“Nothing fancy, just great burgers”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Clarke's was exactly as billed - nothing fancy, but outstanding hamburgers and a pleasant, casual atmosphere. We were looking for a simple, quick dinner out and Clarke's met our goal. There are plenty of other choices on the menu, but burgers grilled over a charcoal fire are the centerpiece. They have plenty of "fixins" for people who like to pile on, and fresh salads as well. The seating area is very casual but clean, and would be great for a family with children or a group of friends. There is also plenty of outdoor seating available. We will definitely make this a regular stop next time we come to Mountain View.

“Landmark burger stand!”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

Been coming here for years. Moved out of the area but always come here when I'm in town. this is not your burger on a grill type place. real charcoal grilled burgers. Fresh ingredients, excellent condiment station for all the fixings. Great fries and outstanding shakes. I always go for a burger so I can't comment on the rest of the menu but why bother? Never disappointed with the double cheeseburgers. Small place though and parking can be a b**ch. some outside picnic tables but be prepared to deal with some flies.

this place is a classic and should be patronized just because it's not In and Out or some other chain joint!! (although I do love in and out burger too)

“The Very Best”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

I consider Clarke's and Kirk's the best burger joints in the greater south Bay. I give Clarke's the edge on sentimentality if nothing else. Not cheap but worth saving your pennies for. One of the finer splurges in the casual dining universe.

“Love coming here for a good burger”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

This place has been around for a while, and man, what a good burger/chicken sandwich they make. I think it is the sauce. Throw in a milkshake, and oh boy! I don't get up here anymore now that changed jobs, and sure miss this place. I'll have to make it back again soon.

“Great after softball”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

We come here as a treat after softball games or practice. The joint is unpretentious, the burgers are great, the staff kind.
