Two Post Employees went to Stomp’s Burger Joint located at 3107 Highway 146 in Bacliff to taste some of the cuisine the restaurant has on offer. Both employees—Roland Dressler and Hart Parris—had very positive reviews about the burger joint. Roland went to the restaurant on Monday, May 15 and Hart went there on Friday, May 19.
We were greeted by three cheerful waitresses and seated right away. One of the waitresses, Sheyanne, promptly took our drink order and quickly returned to take our meal order. The restaurant serves chicken for lunch just like my mother tried to use to make and, for our meal, we (my wife and I) chose grilled chicken, mashed potatoes, corn, Texas toast and garden salad.
Everything tasted delicious. The mashed potatoes tasted homemade, the corn and Texas toast perfectly topped off this comfort food and the gravy made everything just right! The garden salad was full of crisp lettuce and crunchy croutons, and all the vegetables tasted fresh. The only problem I had was that the grilled chicken might have been overcooked.
We picked the perfect lunch spot to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was a friendly and clean place to enjoy with my sweetheart.
As we left, we asked for a takeout menu and, though Sheyanne let us know that they were out, she did refer me to their website and Facebook page. All in all, Stomp’s Burger Joint specializes in hamburgers but will provide a variety of other comfort foods to satisfy your cravings. For comfort food and western sports bar atmosphere, I give the burger joint an 8.05 on the Roland scale.

I visited the restaurant with my friend Tammy. We started off with the Licker Skillet Enchilada Dip. It costs $6.99 and is a favorite of all eaters, with boneless marinated chicken breast, cream & cheddar cheese, green chili and poblano peppers served with tortilla chips. It was wonderful! It was hot and creamy with lots of chicken, just a little spice to liven it up, but with the addition of the cream cheese, it was still palatable to Tammy’s seven-year-old granddaughter Khloee. The chips were hot and crisp; far superior to what one is used to getting at the start of a meal!
For dinner, I had the Jezzabelle and Tammy had the Texas Tumble Weed. My dish cost $7.59 and was a 100 per cent Angus beef patty cream cheese slice and special raspberry chipotle sauce, yum! First of all, the burger is huge! The raspberry chipotle and cream cheese made this a sweet and spicy, creamy delight. The eight ounce, 100 per cent Angus beef patty made in house and always fresh, never frozen, is the base of all their burger patties. For someone who rarely eats red meat, it was just wonderful and reminded me of what I used to eat in my childhood! Tammy’s meal was 100 per cent Angus beef patty with melted Swiss cheese and tons of grilled mushrooms and onions. It normally comes with tomatoes, but Tammy chose to go without them. Because the burger was smothered in ingredients, she could only eat half. She also complemented her burger with wine, but the restaurant seems to have a myriad of beer choices as well.
We also had the rattlesnake eggs and if you enjoy jalapeño and cream cheese, then this is the dish for you!
We topped off our meal with hot apple pie a la mode. It was the perfect dessert to have after an exceptional meal. Despite the fact that they were slammed, the service at the restaurant was great!
