Diablo Burger

Stumbled upon this place and man I am glad I did. The food way great but the staff seriously! My son had a bike accident and was so self conscious about his face and his teeth. I took his bandaid off to let it breathe since he had on a mask while on a boat. The guys instantly asked him what happen and made him feel like it was totally ok. If you truly knew what that did to his self esteem I cant thank you enough! Told him chicks dig scars and I hope he sees this! Then when our food was brought to us by someone different he said hey they wanted me to say chicks dig scars. 🤣 thank you guys for not only good food but having some of the nicest employees I have ever met!

Texas Fries

if the pig and the potatoes knew that they contributed to this meal, I guarantee they'd be ok with the sacrifice they made. It's mouthwatering a delicious.
