I've been coming here for 10 years, on and off. And there's been a steady decline in service and a steady increase in prices. A burger, fries, and drink will cost about $14, which is comparable to a full service hamburger place. And the service...More

I am not thrilled by the Burgers at Nation's. I would rate these average at best--average on flavor, not really moist. What is good here are the pies. But probably not enough to make me go here again.

No frills burger joint with awesome homemade pies. I love their banana cream pies. Their burgers are ginormous. Just wish they'd serve their burgers with shredded lettuce rather than huge leaves

These are mediocre burgers at best. There were few customers on the premises when I visited but still I had to wait an inordinate amount of time to order. The burger was cooked to order but it just wasn't worth the wait or the price....More

This Nation's Giant Hamburger location has been renovated. So the interior is clean and pleasant. There is plenty of parking on the premises. The burgers, fries, shakes and breakfast combos are tasty, healthy portion sizes and a good value.

Better than most fast food hamburger joints. They are known for their pies, but we did not have as burger and fries were more than enough. You do pay a bit more here, but quality over quantity is our method of judgment.

I love to go here every so often for their bacon cheese hamburger. Yummers. Get it with lettuce and tomato and a side of fries. "to die for"! If you have any room left, don't miss out on a piece of their famous pies. Strawberry...More

Nation's is, of course, a chain, and there are probably five of them along the extent of San Pablo Avenue. But this one on Central Avenue is a good solid visit, and offers breakfast, lunch, or dinner on YOUR scale, from epic to moderate. The...More
