The Best Burgers in SF
If you are tired of California cuisine (a.k.a. Ahi tuna towers or cabbage wrapped lentil loafs) you may be in need of a delicious American burger. Although burgers are offered on most menus, the following list provides a quick guide to some of the best, locally made places to grab a burger.
Flippers: Located in Hayes Valley, flippers has been around for a long, long time. With an outdoor patio and a lovely spot to break from your shopping, try the Clipper Flipper. With avocado and bacon, you'll be reminded that you still are in California after all.
Barney's Gourmet Hamburgers: Barney's is a lovely hamburger spot in Noe Valley as well as locations in Berkeley, Oakland, Marin and Southern California. With a front garden filled with willow trees Christmas lights and heat lamps, this is the place to be for an early evening burger. Started in 1978, going to Barney's means you are supporting old school SF burger gurus.
Burger Joint: With a new location at the SF international airport, The Burger Joint is obviously doing something right. Check them out in Lower Haight or the Mission.
Johnny Rockets: Located in the Marina and on Fillmore Street, Johnny Rockets has officially mastered the 1950s American Diner feel. With long counters, jukeboxes and sparkly vinyl bar stools, grab a malt, put on some Buddy Holly and venture back in time
