Have eaten here many times. Service is always good, and a good basic selection. Prices are fair, and the outside eating area is great.

Always enjoy my local burger place one of the best around. My favorite is the Hawaiian burger and I always get a free one on my birthday. Favorite place of the local high school scene, as well as mom and dad's. Help is friendly and efficient it's a great patio.

Lunchtime and looking in Atascadero for a good quick bite. Found Sylvester's and glad we did. Great grilled burgers and so many options it'll make your head spin. Beers of all kinds too. Casual tending toward fast food ambience. They also have steak salads and other sandwiches such as pastrami and other varieties. It's all good at Sylvester's.... and you... More

I've been here several times. The choices of burgers and sandwiches are good. Good people watching spot when you sit outside. Definitely a visit should be on your list.

This is the place for good old-fashioned burger, fries, and a shake (think all the possible goodies and sides to make it just they way you like).
