“Home of the educated hamburger”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

The burgers are excellent and so are the breakfasts. The portions are generous and I'd recommend you split the order of fries. The place is in the corner of a strip mall and not on a main street but well worth finding. A locals favorite.

“Great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

I ate here once and was very impressed. It is clean, the staff is friendly and fast, and the food is great. Enjoy. it isn't an accident that this place is in business. U can't see the restaurant from the Main Street, so it is word of mouth that helps this place flourish.

“Support to Tip-A-Lion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

Attended the annual Tip-A-Lion scholarship fundraiser this evening. The place was absolutely packed but the service and food quality remained excellent. Codie and his crew, supplemented by the Vandenberg Village Lions club members stayed on top of all the orders. Enjoyed the club sandwich and onion rings, best in won. The burgers go from A to Z and all are excellent.

“ABCDEFG”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

This place makes the best burgers around. Their menu goes down the alphabet and each burger is given a letter of the alphabet, rather than a name. Very original. If they don't have what you want on the menu, they will make it "custom ordered." Reasonable and yummy. What more could you want?
