“Great Burgers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2013

A small space with all the emphasis on natural beef with a number of combinations. The burgers are made to order. Shakes and malteds are quite good. More an order and pick up than sit in space.

“Big Burgers, fries and shakes!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2012

Phyllis' Burgers is a great place to go get a quick lunch when you don't want McDonald's or Burger King, but you DO want good food. The place is the size of a postage stamp, but I think there's seating for maybe 8 people. The food is really good. The onion rings are huge! And they also have veggie burgers for those of us who don't eat meat. The fries are good too. You won't get a bad meal here.

“Good Burgers”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2012

The burgers are quite good, though not up to the level of The Counter (Town Center, Corte Madera) or Barney's (San Rafael), which are both chains. Main problem with Phyllis is that it can be very slow, and there is extremely limited seating.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2009

Locally owned hamburger joint with good burgers, fries and onion rings. Limited seating. A good value. Alternatives include chicken and turkey burgers.
