Quick and tasty in La Jolla

Great place to grab a quick bite - not much interior seating, and they really liked to shout out my number when it took me a second to get to the counter :D but the food was fresh and tasty!

The food was okay, but not the type of place you would tell people they had to go to, or even should go to. If you are looking for a simple quick bite, it is fine. Expect to pay $10-$15 per person for a burger, frys and small drink (no refills). The 2 "tables" outside are nice for 1 1/2... More

The famous Jeff's Burger, available in many versions, is the staple of the restaurant, but there are other offerings and their fries are good. I've had the burger many times. There are a few selections of ice cream cones for taking on the way out. It's been here forever, so they must be doing something right. Along with the Mexican... More

The food was good and quick. The restroom was trashed and it was too popular (crowded) for it's own good.

After 3 hours kayaking and snorkeling we were directed to Jeff's and were not disappointed. The burgers were tasty and the combo meals satisfied our need for food. Extra avocado on my burger was really appreciated. Not flash but tasty and friendly people

Found this place while walking around La Jolla. In our group we had a BLT, Grilled Cheese and a burger and they were all great. Cool pictures of San Diego on the walls too!! If your looking for a good bite to eat near the shore this is it.

Great homemade burgers! Prices were good and the food very tasty! It's a funky little place that could use some updating but then again, I like this kind of place.

Surprisingly slow service once we ordered. The burger was OK. The place is conveniently located and open to the street.
