Great All Around, Just Too Expensive, 7/21/2017
Reviewer: El Guapo from Santa Barbara, CA
Never had a bad meal here, fries are some of the best in town, love the fish sandwich, I think some of their burger combos try too hard to be too fancy, but this is one of the few places in town the whole family loves. Service is great, everyone is friendly and on top of everything. Pricing needs to come down though, for a family of four, say 3 burgers & 1 fish sandwich, if everyone gets water to drink you're still pushing $50. Dad wants a beer? Now you're up to $60. Just ridiculous. We love it so we'll go regardless of the cost, but maybe once a month instead of 2-3 times a month.

Not sure what the fuss is

Had the Ledbetter burger ($12) - pineapple, avocado smash teriyaki burger and it was pretty tasteless which gave off no beef flavor whatsoever, and the roll was basically gummy and ultimately soggy. Fries were stale and chewy. There are plenty of other burgers in this town that are a lot better and far better priced. Not sure why the buzz about this place and does the celebrity chef know what happened a few months later after the highly touted opening? Surrounding are pleasant, parking was hard to find, staff was efficient, though the wait for the burger itself was not worth the end product. There is a such a thing as a great burger, but this is not the place to find one.

Where's the beef?

I've tried this spot twice. The decor is dark and industrial.? Service is good. however, my Mesa burger was all sauce and lettuce. The patty was a disappointment. I wanted to create my own burger but it is pricey.

Not ready for prime time.

We were excited at the prospect of a Cat Cora restaurant in SB. Even though it is just a burger menu they struggled getting the food out to the tables. At one point every table but 1 was waiting for their order. Eventually, they started giving away french fries to appease the clients. People started leaving after the wait was too long. We finally got our order after 63 minutes. The fries were fine. The burgers were not special. Don't go here unless you have extra time to wait.

You're really gonna stick me with 99˘?

Pretty good hamburgers, albeit pricey. Mesa Burger is a cut above Eureka, but not as tasty as the Nugget. Still, it's a presence that's needed on the Mesa. That said…I was kind of amazed at something that went down there at around noon today. My bill was $14.01 and I gave the clerk a $20 bill. Instead of forgetting about the penny, she actually gave me a $5 bill and 99˘ in change. When I said something like, "oh, goody, now I get to carry around a pocket full of change all day," she sniped back, "well, you could always carry change with you so you'd have the right amount." If it were a few cents, I could understand it, but a PENNY–especially at their prices? Come on!
