The Outrigger Grill
Crystal Beach, Texas - Permanently closed A victim of Hurricane Ike
After being virtually destroyed by Hurricane Ike, it has never been
reopened and what is left of the building is currently for sale.
The Outrigger Grill, located in Crystal Beach, Texas, is just up the road from the Bolivar Ferry on Texas 87. Its a good place to eat and its a fun place to eat. The decor is "Texas" with humor. Lots of funny signs to read while you wait for your food.
This is not fast food, its food cook just for you. I didn't spot one warming lamp or microwave in the place. No wimpy fountain Dr Peppers here, you get the whole can. ...and you'll need it if you order what I ordered.
I am a burger man. I ordered the Jalapeņo Cheese Burger, we split an order of Freedom Fries. (There was plenty).
Now we all know that the trick to serving a good cheese burger is not just the 100% U.S. ground beef, nor is the sliced Jalapeņos and diced onions. It's the "presentation".
That burger topped with an orange sliced just begged "eat me", but first it begged, take my picture. So I did both.
Cost for two? ( we ordered the same thing and had more than one can of Dr Pepper each.) About $16.00 including the tip.
