“Average Hamburger Place, not Quite the Hype”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

Have heard quite a lot about "Garlands" and the great hamburgers, finally decided to give them a try, small little area on the inside, but not to small. The burgers were good, maybe a little better than average, although much better than the chain joints. With all the hype had heard maybe was over expecting on the experience and taste. Thought their prices were a bit on the high side, and the overall quality was good, but did not live up to the hype, have had burgers just as good at a couple of other places in the Grover Beach / Arroyo Grande area. Would recommend if you are at the beach and looking for a close and quick place to get a good tasting burger instead of chain places like the golden arches, good tasting food like several other places.

“Average hamburger joint”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Not bad, but not consistent. The last time I ate there the burgers were rather dry. Nice variety of burgers available.

“Average little quickie dive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

My Wife took me here for a quick bite and it was quick but just an average quickie. The food was good but unexceptional. Lots of flavors for shakes though.

“Good fish and chips”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

I haven't tried the hambugers, but their fish and chips are really good. You used to be able to get a 1/2 order. The fried zuchinni is really good too!
