Went in for a quick lunch. The quality of the burger was good. Not very big, but still very much ok for me. I will certainly visit a Silvergreens again ... 9$ for burger+fries+drink

So nice ingredients. Really tasty. We got the Earth Burger and Santa Barbara Tri-Tip sandwich 😀 They should definitely make a chain restaurant.

Had great salads late Sunday lunchtime as a restorative break from shopping in the nearby mall.. our first time there, so the server was great at explaining the process and helping us choose our meals. The salads were great! That evening, we went looking for a suitable restaurant for supper, but found most rather sleepy and lacking atmosphere on a... More

Yum! We've been here before. But, for dinner, we really enjoyed the Mountain Climber (burger) and Stinky Pig Fries, as well as the small Kale and strawberry salad.
