Decent enough burgers. Pricey when you have to add the french fries. Always enough areas to sit. In a pinch when wanting burgers and don't want to travel this is a decent enough place.

When we first walked in, the man behind the counter was on his cell phone, texting or playing a game. He took our order then proceeded back to his phone. Maybe the new era but definitely not professional, in my opinion. My husband's pastrami sandwich and my veggie burger were good, better than fast food but not restaurant style. My... More

Wow what a meal. A massive burger which is the tastiest I've had in a very long time. We come here on a regular basis and it's because it's so damn good!

Clean, family run place. Beef, turkey, veggie burgers are all good. They're cooked on a grill, so there's a nice crustiness. Fries are nothing special - poured frozen out of a big bag. Good seating. Easy to park. Nice place to go before or after your grocery run to Trader Joe's next door. Good portion, fresh ingredients, custom made to... More

"Best" burger seems like a bit of a stretch for anyone, but I will say that it's better than many burgers. If I had to compare it to a chain I'd say it's way way better than McDonalds, Burger King or anything like that, better than In 'n Out and probably around the same as "Five Guys" or something like...

It's just a simple burger and it is so good because it is simple. There's nothing fancy about this place. If you're on your way to Napa or in town to visit and you're craving a burger you definitely need to stop here

I went here with my family while visiting and these burgers are amazing. We got a side of onion rings and rosemary garlic fries. Yummy!!

Best Burger lives up to its name. In a small shopping center next to Trader Joe's you will find the best burgers, fries and onion rings. They always cook to order, perfectly. The milkshakes are so thick you need a spoon. If you crave a burger, this is the "best".
