Love their Persian burger sandwich! (lamb)This is I think their only Halal item in the menu.

Delicious spicy chicken burger looks humble but contains so much flavor. I haven’t tried their beef burgers bc all the other options are so good and tempting. Love that they have eggplant and other veggie options.

Bongo Burger has the best humus on their Mediterranean plate! I also love their sweet potato fries and their American Berger (grass fed beef) with Grilled Onions is my favorite/ Their Onion Rings are also bomb! Usually really quick without long lines and usually easy parking! Prices are reasonable and staff is friendly!

The black bean burgers here are fantastic. We did take out and just ate In the car. Couldn't wait to get home to eat it. The staff was nice. They wore masks and gloves. It wasn't at all crowded because we went 20 mins before closing time. We called ahead and placed the order so they had it ready for pick up. It is quite a long drive but it's totally worth it!

Best shishkabab sandwiches this side of Iran. And the burgers are to die for. And the falafels are out of this world. A legendary Berkeley gem. And so inexpensive!

Customer service was underwhelming, the woman who took the order was a little rude, the soda was old and the black bean burger that I ordered was a bit cold, so the cheese wasn't melted. I'm not sure where the kindness has gone, but it surely wasn't in this establishment. With all things considered, one would imagine the interactions could be just a little more pleasant when people are trying to support the business. Won't be back.

Best burger I've had in a long time. Tasty, hearty, filling. Reasonable.

I've been coming here literally for decades, first with my parents and now with my husband. We never leave Berkeley without coming here and sometimes make the trip because of a strong craving!

The Persian burger has been a staple favorite without a doubt. The bread is toasted to perfection and the meat so juicy and flavorful (also is halal!). Huge portion size so we usually split one among 2 of us and then take another one for later :)

They did recently increase their prices but understandably so with current circumstances. Still well worth it!

As much as I enjoy the Persian burger, I don't ever plan to eat here again. We ordered two Persian burgers and a French fries today. First of the all, the dude making the food had his mask pulled down, but he pulled his mask back on at some point. Secondly, we watched him prepare our lamb patties and other orders all while touching raw beef patties with his bare hands. I kept praying that he would stop at some point after touching those raw beef patties to wash his hands, but he never did. He went on to start cutting up burger buns and then our bread for our Persian burgers. I asked my hubby what we should do and he simply said he wasn't surprised that he did that and that's just what you get when eating out. So fine, we already paid and we were both hungry. Took these to the car to eat..the Persian burger was still good, but not as good as I remembered..maybe because I saw how unsanitary it was made. Anyway, as we were eating the last few fries, we found a piece of metal from those scrubbers. Omg, that was the last straw for me. Dude, eating fries that fried with scrubbing material. Geez.
