Visited here while I was in town on business. It's not a fancy place, just counter service offering burgers, chicken sandwiches, and cheese steaks along with lots of different sides and a nice selection of craft beer. They have a large patio outside that looked nice. I would go again next time I'm in town.

St John's is a great example for what it is...a meat and beer serving sports bar. Lines are longest at week day lunches and after kid's sporting events. A continuous stream of soccer and baseball game broadcasts are complemented by a video screen free outdoor patio. My favorites are their cheesesteaks which use real cheese rather than Cheese Wiz and... More

I wouldn't say it's the best burger like their ad says, but it is pretty good. My favorite is the teriyaki burger with pineapple slice in there, sweet and salty and juicy. Good portion too.

Delicious burgers... you'll be a happy eater. This is not a drive in restaurant with a cheap scrawny burger but a full meal. Go and enjoy the hustle and bustle of this small business.

This is a homey restaurant with delicious pulled pork sandwiches. If you're looking to catch up on some sports, especially soccer, come here to watch!

They have great burgers and a very good price on appetizers during happy hour. They also have kegs of Pliny one night a week. Good casual spot.

Close to bigger road, noisy outdoor place, dirty rugs inside, worn - the whole place screams fat and unhealthy food...but of course if you like a cheap greasy place this is definitely for you. The taste of the burger was actually not that bad but there is absolutely no finesse close to these places...just a pile of food on a... More

Great burgers (beef or chicken) with a variety of sauces, chips, fries, etc. They have a great happy hour with finger food, chips, and a wide variety of beers. Great outdoor seating area as well as indoor seating to watch sports. A great place to hang out with friends in Silicon Valley, CA.

St. John's has been a Sunnyvale staple for decades. Their Tuesday Tri-Tip grill is always sold out, and they feature specialty beers on occasion that sell out fast. The walk-up and place your order lines can get long at peak times, but the food is always top-notch. Only reason for a '4' instead of a '5' is that they clean-up... More
