This small little place serves a classic old fashion flamed burger which is unbeatable! The Rings and Fries are perfectly cooked and delicious. It is extremely crowded at lunch time but the service is quick! A real find!

The best burger in Santa Barbara, hands down without having to go to a fancy restaurant. You can dine in or get it to go. Always good food & friendly staff... Holly

Best cheap hamburger joints in town. Burgers are grilled to order, lavishly garnished with lettuce, tomato and onion unless you tell them not to. Alternately order a chicken, fish or veggie burger and, feeling righteous, allow yourself a side of crisp onion rings or fries....More

This little burger joint recently was franchised and other stands are beginning to pop up all over the US. This one however is the first and likely the best. Located in funky old town Goleta, California but well worth it. Seating is outside like a...More

Yes, you can get lettuce as a bun, it is called protein style. Also, if you tell them you have gluten problems, they can tell you what they have that is gluten free.
