Fast food, sit down burger joint. Burger is grilled, and seasoned nicely. I usually get the #2 (double char, fries, soda). This place is a bit small, so come off peak hours. Service is pretty quick. Best part is $1.00 ice cream cone! In-and-out has done serious competition.

A fast food burger place that offers a wide menu including burgers, salads and non beef options. Better than McDonalds and Carls Jr and on par with In'N Out.

Good burgers and vegan burgers with tasty fries! Salads are excellent and enough for a second meal! If you haven't tried their shakes your missing out. This is great for eating in or take out. This place gets full quick so get their early for lunch and dinner!

We were in a hurry and found the perfect place! Burgers sandwiches including veggie one, salads and fries oh my. Many choices to add on to your burger. They also have shakes and malts. Restaurant was clean and bright and the staff very helpful. Good handicapped parking and entrance and nice big bathroom for people with mobility issues.

The burgers come with grilled onions unless... More

My husband and I stopped in for the first time at the Solana Beach burger joint. It's always nice to notice how clean it is and not have to think about it.
