Nation’s was founded in the year 1952 by Russ Harvey who later partnered with Dale Power. The first restaurant was located at San Pablo Avenue where it converges with the end of San Pablo Dam Road.
From its flagship location, Nation’s has more than 20 locations in six counties, Alameda County, Solano County, Costa County and at Bay Area counties.
The ambiance that Nation’s gives, has a very warm, comfortable, 1950’s diner feel to it. The seating is quite limited.
The food, especially the burgers, are amazing and very tasty! It is very delicious, and the patty is very juicy. The homemade pies and breakfasts are also great.
The banana creme pie is a recommended menu as well as the Giant cheeseburger and have them with onion rings as they are very crisp and tasty.
The service, however, is subpar. The servers don’t engage that much but nonetheless they are polite and friendly.
