Welcoming, friendly and great flavours and choice but new location!

Our second night in the USA at Seaside and our first meal out so it had to be good and all-American!! After consulting trip advisor we had a number of options to choose from but decided to go for Phat Burger, but when we double checked the zip code we found that it has moved to a new location... read more

Just as they established themselves as the best burger in town and a successful business, the landlords shut them down and decided to open their own restaurant, Google Grill.

We have often had lunch at Phatburger, but, sadly, it is no longer on Del Monte Blvd in Seaside. They lost their lease, Good news, however, is that it has moved into "The Breakfast Club" on Fremont Street in Seaside, and provides outstanding lunches and dinners. The condiment bar with salad stuff is still part of their program, and their... More

Phat Burger went out of business over a year ago! There is not much else to say. It was good over a year ago but the building owner decided to open his own restaurant.

First, this place is now part of the Breakfast Club restaurant. Second, the service is far above standard and so is the food. They serve large portions of real food and their prices are so good that I felt guilty paying such a small amount. This place felt like it was locally owned and I was glad we spent some... More

This place is so fun and crazy! I love the burgers, mmm! I would love to see this place on Diners, Dives and Drive-Ins or Dives, Diners and Drive-Ins or whatever that show is called. This place would be a knuckle smacker for Guy if he came and hung with these burger dudes!

I stopped in on a Sunday afternoon and it was quite busy. Lots of families and a few dogs on the sunny patio. A family owned and run joint. Mom apparently stopped by and was quickly recruited to take orders from the ever expanding line. Blue Cheese burgers are my benchmark for a good burger and this one was GREAT!... More

This place is popular with the locals. The variety of burgers is enormous and if you don't see what you want, just tell them and they'll make it for you. They have a great condiment bar allowing you to add your own unique twist. Give it a try.
