Hamburger in Alameda?

Hi guys. Wondering if you can help me out. I had a minor surgical procedure today and am feeling kind of crummy. I think a cheeseburger and fries and/or onion rings is the only answer. We just moved to Alameda about a month ago, and are currently figuring out the dining situation. A site search didn't really yield anything. I know there's a Nation's on Webster, but I feel like we could do better (although Nation's has the advantage of having pie. . .).
Anyone have any favorites?

    Season To Taste at the Alameda Marketplace on Park Street and Buena Vista
    prepares a very juicy, succulent specimen that's comprised of prime beef from the
    neighboring butcher and freshly-baked ciabatta from the bakery next door. Nicely
    grilled medium-rare and topped sparingly with a pungent, bleu cheese aioli, well-carmelized onions, crisp romaine and a slice of sweet heirloom tomato, it's about a five-napkin burger-juices flowing down your arms and splattering all over your shirt, that sort of great stuff .
    Season To Taste also includes some crispy,crunchy.savory homemade chips with it.
    Worth a trip to Alameda.

    And you are already there. Hope it still is.

    1. People like the burgers at New Zealander, which is just a block or so from Nations. It has the advantage of a full bar! And instead of pie, you might like the Pavlova.

      For higher-end, Pappo, on Central near Park, has a burger on its lunch menu, but not for dinner, though you could ask them if it's possible.

      Further afield (Berkeley), there have been raves lately about the burger at Maritime East.

      Feel better soon!

      1. you can get sliders and some amazing white truffle french fries at hob nob on Park St.

        1. Thanks for the suggestions, guys. Shortly after posting I passed out on the couch, and my husband picked up some stuff from Nation's. Not the best, but surprisingly satisfying (don't quote me though; this could just be the painkillers talking).

          Looking forward to trying these suggestions in the very near future.
