Best Burger in Mountain View

The burger tastes absolutely amazing. I live in San Francisco and have easy access to top of the line burgers, THIS place rivals even the best of the city!

it's ok, nothing special

i'm a big hamburger fan, i eat burgers at least 3 or 4 times a week. this place is ok, definitely a solid burger but nothing to rave about. fries are so so and the place itself is a little shabby. ok to go once in a while if you feel like having a ""charcoal grilled"" burger, but don't expect anything mind blowing.

Great burgers, avoid the chili, expect trouble parking

Let's make this simple:\r
Burgers: 10\r
Fries: 6\r
Milkshakes: 6\r
Chili: 1\r
Parking: 3\r
Bottom-line, go for the burgers and skip the rest. Consider dropping someone off to pick up your order and taking it home since the parking is very limited. The burgers really are charcoal grilled and taste freaking amazing. The South of the Border burger is actually spicy - most salsas in this area end up being boring and bland. Strongly recommend.\r
The chili is awful. Avoid

I double-dare you to find a better hamburger ANYWHERE!

We are new to the area and stopped in to Clarke's out of curiosity. What a find!!! Hamburgers grilled on a charcoal grill! Better than my backyard hamburgers and those are fantastic. Cooked to perfection. Mushrooms are killer and many cheeses and toppings to choose from. \r
I brought a burger home to hubby and he loved the fries so much, it took him a while to get to the burger. When he did, he was amazed. \r
Took my son there while he's visiting from out of town. His words were ""Aw
...view moreesome"" and ""Oh, my God"".view less

Unbelievably good!

I do not have a doubt in my mind that this is the best burger joint in Mountain View! I had to write a review because those people reviewing Clarke's Charcoal Broiler and giving it a below average or average score obviously haven't tried their double burger with cheese. This place is awesome, can not even compare it to a burger at McDonalds or Burger King, it?s like it's a whole different burger. Trust me I come here every weekend to get the double burger with cheese and it doesn't dis...view moreappoint. The only down side is the parking. So do yourself a favor and try this place out, you won't regret it.view less

My Review

The hamburgers are delicious. They have speciality burgers in which you can build your own burger and I love it! The enviroment is average, but suits the type of food offered. Service depends on who is being hired at the time, and like any other restaurant, can be bad or good.

I miss this place

I used to live walking distance from this place and I miss it. They offer one of the best burgers ever, great fries, chocolate shakes, good prices, great service, and more. Actually, just writing this review makes me want to have one of their burgers! I used to order the cheeseburger with mushrooms, fries, and a shake or even the vegie burger was hard to beat. Whenever I'm in the Bay Area I try to make it back to get my fix!

49er burger

Much like the 49ers football team, this burger was disappointing and overpriced. For almost $8, this burger was small, and not loaded with mushrooms as stated. The taste was ok, but didn't quite live up to the hype. Should be renamed the John York Burger.

I wasn't impressed

I was expecting more.....the hamburger patty didn't have enough just didn't make it.

I have been going to Clarke's burger since I lived in Mountain View in the 70's. It is and I hope it will continue to be one of the BEST places to get a great hamburger. I now live down in San Diego On one of my trips up to Sacramento I stopped in San Jose to see some friends, and made sure I stopped at Clarkes on my way out of town. I wiould like to have one down here.
