I have been driving by this place for years and for some reason never stopped in. I have been missing out! Had the special burger with cheese and grilled onions. Very good. This is very typical greasy burger and fries type of place. Nothing fancy but good if that's what you're after. Seating is limited, maybe for 10. Will be... More

My German college and I drove to the Golden Gate Bridge and kept on driving. Stopped for a bite and the trusty app led us here. Don't be put off by the appearance, the burgers are great. Have cash and save yourself 50 cents on the prices. The fries are greasy but if use the kitchen roll to absorb the... More

I've lived in Vallejo for 8 years and never gone into this burger joint even though it is usually busy. Today I decided to stop in. How utterly disappointed I was. The place was filthy. I encountered three different employees all with bad attitudes and unfriendly. The board said all meat is cooked medium. My burger was way past well... More

Good tasting burgers, good price and GREAT STAFF. So much fun and friendly. I think everyone needs to make a stop here for good burgers if they are in the area.

Everytime I go to Vallejo I make sure to detour to Bud's. This weekend was no exception! They make the best burgers and the fries are made from fresh potatoes instead of that frozen stuff. You can get a burger, fries and soda for around $5; to get more bang for your buck, order the Mega special - it is... More

The patty was pretty small. I wish I had ordered a double. Fries were real potatoes and very good. Service was fast.

Phoned in an order and found the order wasn't ready or even acknowledged when we went to pick it up. Don't phone in an order, just go there and wait on your order. Check your order before you leave. These are big juicy burgers and lots of fries with your order. Basic hometown privately owned burger joint. Skip the chains... More
