Seven of us get together once a month for breakfast. Its a much better value than most breakfast places and we enjoy the casual atmosphere. Even though its only once/monthly, the waitress Brenda always remembers our regular orders to every detail!

This was a go to place for my family. However while the quality of food has gone down, the prices have gone up. For the same price you can get a better meal at Claim Jumper.

If he hadn't been there before the 9 year old went in (i.e., cleaning, etc.), I'd report the employee to the Poway police and let the manager know that I was going to report the employee.

The Hamburger Factory Family Restaurant, located in Old Poway Park, provides a unique dining experience for all. The Old West motif, great food and friendly service keep people coming back again and again. As to be expected, there are great signature hamburgers that come in one-half-pound and one-quarter-pound sizes. The restaurant has been voted "Best Hamburgers" by Rancho Magazine's reader's poll six years in a row. What some people find surprising is the great full breakfast (offered seven days a week) and the wide lunch and dinner selection of sandwiches, salads, and awesome barbeque including ribs, chicken, and even steak. Complete your dining experience with a sundae in a size offered from "world's tiniest" to "world's largest." On weekends the park offers train rides, a farmers market, craft fair, and the Poway historical museum. Come join us at the Hamburger Factory, where we expect to become your favorite restaurant.
