This little yellow burger trailer cranks out some awesome burgers! It's not fast food. It's just like making burgers at home. The cook has this DOWN. That's real ground beef. No fillers that I could detect. I went on a Sunday afternoon along with 2 other friends and we all had the bacon cheese burger with grilled onions. It also came with lettuce, pickle slices, a tomato slice, and sauce. (Jalapeños on request). It was so good it got all over me. The fries were real and cooked perfectly. With a 12 oz can of soda pop the total was about $9.25. Be sure to wear a good jacket because the wind in Charleston whips around pretty well. There is a small cottage beside the cooking area to eat indoors. But it only has one table for 2, and one table for 3. The tables are usually taken. There are 3 or 4 other picnic tables nearby that will seat 6 easy, 8 if you squeeze in. The who runs the place is nice.

Go for it. Where else are you gonna get a burger this good for the price?

Funky little food cart in the fishing boat basin. We had their fish and chips which were the best we have ever had in the US. Absolutely fresh fish (from the fishing boats a football field away) and thin, crispy fries. Did not try their tartar sauce, but the cocktail sauce needs more horseradish.

They also have biscuits & gravy, chicken fried steak and waffles for breakfast. Hamburgers, chicken fried steak sandwiches, dogs and fresh oyster sandwiches for lunch.

Prices max out about $10. Be prepared to wait while your food is cooked fresh (10 minutes or so).

We will definitely go back each time we go to the Oregon coast.
