The Albatross Pub
1822 San Pablo Ave, Berkeley, CA 94702
this place is great! Not only is it a bar, but you can play games there too! It's not just for those who want to get wasted, well, you could but this place is also for those who want to hang out with a drink or play darts. Although those who play darts and are wasted could be dangerous to others. Regardless, its tough getting a table here because everyone who is there will be there for a couple of hours.

This place is really good but just unhealthy. I try to be healthy but if I don't then this is the place to go. They give you huge portions of rice, meat and salad. My favorite is the chicken katsu with double rice. I don't care for the salad and if you are eating here veggies isn't on your mind. The chicken is nicely fried and the bigger portions are moist but the end pieces can be crispier. The sauce they give you is also really good and I always pour it over the rice and meat. I cannot finish it and I consider myself a big eater.

Panda express is a cheap place to get chinese food. It is something I would crave once in a while, but definitely not more than once a month. The portions are pretty big so even a 2 item meal would be plenty for someone like myself. I usually get the tofu and either a veggie/meat platter. I prefer the fried rice to the noodles just becasue I think it has more flavor. It doesn't get too crowded there and if it does the line moves fairly quickly.

The burgers are good, and so are they fries and such, but the prices are way overpriced. There are no meal deals for them so basically everything is a la carte. I can't bring myself to pay almost 13-14 dollars for a burger, fries and a drink when there are other establishments that can give me the same thing for half the price. If you just have to have it, by all means, but if you just need a burger I would suggest Rose's Cafe or In and Out for a better deal.
