“Dry, pressed burgers”
Reviewed 11 December 2012

I had heard a lot of great things about this place so finally we took our whole family. We watched them cook our burgers and were shocked to see them push all of the flavor out over and over and they pressed hardly on them to get them to cook thoroughly. The result was a very flat, and tasteless burger. It was moderately priced, and might have been good if they would have let the burgers retain a little more of their juices. We don't see what others see as far as it being a great burger joint, but we have only been the once.

“Hard to find, easy to like.”
Reviewed 8 September 2012

Aptos Burger Company is an almost dumpy but actually very respectable place located in a shopping strip. Even with the GPS we drove around for 5 minutes before spotting the restaurant. But we were glad we persisted. The optional salad instead of fries was large and very good, hamburgers were made as we requested and also quite good, service was exceptionally friendly and prices were reasonable. Lots of locals eating here attested to the popularity of this very casual place-your-own-order-at-the-counter "find".

“Good burgers”
Reviewed 29 April 2012

We go there all the time for good burgers and great salads. I will miss it if it is removed when they do the big Safeway remodel.
