Visited on a super rainy Sunday evening in Oct. My grandgirl and I were hungry for burgers and this place was SO cute, including the VW bus in front. Food was very good and quick and the service was friendly.

Review the price before you order. Two people, two burgers, one fries, one fried onion rings, no drinks. Over $27.00 charge. Food is not bad but this is eating at a street side picnic table.

We just had their Swiss and mushroom burger and it was amazing. It's such a great spot for the family to grab dinner in a pleasant atmosphere with lots of outdoor seating. Cleanliness is key the staff is always attending to trash and making sure tables are clean. If you're craving a great burger GO HERE!!

Great place to go for your burger and fries fix. The menu is huge and offers other good things. They even have ice cream now. Depending on the night there could be live music too.

This is the place to go with kids for sure. Typical burger and fries joint. Service is order at counter then they call your name and you self serve. Kids meals come with fries 6.50 with a drink. Reasonable for the shore. Upgrade for a dollar and get a shake. Shakes are outstanding. Food is just average. It's good for... More

Somehow at this years Jimmy Buffet concert I found myself not having my annual cheeseburger....a real tradition and treat for me. Historically the next day after the Jimmy concert was spent recovering at the beach. Well this year I happened upon a delightful place right on the main drag on LBI. To my great pleasure, cheeseburgers were on the menu... More

My kids love walking off the beach and getting burgers and shakes here. The menu is extensive and their mac and cheese bites are delicious. The funnel cake fries are amazing! I've never had something I didn't like here and we've been eating lunch here several days a week for many years.
