A coworker bribed me out of the office with pictures from yelp... they looked like a perfect burger, fries, shake. Well, over the walk, I was convinced to get them all and even one up myself with chili cheese fries.
The burger was the best I've had in a while. The "special sauce" has got to have some tiny bit of roasted garlic in it - not enough to overpower, but just enough to elevate the meat. Great size, the bun was just right. Just enough fixings, but if you need more, there's a few adders available.
The chili cheese fries were pretty darn good. I might not order them again as I had total food coma after lunch, but perhaps this would be mitigated if I had shared them with anyone. :-)
Shakes are always a good thing, but I rarely order them. I'm pregnant and was feeling rather indulgent, so I went for it this time. Your options are Chocolate or Vanilla, but you can select from a variety of mix-ins to customize. My Choc Peanut Butter shake was about as close to drinking a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup as one can get. SO GOOD.
This is a clean place, with decent seating (helps to be early) and really good food. A great lunch spot for those of us who work in Oakland. Great food, and really solid value ($15 for more than I could eat). Aside from craving another visit all weekend (I'm going to chalk it up to pregnancy cravings), the only problem with this place is that I propably *happily* consumed a full day's worth of calories during lunch. But once in a while... that's okay!
