Best burger in Lincoln City!

What a surprise! Walked into this little eclectic cafe sitting unobtrusively behind a couple of painted truck tires, going into Lincoln City, Oregon from the South. Second signal light. What a happy, friendly cafe. Smiles and down-home attitudes are everywhere. Immediate service and seating... read more

Yes, the burgers were amazing; they use fresh beef every day and the fries are good as well. But, what stands out the most is the incredible customer service that you just don't find. Anywhere!! The owner made us feel welcome from the start, gave our daughter money to play pinball with, AND gave her a free t-shirt as well.... More

Burgers the way they are meant to be made. Each patty is caramelized on the edges, but still juicy and full of flavor. The opposite of the huge meatloaf burgers places peddle under the notion bigger is better. Great fresh cut fries and bargain priced.

Wow! Did we hit the jackpot for lunch! Grass fed beef that hasn't been frozen, homemade French fries. Staff extraordinarily helpful and friendly. They were incredibly busy when we got there, but it was a well oiled machine, and we were surprised by the speed of the service. The menu choices were limited, however, what they do..... They do very... More

We stopped in here for lunch. Kids all had the 101 and mom and dad had the 202. Fries are hot, fresh and delicious. Owner was friendly and helpful. We sat outside on the patio and enjoyed the sunny weather. Kids had fun playing the pinball machines and decorating the tires while we waited for the food to be prepared.... More

Very casual, read the menu on the wall, the guy talks fast and doesn't offer all options. If you don't want everything on your burger Be Clear, he doesn't listen that we'll either. They let kids paint on tires under tables, walls ect.. fun atmosphere, great fries, great burger when they get it right! Picky people beware!
