“Veggie sandwich is awesome”
Reviewed 3 March 2013

I don't meat so unfortunately I can't review the burgers, but I can say the veggie sandwich is an absolute piece of heaven. Honestly. Normally I will skip meatless sandwiches for another type of food, but they don't have many vegetable options here so I tried the vegetable sandwich. Stellar. Perfect blend of avocado, sprouts, mayonnaise, and other veg between two crusty slices of sourdough toast. This sandwich is like a symphony for your mouth.

If I were only reviewing the veg sandwich it would be five stars, but there are a few other drawbacks about this restaurant. The fries are just ok, they are never crispy and have been soggy a few times. There is no soda fountain and you can only purchase soda in overpriced cans. The prices in general are not great, and I once was served a disgusting wilted salad. The atmosphere is fine for what it is, but sometimes fills up. Milkshakes are tasty.

I feel like a real a-hole reviewing a burger restaurant when I don't even eat meat, but it is definitely worth a try for the non-meat eaters. Enjoy your sandwich and don't expect any frills.

“Excellent Burger”
Reviewed 9 January 2013

This restaurant is a hole in the wall in a bad section of town. However, they serve an incredible hamburger. Unfortunately, it will give you coronary artery disease and shorten your life. The burger is so good that its worth sacrificing a few months.

“Cheeseburger Heaven”
Reviewed 5 January 2013

Best Cheeseburger in Chico, they load it with shredded cheese of your choice, then it melts and some goes on the grill, and it stays connected to the burger----yummy!!

“Really Good Cheeseburger Burger”
Reviewed 24 November 2012

Get the Cheeseburger which will have a ring of crusty delectable cheese around it. You wonder how with such seemingly basic ingredients you get such a truly spectacular burger. After becoming a regular, Donna the brains behind this small crowded diner said try my other stuff- the tacos and the steak sandwich which are also better than anyplace in Chico, but that Cheeseburger is the Eighth Wonder of the World all in it's self. Donna never dreamed that her place would take off like it did, and is almost always got a line-she says call ahead between 11AM and 1PM. It just shows that locals rule when it come to food in Chico.

“not your average burger”
Reviewed 27 October 2012

After reading the trip advisor reviews I knew that I had to have a Nobbys burger on a recent visit to Chico, and we were not disappointed! This is an incredible burger and for those of you who appreciate a tasty, unique, not a run of a mill hamburger, this is for you! The buns are fresh and tasty as are all of the other ingredients. I loved how the cheese ran over the side of the patty was the best. Be prepared for a wait, because there is not much space inside, and food is cooked to yyour order! Everyone visiting Chico should have a "Nobbys experience"
