My wife and I eat here regularly and are never disappointed. Sure it’s a burger restaurant with table service. But if you’re salivating for a gourmet burger this is the spot. Yea you can get a good regular burger at Five Guys or In And Out, but neither compares to the quality or the ambiance of the Godfather’s. The two... More

The title says it all. In talking to the owner, it is clear that the reason the burgers here are so good is because of the quality of the beef. The only downside to eating here is that you won't want to have a lesser burger anywhere else because you now notice more fully what good ground beef should taste... More

Best in the west, Reg? You're making us blush! When it comes to beef, it sounds like you really know your stuff, so we're happy to hear you were so impressed with the quality of ours. Looking forward to welcoming you back soon! All the best, Mike More

Went here with a group of 20+ from work. Given the number of people all at one table in a pretty small restaurant they coped admirably. Great selection of burgers, cooked to your liking...which you don't often get the opportunity from where I come from. I settled on a medium rare with cheese and pepperoni. Great taste , burger juices... More

If there could be one word to describe us, it's definitely burgerlicious! Happy to know you and your group loved what we're all about. We're not fancy, just a nice place that makes a great burger. Glad your medium rare with cheese and pepperoni could hit the spot. Hope you come back for more soon! Take care, Mike More

Try this place you will not be sorry, friendly service, great food, good local beer. We eat here at least once a month, my husband and I usually share a burger and a salad. I like the regular fries, but my kids swear by the sweet potato fries. The restaurant is small, so make sure if you go during a... More

their Philly Cheesesteak burger, made with ground rib eye is TDF. All super fresh ingredients, artisan buns.... and even their salads are primo. and check out their hot wings - best I've tasted - spicy hot, but not overly greasy.

TDF has to be my favorite new acronym. To die for, right? Awesome. Really glad you liked everything! Come back and see us for some more wings next time you're around. All the best, Mike More

The food is terrific and they serve a wonderful assortment of local micro brewery beers.

Stick to one thing, and do it well. That's what this hole-in-the-wall yet high-end burger place does. This is not fast food, it's a real restaurant, suitable for a night out on the town, with a bar (beer & wine only), and a hip, fun scene. It's well run, the crowd is friendly, and it's a good bit cheaper than... More

We love Godfather's. I'm not a big burger person, but when we do go out for a burger, Godfather's is our first choice. It's much better than Jack's Prime.
