6 Mouthwatering San Francisco Burger Joints + Prices


The power of a perfectly executed burger can go a long way and often leads to a serious food coma. Well, it’s time to put you under because San Francisco’s burger scene is literally no joking matter. We mean, there is a serious culture behind it.


Nopa // 560 Divisadero Street

Nopa’s grass-fed burger tops all sorts of hype, including ours. This patty deserves all the credit, thick and juicy but not runny or fatty. Grilled to utter perfection is exactly what the doctor asked for. — $17


Sam’s // 618 Broadway

Thanks to the only food critic we trust… Anthony Bourdain, this Northbeach late night spot is no longer a secret to the locals. Now, good ole’ Sam’s frequents customers from all over the world and rightly so, have you tried their delicious double patty cheese burger? What are you waiting for? Also, this spot is cash only. — $12


4505 Burgers & BBQ // 705 Divisadero

Order yourself the “Best Damn Grass-Fed Cheeseburger” next time you’re at their brick-and-mortar location in NoPa. This midday pick me up is great for a workday lunch session while roaming around to find a delish bite in under an hour.  — $13


Marlowe // 500 Brannan Street

A San Francisco staple, a trip to Marlowe burger once, twice, five times in a week doesn’t seem silly. We can’t get over the variety on the menu and how much is being offered. If we were you, we’d get the famous Marlowe burger — made with juicy grass-fed patties and topped with their very special caramelized onions. All homemade of course. — $16


Umami Burger // 2184 Union Street

We wouldn’t call Umami Burger a chain just yet, after just one bite you’ll know exactly that this “chain” is unlike others. Of course, sinking your teeth into their classic Umami Burger is no brainer. Dressed with parmesan frico, shiitake mushroom, roasted tomato, caramelized onions — Wanting to take a couple home can be dangerous. — $10 - $15


Trick Dog // 3010 20th Street

With an already impressive flight of eclectic cocktails, one begs the question, “how’s the food?” Well their ‘Trick Dog’ burger takes the cake… or bun. Served on a hot dog-style bun with the works, the house-ground patty is the length of a hot dog. We’re already salivating. — $10
