Re: “Belly

My wife and I were thrown out of this restaurant by the well-known racist owner, Alice Woo. It's unfortunate because the burger with pickled cucumbers were good but the owner said she felt threatened by our black presence, refunded our money, and asked us to leave. This is no joke (I have the video). Apparently she is known for her racist behavior but we were not aware until after our horrible experience there. We are working with groups now to expose Belly and I hope whoever reads this actually witnesses how she treats black customers. I'm concerned she's going to threaten or throw out the wrong person and get this business, or herself, in very serious trouble.

Re: “KronnerBurger

Disappointed! Based on your review, I got a cheeseburger to go with grilled onions. The burger was quite good, but they forgot the cheese and placed one large onion slice, ungrilled, on the so-so bun. Sorry, I love good burgers, but KronnerBurger can do better for the price.

Re: “Lake Chalet

The best place to show off the loveliness of Oakland's urban nature, the eclectic-chic Oakland fashion scene, and the happy diversity of her residents.

Re: “Handlebar

Let me go out on a limb and state that this is probably a good burger. It could even be a great burger, and at $12 for a six ounce patty, it still appears to be conventionally raised beef, not touted as sustainable or organic or even with any non-cruelty standards applied to the raising and care of the beef, and wait-- I haven't even been charged yet for extra caramelized onions or jalapeños, much less any carbs or tater tots.

I don't mean to pick on Handlebar, but I'm just approaching the place as my wife and I did the other week. We saw the menu, realized that we would be spending nearly $20 apiece for a hamburger, fries and a drink, and we turned around and visited another joint. We all have noted that a lot of restaurants are saying that they buy local, organic, sustainable produce and meat, etc. etc. provide a living wage to their employees, blah blah blah...but it wasn't even stated as organic.

Handlebar is just another example of I've-got-cred-and- now-I-can-charge-the-asses-off-the-foodie-and- gullible. If the ingredients were organic etc., I would possibly consider the purchase, but for $40 I could head home, buy enough ingredients on my own, and serve 4-6 people a relatively decent and comparable burger. Yah, it may not be as good, but $12 is $12.

Hell, Barney's still delivers a decent sandwich for a lot less. Jus' sayin'.

Re: “Plum Bar

The fries and the artichokes are excellent!

Re: “Plum Bar

Fresh, homemade syrups; fresh juices; creative and knowledgable bartenders - it doesn't get any better than that.
