“Loved this place!”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

As we pulled up , i sighed...on the big street in Santa Barbara..food snob , I am..And i was very happy, extremely happy with the food.
We ordered the tempura green beans, which were in a light batter, hardly any at all, but very flavorful...usually, there is so much dough, and this was perfect...and served with Macroana Almonds..wow, what a touch.
Had a taco salad, very nice..
Buffalo burger, served with THICK onion rings and jalapeno sauce on it..TASTY.
A grass fed beef burger, topped with the best , thick bacon, and deep fried tiny onions..YUM and served with sweet potato fries, that had cinnamon, and a drizzle of maple syrup..OUTSTANDING..
And i had grilled Mahi Mahi fish tacos, with cole slaw , mango salsa, and they were soooo good. Very lightly blackening seasoning ( was worried at first...don't really like blackening seasoning, but this was perfect) and was just a perfect dinner.
fabulous glass of cabernet..Justin, and the boys had many different beers. Everyone enjoyed the experience very much, great service, as well.

“The memory of the burger will stay with you”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

The burgers are so good that you recall the taste days and weeks after eating there. It's one of "the" places to go in Santa Barbara. Outstanding selection of beers - excellent food - excellent service. Enjoy the bustling scene!

Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

Delicious, creative burgers, salads and more with craft ales, outstanding service, and a warm casual upbeat vibe. This has become our favorite place when we visit Santa Barbara.

“Cheeseburger in Paradise!”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

This is a busy place but even on a Sunday we were seated (outdoors) and served quickly. With all the food choices, there's something for every taste. Love that the outdoor seating isn't totally apart from the rest of the restaurant. We each ordered a different burger, mine was mushroom & blue cheese. The bun looked housemade but was just a little greasy. The fries were excellent and service friendly. Definitely will go back.

“Best burger I ever ate”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

I had the original with sautéed mushrooms and was in awe. I loved this burger. Great beer selection too. Had a sampler of five brews I never had before. Great way to try new beers. I will definitely be back.
