I had heard that the burgers here were great but for some reason had just never gotten there. Next to good ribs, grilled burgers are my favorite food in life. My daughter, granddaughter and I stopped by last night after the beach. We all ordered...More

Driving by the Riders Club Cafe you would never think that you might get the best burger you ever tasted in that place, but that is what happened. We went at the recommendation of some people we had met locally and I'm glad we did!...More

Really good burgers and a nice selection of craft beers. Basically the menu is a variety of burgers, an excellent shredded pork sandwich, and hot dogs. Friendly staff and dog friendly as well.

Their burgers and pork sandwiches are both excellent, but most toppings for the burgers are extra, so they can be pretty expensive with the add-ons. Also, they serve potato chips instead of french fries. POTATO CHIPS? This should be punishable with a 5 year prison...More

It's a spot mostly for locals. It's little more than a hole in the wall so probably most tourists would miss it. The hamburgers are super and the chicken salad is not to be missed. They serve craft beer but not a lot of selection....More
