Hegenburger: A Surprising Find in Oakland, CA



Double Hegenburger $5.45
Fries $1.25
Onion Rings $1.75
Ranch Dressing $.55

Near the entrance to the Oakland Airport you can drive right past this place. In a somewhat seedy strip, Hegenburger is immaculate on the inside. Everything is made of old laminate and wood paneling, but is spotless. Classical music plays on the overhead speakers.

The burger is served neatly wrapped at your table in a neat little red and white basket. The burger patties come with your standard lettuce, tomato, onions and pickles. Mayo is the lone condiment but you can add mustard or ketchup at your table.

The burger was very good. Just the right balance of fresh tasting beef and American cheese. It was hard to get my mouth around the stack. Fries were thin and hot, but nothing special. I liked the onion rings a little better. Small, battered, thin, crisp, and hot.

I really liked this comfortable old shoe of a place.
