Flipside - handcrafted, half-pound, ground-in-house burgers and bodacious beer-battered onion rings ... vegetarian friendly [Lakeshore, Oakland]

Flipside has the soul of a classic 50's burger joint with zero kitcsh.

It is not the look. It is the sensibility. Solid burgers, fries and shakes (or malts if you prefer)

There was something about that burger that transported me back to Cinderella Burgers where we'd stop on the ride home from my grandmother's.

Flipside is not a destination but as good as it gets in a neighborhood restaurant

Lakeshore Blue burger on a signature classic bun- good. this place does onions well

Black and white shake - good but blended

Frings - half fries/half onions rings - ok fries ... onion ring hall of fame

Dill pickle - ok enough

Big burger ... big. Very generous portions.

Three bun/bread options including Texas toast. Eighteen topping choices. Four types of fries
