can’t wait to come back!

we stopped here after a birthday beach trip for our daughter and we're not disappointed! There were so many burger options and the ladies working were super sweet. it was a gorgeous day for sitting outside on the patio, which is clean and cozy, but roomy. our food came out fast and hot and it did not disappoint. The price was on point for full vegan meals, fries, and drink included. unfortunately, did not take pictures because we gobbled down our food down so quickly. we had mentioned that it was our daughter's 15th birthday and the sweet lady at the front brought out a piece of carrot cake for her to celebrate so thoughtful! We can't wait to go back again after our next beach trip. Thank you so much!!

Pros: burger and drink options, sweet staff, prices

The tenders and ice cream

Wow so amazing. The absolute best vegan chicken tenders me or my bf have had and their soft serve ice cream is just like mc donalds.

Excellent Burgers

The whole family went and we tried many items, all of which were excellent. The chicken nuggets and tenders were great, some of the best I’ve had. Tried the honey mustard and chipotle dipping sauces, both yummy. I had the mainlander because grilled pineapple teriyaki burger is so unique and was delicious. The bbq bacon burger, Mexicali burger and the nice burger were also great. We also had a strawberry and chocolate shake, both super delicious and thick and creamy. I particularly liked the strawberry didn’t have that fake strawberry flavor. There are several locations so we will definitely go again.

Pros: All vegan, Many types of burgers and chicken sandwiches , Delicious

Cons: Pricey for basically fast food, Small parking lot

Best Breakfast Sandwich Ever

The spammie breakfast bagel is absolutely the best breakfast sandwich I have had ever. The bagel is just absolutely fantastic and the egg is perfect not super eggy and over the top with a nice texture. I've never had spam before but I can say the spam style patty was just perfect. Everything about this breakfast sandwich is unbelievably good. There is a little sign below the menu suggesting to order the spammie breakfast bagel with guac and mayo, absolutely do this it is a great suggestion. Staff is friendly and professional.

Took A Detour. Was Worth It!!

Heading home from mom’s and decided to take a detour and head over to Costa Mesa to try out Nice Burger.
Damn! Good thing I’m not counting calories. 😋
Settled on the BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger and Sweet Potato Fries.
…then I saw that they make Shakes too! So I ordered a Strawberry 🍓Shake. Have not had a shake in AGES! A bit pricey at $6.99 but well worth it! (btw…non-plastic straws. 😃👍🏽)
The burger was good but I have to say that I’m happy that this place is a 30-minute drive from me. I’m glad I know about this place but don’t want its temptations too close.
It was good for fast food! The Strawberry Shake was delicious. I was too full after the Shake and couldn’t finish the fries. By the way, they were good too!
This place is definitely worth the visit.

Pros: Full Vegan Menu, Shakes!, Vegan Burger joint thriving!

Cons: Four Shake flavors…okay, that’s not a “Con”, N/A

Fish Fillet

The fish fillet was made fresh and so good!! So much better than an original fish fillet. I liked the little side patio. It’s not as fast as super fast food but it’s still quick and delicious. Yum! I want to go back right now.

Pros: All Vegan, Freshly Made

Cons: No parking

Good Burgers

Delicious Shroom burger and tater tots. Fish sandwich was not quite as yummy but still tasty. Would definitely return for their greasy goodness.

Really good but…..

I was craving a burger and found Nice Burger n this app. The reviews had me excited and for the most part I was not disappointed….but the cheese was crunchy! I ordered the BBQ bacon cheese burger and the cheese looked/tasted as if it were deep fried… the texture was a bit crunchy and weird. I hope it was an anomaly… everything else was delicious.

Pros: 100% vegan, Friendly staff

Cons: Not sure about cheese.

Real American burger place, with a style and spacious inside. They have breakfast options - really good breakfast burrito (but huge!! Be aware:)).

I live a life where I have recurring cravings for a good burger. As a vegan, I’ve had SOME. But this place takes the cake. I never thought my taste buds would be so mesmerized by a vegan burger. Also had their shake. All I can say is 100%.

Heaven on Earth!!!

We had the bacon burgers with sides of tater tots and fries. Couldnt even take a picture because we dived in right away. Honestly, we have never had a burger as delicious as this before. And we have had lots of burgers. It was pure heaven. We'd love to go back there for breakfast, lunch and dinner for the rest of our trip.

Pros: All vegan, So many options!!, Heavenly taste

Cons: Nothing!!

For Big Guys only!

I took an omnivore friend to this spot. We both went for the Big Guy (double patty) burger. He was blown away, as was I. Great burger. The side, in my case tater tots, was also tasty and a lot of fun. There is plenty of seating outside.

We visited the Newport Beach /Costa Mesa area over the weekend! We found this place because of Happy Cow! The owner/manager was so friendly and gave us his recommendations! We had the mushroom burger and sweet potato fries!!! Omgggg!!! This was so amazing that we had the bacon BBQ Burger in a lettuce wrap delivered the next day! The driver forgot our tea…. But we were enjoying his delicious our food was… that we completely forgot about the tea!
