Delicious burger and fries. I'll go back there again. There were 3 of us on a sunny week day afternoon. It was the lunch hour and there was only one spot left. We were promptly attended to and seated, and immediatedly asked what we'd like to drink. There are also great sandwiches on the menu... read more

This was a great vegetarian friendly lunch find when strolling solo through Montclair Village. As a vegetarian, it always makes me happy to find a Garden Burger option at a burger joint. Delightful, attentive and friendly staff. Quick service. Delicious veggie burger.

I'm always a bit leery about trying new places that say they are gourmet hamburger joints... The reason for this is because I am normally always disappointed. The menu had several choices, but I wasn't disappointed.. I think also because I had a good server... Josh was an amazing server and was very cool.... Please note that this place can... More

You can get beef, turkey, veg., etc type burgers, All organic. Good sides. All very good. However, don't ask for a well done hamburger, it comes out very half burned.

The food here is satisfying. The salads, burgers and shakes are good. The homemade potato chips are great (when fresh). It's all pretty standard fare done adequately. Great location. The booth seating is very comfortable. The problem: unprofessional wait staff -- slow, letting food sit and get cold when there are only 3 tables with people. Some of them are... More

Had a very good bacon burger, with fries and coleslaw. A small place, with both inside and side walk dining. Good food for all the family.

Excellent quality burgers, all from Niman's Ranch. If you care about the quality of your food, this is the place to come. I had the turkey burger which was excellent and my friend had the veggie burger which they also enjoyed. Can get organic salad as a side and there are lots of choices and variety to the menu.

It is not often a Hamburger place serves organic beef from Nieman Ranch Cooperative. That is what we encountered at Flippers. Nice ambiance, live music and great burgers with French fries to savour. A good stop when you pass through beautiful Montclair section of Oakland. It's very near Chabot Space & Science Center and Joaquin Miller Park.

It's too bad they use Niman Ranch Beef on a horrible, squashed tasteless sesame seed bun.. fries are definitely frozen and old... not good... so very sad .. place is empty most of the time, I see why .. no reason to visit again...
