The Surf Shack

The burgers at The Surf Shack are made Southern Californian-style, with crisp lettuce, a thick slice of tomato and Thousand Island dressing slathered on the bun. The goal of owner Gary Kender, a surfer originally from Long Beach, Calif., is to serve up wholesome burgers with a '50s surf culture theme. No high-fructose corn syrup here — just sauces made in house like the huckleberry ketchup and "love sauce." (Nov. 2013)
