“Burgers like Baby Boomers enjoyed as kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

One of the most popular fast food restaurants in Moreno Valley since the 1960s when it was the culinary highlight of the former unincorporated community of Sunnymead. This restaurant recalls a time when baby boomer kids in the family station wagon crammed down "California-style" burgers with sizzling French fries and all the trimmings.

Dining at Sunnymead Burgers is a trip down Nostalgia Lane. Even the street was once the former US Highway 60. Though not quite Route 66, old 60 was and is familiar to enthusiastic roadies and Sunnymead Burgers commemorates those days with monthly special events showcasing classic cars, snazzy imports and hot motorcycles. The business has been in the same family for about 50 years and is arguably one of the oldest still-operating eateries in Moreno Valley.

The food also reflects classic fare from the 50s and 60s. The huge burgers feature a perfect sesame seed bun, plenty of shredded lettuce, a nice patty and that mouth-watering, creamy, pink "Thousand Island" sauce that pleases the palates of so many baby boomers and their kids too! You will be drawn to a huge, inexpensive menu of all your old drive-in fast food delights in both American and Mexican categories. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served.

Don't let the unassuming decor or facilities scare you off... this is old school, small-town eating and their seating and service are very informal. All tables are outside, under a canopy. Never mind the traffic or that the entire building is likely "grandfathered"... just stay focused on the delicious food and charming atmosphere.

Bottom line: Go for the burgers, fries and shakes, taking your time to enjoy the nostalgic family-friendly atmosphere. This is one of the best fast-food places in town. I highly recommend Sunnymead Burgers for anyone from 8 to 80.
