The burgers here are OK. If you want a really good burger i would go to Habit or to Umami Burger instead. The place is nice and clean but if you want a good burger this isnt the spot

The best time to be here is in warm weather wihen all the "garage door" windows are open. This is a very casual place. The service is excellent and the burgers are the best- not cheap- but worth the extra cost. It's fun to choose all your "fixing". They do have a few vegan alternatives, but it is really a... More

I love this place because I can completely customize my bison burgers. Service is always good and the quality is consistent. Parking a in a total pain depending on the time of day.

We go here for lunch or dinner 2-4x a month. The atmosphere in the Marina del Rey is very pleasant, and it's a perfect setting for this restaurant - you can see the palm trees blowing in the wind. This is mostly a hamburger place, but you can order beef, turkey or a vegan veggie option. Included in the price... More

Great for a quick, easy dinner. Is in a strip mall and not listed on restaurant map distributed by hotel but we wanted something tasty yet casual. This was perfect. Waitress very friendly, burgers great, fried onion strips hit with teen boy - fries portion huge - could have shared

I like this concept and the burgers are well executed. Make sure not to go overboard when you're picking your ingredients and making your own burger... we found the service to be pleasant and friendly and the food was good. We'd definitely return!

We decided to just get some take out for dinner. This was a god place to do it. Ordered several salads. You decide what you want in the salad, and they put whatever burger you want on top. We all ordered the turkey burger. Loved it. All of us had different dressings. I ordered the Mediterranean Salad. Wonderful. Great place... More

I'm visiting LA's Marina del Rey area frequently for work and make sure to stop at the counter every time I'm there. They are one of the places around that have an amazing vegan option. The very flexible 'build your own burger' menu is great for keeping things interesting. It can be overwhelming, but the staff is very helpful if... More

Stopped by here with my dad for an agreeable lunch. The buffalo burger was on offer and a little out of the ordinary. Love the built to order burger salad. Plenty of parking even on Labor Day weekend.
