The worst Hamburger ever. Overcooked . soggy bun. old veg. yuck yucky. It's close to the beach. So you can go throw up in the ocean afterwards. They do have beer so that's a plus. The fries were fine I guess. I ate about 2 bites of the burger. I love burgers. This was just about the worst one Ive... More

Ended up here somewhat by accident as our party of 14 could not find a place in Santa Cruz to accommodate our relatively large group for breakfast. Fortunately, this place open up at 11:am and they were ready to serve us as soon as the doors opened. Burgers were very good and cooked perfectly. Sweet potato fries also rocked. Need... More

Wanted a good, solid lunch after three days in Frisco. Trip Advisor informed us of the wonderfully good mom/pop burger joint just off the main path of our travels. We ducked in.....and whoa boy are we glad we did. GREAT burgers made fresh, with fresh veggies and great fries. One of THE best burgers I have had in a LONG... More

Had the Point garden with bacon, blue cheese, Nd grilled mushrooms...YuM! This place is not only fantastic, but the are the rare exception that remembers how to cook to temperature. Accompanied by the 1/2 and 1/2 fries and onion rings with a Turkish coffee shake; what could be better? Oh yeah, the local beers as well. :)

Sat outside and had a basic burger with avocado (so California!) and a root beer float. Perfect for a casual lunch with a new friend. Lots of choices (not all meat based), quick service, fun atmosphere. What's not to like?

They had a nice variety of items on their menu including a salmon burger, turkey and I believe a veggie burger. I went with the Basic Betty and the "regular" fries. Excellent food and good service.

Nice fresh ingredients, great taste and awesome service. This is one of those Santa Cruz places you can't miss. Oh and the fries are pretty good too...chill at this place... More
