Hamburgers Restaurants in San Francisco

Even the old-fashioned hamburger got touched by the magic wand of California cuisine. Zuni Cafe leads the pack with its tried-and-true house-ground burger topped with the original pickled zucchini slices.

Luka's, across the bay in Oakland (and easily accessible by BART), earns the number two spot, because devouring a grass-fed burger at Luka's reminds me time and time again (when I've forgotten) that meat is absolutely delicious. You'll never feel overly stuffed and you'll never want to share.

But no one said San Franciscizing a burger came cheap. Bix, for example, sells its truffled pecorino cheeseburger for $27.50 (a divine burger, it is).

When you crave a down and dirty burger, quench with a pint at Zeitgeist followed by a burger and homefries at the picnic table. Tip: the outside tables against the far wall (with the pink elephant mural) retain the sun the latest in the day. Balk all you want at know you want it after a hard day's work of playing (i.e. skiing, kayaking, biking, walking) in the Bay Area.
