Flips Burgers in Stockton

Since I just celebrated my 29th birthday you would think I would have learned that hamburgers are going to send me to an early grave. Even with a vegetarian wife though I can’t seem to get away from a good greasy burger, so when driving through Stockton I figured I had to give the famous hole in the wall burger joint Flips a try.

  • Cost – $6- 8 for a burger

After reviewing the menu I settle on what the waitress assured me was a local favorite, the mad cow burger. This burger had cheese, bacon, an egg, onions, chipotle sauce and fried jalapeños on it, I was instantly sold. I also ordered deep-fried mushrooms and Amie ordered a veggie burger.

First, the mad cow. It was an exceptional burger. The chipotle sauce and the jalapeños really made it as it was spicy but insanely flavorful. The egg also added a good additional subtle flavor to the burger as well.

Amie got the veggie burger and she said it was a standard burger but what made it good was the toppings such as pepper jack cheese and mushrooms that she added to the top.

The sides of deep-fried mushrooms and zucchini added to the greasy meal with an exceptional and heavy ranch dipping sauce they came with.

Since we needed the full experience though we also got the Nutella banana milkshake which is a crowd pleaser on Yelp. It was better than I even expected and I think I might have enjoyed it even more than the burger, next time I go I will try their crunch berry milkshake.

Don’t let the location fool you (not the best part of town) Flips knows what it’s doing and I highly recommend it if you are road tripping through Stockton.
