Dining options: Lunch, Outdoor Seating, Seating, Takeout
Description: Just for a GREAT, juicy, tasty Burger and REAL Potato French Fries (Large cut fries), try Mendo Burgers. Jeff has owned it since 2007--but it is HIDDEN AWAY--down a walkpath between the Shoe Store & Bakery on Lansing. A hidden away gem for a good burger--nothing eclectic, fancy, etc. Has Vegetable, Turkey, Beef Burgers. $7.95 and Large Fries $3.95. Everything in Mendocino is Pricey for Food--but we wanted just a good, juicy, tasty Burger, and we got it at Jeff's little hide-away called Mendo Burgers. He is trying to get better signage for his business because he is located in the back of another business--the Bakery. Good luck to him on that because this place the Locals all know about--but visitors need to be able to find him too--especially Families.Not everyone wants a fancy, expensive, eclectic meal all the time...

“a bit of a disappointing eatery”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

You can count on a $8-$15 burger but may be hankering more for an In-n-out after you get your bill based not only on price but quality. After the grease coagulates on your upper lip and you're facing a quip and nasty look from the owner, it may make you wince and ask yourself 'was it worth it?". Service is slow, bathrooms could use a serious review on cleanliness. Bring your Rolaids.

“Good burger if you can get it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

They have great fries, altho the burgers are a bit small for such pricey food. Sometimes they run out of food. My husband and I went one afternoon and were turned away "we're down to two meat patties, so we're closing.....' We only wanted 2 patties! The grocery is only 3 doors down! It's good if you can get it.

“Slow to serve & Cash Only”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

Burger was fine, but out of fish & chips and grilled cheese (no bread) so options for those not wanting burgers was limited. Chili cheese fries were very small portion considering $7.95 price. Day after Thanksgiving & sunny day so place was busy, and order took over 30 minutes to arrive. Policy on no credit cards accepted wasn't apparent until reaching font of line. Won't be returning to this establishment. Too many other good choices.

“To be fair did not go because they were closed.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

Who the heck closes before 630 on a Saturday night?! Geeze, just for that poor rating. Seriously, dinner time and seeing people scratching their heads wondering...did they go out of business or just really close early on a Saturday?

“Your basic burger.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

We had a bleu cheese burger and a hot dog...basic stuff...not expensive, but not a great value for price paid. Bring lots of cash; this place and many others don't like visa/mc.
