The food is terrific and they serve a wonderful assortment of local micro brewery beers. They are more than happy to pour you samples gratis so that you are ordering a beer you will be more than happy with. Love that kind of service and attention to detail. The decor is terrific for a fabulous upscale quality burger kind of... More

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.

When you first walk into Godfathers Burger lounge you find a very small restaurant and lounge. It reminds me of a neighborhood hangout you would find in San Francisco. There is always a line on a Friday or Saturday night. My guess is that the place holds around 60 customers. The menu is filled with different kinds of burgers with... More

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

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!
