Burgers are simple, right? Fresh ingredients, emphasis on high quality ground beef and a good-tasting bun. Pearl's has this all, with a simple menu. Juicy burgers, which can be a bit messy. Small local place, and you can add a beer/drinks or onion rings/fries. On one hand, it is no-frills that can be crowded with too little seating. On the... More

This is a small, local place with a few tables inside and a few outside (right on Bliyhedale). It is a block or two from the square so pretty much downtown. Their meat is locally sourced and organic -- and delicious. Hamburgers are made to order and very juicy. Plus, you can decide from a multitude of toppings/extras. They also... More

If you like large "juicy" burgers, then this is a place to try. However, much too much juice for me. Taste is good, buns are a little soggy. The in-store eating area is a little cramped. There seems to be a loyal following of customers, who must rate Phatburgers at a 4 or 5 as everyone has their own burger... More

It isn't large or fancy (kind of a weird place for a bathroom!), but the burgers were creative, delicious and expertly prepared. Highly recommended.

It's not fancy, there are just a few tables but this little hole in the wall place does great burgers, including buffalo and some top quality beef. Lots of different flavored shakes, sweet potato fries, chicken choices, etc. something for everyone. The burgers are delicious!

There has been an influx of burger restaurants the past few years in Southern Marin, but Pearl's remains my favorite. A dynamite juicy burger and great fries.

Husband and adult son love hamburgers, and they're tried 10-15 places from Mill Valley to Sausalito to Novato, and this is their favorite. I am pleased, as it's close to our home, moderate price, friendly staff, can call in advance for take out. Good selection of fries and deserts. The only place we go now.

Can't go wrong here... if you like burgers. A wide variety of burgers including chicken, turkey, buffalo and kobe beef. Nothing great, although Tyler Florence would disagree, but very good. Noisy place to eat at peak hours with limited seating. I usually get to go.
