“Great smoothies”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Have visited twice, had chicken avocado sandwich w smoothie combo. Juicy and flavorful chicken, great bread, so so fries. Server Brittany was informative and friendly. Restaurant has a very laid back vibe!!

“Decent Burgers...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

The burgers were really good. The fries were like they had been sitting in a vat of grease for a couple of hours. Service was slow or rather getting our food took a long time. The waitress took an order for a couple of other tables just before taking ours. The first table was finished eating and had left before we got our burgers and soggy fries. So sorry to say, won't be back.

“Average Fries Below Average Burgers”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

This place uses local beef, which really just doesn't taste very good compared to US beef, and the fries are only so-so. My gf liked the vegie burger, though.

“Great, fresh smoothies and yummy burger combinations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

We've only been once, but had a great experience. My boyfriend can't stop talking about this place. The food was good and the service was friendly. The only negative was that the buns were way too big for the burgers. Other than that, it was totally yummy!

“Super burgers for a super price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

I love this place, they do the best smoothies and often have a really great lunch/dinner meal including a burger, fries and a smoothie. And in walking distance from the beach, who can complain? :)
