    So true. Tried the bacon cheesy true burger and would come back for it again. Sauce is good, patty is cooked well, and bun is nice and crispy on the edges.

    Love the panko-crusted cheese-stuffed mushroom burger and garlic fries. Wash it down with a custom shake (coffee with Twinkie mix-ins)

    I think I just found my favorite burger in Oakland. Wow. I love how customizable the shakes are... make mine a malted! 👌🏼

    Very smashed burgers - juicy, really craftily done. Great milkshakes too. All around great spot, feels like a community joint

    True Burger Deluxe.... (Feel like Martin in the movt "LIFE", takin' a bite of the pie!) Burned my mouth, the cheese was too damn HOT! Other than that, I think I have a Valentines Crusher!

    Go deluxe: the burger with a deep-fried-smoked-mozzarella-injected on top. Have a whole dill pickle on the side to digest!

    Cheesy True Burger was awesome. Fresh made patty and not over done fries. I wilm go back to kill my burger craving.

    Probably one of the best burgers in the bay. The mushroom burger is amazing.

    Definitely try their specialty shakes. I had a Butterfinger shake that was heavenly. Ask about their Twinkie Shake too

    Get the Deluxe. Be mind blown by their fried portobello mushroom stuffed with cheese.

    This place use to have great cheese fries... They removed them from the menu, raised all the prices, and basically ruined a great place :(

    Really delicious burgers, super bomb milkshakes, crispy fries. A bit pricey!

    Cheesy True Burger is great, but not sure it's worth the price (although that bun is killer). Plain fries are crazy generic though.

    Not quite in Shake Shack's league, but a solid neighborhood staple for sure. Cashier recommended garlic mayo for regular fries and now I can do the same.

    Make your own black and white. Vanilla shake plus chocolate sauce. Dumb to pay extra but so good.

    Best burger in the east bay. Better than a $12 burger at a fancy place.

    Nice burger! Couldn't tell if it was aioli or mayo, but if you don't want it you havebto say so. Otherwise awesome burger. Fries just ok.

    Fried portobello, stuffed with cheese, on your burger.
  • Ana Gabriela H.
    The cheese fries have a unique ability of staying hot but still so delicious. Just wait a minute before diving in, or else your tongue may face molten cheese!

    Careful: those fries are already salted. But where else could you get a banana coffee chocolate shake with'em? Wifi seems to be dead, though.

    Custom milkshake: vanilla with orange mix-in. You got yourself a creamsicle shake right there, buddy.
