Traveling through and made a great choice!

We were traveling through and needed a stop for lunch. We read Trip Advisor reviews and found Sylvester's and it did not disappoint. We had 3 different kinds of burgers and one veggie burger and fries. All 4 of us were so completely stuffed full. And while we were eating, we all had sauce dripping... read more

I had my doubts about Sylvester's Burgers but it was a warm summer evening and we decided to eat somewhere where we could sit outside and Sylvester's had outdoor seating. I was very impressed with my garden burger plus seeing other plates going by to other customers looking really good made me change my mind about Sylvester's. It may be... More

Sylvester's serves the biggest, juicest hand made hamburgers on the central coast. It's in a small building on El Camino Real in downtown Attascadero. Order their fries and a shake to go with it YUM!!!!!!

These are great hamburgers. There is a wide selection of different kinds to choose from. I think they should include a few fries with them, so you don't have to order separately. But, other than that, no complaints. They do a great job. You also get a free burger on your birthday!

If you are in the mood for a burger, fries and shake its hard to wrong at Sylvester's. Make sure you are hungry as portions are large.

Okay so besides In and Out Slyvesters is probably the best burger you will find in the North County. Its consistently good and you can sit inside or out. It's not inexpensive but won't break the bank either. The salads are equally good so try anything and you won't be disappointed.

Add at this quirky burger place about a month ago. I would have to say Sylvesters serve one of the best burgers I have ever ate. They are big and delicious! I had the Ortega Burger and I was not disappointed! Just make sure you have lots of napkins before you set down to eat!

If you're looking for a great hamburger and milk shake go here. They stay pretty busy but the place is well-managed and they move the line along quite well. They have a nice outdoor picnicking area to sit and enjoy the outdoors as well. We sat inside so we could enjoy people watching while we ate.

If big burgers, real fries and onion rings sound good to you this is the place. The music is loud and the ordering line was long at dinner time, but friendly, responsive staff made it fun. Healthy salads as well as wine and brews are also on the menu.
