Ordered a cheeseburger and fried, not complicated. The burger was awesome, fries were equally tasty, it wasn't a long wait and it's very close to the beach.

This tiny little kitchen is just a block off the beach and makes tasty burgers and fries to order. Not much seating room but its the kind of food you can just grab and eat on the run

Ate lunch here while waiting for our Kayak tour to start. Had a great bacon cheeseburger and fries. And the shakes, while I didn't have one, all the people around us were raving about them. Good food at a good price.

If you are in La Jolla shores, difficult to find a place to eat on a budget. This is the place. The food is not great, but definitely good value for what you get.

We ate here several times. It was affordable and great for a burger joint. Our kids (13 and 8) had never had gyros before and they went back a second time later in our week.

The service was very fast, friendly and the cheeseburger was delicious. I am sort of a french fry snob and LOVED their french fries. Will definitely be back!

The burger and milk shake were good but the fries were so so. The service was good. Kind of like an old fashioned burger joint. We didn't try the ice cream but we heard that it is quite good.

Old fashioned burger shack, with the menu up on the wall. Good selection of menu items, considering. Service is basic but friendly. Food's well prepared and good quality. It's overpriced but hey, it's La Jolla.

After a good walk along La Jolla Shores or another amazing surf session in crystal clear Pacific this is the place to stroll over to and get a turkey sandwhich or a burger and an ice cream.
