Awesome big bopper burger on a scrumptious roll. But do not get the Mexican food. My sons had a California burrito which really was a bizarre version poorly wrapped in a square with the guacamole on the outside. A total mess. Stick with the burgers!

Not sure why it took so long for two milk shakes, but they were excellent. The food look good, but we had just finished dinner.

If you're looking for something very casual, then look no further. The Bopper has great burgers and onion rings. It's a no frills place, but if you've got a hankering for a good burger, fries, etc., then this place is for you.

I got the big bopper, and the bun it came on was pretty hard. The fries and shake that I got were amazing, and the burger was pretty good other than the bun. I don't think I'd eat here again considering how much I paid...More

Good value and everything tasted great - huge portions! We went here because of reviews but weren't expecting it to be so good. The outdoor seating is clean but old.

Tasty tri-tip tacos with a good homemade salsa. Onion rings were hot & crispy. Who cares if the old place needs some paint. Sat outside and enjoyed my quick bite and the sunshine.

The burgers and fries are better than average (although expensive), the Mexican food is poor quality, but they have the best chocolate shakes within 100 miles! Get a large. I know, it's huge, but the calories are worth it!!
