Great local flavor with funky A-town flair

I've never had a bad meal here yet, and the atmosphere is fun and low-key. Their food is juicy, full of delicious calories, and not a dieter's fare, but you should definitely eat it on the patio with lots of laughter and conversation as you watch the town drive by.

Bopping around the area, we lunched here. The selection of burger choices can be overwhelming with a large variety. If you're hungry they have you covered with 1/3, 1/2 or 1 pound burgers. They also have a variety of other sandwiches. The pastrami was tasty -but it does come grilled so don't be surprised. They have indoor and outdoor seating... More

Stopped here for a late lunch, not during the noon hour or during after-school, so it wasn't packed and was quite relaxing and enjoyable Burgers were above average, not amazingly good, but better than average. Fries were first-rate. Didn't try a shake. What I liked was that they have a wide range of burgers on the menu, would keep it... More

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

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.

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!
