With its good food, friendly service, fountain sodas, opportunities for neighborhood schmoozing, and hot dogs so good they're almost a sacrament, Great American Hamburgers & Pie Co is a Point destination in its own right.
It is hands-down the best burger for casual a la carte dining, particularly if you are lucky enough to be downing your lunch as a parade of old cars tootles through the tunnel, or a soccer game starts up across the street. The burger is hot, the bun toasted warm, the vegetables crisp and cold, the soda just plain syrupy-good--and everyone else in Great American is just as blissfully content as you are. Can there be a better way to dine?
Great American Hamburger & Pie Co. also offers what is the best hot dog you can experience. This is no wimp of a weenie: we completely transform the prandial experience by quartering the dog, griddling it lightly, and layering it on a toasted hamburger bun under a generous pile of the same crunchy-fresh "works" used for our delectable burgers.
Our breakfasts are irresistable, which is why I'm not writing about them. You don't need a jones for hot cakes available less than 2 minutes from downtown Pt. Richmond (although those great homemade pies may keep talking to you while you're trying to focus on your hot dog) and based on the usually fast moving lines, it's obvious the food is good if you drive past Great American during breakfast or lunch.
