Don't waste your time on anything else. Huge selection of burgers, good selection of craft beers. The daily specials are good and priced right

The burgers, Philly Cheese Steaks and sides are great here. Always a busy lace and very tasty pub fare. There are lots of TVs showing what ever sporting events are on live at that time all over the world. Simply a great sports bar. It is quite a loud place due to the volume of people there.

Great local joint that I frequent when traveling on business. Good daily specials that help you save some money. A busy local hangout place for whatever sport is in season if you like to watch sports on the big screen with friends or strangers. Nothing fancy, just good food and a fun local sports bar.

We have been here before and love to come back especially for the specials. The burgers and sides are all great. Great beer, pub and grill atmosphere.

My friends have been raving about this place for months stating that it is their favorite place to get a burger. It is a bit our of the way for us, so it took us some time to get here and I really don't think it was worth the drive. The place was packed and loud, difficult to find a... More

We went here before the Pacific 12 championship game at Levi Stadium. It is NOT walking distance to stadium or train, but it is one of the few bar and grills remotely close. The area to the west of the stadium has many good Asian and Indian choices but that wasn't what we were looking for. Football games call for... More

Been a regular customer for several years, but the pricing and value defy logic. Amazes me how customers continue paying almost $12+ for a burger and fries. Lines are getting shorter for sure, but wish them luck. Refuse to pay that kind of money, will just move elsewhere.

The 1/2 off days for sandwiches and burgers are a great value. The veggie burger, fries and onion rings are delicious. Well worth a trip to St Johns. Good food and atmosphere.

Ever want something different? need to load up on meat? feeling a lazy Friday? This is the place. hot BBQ with a mix of outdoor seating should hit the spot for the guys on a Friday. Convenient location off Lawrence by 237, central meeting spot for those who work between San Jose and Mt. View. Not a fancy place but... More
