Holy burgers batman!!!

Wow! So many choices, so little time! The burgers were huge and delicious! Go for the sweet potato fries - the garlic truffle fries were a bit of a let down. Oreo shake was delicious too.

Had dinner here with my husband. He got just a regular burger and it was cooked perfect. If you get the garlic fries be prepared to not talk to anyone for weeks. Haha they were good just a ton of garlic. I had the meatball sliders. They were delicious also but just a tad dry. All in all good dig... More

That's gotta be the funniest comment I've ever heard about the Garlicky Truffle fries -- maybe we should hand out mouthwash at the door. As for the sliders, sorry if they seemed a little dry! I'll pass that on to the kitchen, and I hope we get it right next time. Keep in touch! All the best, Mike More

Luckily Sunnyvale's not too far. Looking forward to seeing you back to try a few more options. Sorry the Garlicky Truffle Fries fell short this time -- passing that on to the kitchen! Keep me updated. Until next time, Mike More

The restaurant is great. We were unhappy with the burger. THIS IS OUR OPINION. The hamburger is to lean another words very dry. We like good old fashion juicy burgers and theses were not

Bobbie, our burgers should be anything but dry! Sorry to hear that the ones we served up weren't juicy enough. Definitely let us know if that's the case next time so we can make it right. All the best, Mike More

A friend told me that Godfather's had the best burger in the bay area...having only lived here for a few weeks, I cannot confirm that. However, I can say that the burger was very good. Sweet potato fries were yummy!

This place is great! Great food, service, and atmosphere. They have a wide variety of burgers, and any can be substituted with a delicious veggie patty.

It’s a tall order to proclaim the best burger in the Peninsula but I will challenge you to find a better one after your try Godfathers.

My husband and I have driven past this restaurant many times and finally remembered it when we were looking for a place for dinner. It's fantastic! The burgers are excellent, the fries to die for, and the service very good. We'd definitely go again.
