My wife and I, we now live in Michigan, often sit and discuss the things we miss the most about living in the Bay area. Always at the top of our list is, Nations Burgers. We alway...


No way does Nation's deserve the top spot. The burgers are low quality, the american cheese they use is disgusting, its not that cheap, and fast food its not. Yes, its open 24hr...

I like Nations........... 10/24/2008

My first time at Nation's was great...I could not believe how big those burgers were...I was like this is for one person? I enjoyed it though..I also really like there pies and i think there prices are pretty good for what you get...I recommend this to people... more

All night baby! 6/3/2008

24 hours who can beat that. After a long night grabbing a burger, fries, or breakfast it amazing. The food is good, but make sure you tell them to go easy on the mayo they tend to really slather it on. The fries are salted to perfection. The eggs are ok, they use american cheese and I'm not really a fan. The pies are good too. My room mate used to get them all the time and they are delicious. Pros: all night Cons: the people that work there seem a little depressed more

Whats Going on with the CheeseCake? 4/21/2008

Hello, I have been a lover of Nations cheesecake for years. But for the past couple years, the cheesecake just doesn't taste the same. It took me a minute to figure out why, but I finally realized that it's the lack of graham cracker crust. Nations has gotten skimpy with the graham cracker crust. I remember when the crust use to be thick and it really complimented all that thick cheese. Now there is too much cheese and not enough crust. The cheese weighs down on the thin crust and makes it wet looking and less enjoyable. So I stopped buying the cheesecake so often, and sometimes I throw it away because it just taste nasty without the thick graham crust. Please go back to the thick crust on the cheesecake. Thank you. more

good burgers!!!! 11/30/2007

nation's keeps their menu very simple. they have hamburgers and cheeseburgers and also a breakfast menu. nation's is also known for his pies. the banana cream pie is the best! more

Nation's Hamburgers invented the ""perfect"" burger 7/11/2006

My wife and I, we now live in Michigan, often sit and discuss the things we miss the most about living in the Bay area. Always at the top of our list is, Nations Burgers. We always went to the Pleasanton store. Pros: Best tasting, freshest hamburger, anywhere! Cons: Not enough seating in some of their stores more

Great burgers, pie, and fries 6/25/2006

Really great hamburgers. Ask for less dressing, unless you like a 1/2 cup of mayo on your burger. They do grilled or raw onions on burgers, and I like each for different reasons. Solid steak fries, nothing fancy but very good. Pies are good and they have tons of flavors (why pies?) I have been to both the Daly City location as well as the Oakland version near Jack London square, and I love them both. As far as fast-food burgers go, I would put Nation's on the top of the stack. more

Beats out Fuddruckers! 3/14/2006

It's the biggest, tastiest hamburger I've eaten. Great flavor overall; the onions really makes the burger taste so delicious! They've also got a great milkshake! However, if you ever visit LA then ya gotta try a Tommy burger drenched in their Chili con carne or a juicy Fatburger. Too bad we can't get any good burgers in New Jersey. Pros: Fresh and tasty, Clean, Good service more

Best hamburger ever! 3/13/2006

One of the things I miss most since moving from California is Nations! Everytime I visit I make sure to stop there! Everyone should try the cheeseburger. Pros: QUALITY, CLEANLINESS Cons: CROWDED more

Nation's Rocks! 12/12/2005

Nation's is a bay area institution, period. I've taken out of town friends there on many occassions and they have always raved about how damn good the hambuger is there. The breakfast is equally as good, and although I've only had a bite from one of their pies, I can see why so many people are there ordering and picking them up. My brothers, friends, and I have been going to this place for over 10 years b/c it always delivers. It's #1 for a reason. more

Not so cheap for the quality. 7/21/2005

No way does Nation's deserve the top spot. The burgers are low quality, the american cheese they use is disgusting, its not that cheap, and fast food its not. Yes, its open 24hrs and when you're desperate its good but if you're sober you can tell this is not grade a beef. The pies however, are yummy, stick to dessert. But if you must eat at Nation's be suure to order your burger with grilled onions or you'll have half of a raw onion stacked on your burger. Pros: Open 24hrs Cons: Price, Bad Quality, Slow Service more

Best Burger in Bay Area!!! 5/24/2005

I recently saw on this site that users voted Nation's one of the best burgers in the Bay Area. As a burger afficianado, I had to check it out for myself. I had never heard of Nation's until I saw them on CS. I drove down there on a Saturday and had ""The Original"". It is as perfect a hamburger as I've ever had. Just a good old fashioned mouth watering burger. I'm glad I found this place. There's a reason they're voted the highest rated hamburger in the Bay Area. more

Fantastic!!! 5/15/2005

This place serves the JUCIEST, FRESHEST hamburgers around. Customize your burger with cheese, green chiles or chili! Try the Salmon Burger, Chicken Sandwich & Harvester! more

Best Hamburger Ever 7/8/2004

I love eating hamburgers and this is the best burger joint I have been to. Try the Cheeseburger with bacon. Yum Yum Pros: Big Burgers more

great place for a late night bite 12/31/2002

at night, nation's can be really crowded. they keep cranking out juicy greasy burgers until the wee hours of the morning. the milkshakes are really thick and yummy. the pies are always delish. but you'll probably need some luck if you're going to find a seat in the late hours though.. more

The best fresh, juicy & cheap bigburgers 8/28/2002

These Hamburger have it all... They are chep, juice and fresh... The fries are also very good and fresh!!! Pros: inexpensive, good parking, fresh & juicy Cons: none, none, none more

Fresh! Fresh! Fresh! 8/8/2002

Delicious Hamburgers with lots of fresh produce. Two huge slabs of Onion, Three thick slices of tomato and whole leaf of lettuce, not the shredded junk other places serve. Nation's is big, they don't even carry a puny 1/4 pound hamburger. Definitely one of the finest hamburgers ever. Pros: Made to Order, Large Portions, Excellent Value Cons: Little Wait, Crowded more
