Nations Giant Hamburgers - Livermore, CA

Nations Giant Hamburgers in Livermore is another in the NorCal Nations chain. This store is a little newer than the one I reviewed in Fremont. But like other Nations, the burgers are consistently good.

I walked in on a Friday around 1 PM and was greeted warmly by the staff. I ordered at the counter and took my red Naugahyde seat at a booth. When my name was called I retrieved my meal at the counter. My bacon cheeseburger ($5.70) was nicely wrapped in white Nations paper. Sitting beside were salty medium cut french fries ($1.50).

The white bun was toasted and fresh. Inside sat a hot fresh patty of beef with melted American cheese and crisp bacon, lots of fresh lettuce, tomato and onion. Mayo generously covered one half of the bun. For $5.70 this place is a consistently good bargain. The fries were hot, salty and tasty as well.

If a Nations sits nearby, there is no reason to hit one of the big guys for lunch. For the price it is a great, tasty bargain.

Haven't tried the Hard Rock yet. I have reviewed a few chains, like Nations and IN-N-Out, but generally try to hit the local spots. Next time I am near a Hard Rock, i will give it a try. SRK

Too bad you didn't take First St. through Downtown Livermore at the other end and find John's Char Burger. I just moved here in January and immediately went on a quest to find a great burger joint near home. This was the first place I tried and stopped looking after that. Nothing fancy, just good ingredients and cooked perfectly, every time. Just remember your cash as they don't take cards.

great tip on John's Char Burger. Next time I am in Livermore I will check it out. I was just passing through and could find any good independent places on my iPhone. Need to develop a burger locator App!

Ooooh... seriously disappointed in you right now. :-P
After your last post about Nations in Fremont, I attempted to guide you over to John's Char Burger in Livermore instead. Even provided you with the address in the comments! You missed the boat my friend. Better get back there!

the nations bacon cheeseburger tastes good without any dressing (mustard and mayo)... when they do put mayo, they put way too much of it... and i will co-sign for john's char burger also. that's a spot you need to try. the "super burger" with bacon and cheese has alot of flavor.
