I have lived in Santa Cruz over 25 years and it's taken me too long to try out Betty Burgers. I have always heard good things, but I just don't go out for burgers very often. There are just too many great Taquerias here.... :)

But, I was talked into trying out this landmark Santa Cruz burger restaurant last night, and I was not disappointed at all and it lived up to my high expectations from what others have said over the years.

I had a burger that had Balsamic grilled onions, smokey cheddar cheese and bacon. Boy was it yummy. Everything was fresh, and the combination of a great patty, bun and other ingredients were all I could wish for in a burger. We agreed we all liked our Betty Burgers much better than the new Five Guys Burgers in town.

And I have to give a compliment to the staff too. They were very friendly and helpful. The burgers and fries were delivered quickly and came out hot and tasty. They even had beer on tap which was a great plus for me, because I just don't drink soda. Top marks here for great service and great food! I will definitely be back soon.....

The burger was dry and overdone (though I asked for medium rare). Other than that, there was nothing at all special about it. Anything other than a basic burger runs $8.50 to $10, and that's just for a burger, with cheese or other toppings extra.
The fries were skinny and soaked with oil. And you must pay extra for them @ $2 for basic ones and up to 5 bucks for a small basket of sweet potato fries.
Service was friendly, though. But I came for a rocking good burger.
Better yet, try Burger on the westside (Mission and Bay) or the one in Aptos for a juicy specialty burger - with fries - for ~$8. And Burger has loads of brews - on tap - to select from.

Been to Betty's twice while I was in Santa Cruz. Both visits they nailed the burger. Juicy patty, the bun was hot as well not like in other places. Sweet potato fries were very delicious. Keep up the good work.

Good burgers and great French fries, but the best thing is their chocolate shakes. They are very chocolatey and worth every calorie!
