Bacon, caramelized onion, monterey cheese, jalapeño, and mushroom are commonplace burger toppings, but only an egg crowns the Sherman's Shack signature burger–the other ingredients are stuffed inside the beef. Cheddar cheese and pulled pork are among the other fixings packed into the patties of the eatery's handmade stuffed burgers. As for the menu's gourmet street tacos, chefs top them with a mix of classic and unorthodox ingredients including queso fresco, chicken slow roasted in whiskey and orange juice, and beer-battered tofu.
Snacks such as homemade hush puppies and fish balls stuffed with ricotta can be spiced up with an extensive selection of hot sauces. Meals are enjoyed in a cozy, open-air dining room, whose sole decoration on its metallic wall is a large silhouette of the island nation of California.
