The Best Burgers

So there might be quite a few lists for the best burgers in the city, but given how loved burgers are, I really don't see how you can list too many great burger places. Building the perfect burger is all about the ground beef, the bun and what you put in between. It's definitely a personal preference, but here are some places that I think we all can agree do a great burger!

You can't go wrong when you order a burger here


3640 Sacramento St, San Francisco, CA 94118

People might go here for the ambience and fancy food, but I go for the burger at the bar. It comes with it's own "bucket" of duck-fat fries and house-made aioli.

Long Bar & Bistro

2298 Fillmore St, San Francisco, CA 94115

This upper Fillmore bistro makes their hamburger patties fresh in-house and tops them with white cheddar!

Harry's Bar

2020 Fillmore Street, San Francisco, CA 94115

It's usually a safe bet that a bar knows how to make a good burger, but Harry's takes it a step above by making their burgers with Kobe beef and topping it with chipotle mayo.

Liverpool Lil's

2942 Lyon St, San Francisco, CA 94123

You can order a plain old burger here, but why not try the club burger that is on toasted sourdough bread and cut into those perfect triangles you loved as a kid?
