Late lunch at Mad Madeline’s.

Good place to sit and people watch on a Saturday afternoon.

Unfortunately, there I start to lose enthusiasm.... the single toilet should be avoided, the portions simply too large (the sampler) and my chilli dog was a great disappointment. You will be drinking out of plastic glasses and eating with plastic cutlery off of styrofoam plates - admittedly, some of these items you could find out before you sit down. Staff were mixed bunch - some friendly, others distant.

Maybe the burgers are better - as claimed - and our visit was a perfect storm of poor choices and a bad day at the grill - but we are unlikely to revisit - lots of other establishments on the Main Street to try instead.

There are so many great places in old town Temecula it is hard to choose which one is the best. If you want a burger or BBQ, Mad Madeline's will not disappoint. The menu is huge, and there are various sizes of burgers from which to choose--all with a variety of toppings. The food was good and prepared to order (do you know how hard it is to get a medium rare hamburger?) The cook got it right and it was delicious. Fries were crisp and hot. This is not a fancy place, the table clothes are red checked and the setting is kind of a covered patio. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal there. We were not rushed and refills were free.

Hubbie’s burger looked good, but was missing bacon that he had requested. My fish was too much breading and not enough fish. It was oily so I peeled the heavy crust off. Fries were excellent. Hostess was sweet, male server was surly.

No need to pay ridiculous prices for a sandwich or burger. We loved it here. Right on Front street, great for people watching. They have misters that help with the heat and a small but comfy patio. We had the Hot Pastrami the first day and Grilled Ham & Cheese on a second visit. The waiter/waitress were attentive and personable. My husband enjoyed a second beer while I shopped a bit. We don't need fancy, just good eats for a reasonable price.

Our family decided to try Mad Madeline's last weekend. The burgers were good, not great. The fries looked hand-cut and were good. We all loved our milkshakes! We enjoyed the seating, which is all under cover, but no windows. Great on a beautiful day! Loved being able to view the downtown area and the mountains. We are a family of four and we each got a burger and a milkshake. We ordered one order of fries to share. Our total bill with tip was $80! Way overpriced for what we got. We were glad we tried it, but due to the crazy prices we won't be back.
