It's a spot mostly for locals. It's little more than a hole in the wall so probably most tourists would miss it. The hamburgers are super and the chicken salad is not to be missed. They serve craft beer but not a lot of selection....More

This is a very small establishment and the parking is terrible. But if you want a super hamburger this is your spot.

This is a fantastic place for fresh gourmet burgers. The burgers are so fresh and juicy, they melt in your mouth.

Gourmet burgers you can't beat at a family owned and operated restaurant. Just a short walk up the road from the North Beach Amtrak station and the Beach Trail.

Don't judge a dog....This place is basically a shack and not a lot of money has been spent on the interior either, but their burgers are delicious and the service fast and friendly so don't be put off by the exterior. Parking on the street.

The food here is amazing. Probably one of the best burgers I have ever had, and my whole family loves it here. There isn't any french fries, but the great chips that they give you instead make up for it. I recommend it to ANYONE!

Nice little place not too far from the main road. They have a good selection of draught beer, a good IPA and German Weiss. I really like the hamburger that I had as it was tasty and very juicy

I guess I'm used to a more gourmet style burger, but I would even have preferred fast food to this place. The burger was salty, salty, salty!! And no fries? Who would separate the burger from her fries? Unheard of. The bacon was overdone and...More
