Today’s adventure took us to lunch at
Gonzales Burgers. Mac and Lynette had already been here, and after hearing them talk about it, Mark has just been biding his time to go try the burgers for himself. Well, today was the day.
They open at 10:45 and are open until 2:00 or until the meat runs out. They grind the meat fresh every day. Therefore, they only have a limited amount each day. We understood that we would need to arrive early…okay…let’s see…we are 23 miles away so, that meant we needed to be headed that way by 10:30 to arrive by around 11:00.

So, if you are ever at the corner of
14th and Silver in Donna, Texas, be sure to plan on a stop at Gonzales Burgers!
