The Brakeman American Grill is Victor's family friendly spot for the BEST Burgers, Sandwiches and delicious Salads. It's all about FRESH at The Brakeman. We grind our beef daily right on site and add our own special seasonings, fresh vegetables and a delicious sourdough bun to create the BEST Burger. Our fresh cut Idaho Fries are a terrific treat and accompany all Burgers and Sandwiches. The Brakeman serves freshly brewed Sun Tea, Fair Trade Organic coffee,sodas and a variety of local and regional beers and wines. The Brakeman is open for lunch and dinner.

Best burger I've ever had

I don't say this lightly - the braker burger is the best burger I've ever had. We've decided whenever we are within 50 miles, we are coming back. AMAZING!!!!

Wonderful burgers, fantastic fries. Great place to eat. Don't have room for a party bigger than 6 so we had to split into 2 tables. Small table was served and done before large table was served .

The Brakeman has the BEST burgers in the valley. Take your appetite, because they are big as well. Each burger is made per order, and all are very tasty.

The food is fantastic! The service could use some help. The first time I went my card got charged for the whole table I was with, even though we told the waitress who was paying for what (there was only three of us).

We went one Monday evening recently and, much to our surprise and deep disappointment, they were closed! Fortunately we had another opportunity to try - that Wednesday for lunch - and they were open.

Excellent food, but bring an appetite or share the plate; a lot of food, and way more fries that one person should eat.

The burgers were the best that my husband and I have ever had and the service was excellent. Nice family business and the meat is ground fresh daily. We would go back again to this cafe any time, any day!
