Hamburger in Alameda?

Hunicsz Apr 2, 2008 05:43 PM

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?

    Alameda Fats posted this.
    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.

      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. http://www.the-newzealander.com/dinne...

      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. http://papporestaurant.com/menu.htm

      Further afield (Berkeley), there have been raves lately about the burger at Maritime East. http://www.maritimeeast.com/menu.htm

      Feel better soon!

          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.
