The burgers and chips were great! What made it even better was the service that we received - now as Aussies, this is when we don't mind tipping at all!

Burger was OK but not worth the price. A tip was expected even though it was a fast food experience.

...which is no small accomplishment on this stretch of Valencia. Food is adequate, environment is self-service, rough and ready. Pleasant people, nice prices. Beyond that, there's not much to be said about a humble turkey burger.

I've been coming here since the joint opened and I can honestly say that the quality and taste has been consistent.... when I say medium rare, I get medium rare! And the grilled onions are always done to perfection! I send all my people here when they crave a burger.

This was more like a slightly upscale McDonalds than the hand made patties I'm used to when I opt for a burger (ala GBK) Sweet potato fries were the only saving grace. Ignored by 2 members of staff before being served..I left full but not satisfied. I won't be returning.

I happen to come across the restaurant when my first two choices were either missing or there was a long wait for a table. The decor was very cool, a nice retro 50 esque look, without being too over the top. The burger and fries were good, the only draw back, I found, was that the menu was rather limited... More

It's a burger joint. And it's worthy of the hype. It's exactly what you expect when you're looking for a - to repeat - burger joint. A pornographic burger, delivered from the hands of someone you can see it has made a million burgers in his life. I loved it.

Ok. It aint the end all be all of burgers but for the money (considering the location) it wasnt bad. A decent sized burger cooked to order with your choice of cheese. The fries were good (not great) as well - thick, with the skins left on. The place had a 50's - 60's dinner kinda vibe going on. It... More

From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighborhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the locals do by heading to Mission Dolores Park, buy some ice cream, and savor one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the country.
