The Best Buffalo Burger Around!! – The steaks and burgers at the Bulls Head Restaurant are fantastic. The Steak Sandwich is awesome and the Onion Rings are greasy and a heart attack waiting to happen. The main attraction are the Buffalo Burgers. Bulls Head touts the Buffalo meat as having much lower cholesterol making it a healthier alternative to the cow. You can order the buffalo patty in either 1/3 or 1/2 lb variations as a substitute for any of their burger sandwiches. You can also order the buffalo steak which I must admit I have not tried. Even the fish sandwich is nicely prepared. For its value, Bulls Head serves quality food. The downside to the restaurant is that if you are looking for ambiance, this not the place for you. I have eaten here many a time and have yet to have a bad meal here.
Item Ordered: Since Bulls Head offers Buffalo Meat, I decided to order the 1/3 lb Buffalo patty with fresh garlic and American Cheese. Charcoal Broiled
Taste: Very nice and light burger. The Buffalo meat is not too gamey and tastes fresh. An Excellent choice
Value: For $9.20 it is worth the experience of trying Buffalo Meat. An Excellent Sandwich and while a little pricey, you won?t have the opportunity to try Buffalo Meat anywhere else in the area.
Good but Overpriced – I've been going to Bullshead for years regularly, and the food is generally pretty solid, but nothing spectacular. The burgers are inconsistent, one day they can be unbelievable, the next day they can be dry and average if the meat isn't prepared well. Aside from the burgers, which are on the high end price-wise, but reasonable, the rest of the restaurant is terribly overpriced. I do not suggest getting a steak, particularly a filet because the cuts of meat they use are consistently very fatty and certainly not worth the 30 dollar price tag. The chicken breast used as a sandwich and a dinner is often dry and rough to the point that it doesn't seem that the chicken used is as fresh as the other meat. The salad bar is good, but overpriced. This is generally a good restaurant, but stick with the burgers. Otherwise you might have a bad experience.
Best tasting hambugers – Don't let the reviews on service keep you from trying these hambugers. I get off the couch, in my car- and drive over twin peaks to get the best burger ever. The Hawaiian is amazing-with added crunchy bacon. The meat is superb-juicy. In defence of the restraunt, I rather take it to go, and don't expect I would be as comfortable as eating it back at home. It's a burger joint, I don't expect fine dining. I dine at the finest restraunts in the City, however, I don't expect the staff to provide great "table service" here. What I do get is a fierce hambuger. The reviews expecting great table service are irrelevant.... ITS A GREASY SPOON-GOOD GRIEF. They have quality beef that tastes great.
damn good – Buffalo meat burgers are too good to be true. Try it. Place is a diamond in the rough. Warning Burgers can be HUGE and DELICIOUS
Best Hamburgers in San Francisco – Bullshead in the West Portal District has THE BEST hamburgers in San Francisco. They have yummy thick fries and a good salad bar. It isn't a fancy place, but the food is delicious. The wait staff is friendly too.
Not worth the hype – First I'll say our server was an adorable young girl who did her best to make sure we were happy. She didn't, however, have any control over the cook, which she needed. They specialize in Buffalo and though it's healthier than beef or chicken it's an aquired taste. I had the hawaiian burger which sounded great... sounded. The food was over priced and for lack of better elloquency just didn't taste good. Every peice of silverware at the table had to be replaced including the knifes brought with the appitizer due to dried crusted food... and this is all on its grand opening day. I understand that nothing is perfect right out the gate, hell when Disney Land opened it's doors for the first time NOTHING worked, but at least Walt had the decency to clean the knifes and forks before he set the table.
Excellent Burgers in Average Setting – The Burgers are absolutely OUTSTANDING!!! *Didn't have regular burgers but rather Buffalo* The meat was juicy hand-made patties served with the normal fixin's. Asked for one medium and one medium well- go figure, a burger joint that actually cooked to temperature and did it right!!! Went in during off-time afternoon hours and despite only one other table, service was just so-so. Ice tea sat empty for a while and no one checked back until time to clear the plates. Fries were great tasting and looked hand-cut... but were served luke warm. Burgers were in the $7-$10 range but are well worth it!!!! Hop on the K, L, or M Muni line, get off at West Portal station and walk around the corner for one of the best burgers ever!!!
Burger and steak fare served up family-style in West Portal. – In Short
Faux brick and wood paneling make up the decor. Diner-style tables, a meat counter and a salad bar are presided over by an enormous mounted bull's head. People come here for the burgers--served in half- or third-pound patties with all the fixings. Buffalo meat provides a popular--and healthier--option. Just don't expect diner prices here: Burgers with toppings like cheese and avocado can clear $11, and the small salad bar (no sharing allowed!) costs $6.95.
TERRIFIC FOOD! – Don't believe the woman that wrote the editorial review. She doesn't know what she's talking about! The food here is wonderful and the prices are comparable for the quality you get! Fresh burgers and steaks with wonderful toppings and a side of fresh cut fries! mmmmmm! And the salad bar is one of the best i've seen in a steakhouse. It's a salad bar buffet and if you get it with a burger, it's only an addictional $3.50. Just try this place once and you'll see!
This is a fabulous find, great hambugers, excellent steaks, good service. Five of us ate for $90.00! We all loved it. Don't tell anyone else.
