I like this place. It's not even the 50's style whatever that makes it appealing. What brings Jack and me back is the food (free for him on Wed nights) and the really "normal" atmosphere. You know how some places in Austin are so "Austin" that it just makes you want to laugh? Well, this isn't one of them. The clientele is from all walks of life in regular clothes enjoying fresh-cooked food from the brick oven. It's just a good place to eat.
The shakes and malts are really good. Too good. The pizzas are usually great, but I have had a couple that didn't get the crust quite right. The burgers are good, and a really generous portion in the kid's meal (FREE on Wednesday).
