Looking for the best damn burger in San Francisco. And enjoying the hell out of the fries we find along the way.


I’m looking for a burger that has some bite, but remains strong and solid. I don’t want the meat to fall apart, but an overall messy burger that drips juices down my arm is perfectly acceptable. I like my meat medium-rare, no onions and no mustard. I know its a crime, but hey I’m the one eating it – not you! All other condiments are welcome to sit on top of my meat. I want the outside of the meat to have a touch of that burned, grill flavor and the inside to be juicy, soft and pink. Did I mention juicy?

Here’s my Yelp Profile if you’re interested in what else I like.
