We go there when we're really hungry and in a hurry. The drinks are very good and the food is very tasty. I like the hamburgers. They have a moderately large menu with a good variety.

Stopped here while touring the area. Glad we did. Our party of 6 stopped for lunch and everyone enjoyed the experience. Most had burgers, but one of us was on a strict gluten free diet. They were handled extremely well. Go for the burger of your choice, beef and turkey were both well prepared.

We had a large group that went in for lunch, and had a reasonably short wait. The service could not have been batter and the food was quite good. I don't think that there was a single area that I could ask for more. I loved going here and would happily return.

Stopped in to get a couple burgers to go. Nice menu, nice people. We ordered two of their cheeseburgers with fries and one shake. We were offered a complimentary drink while we waited (we just wanted water) but it never materialized. No biggie. Now, we understand things are a little more costly in CA, but to pay nearly $35 for... More

We go here fairly often and the food and service are pretty consistently good. This location is very popular and you can often see lots of people waiting to get in. My husband and I often order a hamburger and bowl of Chicken Tortilla soup and we share. They have one of the best Chicken Tortilla soups around. Their hamburgers... More

Pricey and noisy. Probably better choice unless you want one of their specials. Management made little effort to calm the out of control customers who were have a kids party. Probably not a return trip

While a chain restaurant, we have never been disappointed with the food or service at this location. We had a great dinner with the spinach dip appetizer and the turkey burger. We arrive early to get a table since it gets very busy after 5-5:30.
