I don't know what these people are putting in their burgers, but these are the best I've ever eaten. I remember hearing about places where the meat is so good, why bother with the condiments. That describes CCC to a T. Outstanding. Huge portions. Friendly staff. My only complaint is the small interior. My family went (2 adults, 3 children) and we felt like we were sitting at a table for 2 instead of 5. Plus, we felt like we were on top of the people sitting behind us. Who cares tho... I just take-out instead. :D

If you're looking for a great burger with a ton of fries then yes, the CCC is Brookline's best choice, just don't head in as a party of 2 and expect to get seated. Yes, even if it appears there are 4 tables available you'll be greeted with "those are being saved for parties of 4... you can wait at the bar." Now I don't blame the girls working there, they're just towing the line, but the owner needs to redo his calculations on return on investment vs. customer satisfaction. Afterall, he is in the food service business...

The lobster rolls are good and there is an extensive bar menu -- lots of salads with everything under the sun on them and plenty of burgers and sandwhiches, all named after sports greats. They do a decent brunch as well. It's a good spot to grab a meal when you're looking for sports bar atmosphere.

I've tried the burgers at Bartley's in Cambridge, CitySide in Cleveland Circle, Tavern on the Water in Charlestown, the Irish pub in Washington Square (all good), and numerous other places, but I keep coming back to the Coolidge Corner Clubhouse for the best burgers in the area, despite the noise, sinking banquette, and lack of light. For some reason, this cacophonous hole in the wall (but not nearly as uncomfortable as Bartley's), surrounded by sports tv's, still provides terrific burgers and mounds of curly fries, satisfying deli sandwiches, a huge mixed veg/salad plate, and chicken fingers for the kids--all at a price that leaves something for a movie at the Cinema across the street. Portions are large. Service is quick and accommodating, if not always attentive to water glasses that need refilling. Some hours and days seem better than others, especially for the salads and other entrees, but for a burger, you'll never go wrong here. However, don't bother with the lobster roll in summer--save that for a shack along the sea, IF you can find one around Boston.
