We had to visit on our visit to SoCal. A friend recommended this place while we visited OB. Stood in line for about 30 minutes (arrived in line at 11:15am). The interior flavor of this joint was unbelievable and all the wait staff epitomized the...More

Onion rings - amazing! Bacon burger- we asked for crispy bacon and were told all the bacon was crispy. Our daughter's was soft and mushy. It was pretty nasty. Overall- the burgers were a typical burger but nothing extraordinary. Don't go out of your way.

Great burgers and fries (which are actually wedges, and so delicious). Good onion rings too! I got a single bacon cheeseburger. Bacon is chopped and crispy, so good. Next time, I will order a mini bacon cheeseburger, I was too full to finish my fries!

Great burger, line was long, but the food was good. Laid back OB atmosphere. The prices have gone up since I visited last, but isn't that everwhere?
