went in this extremely scruffy place with low expectations and was blown away by the quality of the food. The place wasnt even that clean as a kid had obviously thrown chips around where we were sitting but the burgers were to die for. I also like the happy servers , great place ......well done. If I take into account... More

The best tasting burger in all of Southern California, this small hole in the wall is an incredible gem. It's a little more expensive but worth every dime.

Just steps from North Beach in San Clemente is a VERY tasty burger!! A lil bit of a dive but really delicious burger served hot and fast - even though they were pretty busy. Fresh beef (nothing frozen about it) and fresh bun .... Looked Iike a good variety of craft beer on tap --- and some good bottles soda.

This place was recommended to us by a docent at the Surf Museum and since it was so close to our Hotel we decided to check it out. The parking and the restaurant eating space are very small. The burger however is not, not at all! When ordering you tell them if you want beef, chicken or veggie to name... More

The Rider's Club is a very interesting place. Tight parking, very sparse decor. Just a bunch of guys behind the counter, cooking their butts off and customers chowing down. We didn't know the system so we went outside and sat a a table. A guy came and told us that you have to order at the counter. The menu is... More

Very good burger with the perfect bun! You can tell they use high quality ingredients. The only thing that could be improved is the side.... The chips they serve are just whatever. I would love if they made a homemade fry.

The burgers are great. They ground their own chuck roast in house. The carnitas sandwich is "out of this world" good. They rotate their draft beers weekly and always have a good selection. Depending on the time, the place be packed and parking is limited. Their is street parking in the back so just be cognizant of that.

Over rated burger joint with poor parking, indifferent staff, but the burger, while tasty and messy, was good. Frys would compliment the burger, chips do not for the price.

This place is what a person meant when he said greasy spoon. And I mean that in a good way. You need at least five napkins to eat the great burgers served here
