With Nessy, it is all about the quality of beef they use in their burgers. Just seasoned a tad to highlight the fresh taste with every bite. I have yet to try anything else because when I get a carnivourous (sp?) craving, this is the spot to go. Their perfectly golden and crunchy french fries with fry sauce completes the package.
There are picnic tables, prepare yourself to share if its crowded or at lunch time. Maybe you would just "tailgate" it if your a little antishare. Everyone is happy here, once they get their appetites filled and military/law enforcement get discounts.

Friends from Fallbrook had highly recommended this unique burger joint. Having completed a round of golf nearby, and facing an hour and a half drive home, we were anxious to give it a try before hitting the traffic.

We knew the history. It was operating out of a trailer in a commuter parking lot before being relocated to a more permanent location, although still out of trailer, in a nearby strip mall. We knew it was immensely popular so we were happy to get there before the lunch hour to avoid the lines.

In our group of four we ordered two Nessy burgers and a chicken sandwich (to be split) and one side of fries. The burgers were messy. The chicken breast was huge. The fries were delicious. It was an experience. But I don't know that I thought it was as good as our friends had led us to believe.

Clearly, despite the slightly high prices, they deliver a lot of food. And the food is fresh. But I think this is a case of Nessy being a product of the local community so they support it religiously. But you have to eat outside on picnic benches, which are in short supply. Soda comes in a can, for $1.25, so no free refills. When the lines get long (which they did after we had ordered) it takes a while for the food to come up.

Clearly this is a hugely popular place. Folks were scrambling to find parking spaces in the strip mall, along the road, in the dirt lot where the two port-a-potties serving the restaurant are located. We saw the UPS guys, the FedEx guy, a host of construction workers and guys in business suits getting their Nessy burger fix. So if you want to say you have been there, go. You won't be dissapointed by the food. But if you want air-conditioning, clean bathrooms and a free soda refill, find someplace else.

Burger Place. Either takeaway or eat outside tables. Flies are bad at times. Overpriced and pretty ordinary food.

If you are on the 15 heading North out of Escondido or south from Temecula, get off at Hwy 76 because you won't be able to eat for another 20 minutes and you could miss this "roadside gem." These are big burgers like the guy who knows how to barbeque does it in his backyard. One half pound on a big bun with lettuce, tomato and onions. They also have killer fries and big hot dogs. Lots of picnic tables like Taylor's Refresher in St. Helena. Be prepared to pay $8 for the Nessie burger (worth every penny) and to wait at least 20 minutes (worth every minute). This is a classic, "can't tell a book by it's cover" and you will be surprised. Saw the steak sandwich ($10) and it was huge. Next time. They will cut burger in half for you. Make the turn behind the Mobil station for 1/4 mile.
