If you want to combine a dazzling, scenic beach scene with some good food, the Jalama Beach Store is the place to go! Located 14 miles off CA 1 on the way to Lompoc, the Jalama Beach Store serves up some pretty tasty food. Last weekend I ordered the trusty Jalama burger and my girlfriend selected the pastrami. The pastrami was nothing to write home about-small portion of meat on a standard sandwich roll, but I don't think people come here for pastrami!
The Jalama burger delivered the goods....shredded lettuce, tomato, pickles and a good sauce as well! In all, one of the better burgers I've eaten here in So Cal! As a side note, the fries where quite tasty as well. Crispy shoe=string style, lightly salted and seasoned, they were a perfect complement to the burger and pastrami. In addition, even though the tiny cafe was quite busy, the person taking the order was quite friendly as were other employees who were working hard to get the food out.
The total cost for our meal was about $18. Beautiful scenery, good food, and well worth a visit while you are up on the Central Coast! Enjoy your visit to scenic Jalama Beach, and enjoy some tasy food too!
One additional note: as other reviewers have noted, once you are at the guard shack, let the attendant know you are here just to eat. He will waive the $10 fee to get in.
