Try their pies

Most people enjoy their burgers and their good breakfast. But we usually stop in for the excellent variety of fresh baked pies.

Really good, huge burger. Big and messy, just the way a good burger should be, they don't skimp on toppings. Definitely going back, wish we would've found them when we were in the area last year.

After 10 in Alameda this is one of your very few choices for food. The food is decent. Breakfast is actually their best meal (served all day and night). Pie is decent. Late night clientele is interesting. Burgers are ok. But if you're hungry at 11 pm in Alameda, head to Nations and see what late night is about.

Cheeseburger with the works & Fries $8.65 Pickles and grilled onions optional Super sized "in & out" burger flavor if you've ever had one of those. Not bad, but not gourmet.

We were hungry for pies and this fit the bill! The banana creme pie was excellent and the pecan wasn't bad either. Would of thought they made them there but they don't... Still very yummy!

This is a very basic burger with no frills, cooked on a flat top, and delivered with lettuce, tomato, onion, american cheese and way too much mayo (IMHO) on a soft bun. If this burger were a color, it would be Beige. Images of Belushi and Akroyd's SNL Olympia Diner come to mind, "Chee-burgee, Chee-burgee, Chee-burgee...no Coke - Pepsi!" No... More

Great for late night (open all night) munchies, huge cheeseburgers with grilled onions, 3 egger breakfasts with all the fixin's, but leave room for pie! I'm picking up 2 tomorrow morning for Thanksgiving.

We had a tasty lunch of Cheeseburgers and fries at Nations. The restaurant was clean, the service was friendly and the food was very good. Only complaint is that we were to full to have a piece of pie!
