This drive up has been in Aptos for many many years and sells a surprisingly diverse menu of foods. It's reminiscent of a 50's burger hop and is located just before the entrance to Seacliff beach (with the cement ship) making it a great place to pull in and grab a bite either on your way into the beach or...

If you are within 20 miles of this place, get off your butt and go get a burger, fries and a coke. I drive all over the country for my job and I have maybe 3 joints I will not pass up if I'm close and its lunch time. This is one of them. It's not fancy, nothing inventive here.... More

Skip the chain store. Great burger and fries. When ever I'm near here at lunch I stop by for a baccon cheese burger. Friendly fast service and the food is great.

A visit here is like stepping ack into the 60's or 70's with both decor and menu. When's the last time you ordered a tuna sandwich at a drive-in? A great option to today's fast food.

We stopped here on the way to Monterey. The place was very busy with even the state troopers eating here. The place is a classic outdoor diner from the 50s. The food was excellent just like I remember from then. My friend had the chicken burger and I had the calamari and soft serve ice cream cone. We enjoyed it... More

Just a block from Seacliff state beach in Aptos California this place has all of the traditional drive in foods. My taste runs to the burger which although not spectacular was plenty satisfying for a hungry beach goer. My wife was overjoyed to see they also had corndogs which as far as we could tell they fried right there and... More

A traditional American diner with amazing milk shakes. Pop in if you are driving along Highway 1 you will not be disappointing.

Amazing little burger place! I liked the cheeseburger, French fries, and soft served ice cream. Great onion rings too. Fun for families. Only downside is lack of veggie options (we have a vegetarian in our family) but that is not their focus. :)

A change of pace from chain burger places. I appreciate that it is family owned an operated. The burgers are okay and breakfast is tasty.
