    The beer biscuits have a good flavor, but they are heavy. They're almost as mean in themselves.

    Ever get a hankering for some pancakes, bacon and scrambled eggs? How about big sweet beer biscuits washed down with fresh, hot coffee? If so, mosey over to this down-home White Rock Lake-area eatery. Read more

    Is nice to sit outside. Feels like a lake-town restaurant with a strong community feel. I love the local ads on the coffee mugs. Breakfast was great! Had the veggie omelette and beer biscuits.

    Thick and doughy with a nice, crusty top, these baked beauties have a slightly sweet flavor thanks to the addition of beer to the batter.

    I personally don't care for sweet biscuits, but I've yet to order anything less than stellar off the breakfast menu. There are almost too many options to choose from!

    They close at 9pm. Sooo, if you get there at 8:30 they are a-holes. But Fridays are all-you-can-eat catfish for $9.99. But CASH/CHECK ONLY is way annoying.

    A great neighborhood dive. Food is great. Service is great. Floors are sticky and so are the tables. Wouldn't have it any other way!

    Get the flap, cluck and oink. It's great and even better if you add the banana pancakes.
