor combination.

Stopped in for a coffee. Shared an order of beignets and an order of bread pudding. The coffee was truck stop variety, nothing special. We had arrived from New Orleans the day before and didn't have a chance to get some beignets there. I don't get their popularity. Fried dough covered in icing sugar. The bread pudding however was delicious. Soft, cake like with a nice buttery sauce.

While visiting Galveston Island, we hit up the Gumbo Diner. The restaurant appears to be an old Dunkin-Donuts' style building, that has been madeover into a quaint diner spot compete with a wait staff & tables.

We, naturally, ordered the Gumbo. I only recommend getting a cup - the bowl holds enough to feed two people, with leftovers to take home.

The menu held many seafood options, and the service was pleasant from our waiter, but overall the quality of the food was lackluster.

This place has an excellent breakfast menu, great service and good food. The place is very small which can lead to a waiting list. The dinner menu is ok but breakfast is there greatness...
