Our story begins in 1956 when Melvin & Aurora Davis purchased a Lone Star Ice House. They immediately changed the name to M.K. Davis Ice House. Little did they know they were history in the making. M.K. Davis began with ice cold beer, a few picnic tables, and Augie sausage botanas. As the number of customers began to grow so did our menu. Mr. Davis took the kitchen as Mrs. Davis took care of the customers. They began small by serving hamburgers, hot dogs, and fried chicken. During the 60s, is when M.K. Davis began serving their ice cold 32oz frosted schooners of beer. Throughout the years, they have added a variety of American, Mexican, and Seafood dishes including their infamous Chicken Fried Steak, Fried Pollock, and Crispy Dogs.
What began as a small ice house has become known as an Alamo City Classic. Although Melvin & Aurora are no longer with us, it's their legacy of cold beer, delicious food, and good ol fashion hospitality that we, as a family, strive to maintain.
