Showed up with 15 people at 2pm and got space overlooking the beach. All the food was as we expected, it came fast and hot and filled us up. Salads and burgers and burritos were all delicious. French fries are large. Kids had fun, parents had fun too.

Everything is great here. Get there early because there will be a line. Worth the wait for breakfast or lunch.

I see why the line goes out the door everyday. The food was tasty and the portions were big! I wished they opened a little earlier though!

I had a burrito #4 (egg, ham, cheese, green peppers and onions) for only $5.99 and the burrito was larger than a burrito at Chipotle! The food tasted great and the location is perfect. A must for those staying in PB.
