I had the spicy jalapeño burger and my brother had the regular jalapeño burger, the difference being the habanero sauce added to the spicy version. Both were tasty, the meat fresh and perfectly cooked. We split a salad and a basket of the beer battered...More

After a mid-day of visiting Apple Hill orchards, we drove up to Pollock Pines, since the Burger Barn was well-reviewed. We'd probably not do that again. The moment we walked in, the small dining area (8-10 tables) hit us with a smell of fried food....More

Dropped in this evening, famished, and filled up on crispy onion rings, a solid burger, and a blended soda float. Is it 5 star Michelin dining? No. However, if you're looking for a solid dinner, here's a good place.

While the staff are nice enough, sometimes it's not enough to keep you coming back, if though you want to keep giving them chances. The food is usually extra greasy, even for a burger place, the onion rings way over-crisped every time and the milkshakes...More

Sorry to here the food was over cooked. Do you happen to remember what day you were there. If my cook is over cooking the food it needs to be addressed, It is hard to correct something that I don't no about until reading it...More

I like this place because you can make your burger as big or small as you want. Different kinds of fries, GF options, and according to my grandkids the best milkshakes. Nice little local place to have lunch.
