Alameda >Nation's Giant Hamburgers
Everything is great but the Atmosphere and Neighbors.
I love the food, the prices, the location and even the employees. Nation's itself rocks!
Only one star due to their neighbors. The problem is the nightclub "Island Paradise Club" located next door.
I would be a far more frequent Nation's patron if I wasn't constantly being aggressively hounded by the club's boys trying to pick me up or feeling threaten by the club's girls for just getting the boys attention.
Plus the music is so loud in the club you cannot hold a conversation in the restaurant as you cannot hear anyone speaking at a normal volume.
Hard to enjoy your food when you just do not feel safe and your ears are being assaulted.
I wish the Island Paradise Club would close. That place makes Webster Street feel like a ghetto and Nation's off limits after 10:00 PM even though they are open until 3:00 AM.
Great Breakfast too, not just a burger Joint. Many people just assume that Nations is all about the Burger, this is far from true. Nations makes a darn good breakfast and if in the area I think it would be worth your while to stop by.
Bay Area restaurant chain serves fresh, cooked-to-order American classics hot off the grill..
Since 1952, diners have been enjoying this nostalgic restaurant's tradition of high-quality comfort food at affordable prices. While they are best known for their signature three-quarter-pound "giant" burger complete with a heaping pile of fixings, Nation's has expanded its menu over the years to include sandwiches, hot dogs, pies and hearty breakfast staples like omelets and pancakes. Health-conscious diners may opt for lower-fat choices like the chicken or salmon burger.
Simply the Best. I've been coming to Nation's for about 15 years now, and I can honestly say that it is without a doubt the best burger in the entire Bay Area. Nothing too fancy, just a juicy, mouth watering burger. I can't speak highly enough about Nation's. It was good to see they were voted # 1 for hamburgers. Gives me faith that the Bay Area, and these Citysearch users know a great burger when they taste one.
