Great service, great menu options

If you're not big on bread.. try a bareback burger. The wrap it all up in lettuce. My only suggestion or slight complaint is that it gets very messy as everything kind of slips off the lettuce, if it could be served on a plate with cutlery rather than half wrapped at least you could deal with the... read more

Betty's Burgers provides great burgers! The onion rings were crisp and not greasy, and the fries and shake my husband had were very good. The staff accommodated my request for a 1/3 pound patty on my Duke burger instead of 1/2 pound. The only drawback is the location - it does not allow for much parking. Otherwise - GREAT place!

We stopped here on our road trip south for lunch. Food was done very fast and was awesome - i had the vege burger, teen had chicken and hubby had meat. All in agreement that they tasted great.

We were visiting Santa Cruz & heard this place was somewhere we had to try. Really good burger & sweet potato fries are sooo good. Younger waitstaff more interested in gossiping than assisting customers. Not the best place for kids! More of a place for a date.

From the outside this place looks like a sit-down diner. Once you step inside you realize you are in an elevated fast food joint. You order up front at the counter, get your own drinks (unless you order alcohol), and seat yourself. You get a number (Carl's Jr. Style) and the staff brings your food to you at your table....

Management change has run this place into the ground! Stay away from all of their locations! All their best servers are gone!

Heard lots of hype about this place. Tried two different gourmet burgers, not at all memorable. Burgers, fries and 2 beers close to $30 for a "to go" type place. We haven't tried their mid-town Seabright location but for about the same money you could go to the Seabright Brewery.

The burgers are delicious and there is a good selection of varieties. This is a great place to eat with friends. Relaxed casual atmosphere, excellent food and good value.
