My family and I stopped in for lunch after hiking Valencia Peak in the morning and we were hungry! After reading the many hamburger choices on the menu board outside, we were even hungrier. We each picked a different burger depending on our particular tastes and no one was disappointed. They were fantastic. The kids shared a strawberry milkshake which... More

For a quick stop and a very very good burger! Good fries too. Like I said...a quick stop, almost like a fast food but not quite. The important thing is the burgers are excellent!

It's not the cheapest hamburger you'll get, but it's going to be one of the best. I eat here more than I bet my doctor would recommend, but it's very good and the shakes are excellent too. Now that they accept credit/debit cards I can go when I don't remember to get cash before I load up the kids.

Sylvester's is kind of a "hole in the wall" burger joint, but the food is great. They have an awesome selection, including wild game. We went there with a party of 10, and had no trouble finding seating, and had an enjoyable experience.

Like the gas station place up the street better. Sylvesters is pretentious. You have to have a good basic burger upon which to build. They don't have it. The special sauce, isn't. If you are into the "everything sweet" trendy burger you will like it. If you want an old time good burger this ain't it.

If you get the Hana burger, get tons of napkins. Delicious!!! They have a very good clam chowder, also. Oh, and you can sit inside or outside. If it's your birthday you get s free burger.

If you love good burgers, Sylvesters is the place to be if you're in Los Osos area. Although I've had much better burgers in my day, Sylvesters is still a safe choice that is good quality, offers lots of options (even buffalo and elf meat) and has a fun vibe to the restaurant. I have never had a burger I... More

Craving a big and juicy burger? Come here and you won't be disappointed! Sylvester's has delicious food and huge portions. Not in the mood for a burger? No worries because they also have sandwiches and hot dogs, not to mention a cute kids menu. If you find yourself hungry and in Los Osos, try Sylvester's Burgers!
