The only positive about this burger place and bar are the onion rings. The balance of the food is quite forgettable. The staff is slovenly in appearance and speech and can barely be bothered to speak clearly to the customers or clean the tables. Cambria has a drought, and the only restrooms open are disgusting, overused port-a-pottys.It is also a... More

The ribs I had were perfect, and it came with BBQ beans and garlic bread. My husband had the Tri tip sandwhich and Onion rings. It was all very good. Good place to eat, have a drink, and watch sports on TV.

Good burgers, salad, chowder and onion rings, Atmosphere is just ok and it's cash only (ATM inside), but the food is good and very reasonable prices.

It's a walk up and a grill so the atmosphere won't bowl you over but the folks are nice and the food is good. We had clam chowder which wasn't bad and my husband had a decent burger. I tried the fish and chips. The pieces of fish were really delicious but they are pretty much fish stick size though... More

Probably one of the BEST BBQ places I've ever had and I know good BBQ. You stand in line, order, go sit, they call your number and you enjoy. GREAT VALUE for price paid. Tips: simple bacon hamburger was AWESOME. Take a sweater if your there later at night, they have a patio area with out space heaters (at least... More

The tri-tip sandwiches were delicious and had enough meat for two on them. If you order a basket of fries then it is enough for 4 people. The food was very good.

This place never fails to deliver delicious "fast food". It is Cambrias answer to the chain food restaurants, and every chain could take a lesson from these people. Their pork ribs are delicious and cooked right on the premises. Fun place.
