Peanut shells on the floor and countless license plates on the wall - with the best burgers in town!

“Great Burgers”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

VERY rustic with roasted peanuts with shells on the floor. There's a wide variety of burgers that can meet all tastes. The atmosphere is what really makes the place.

“River City Cafe down to a creek”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

Not my favorite place for lunch or anytime eating. Kind of dirty (or maybe just old and dingy) with so so food that was not really prepared very well.

“Great burgers!”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

We always make it a point to eat at River City Cafe whenever we're in the area, as their burgers are great! My husband loves the huge onion rings, but I prefer the homemade french fries. The burgers are fresh and huge, but the chicken fingers are also good. The cole slaw is a little bland, but love everything else! You get free peanuts and can sweep the shells onto the floor, which adds to the funky atmosphere. Also, the walls are covered with graffiti and license plates from around the country. While a little on the expensive side for burgers, the service is great and it's one of our favorite restaurants!

“Love the food and atmosphere(on the beach)”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Love sitting where I can see the shore. Great seafood and fun. They are known for their burgers but I always go for seafood when at the beach. They have a fun atmosphere and a varied menu for everyone. Love their fried onion rings and zuchini.
