Drowning in beautiul women where the burgers are almost as pretty as the girls.

Excellent burgers. Staff will sit down and eat with you if you pay the bill. I just dreamed that. My wife and I have been going to Sylvester's for years. We use to go to the one in Los Osos before we moved to Atrashcadero in 89. These are five star burgers at a five star burger place. Don't... read more

Juicy yummy burgers. The food here is great. Service is average, not great and not bad. Little on the expensive side. Also I always ask for the house sauce on the side because they practically drown the burger in it, and it can make for a messy meal. I suggest the fried mushrooms. Sooo good!

Don't expect elegant ambience, but do expect to experience the best burger in many miles. Plenty to choose from and they'll customize yours just for your taste. I like the hand wash spigot in a convenient place; not something you see everyday! Outdoor dining available when weather permits, otherwise sort of a '50s feel to eating indoors. All that matters...

This is a great burger joint in Atascadero, just south of the Carlton Hotel on El Camino Real. Really good burgers, fries and shakes!

The Mushroom burger is so messy, but it is chock full mushrooms! Not skimpy or stingy like some places, the burgers are really big too, sharing is not a bad idea, but I always save any leftovers I may have for later, because, when its that good, who wants to share?

My brother and his buddy took me here while I was visiting the area. They are regulars and love this place. I thought the food was outstanding and the service was excellent. Will definitely be back on my next visit.

This is our go to place for great hamburgers! They are VERY generous with their sauce; so if you want, it's a good a idea to order it on the side. The French Fries are terrific as well! The outside seating is terrific when the weather permits.

Someone at the hotel suggested this restaurant. We gave it a try. We ordered a Hana burger and a California Burger and fries. While we were waiting for our order there was a steady stream of people coming and going for take-out orders. This is where the locals go. When the server brought our food it looked delicious.

Just drove into town for the New Years weekend and stopped in to pick up a few meals before getting ready for New Years Eve activities. I ordered the Desperado and Mushroom 1/2 pd. Burgers and also got fried zucchini and the garlic fires on the recommendation of the girl taking my order. The food was all very good. What... More
