Best burger in San Francisco?Page 1 of 1    
Aaaaah man I had a burger at Balboa in Cow Hollow on Monday and it was SO good.. I think that's the best place for a burger in town. Is it true that Gavin Newsom owns that place and sometimes still bartends there on occasion?

I don't know if Balboa is.. I'm assuming not because they'd probably advertise that in their menu, and I don't remember seeing reference to it..

....and I'm going to have to keep my eyes open for Joe's next time I'm there!

Try Val's Burgers in Hayward. Classic establishment, long-known for the best burgers in the east bay, and wicked milkshakes too. It's been there since the 1950's and it's still in business for a reason.....excellent food.


I couldn't agree less.

Sorry.

then again... that was about five or more years ago... Maybe it's changed... who knows. I'm not a person to carry grudges... I hope I'm wrong about it these days. If you try it and I am, let me know...

I'm shocked . . . shocked! to find out that San Francisco permits establishments to serve BEEF! Of all the environmentally unfriendly foods I can imagine, that's got to be the worst! Where is the civic consciousness, the sensitivity to our Planet? Long live Gaia!

fft, forget the burgers. Get a grilled eggplant focca sandwich from Mario's on Union and Columbus and be amazed! (Seriously it will change you)


Other than that I'd go to the Original Joe's


Original Joes invented "the Joe's Special", which is an omlette with hamburger meat in it

This is one of my favorite things! A lot of restaurants around here (bay area) serve it up now.

For hamburgers, besides Original Joe's...i like Kirks Steakburgers. I take my 12 year old nephew a lot there ... one of his favorite places of all time.
