East Bay Burgers, Fries and Shakes

Boy did I make a mistake when I suggested to my wife that we take our young kids and find a nice clean place to enjoy some of America's favorite foods. We've been to all the affordable things in our area (Berkeley/Albany/ El Cerrito) and wanted to venture out a little further.

I checked your reports on Fenton's and not even a mention of the food!. That's not a good sign! The discussion about the their ice cream is disheartening. We have a Johnny Rockets budget so some of the alternative places mentioned aren't possible.

I would like to find a place that has the looks of a soda foundation, that's clean, affordable, serves fresh food, that's not a chain and has a history. It would appear that's to much to ask in the Claremont/Montclair/Oakland area?

I don't see anything on the Claremont Diner which means it must stink or its gone?

Should we just bag it and go to Fenton's anyway. I want it all but fear I must compromise. If we had the time and patience we'd BART it to SF.

Thanks Chowheads.
