darla is the best! – I go here at least once a week for brunch with my roommates and friends. Darla is like the fun aunt, always making us laugh. I always get a veggie scrambled omelette that comes with toast and home fries and the coffee is delicious! The portabella mushroom sandwich and the veggie burger is amazing too for my fellow vegetarians. And of course, after being completely stuffed in food coma heaven, your check comes with a brownie. A very very yummy brownie.
Burgers & Brews & Breakfast – We just went there for the first time in a couple of months. We're so glad that Darla hasn't changed it too much. She keeps the best burgers in town on the menu and keeps adding interesting and new omelettes and other dishes to keep your attention. The place is small (about 50 total seats inside and outside) but the service is really good. Local beer from Berkeley was really fresh, good and cold. My burger had the best bacon I've ever had. My girlfriend had the chicken apple sausage omelette and raved about it all the way home. Darla changes the artwork from local artists all the time. The newest is from a local quilter that uses some very bright colors and patterns that really catch the eye. The restaurant is clean and well kept and a nice place to bring even kids. We paid $25 for two (one breakfast and and one lunch) so it's somewhere in the middle for pricing. WELL WORTH THE MONEY FOLKS. Don't take my word for it. If you happen to be in the neighborhood, drop in. You'll be pleased.
Darlas is delicious! – Very good place..... sausage for breakfast are patties ... tasted like they were home-made.... great french toast with bananas and strawberries... even had two kinds of syrup. The crab benedict was tastey as well. Our server was one of the nicest people to ever work in a restaurant... she was a pleasure. Lastly they give you free tasters of brownies when you are done.... everything there was done right!
NOT possibly the best burger in town – OK the reason I went in was cause the sign sold me, "possibly the best burger around"! what a crock of (please add appropriate word here). The food was edible and mediocre but not great like the sign says. very misleading. the service was poor...everyone from the server to the cooks looked like they hated their job. poor ambiance. I would not recommend.
three stars – there's several breakfast/burger/lunch places in this area and it feels like i've tried them all. Nothing to me stood out about Darla's, but i wouldn't advise you not to go there. try it if you're feelin the menu.
delish! – we've been in san francisco for a couple days and hadn't found a great place to eat yet. we've heard about all the good food in the city, but weren't really impressed with the places we'd been to UNTIL we headed over to golden gate park and ate lunch at darla's. awesome! we felt like we were home... colorado. the burgers were pretty darn good and the breakfast was delish as well. we told the waiter we were going to the cliff house for dinner, he didn't recommend the place, but we loved the food there and the VIEW! he was super friendly tho. darla's is pretty darn good. worth checking out!
Fantastic Food, Friendly service, great prices....can't beat it! – We called to see if they could handle 28 people and they said they could. Our group took awhile to all arrive, but the owner and staff were friendly and patient. We had a number of kids and they were great about getting those orders in, and served, first. Everybody was happy with their food and many raved about their burgers. Mine was fantastic and seved sans bun just as requested. The total bill came out to be less than $10 a person, which was a pleasant surprise. My sister wanted something friendly, inexpensive, and good for her rehersal dinner....and that's just what she got. It's too bad most of us were from out of town, otherwise I know we'd all be back.
Best breakfast ever - Crab Benedict! – Darla's Crab Benedict is the best breakfast I've had in any restaurant anywhere. This is what motivated me to submit my first-ever restaurant review.
Poached eggs had an elegant swirl from the way they were placed into the water. Fresh Dungeness crab is a San Francisco specialty that always appeals to me. The English muffins were toasted just right, and the hollandaise had just the right balance. It was served with fresh fruit and real potatoes. Weekend brunch on the patio on a sunny day couldn't be better.
The rest of the menu is very good (fresh blueberry pancakes, for example), but the Crab Benedict was outstanding. I was only disappointed twice--once when they ran out of crab because I arrived around noon, and once when they said it was only available on weekends (that might depend on the season).
Darla's is where we take guests to show them what we like about San Francisco.
Best Burger /Breakfast place in the Sunset!!! – I've eaten at all the other breakfast/burger places in the Sunset and find Darla's to be my restaurant of choice. Darla's has the tastiest burger(other places didn't cook the burger right), tasty fries, delicious breakfasts and good coffee. Other breakfast places may be cheaper(but gross and greasy) but Darla's has great service, it feels clean, the food is yummy and fresh and it's consistent. The prices are reasonable and having Darla serving you is priceless. I love the free brownie they serve you at the end of the meal!
Definitely not the "Best burger around" – Although the waitress was very friendly and the little brownie on the tab was cute and not bad itself, the rest of the food was well below what I would consider good. I ordered the house burger, and it was flavorless and very thin. The vegetables on the burger didn't taste fresh and the potato salad that came with the meal had too much mayonnaise and not enough potato. Needless to say, I was disappointed.
