Decent Burger at a good price

We ordered out from Flipside when we were hungover from the Napa wineries. The food was warm, but the fries were a bit soggy. The burger was too small for the bun which is gigantic. Good flavor though!

If you want a burger in the Lakeshore District this is the place to go. I don't always eat meat. I don't always eat burgers but I'll make a beeline here for any kind of burger. 1. Go twice and they will remember you forever after - burger quirks and all. 2. They care how much you enjoy your food... More

Probably a great place to take the kids but I am in search of a great burger and theirs is only average for both beef and turkey. Loved the interior decor but very noisy and the line for food is always cramping the tables. Get takeout.

This is an amended review with a 1-star downgrade. It is great to have a burger joint in the neighborhood that is comfortable being a burger place, but the burgers are, more and more, only ok. It's great that they have lots of topping choices, and I'm glad they finally stopped advertising "Seasonal Shakes" (when exactly is Oreo season?). It's... More

Flipside was hopping on a mid Saturday afternoon in what is by far the busiest time of the week in the neighborhood. This is a pretty good burger joint, pretty clean and with a fairly extensive menu. I kept it simple with a $7.95 classic burger, ordered medium well, with tomato, lettuce, Flipside sauce (like a 1000 Island dressing), served... More
