Freshly ground burgers with lots of delicious toppings to choose from. Although it is adjacent to the tourist traffic, it's mostly locals who frequent the place. After a burger, or many, simply cross the street for a scenic Oceanside stroll to "walk it off".

It's hard to really explain this place. I guess awesome charbroiled burgers does it. The burgers are small but packed with flavor. The place is not fancy but once you eat one of those mini burguer you won't care about how the place looks. Make use you order 2 burgers as one won't fill you. I try to come here... More

A great little no frills hamburger joint. If you are looking for an inexpensive place and a great burger look no further. Nothing fancy about the place but it is clean, service is good, prices are cheap. What more could one ask for?

This is a small place if you sneeze you will miss it. The wait lines can be long and wait for food is responsible. The burgers are charbroiled small but nice and thick. The fries are fresh cut you can have regular fries or sweet potatoes fries. I hope you enjoyed the food as much as I did.

Great burgers. The meat is rolled into slightly smaller than a baseball sized ball instead of flat. Your choice of cheeses and served plain with condiments on the side. Has a nice barbecued flavor. Not BBQ sauce but cooked on a BBQ. This is probably the best food deal on the island. The burger looks small but is filling. Two... More

This places is where my parents used to go when they were in highschool. So its been open for over 50 years. The burgers are very traditional. Don't expect to eat your best burger. The place is run down but the food is pretty good. Portions are cheap but small.
