This restaurant is one of the reasons that I love using TripAdvisor. Without it, we would inevitably have passed by this local gem. Very understated from the outside, the inside has loads of character with a movie theme in the decor - the scrolling photos of classic Hollywood movie stars on a large screen on one wall allowed a family...

Yes, I'm from the East Coast and my trip to Silicon Valley was going to last less than 24 hours so I decided to keep my clock on East Coast time. Showed up at 4:30pm on a Sunday afternoon (local time) and the place was almost packed. Sat at the bar, and was treated to one of the best "basic"... More

Glad you were able to join us for a burger while you were in town from Virginia! We'd love a chance to grill up another next time you're in our neck of the woods. Have a great rest of the summer! All the best, Mike More

I have eaten here 3 times and never disappointed. It is a small building so we try to time going for early dinner or lunch. We got seated right away each time. It's a little pricy but The burgers are great, The last time we ordered a salad to share and shared the burger and was full. I like going... More

These are by far the best burgers in Belmont! Even the vegetarian one is good. The staff is always helpful and the atmosphere is different. It's obviously mobster themed. Works well both for friendly gatherings and for a date. Just remember to show up hungry!

Compared to your other choices in this area this one is simple and fun, especially for kids. Lots of mafia terms buried in the menu. Be sure to make reservations. Food is delicious, prices are reasonable, the wait staff busts a gut to please you. Biggest negative is very limited parking, so lose the high heels. You may walk a... More

Good atmosphere and great food, interesting selection. Moderately long waits if you go at peak eating times but worth it! Downside, it is a small place so there is not much elbow room between tables.

We found this place accidentallty but it was the best accident we ever had. The burgers (and there are many choices of equipment for them) are cooked exactly as requested, come in 1/2 pound variety, and the place is always crowded, testifying as to how well accepted it is. The service is efficient,with the servers nearly running to keep up.... More
