I rode the motorcycle out to Jalama Beach for lunch because I had heard the burgers were fantastic. First off, this place is inside a park, so if you're going to spend the day here they charge $10 per car to enter. However, when we told the attendant we were just there for lunch, we received a 1 hour parking... More

The staff was very attentive without being overwhelming. The checked on us just the right amount. They were quick with refills on drinks. Food was delicious. I had the pancakes which were good sized. The home fries were also yummy. Would definitely eat here if I'm ever in Lompoc again.

One of the better vegan burgers I've had. Crisp, not soggy. Plenty of lettuce, tomato, etc on the bun. You order at the counter and then wait 10-15 minutes on New Years Eve. We sat on a picnic table over looking the surf. Sweet

We drove all the way from Santa Barbara for the view of the rolling hills (sorry the area is so dry and needs rain!) and the burgers. The beef and fixings did not disappoint. Four of us luckily one order of shared fries and one of rings but we all managed to eat every morsel of the burger. Good area... More

Our newly reformed "Fun Bugs of Santa Maria" took a road trip last weekend to Jalama Beach for lunch. Just fourteen beautiful miles from Highway 1, you'll find some wonderful tasting hamburgers among other thing at this tasty beach grill. The campground next to this diner is a special place also. It's normally packed full, but you can call for... More

We rented a cabin at Jalama Beach and wanting this to be a relaxing trip - no cooking, no set schedule, the only food item we brought on our trip was coffee. We decided to take our meals at the Jalama Grill. We started with the Jalama Burger - everything it promises to be. After that lunch, we were too... More

This little gem on the beach far from every where else in the world. It's a campground on your own little private beach shared with only your neighbors in the next site. But it's a fun drive to go to the beach and have a great burger. You will wait 45 minutes for your order and scarf it down in... More

Delicious fresh food, served hot and plenty of it. Quirky fun atmosphere. The best onion rings. Picinic Tables inside a glassed in eating area keeps the sand out of your food. Nothing fancy just a great burger place.

I heard about a burger at Jalama Beach that was big and good. It's a ways out there, but well worth the beautiful drive to the isolated campground and general store. The general store has a grill that makes a big and good burger. The burger comes with fries, so may fries, that I could not finish them. There is... More
