Can't miss consistent burgers at any one of their locations. I love the paradise for a higher-end burger cooked on mezquite but but for moderately priced burgers this is right up there with in and out and it's local

Great cheeseburger. My daughter loved her turkey, or veggie, burger. Fries were good, seating outdoors, limited inside. Nothing fancy but tasty. No beer, my girl liked her shake.

Great tasting burgers. Better than In 'n Out in my opinion and not as long of a wait. A little hidden, but worth the search

We enjoyed the Char burger and a wonderful grilled tuna burger. Great fast food. The fried green beans were a nice surprise. We took our food to go and enjoyed a nice picnic at the SB Mission.
