We were met by locals lined up before opening. Had the Schwack combo with the "Breki Spuds". Vegan options!!! Great house coffee blend. I will make this a favorite stop when we are in town. 💜

Friends and I stopped by Shwack Burgers on the way home after work. We all ordered different burgers and all three of the burgers came to the table just as ordered looking delicious. The delicious looking burgers did not disappoint anyone and tasted just as delicious as they looked. Personally, I enjoy The Shwack burger, which comes with lettuce, tomatoes,... More

Shwack serves the best burgers in town, but they also have great salads, fish tacos, and a very good tortilla soup! Their spuds are light and not greasy, but just in case, you can wash'em down with a nice frosty beer. Atmosphere is friendly and beachy, just like you want in Dana Point. No attitudes!!

This place has great burgers and beer on tap. I usually sit inside but if you want to watch cars drive by no PCH thats an option too. Great place to go to after work.

Nice local burger joint. The Shwak spuds were so yummy. Burgers were huge. Serving tap beers and drinks it's a good hangout.

Loved our burgers and spuds. Seating can be tough during lunch or peak periods. Service was very good and we will go back to have breakfast for sure. Parking behind the restaurant is limited but the location is good and close to walks along Prado.

We stopped in for an early lunch and had two great salads. We also had the Feta Spin Fins for an appetizer. Those feta spin fins are the best!!! But the best thing about it was the customer service, which was top notch!! The unsweetened ice tea did taste a little "funny" (maybe it was old old or maybe it... More
