My family has been going to Main Street Burgers for a number of years. It has also been one of the favorite places that my wife’s mother likes to go when she is in town. But the last few visit it has felt like the quality of food has slipped some. On our last visit the patty in my Nirvana... More

We had the bacon & blue burger and BBQ burger. Very, very good. So big we used a fork and knife. Good service. Mid range prices. Fries etc not included with burger. Good place for a quick meal. Would recommend.

We really enjoyed our burger at this place. Good fun atmosphere and the hush puppies were really tasty also! Looking forward to returning next time I'm in the mood for a good burger. Enjoy!

Cute spot at the end of LG downtown. The pictures of juicy burgers actually swayed us away from another place nearby where we had originally planned to dine. Walk-in straight to the order counter and most of the menu items are written on the wall. We tried the Thai chicken bowl and the bacon & chicken ciabatta sandwich. WOW, the... More

Good burgers, but the French fries were only average. We had the California Burger (complete with delicious avocado) and would order it again.

You can get a burger on just about any street in America. What you can't find at all these places is the wonderful service I received at Main Street Burgers. The General Manager was a class act, and extremely intent on making our meal enjoyable. Even without his wonderful staff, the BBQ burger and garlic fries spoke for themselves. Appetizing,... More

We used to frequent this place many years ago when it was the cheapest eats on the whole University avenue close to downtown Los Gatos. Visited it again this evening for old times sake. It isn't the cheapest any more, but the burgers aren't bad. Mind, they aren't great either: the patties are very well done, way too salty and... More

We stumbled upon this place because we were lost, best wrong turn I ever took. The burgers here are incredible,delicious,amazing fresh and made to order and I wish I was eating one right now. If you ever take a wrong turn and end up in Los Gatos stop and have a burger here you won't regret it.

Overall...it was a very good experience. The brioche bun is perfectly soft, but holds together well; there are a lot of ingredients to choose from for whatever your taste; the onion rings are cooked and seasoned nicely; the meat was perfectly seasoned; and the chocolate shake is one of the better I've ever had. My only complaints are that they... More

Located in beautiful downtown Los Gatos, this could be an awesome destination restaurant. Unfortunately, the opportunity is squandered on very average faire. We decided to try Main Street Burgers after a full morning of hiking in Felton. For a restaurant touting burgers in its name, we had high hopes for juicy, tasty burgers. The 1/3 and 1/4 lb. burgers seem... More
