If you're looking for variety in a great burger this is the place to stop. Fun beach/surfer décor with a down to earth staff. Informal atmosphere. I would stop here again!

Patty melt and the ranch burger here were fantastic! Love the secret sauce as they call it. Great menu for kids but also kids could order off menu too.

Great location, grab a burger, fries and shake. Take it to go and sit on the beach or dock a couple blocks away. Friendly service too.
