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?

    Wow the burger in the photo looks so good. It would be fun to travel across the country and try different burgers.

  3. I agree with Lindsey on the burger photo! It looks amazing! I love experimenting w/ my burgers but the hubs does not. Give him a regular cheeseburger w/ just mayo, ketchup and mustard & he’s good to go..LOL

  18. Yum, that looks good. I love blue cheese on a burger, it is the perfect combo.

  19. Esther JuLee says:

    we’re pretty obsessed with burgers and found some great ones in LA… not so much in Vegas. We’re hoping we can in SD, but it seems like it’s all about the Mexican food here! 🙂 I had an amazing burger in SF.. and now I cannot think of the name of the place for the life of me. 🙂 We were doing a west coast burger road trip.. and the two in Portland were awful.. but the one we stopped at in SF was amazing!

    1. Andi Fisher says:

      @Esther, I’ve had a couple of good burgers in SD, now it’s mine turn to try remember their names!

    My family loves burgers. It’s something we eat year round. Those San Fran burgers look ah-mazing!

  25. Jaime Nicole says:

    Your pics have me starving now! I am thinking burgers for lunch is a distinct possibility.

  26. No matter where I’m going, I usually want a burger sometime that week. They are my favorite food choice next to cheesy enchiladas. Would it be wrong of me to make a trip to San Francisco just to try one of these burgers?!?

    1. Andi Fisher says:

      @Tami, not wrong at all, I travel for food all the time!

  27. Penny Struebig says:

    Ok – now I’ll be craving a burger all day! Wish they would open a shop in St. Louis so I wouldn’t have to travel all the way to San Fran for one.

  28. Cara (@StylishGeek) says:

    I am one of those rare ones that is not too fond of burgers. I don’t know why, but my Hubby and kid certainly make up for my lack of this fetish. They love burgers!!! Thanks for sharing your references to the best burger joints. I will have to let them know to check it out!

    1. Andi Fisher says:

      @Cara, I don’t eat them all the time and I love all kinds, have you tried a veggie or salmon burger? Maybe you would like that better?

  29. Katie Ellis says:

    That burger in the picture looks so good. I love trying burgers at the different places I travel. I would love to visit San Francisco someday and try a burger there.
