Best burger in Santa Cruz County? I have to say Carpos!

Hello folks,

Please welcome a new contributor, myself, Thomas of Soquel, California.

A lover of food with fairly low-brow tastes.

Back on topic, having tried a lot of the burger places in Santa Cruz County, I would have to nominate "Carpo's" as the best.

A medium-rare Carpo-Burger is juicy and tender, with grill marks and charcoal-like flavor.

I get them with cheddar cheese and grilled onions, but as a low carb person I forgo the large, tough baguette style bun.

I put a layer of sliced salted and peppered tomatoes under the burger, a pile of sour pickles on the side, and a mayo, ketchup and mustard blend on top. (They have a condiment bar where you can pile all this stuff on.)

Eaten with a knife and fork, due to the lack of bun (and apologies to the burger purists!) it's the best burger I've had in Santa Cruz!
