When you are tired of all the other restaurants at the mall and just want a good burger, head to Gordon Biersch. So much better than the other burger places. The space is industrial and I believe they brew their own beer on site.
Burgers are cooked to perfection and easily large enough to share.
Gordon Biersch is a restaurant/brewer that knows how to do it right. I'm typically not impressed by "upscale" brewpubs, but Gordon Biersch offers great brew (especially the Marzen - sorry, no umlauts!), and tasty food lovingly prepared and in substantial portions. My favorites run to the seared ahi (love it wherever I can get it), and Gordon Biersch's incredible meatloaf (Believe it - this is the food of the gods!), but anything on the menu is worth a go, especially steaks.
Pros: beer, food
