Friendly service, excellent burgers!

I wanted to stop here after reading the great reviews but by the time we got into our motel I was too tired to go. My husband treated me to their takeout meal which was delicious! The burger was cooked medium rare (pink inside) and was very juicy with a tasty sauce. The side salad had lots of bell... read more

Drove 2 hours to have lunch here with the family and in - laws. This was my fourth time eating here. It was the best experience so far. The customer service was outstanding. They were friendly and very professional. Got better service here than a lot of nicer sit down restaurants. It's a little pricey for 7 of us out... More

What a great burger joint! Just like they should be. Everything about this place is perfect. The Burgers, the onions rings, everything! I'd like to elaborate but there is just no need to. Want a burger? GO!

There is complete truth in advertising when it comes to Sylvester's in Atascadero. The burgers are big and juicy and the varieties should be broad enough to satisfy most if not all burger lovers. One great thing about Sylvester's is that they are open on Monday, which is a boon if you are traveling down 101 and need a bite... More

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 down our arms. Awesome! Definitely... 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.
