I have heard about the tasty burgers for months but since I was by the ocean, I decided to order the fish and chips. Big mistake. The fries were delicious but the fish was greasy and was half fish half greasy breeding. If I wasn't starving I would have thrown all the fish away. My friend ordered the burger and... More

I have been a couple time now. Last was over 3 years ago. I was able to visit area again and brought some co workers to this place. I was hoping that the quality was still impressive. IT WAS- in fact even better than I remembered. The scenic drive to the beach/camping area is filled with beautiful views. The beach... More

Or at least Santa Barbara County's Best. Well worth the lengthy wait. The trick is to order, walk around the beach for a while and then return to collect the moist juicy burger. Drippy with juice, it is a multi napkin meal!

A nice spot to get out near the ocean and enjoy a relaxing lunch. Road is a little difficult but who ever said life was always easy. I enjoyed the drive out although one must be patient because it requires careful driving. Food was good, atmosphere was wonderful even with a full parking lot and many 'campers' in their vehicles....

I heard about this place years ago but finally decided to make the drive out to Jaalam beach. The weather was great and the drive was very nice. We arrive before the rush at 10:45 AM and ordered our burgers and they were ready within 10 minutes. The burger was great especially the secret sauce. We will come here again... More

After turning off Hwy 1, it's 14 miles of windy roads to get to Jalama Beach. You can get a 15 minute pass to see the beach, but buying something from the store's menu will get you another hour. After that, it's $10/car. The burger, as everyone says, is great. Outdoor picnic seating, some with shade. Weekends must be crazy... More

A local recommended JBG, and we were immediately drawn to the story of Kobe beef, printed on the menu. so we ordered Kobe burgers. (There are at least six different kinds to choose from.) They were huge and excellent! Service was good. A unique dessert, worth trying (although I forgot the name) is their deep-fried cheesecake, available with chocolate or... More

Nice atmosphere, good menu; attentive wait staff, nice people, great "on the road" food. Great halfway stop between Central California and Santa Barbara; close to Jalama Beach...

I would love to have given the Jalama Beach Store a "five" if it weren't for the burned onion rings they served, which I should have sent back but didn't. The burger has a well-earned reputation of being wonderful, and it is! The patty is large, the lettuce, tomato and onions on it are fresh and delicious and the "secret... More
