I've eaten here a few times, and their burgers aren't bad, but they aren't great either. They don't seem to season their meat and put way too much Sylvester's sauce on their signature burger (or any burger with that sauce). It's not super expensive, so its a fine place to stop for an average burger in Atascadero. I will say... More

Sylvester's has some of the best burgers! Their variety can't be beat. You cannot eat a burger without multiple napkins! They are packed full of a variety of choices! Once you try one you will be back! Fun, casual atmosphere.

Great stop when traveling or want to have a casual get together with friends and family. This is a laid back, funky great place to meet and enjoy one of the best burgers ever. Inside can get crowded and loud. The best dining is outside on the heated patio. Order inside and they bring your meal to your table, great... More

They are must a short walk away from the Carlton Hotel. When I stay in Atascadero for business, this is where I stop to get a burger. But a must buy is their Tri Tip Sandwich, it is absolutely scrumptious.

Juicy yummy burgers. The food here is great. Service is average, not great and not bad. Little on the expensive side. Also I always ask for the house sauce on the side because they practically drown the burger in it, and it can make for a messy meal. I suggest the fried mushrooms. Sooo good!

Best burgers on the central coast, BY FAR. They always have new creative flavor combinations and every burger is BOMB. I follow them on Instagram because they always offer crazy specials and good deals. Pro tip: Wear your burger pants. They have 2 other locations also--the original in Los Osos, and Oceano, right by the Pismo dunes. Guarantee you'll be... More
