The REAL Oscars is gone-who took its place???? – Been eating Oscars burgers since 1978--not everyday but about once a month or so-very good.. until fairly recentlly---what happened? that nice woody charcoal barbque flavor is gone-the meat tastes cheap-the buns have been dissapointing-the lettuce "old"-I usuly get my burgers at the drive up-can't see what might have changed. did they change owners? March 2, 2008 was my last burger-and it will be my last one forever until I hear others say "Oscars is back!" As my friends say the same as I do now--VERY disappointing. At first i thought it was my imagination-several months ago--but after several more burgers and my wifes opinion and that of friends--we really feel something must have changed. Bland-tasteless--not fresh. When the "original" Oscars is back--I'll be back.
A great old-fashioned college burger joint – This 40+ year old burger joint offers a damned fine charcoal-grilled burger with all the fixings for $3.65 (doubles are around $5.00). They're just honestly good burgers. The fries aren't all that, but they're served in a huge heap and always freshly fried (from frozen). Don't go here if you're squeamish about cleanliness (the tables are usually pretty grimy), but do go for great burgers, decent fries in generous portions, big, thick shakes, and even decent hotdogs. Also on the menu are steak and grilled chicken sandwiches, BLT's and grilled cheese. The old fashioned drive-thru window, a quirky throw-back to the old days, is an amusing time-saver for lazy people like me. While for a few years there was an nasty, angry woman taking orders, there is now a really nice guy -- maybe the latest owner? -- who is awfully pleasant for working in such a greasy, smoky and hot environment. This is one of the few old Berkeley establishments still around.
Yummy burgers – I love their cheeseburgers, they are better than ANY fast food restaurant. And although their fries aren't exactly as addicting as those of McDonald's, they're still quite good. And their shakes are quite tasty as well.
