The original local burger.

burger. is a locally owned restaurant located in Santa Cruz, California. We opened our Santa Cruz location in 2010 and our Aptos location in 2012.  

At burger. we are committed to offering our customers an exceptionally flavorful burger. made with grass-fed beef and other locally sourced and high quality ingredients.  

Most importantly, burger. loves beer. We are a beer-centric restaurant with a large draft beer selection and a knowledgeable bar staff. With a large rotation of craft beers there is always something new to try at burger. #thesantacruzoriginal
