Best Burger ever. Period. – This hamburger place is almost IMPOSSIBLE to find. But, once you find it, you'll crave it!!! The burgers are SO good, and they're cooked up unlike any other burger I've had before! The place is really, really small, and the staff are right there, you see how and where everything is cooked, and it's a pretty clean establishment on the inside.
Best Burger in Sacramento – The best burger in town. I've been going there since the late seventies when Ruth and her husband ran it and now under the new owners. I always get a double squeeze with cheese ( off menu) and a hot dog ( the dog is almost as big as the burger and they deep fry it), the chili in the winter is my favorite with a squeeze with cheese. Its made with Habenero Chilis, after the third bite your wiping the sweat off your forehead and the back of you neck.
What I like about the Squeeze is the quality of the meat and their bun. Unlike most big burger joints the bun breaks down before you finish, not at the Squeeze.
Best time to get there and sit in the front row is 11:00 A.M., early for most, but remember they won't start your order until you order it and it does take a while to cook it.
Back when Ruth and her husband ran it they had a fish taco on the menu, her husband had a small fishing pole set up so the line went into the drain on the floor. It had a sign by the pole that said "Quite fishing for sewer trout".
Best Joke on the wall was "I hope I die peacfully like my grandfather did, not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car".
Unbelievable Burger - Definitately the Best – The Squeeze w/cheese is one of the best burgers you will ever find. I travel a lot throughout California and have yet to find a burger that can compare to this one. The buns are Muzzio and are one of the best buns you could get. The french fries are made from real potato's, unlike the majority of places that you go to. The Squeeze Inn is a small place but there is plenty of seating in the back. Parking is harder to find than a seat. Although the place is not wheelchair accessible, there is a patio that works out well and the staff have no problem coming out to the patio to take your order. There are tables out back. Once you have one you will go back for more. My parents who live out of town try to stop there when they come down, with or without me. I have even put the number in my cell phone. You can always order ahead or get it to go. If you like a good burger you have to try this one. I have tried Nationwide, Jim Denny's and the other local favorites and they are no comparison.
Great burgers and homemade fries! – We read about Squeeze Inn online and had to try it. The place is a bit dumpy but the food is so good who cares. The people working there were friendly and fun! Had a bit of a wait for our food, we went right at lunch time and on a Saturday but it was worth it.
We got lucky and grabbed a few seats at the counter while our food was being cooked. Will go back again for sure...huge servings...could easily split a squeeze burger and share a large fry if you wanted too.
The cheese skirt was my favorite part of the burger. The cheese is allowed to melt down the sides of the burger and crisp up on the grill...almost like it is burned but not really. And if you order a drink in a med or large you get free refills!
Give it a taste you won't be sorry!
Delicious Little Dive – My co-workers took me here for lunch about two weeks ago and I was in burger heaven!
It's definitely a bit of a hole in the wall and they are not kidding when they say "Squeeze Inn". It was hot and crowded and the back porch seats had lots of flies but that is not why you come here. You come here for the greasy, huge, wonderful Squeeze Burger with a cheese skirt and handcut fries with skins!
Just call ahead (the wait can be looong, especially at lunch), pick up and go somewhere private where you can make a mess without everyone staring at you reveling in burgery goodness!
The best burger I have had anywhere hands down. Make sure you ask for that cheese with a skirt! They let it melt down onto the grill and it gets lovely and crispy and...wow, now my stomach is growling!
Best Inn The West – I have ate at hamburger places from Nebraska to Alaska, Montanna to Texas, and the bottom line is there is only one real hamburger place to eat, "The Squeeze Inn" in Sacramento, Calif. on Fruitridge Road, all the rest are just wanna be's.
Still going strong – My father, Ken Noblett, owned the Squeeze for 15 years before he moved. His food was legendary, and the currect owners keep up this tradition. The Squeeze is small town atmosphere, big city taste, and hometown kindness. The is no place like the Squeeze; either to eat at the counter, or grow-up behind the counter.
You will NOT leave hungry – If you have never been to Squeeze Inn...you MUST try it. It may be crowded inside, but there is plenty of seating out back. The Squeeze with Cheese is the burger to top. I have never found a better burger joint!
Best Burger in Town! =P~ – Although I have to agree with the previous review about the "Squeeze In" being small, the burgers were awesome. I've never actually had a cheese skirt and am still having a craving the day after. The burgers were superb, service awesome. I had a birthday party for my brother there with about 15 people (since it's his favorite lunch spot) and he loved it. They were super friendly and let us take our time even after the establishment closed. To be honest, I'm planning on going back there some time this week because I wish I had eaten more. Alas' there is only so much room in my stomach! Thank U "Squeeze In" for making it special!
A halo of cheese! – The cheeseburger actually has a halo of cheese around it- never seen anything like it before- have to see it to believe it. The atmosphere is very cozy, as the name suggests- just a counter with 10 stools with the grill on the other side. The smallest burger shack I've seen. The server and cook are very friendly and usually chit-chat with customers. Fries are good and the Taco was quite yum too. Greasy but oh-so-good!
