Good burgers and cheap breakfasts

The breakfasts are very reasonable! The burger and fries NEVER failed esp when you see them being grilled in front of you!!

No doubt the hamburger was big, 3/4 lb!! Nothing special, though. Just another burger. Too much mayo!! Can add mustard or catsup too and other fixins. The onion rings were really good. Just the right amount of crunch and breading!!

Service was excellent. Best buger I have ever had. The pie is a must have. I will always go there when I'm in Alameda.

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!
