We were seeking a place for a quick supper after a long day of meetings and conference calls. Dino's was a short walk from our hotel, so we walked over. This is definitely 'fast casual' - order at the counter and they bring you the food. Very much a chrome, vinyl, formica 'diner' vibe. I ordered a 'San Francisco burger'... More

Not sure what to expect so I played safe and ordered the Greek Burger,fries and drink. Never obviously, read the full description. The burger came on a poppy seed roll/ 1/3 loaf? Bloody marvelous, they don't put the pickles and other green stuff on the burgers,its on the side where it belongs. Only negative no malt vinegar :(

Came to Dino's for lunch and was not disappointed. The menu features a good selection of "American fare" (salads, soups, burgers, sandwiches), Greek fare, and Italian fare. I settled for the crab {salad} sandwich, which came on grilled sourdough. It was delightful and the side Ceasar salad was fresh and tasty. I had a cup of lentil soup to top... More

This a very clean and comfortable hamburger restaurant. Patrons order at the counter and the food is brought to numbered tables. On the recommendation of a tripadvisor.com review, I ordered the crab sandwich with Caesar salad, no raw egg in the dressing. The sandwich was real crab, but it was chopped with a mayo type dressing, came on sliced tossted... More

The food is tasty and fast! I had the greek salad and it was very good and very large. We tried the fried zucchini and it was fresh and very good. Others in our group had burgers that they really enjoyed. Overall a good, quick place to eat and friendly staff.

My wife and I were visiting the Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge when we became hungry. A Trip Advisor "near me" search said Dino's Grill was highly rated and only two miles away. As my wife drove, I read of their crab sandwich. I ordered the crab sandwich. (When in Rome...) I thought it was great! It... More

I've grown up in Newark, so I've been able to see how the menu and chefs have shifted as the years have gone by. However, each time I go I am reminded of just how much I like it there. It's by no means fancy, but I go there for the casual atmosphere (you often find firemen and policemen grabbing... More
