“Great Burger!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Great place in Lompoc. Easy to find on main street and serves the famous Jalama burger without going to Jalama beach (it's closed in winter we found out). Burger was great and homemade chips were wonderful. Great atmosphere for burgers. Went with two others and they enjoyed their burgers as well. Recommend the grilled asparagus, onion rings, and Jalama Burger!

“Best Grill in Lompoc”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

My family absolutely loves this place. Kobe Beef Hamburgers, fresh fish, awesome chili, amazing breakfasts ... topped off by amazing service. You will not go wrong choosing Jalama Beach. However, after you come here you may not want to go anywhere else. Truly an enjoyable experience, each and every time.

“Do Not Skip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

This is a funky little cafe/general store out at Jalama Beach that serves great food. The Jalama Burger is a speciality. They also carry their own wine label which is good.

“Good food with a ocean view.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Buy your drinks before you get to the place. It cost $10 to get into the park. the food was reasonalble. The gas lines were being worked on. Do not wear your good shoes. We ruined our shoes on beach tar. There were shells and rocks to look at. I took a couchsurfer from Columbia there. We watched the sea gulls beg outside while we watched inside. looked like a good place to have a motor home. There are cabins you can rent. a little spendy. It is a nice tristy drive through the mts.
