We’re always on a quest to find that perfect hamburger. And our latest favorite place doesn’t disappoint. Not only are these 1/2-lb fresh, all-natural gourmet Angus Beef burgers grilled to juicy perfection, they come served with all the trimmings on a deliciously light gourmet sesame seed (or whole wheat bun, pictured above) delivered fresh daily by Le Boulanger). And wait until you taste their “can’t-have-just-one” Sweet Potato Fries – they’re killer!
Crispy and perfectly seasoned, you can enjoy Sweet Potato Fries plain, salted, sprinkled with cinnamon (our favorite), or for those of you with a sweet tooth, topped with cinnamon AND sugar. Oh, and one more thing… their huge side of thick Beer-Battered Onion Rings are exceptional! Getting hungry yet?
Godfather’s Burger Lounge is located in Belmont, California (about a 45-minute drive south of San Francisco). Yes, there are so many good burger places all over the S.F. Bay Area, but we think It’s well worth the drive if you crave a great burger, especially if you happen to be down on the peninsula for business or pleasure.
Besides their great hamburgers, sweet potato fries and onion rings, we also love their thick yummy Ice-Cream Milk Shakes, made with local organic milk (Chocolate Milk Shake pictured below) – a perfect complement to the burgers.
We’ve saved the best for last – their yummy desserts! Our favorite is the Chocolate Brownie Decadence (pictured below) – the warm chocolate brownie just melts in your mouth. Godfather’s Oreo Martini Sundae is a must-try, especially if you’re an Oreo lover – did you know that the Oreo is the world’s most popular cookie?
Add a dash of great ambiance, buzz, and friendly service, and you have all the ingredients for a perfect burger joint. Be prepared to wait during peak dining times – we like to grab a seat at the counter during lunch. Reservations are recommended for Friday and Saturday nights. Can’t wait to go back again… maybe we’ll see you there 🙂
