yummy!

Tasty burgers, fries, and malts! Lots of outdoor seating if it's too crowded and noisy inside. Lots of choices of burgers - turkey, beef, grass-fed, elk, etc.

high school kids favorite, packed at lunch and after school and well attended on weekends. It was unimpressive on any of the 3-4 times I've been there. Better burgers and better places for the 60+ crowd

I had the Pancho Loco Hamburger. It had a California chili, pepper jack cheese and Sylvester’s special sauce. I had to choose 1/3, 1/2 or 1 pound Pattie. I had the 1/2 pounder. It was excellent. I also ordered the French fries with side of the Sylvester's special sauce very tasty. We ate outside on the patio the heaters made... More

Enjoy the veggie sandwich or grilled chicken. Burger eaters will enjoy the special sauce. Outdoor seating with patio heaters great on chilly evenings.

food prep takes longer than your fast food, especially when they're busy, but they have some great selections and they're all good

Some staff members could be friendlier but the food is delicious and the atmosphere is fun! They give a free small burger of any style on your birthday with ID. Nice touch!

Building is UGLY Yellow and the ambiance is truly old town fast food, but the faire is GREAT. If you're hungry for an outstanding hamburger, go to Sylvesters. They have other stuff too but I haven't tried it.

Nice locally owned hamburger joint. Food is average. Atmosphere average. Ate here twice won't go back. Not worth the money.

I really wanted to leave a solid double thumbs up review. Unfortunately, this is no longer 2008 and Sylvester's is no longer the purveyor of great burgers. While the service remains friendly, the restaurant is clean, the food has quietly slipped. Specifically, when my family and I were recently choosing a place for burgers, no one suggested Sylvester's Burgers. It... More
