Best Burgers in San Francisco

Burgers in San Francisco

Whether it is cheeseburgers, veggie burgers, or good old fashion “regular” burgers there are plenty of good spots in San Francisco. May is National Burger Month and I thought I would celebrate by sharing some of my posts I’ve written about one of my favorite food groups!

I wrote a post for Groupon’s San Francisco blog sharing a sampling of some of San Francisco’s Best Burgers, it was hard to narrow it down, but I’ve got some good ones in there!

I will eat a burger naked, but I do love them with cheese! If you feel the same, check out my post on San Francisco’s Best Cheeseburgers.

Two of my favorite burgers happen to be veggie burgers which I shared in my San Francisco for Vegetarians post.

I’ve also interviewed a tech geek obsessed with burgers. His passion was the genesis for Burgerator a geo-targeted app that helps you find the best burgers in your neighborhood. It takes all kinds, and we get to benefit!

If you aren’t in San Francisco, I still have you covered. I’ve created an AFAR Wanderlist dedicated to some of the best burgers in the country and the world!

If you are heading to Paris and find yourself craving a burger you are in luck, new burger shops are popping all the time. My pal Lindsey of Lost in Cheeseland is a fan and she has blogged about great burgers on numerous occasions. Check out posts on Blend, Le Camion Qui Fume food truck, her Best of Paris (Paris Burgers: Les Meilleurs) as well as the burger section on her resource page.

How about you? Have you had a great burger in San Francisco? Share! If not, what is YOUR favorite burger and where do you get it?
