I use to go here quite often, but it's been a few years. Just recently I took some friends from work and either it's changed or I have. Fries seemed a bit soft and the beef in the cheese steak was over done. And the noise was obnoxious. Looks like there isn't any acoustical damping and the conversations just bounce... More

St. John's has amazing burgers, including chicken burgers and other sandwiches (sausage, etc.). They also have a daily bbq special. The last time I went, I had their Beg for Mercy Chicken. While it was not spicy enough for me, the flavor was great and it would be spicy for those not used to it. The sides are standard but... More

We met relatives here on a busy Friday night. Not too much of a wait for a larger table and the food selection of burgers and cheese steak sandwiches. Come on, a Mole Cheese Steak sandwich and garlic fries? What's not to love.

This is a lively, casual burger place. The food was good and the mushroom burger I had was excellent. I haven't had such a tasty burger in a very long time. It was juicy and the beef was good. I also tasted their garlic fries, sweet potato fries and Buffalo wings. Unfortunately, I came late and ate those cold but... More

The food is OK. You order at a counter and get a pager to come back for your food. You go to the bar to order your beer. If it's crowded you worry about someone stealing your table while you go back and forth. The chicken sandwich I had was mediocre. I went back to Portland and got an "ok"... More

Working nearby and stopped by with a colleague that lives in the area. I got the classic cheeseburger with an extra patty and WOW it was good. Add to the burger a selection of catchup and it really hits the spot. I'll be back.

My family has been going here for over 30 years. We no longer live in the bay area but it is a tradition when we get down that way. Lots of basic food, made well, fun atmosphere. Not a fancy gourmet atmosphere but fun, fast and tasty. Easy place to bring kids of all ages as well as have a... More
