When “Pop” Swenson and a local butcher developed a special blend of meats and spices in 1934, they didn’t know that 82 years later their special recipe would have received awards such as “America’s Best” by one of the foremost food critics in America (Forbes FYI magazine, 1999); and the “Double Decker Burger Winner” by Iron Chef Michael Symon (Food Network 2010). Countless online customer polls and newspaper and magazine “best of the area” contests continue to recognize Swenson’s for that tradition of legendary taste, made-to-order freshness and friendly curbside service.
Swenson’s has always been about choices. From the signature Galley Boy burger, meatless Salad Boy, and a milkshake selection of 18 flavors with limitless combinations, to the refreshing fizz of the California and Florida beverages, crispy fries and six other sides, soups, salads, dinners and more, Swenson’s provides an extraordinary dining experience to fit every taste. All delicious, all fresh, all made to order. Call ahead or order upon arrival. Eat on the lot or get it to go. It’s all up to you!
Swenson’s always takes the extra steps to insure the highest quality and taste by making its scrumptious menu items with premium ingredients. Swenson’s burgers are made from prime cuts of meat ground fresh daily; the toasted, buttered buns are baked fresh daily; and Swenson’s homestyle soups and chili are always cooked fresh daily. What’s more, Swenson’s does not prepare your food until you order it, so it is always hot, fresh and delicious!
