I know they are know for their burgers & i'm sure they are just as good as the burritos we tried! We had a tri tip burrito & a chicken burrito & they were delicious! Service was fast & friendly! It was perfect for the quick lunch we were looking for!

Just passing through Solvang and thought we would check out this cute burger drive in. We ordered the recommended Philly Cheese Steak. It was a thumbs down. The meat was diced into small cubes so I'm sure when heated added to the dryness of the meat. The cheese wasn't even melted. The bread was fresh and the onion rings were... More

Even though this place is known for its burgers, we decided to try a tri tip burrito and a grilled chicken sandwich and we were absolutely blown away! It was probably the best tri tip i have ever tasted. It had a rich smoky flavor that i still crave. The chicken sandwich was also amazing and so juicy. They have... More

Awesome big bopper burger on a scrumptious roll. But do not get the Mexican food. My sons had a California burrito which really was a bizarre version poorly wrapped in a square with the guacamole on the outside. A total mess. Stick with the burgers!
