Casual restaurant for burgers and fries or fish and chips. Appreciate the local grass fed beef. Always juicy!

Lots of burger choices and other menu items. I got the fish and chips and for a small charge was able to upgrade the "chips" to sweet potato fries. Which were super. They were the thick crinkle cut version. The tartar sauce was chipotle which was an interesting twist and very tasty. The regular fries which my friend had were... More

I had the special of the month, the nacho burger. Good choice. My nose started to drool from jalapeños on the burger. The nacho cheese had the required runniness found with most of the burgers found at Sylvester's.

You can't go wrong with any of their hamburgers on the menu. They occasionally have specials which only add to the large selection. Very juicy, so grab plenty of napkins or just use your shirt to savor the taste of the burger all day long. You can't go wrong with a side trip from Montana de Oro state park.

This is a really nice family friendly restaurant. Prices are very reasonable. Service was friendly, wait time for food was also well within reason. Indoor and outdoor seating available.

We started going to Sylvester's since it started. The BEST burger in SLO county. Sloppy, great sauce. Fun place and lots of outdoor seating. Wear a wacky hat for your birthday picture and a free burger on your special day. You will need to take a bath after eating one their burgers,

Was recommended by our Airbnb host as the best burger in the county. A big boast but it was very good and the service was great! Would go again if we were staying longer
