Do you know how hard it is to find a burger joint down on the Peninsula that serves local, 100% grass fed beef? Steak Out, a casual burger and steak joint located on Castro Street, the main drag in Mountain View, finally fills that void.
Ambience here is totally lacking – it’s a no frills beer garden where you order your grub and grog at the counter. After you find a seat on the large outdoor patio or at the few tables inside, your food is brought to you.
Fitbomb and I wandered here for lunch today and got a couple of bun-less burgers to eat al fresco.
I ordered the Jammin’ burger ($9.50) + extra patty ($4.00) and it came with house-made sweet bacon jam (yes, it has sugar in it), gruyere cheese, tomato, and pickles…
…and Fitbomb ordered a Roswell ($9.50) + an additional patty ($4.00) which came with bacon, cheddar cheese, jalapenos, tomatoes, and red onions. He asked for the BBQ sauce on the side.
Nope, there ain’t no lettuce on the burgers but you can add it on for $0.50. The beef was juicy, well-seasoned, and cooked the way we ordered it (medium-rare). We both enjoyed our meal but we wish they offered more add-ons. I would’ve loved to add avocado to my burger but it’s not an option – even though it comes standard on their turkey burger.
Some people may think paying $13.50 for a double-burger is kinda steep but quality beef ain’t cheap. We’ll definitely be back!
