Hey seriously this place serves up a great char broiled burger with fries at very reasonable prices. Downtown Santa Cruz off Lincoln Street. Real popular with the locals. Try it...I think you will like it.

Burgers and sandwiches. There is no better burger in the 831. Solid salads, great milk shakes and a friendly no attitude staff.

From the reviews I read I thought these burgers would be amazing but they were just ok. There's almost no room to sit down and if it's even close to busy you might have to pay to park down the street.

We just chanced upon this. Gray little find. Had the 1/3 pounder chipotle burger. Very tasty. Slightly on the pricey side. Would go back for just the burger.

I didn't have a burger, but I tried the chicken sandwich and it was very tasty! I've heard the burgers and really good, I'm looking forward to coming back soon and trying one.

A good place to visit. Doesn't look like much, but they are known for their burgers. If you go on a Wednesday...it is right across from the farmers market, so, can visit that also.

This place has been the standard for cheese burgers for years. Always good always consistent. The menu is not fancy or complicated just a great place for lunch.

I looked online for the best burgers in Santa Cruz and decided on trying Jack's and Surfrider. Surfrider is one of the best cheeseburgers I have ever had and my brother agreed. Jack's was just a basic cheeseburger. Good but not great. Average french fries.
