This is pretty much exactly what you would expect from an upscale fast food burger joint. Great burgers, lots of add-ons, great fries, and even draft local beer.

The only reason it's not fine stars is because behind the scenes it's dirty. It has the passed inspection sign, but we were confident it would not pass CA inspection.

My first hint this wasn't your typical burger joint was when they asked how I wanted it done. I said well-done, but I think next time I'll go for medium. Even well done, it was nice and juicy like a well made home cooked one, with fresh butter lettuce, local tomato, and thin onion and pickles. The bun was soft and light. I also had the fries - thin cut and crispy with aoli sauce and a refreshing lemonade.
I'd definitely recommend it.

There is something about travel. You try all of the local cuisine but then all you want is a BURGER! This is the PLACE for that must-have burger. There are a number of burger specialties on the menu but they also offer your basic classic. Get your burger fix here.
