“Good But Not Great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013 via mobile

This is very good burger Resturant - but not the best. I got there early before the lunch rush so my order was ready by the time my credit receipt was signed. This may explain why the fries were tepid, with no crunch to them. The burger was very good, the bun was not too yeasty, the meat was very good quality. This is not an easy place to find, stuck as it is in the middle of the silicon of Silicon Valley. Habitue's seemed to be techies and nerds. I would go again if my lunch group decided to go, but I wouldn't, "drive 5 miles for one of their smiles"!

“The Best Burger in the Bay Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

I love coming to St. John's Bar & Grill and my absolute favorite is burger is beg for mercy burger yummy and spicy .
If you are in the area it a must place .
Great service ,great food and reasonable price and small business owned .
They have indoor and outdoor seating,great beer draft and not draft beer selection.
The place always packed, the line start forming 30 min before they open each day which remind of going to costco at opening time as well and i think that speaks for it self.

“Tasty, but ...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Good is tasty and tempting, but not the healthiest in the world. Visitonly when your urge for grease outweighs your common sense!

“Great Burgers - 1/2 on Saturdays!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

I travel to Sunnyvale about twice a month and make it a point to stop at St John's whenever humanly possible. They have great burgers, and when they are half price they taste even better! The burger patties are huge but the flavor of the meat clearly imparts freshness and quality. My favorite is the Guac-Bacon followed closely by the Roasted Pepper and Jack burger. I love their garlic fries too but when I am on low carb I get my burgers lettuce wrapped. They give you so much crispy lettuce it is like getting a free side-salad.
