We only ate there once, but will never eat there again. Knock out PIZZA just a few doors down is amazing though...pizza by the slice and several different options. Skip the burger, go to Knock out Pizza and say hi to Kyle and tell him the family who moved to Oregon sent you!

Kidds running the place, and it is very noisy as well as slow and poor service. Our food was dropped at us. the burgers were greasy and poorly put togather.

The decor was not great. Kind of run down looking. But the burgers were really good. The service was friendly.

Waited close to 40 minutes for 2 burgers and fries. And then got the wrong burger... And I NEVER complain about service... Hope they were having an off day.

We've been here a few times and always enjoy it. Burgers are fresh and high quality meat. I enjoy the buns as well. Staff is nice and often times fun and interactive. Small place but a nice stop in Carlsbad.

If you want a reasonably priced and tasty burger, this is the place. The interior is a bit worn and could use a refresh, but that doesn't impact the quality and taste of the food..

we asked for medium rare burger & it was cooked just right. the fries were crispy on the out side & soft on the inside. We like rustic so the site was just right.

The delicious aroma of angus beef and onions drew us in to this place last January and we returned on a visit in March. The burgers are scrumptious. Just wish the place was spruced up with a bit more attention to decor and cleanliness.

Thank Marcia G
