“OMG-YES”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

The staff is fantastic! They take the time to talk with you while not ignoring others. The food is fantastic and prices are great as well. Both indoor and outdoor seating available. Hours are fantastic!Parking lot is a bit small, but oh well....

“Good burgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Nice place for a good burger feast. I wish I had known their regular burger came loaded with sauce. I do not like a wet burger and it did not state on the menu that it would come that way. The burger itself was good. Also, the black and bleu burger was outstanding. The garlic fries come with garlic on top of them, not seasoned with garlic for those of you who would like to know. We would return.

“Best Burgers in the County”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

You want a regular hamburger? They got it. You want a Buffalo burger? They got it. You want a fresh grain fed burger from the Hearst Ranch? They go it. Want an Elk Burger? They got it. Want a Turkey Burger? They got it. Vegetarian? They got it! In short if you want a fantastic burger you have no excuses cause they got it. Everything is great. Had the chocolate Sunday. They even bring you the metal cup like they did in the old days with the rest of the milk shake. Onion rings are home made, crunchy and tasty. I have been here several times and the food is always the best. But remember, this is not a fancy restaurant. It is a burger joint. But for what it does it does better than anywhere else I have been.

“Lots of Food...!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Based on Tripadvisor reviews, we stopped at Sylvester's for lunch on a recent trip up the coast.

Those of you who have mentioned "lots of food" were not kidding...!! I had a 1/2 pounder with mushrooms. My wife ordered the burger with bacon and bleu cheese. Personally, I think that I got the best deal (mushroom burger), but both were VERY good and cooked to order..!!

We also shared an order of onion rings. They were EXCELLENT...best we have ever had. I think they were coated in a tempura-like batter because the onion rings were light and delicious

Although the burger was not THE best burger I have ever had, it's right up there with the best, and..the price point is excellent.

Recommend...!!

“Really great burgers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

Best burgers around!!! Onion rings are terrific and they'll do a combination of fries and rings too. "Secret sauce" is way too yummy!
