San Rafael (Novato/Santa Rosa) - Phyllis' Giant Burgers ???

rworange | Jan 30, 2007 06:11 PM

The enticing smell of grilled onions lured me into this burger joint, but I was too full to try it. It looks great.

Is it? I mean, if it smells so good that you have to stop to check it out when even the thought of another bite will kill you … it’s gotta be good … right?

This review which has picture of the burger and restaurant says the buns are specially made locally. Given they have a Bordanave on the menu and I’ve seen (but haven’t tried) Bordanave bread in San Rafael groceries … I’m assuming that’s who makes their buns … right?

How’s the shakes and if you had to choose one, would it be mocha, peanut butter or banana?

Onion rings or fries … or neither?

The San Rafael location is the original and opened in 1981. They opened a place in Novato in 2006. Is the soft serve ice cream at the Novato location any good?

The website says they are opening in Santa Rosa this year.

Worth the calories?
