Our family of three enjoyed burgers at this down to earth informal burger joint last night. The burger menu is ample offering many combinations and a homegrown special sauce. All were good. Service was efficient. Indoor and outdoor seating are available. Recommended if you are jonesing for a good burger in Atascadero.

It's not super expensive, so its a fine place to stop for an average burger in Atascadero. I will say... More

Sylvester's has some of the best burgers! Their variety can't be beat. You cannot eat a burger without multiple napkins! They are packed full of a variety of choices! Once you try one you will be back! Fun, casual atmosphere.
