Grabbed a quick lunch while staying in the area, and the place was a great spot. Good food and very reasonable (under $10 for a burger/fries/drink). Only recommendation I'd make is the buns are good-sized, so the smaller burgers are 1/6th lb patties, and that's a little too much bun:hamburger ratio. Definitely recommend getting one of the bigger patties if... More

Burgers are best "charbroiled" on a cast iron grill, which is what Jeff's uses. They also other options on sandwiches, including pastrami. I asked if they could make a burger with pastrami on it and they were more than willing to do so even if it wasn't on the menu.

We found Jeff's Burgers because of a list of the Top Burgers in San Diego. It's easy to see why it made the list, and we'll go back!

It has been years since I visited Jeff's. I forgot how good it is. It is situated in the La Jolla Shores Village area, parking is usually difficult. It has been here for at least a decade. At least

Went snorkeling in La Jolla with my children and happened upon this restaurant thereafter. The burgers and fries were amazing and the prices very reasonable for La Jolla. Definitely recommend this place for a burger after a day in the sun.

We popped in here after a Kayak tour for a quick bite before hitting the beach again. I am such a germaphobe so it totally grossed me out looking at the cleanliness of the joint. It was not very clean. I was ready to walk but my husband thought otherwise. I did eat the burger and it was good but... More

We ate at Jeff's twice during a recent visit to LJ - both times bc we were next door at Bike and Kayak. It's a great, casual place to enjoy a good burger at a good price. We didn't try the fries, but the onion rings were good!

Just a couple of blocks off the beach, good beach food, reasonable prices, very low key, beach attire OK. Burgers were good, nothing super fantastic but worth a stop if in the area.
