The good: Really good hamburger buns, and the house-made spread is pretty good. Also, the fries and onion rings were great. The not so good: The burger itself was a little too well done for my taste and they forgot to put cheese on it like I'd asked. And as for that spread, they were a bit stingy with it.... More

Great Place for shakes and Burgers. Plenty of options and actually had a lot more than just burgers. Even the chicken strips were good.

The first time I visited was after I passed this place on the way to a street fair and decided to stop in for lunch, it smelled great from outside. Went in and ordered a "smokin betty" burger. Didn't order anything else, portion size was reasonable. The burger was pretty good too. The second time I went with family, ordered... More

This isn't the cheapest place in town to take the family but the burgers were good. Everyone enjoyed their food and it wasn't terribly priced but could still be expensive if you're travelling with a large family. Great for a couple or small family.

Great food. Burgers are good sized and absolutely delicious. I had a specific craving for a burger here in healthy town and this totally hit the spot. They will serve it without bread bun if you would like, but, um, no...I am a purist. Cool decor

Ate lunch here with my daughters on a Friday afternoon. The service was quick, and the burgers were huge and well made. The produce on the burgers was so fresh it was obviously purchased that day. The dining area was a bit run down but very clean. They employees all had great attitudes and seemed to like their jobs. I... More

I love the choice of burgers: salmon, veggie, grass fed non-hormone beef, chicken and turkey. Wow what a concept. I had the grass fed beef burger. It was the most delicious ever. My friend thoroughly enjoyed her turkey burger. We also got a side of sweet potatoe fries that seemed to melt in our mouths. My husband raved about his... More

My husband and I went for a drive to Santa Cruz after the Christmas holiday and found this wonderful spot where we had just walked into on a whim. The Kona lager was delicious on the hot day. We enjoyed the popcorn shrimp for an appetizer while we contemplated the sandwich menu. He chose the BLT on sourdough and I... More

It was the best burger that I have had from a fast-food take out, All was great, including the bun. Glad I didn't order fries, had enoug trouble eating the burger with extra lettuce.

Diego, your customer services was awesome!! We called in our order on 08/21, you were attentive, clear and did not rush me on the phone. I was stoked that I was able to substitute a "beef" burger for a "turkey" burger on my Duke!! Our order was ready when we got there. Everything was super good. My only "gripe" would... More
