The food that can be eaten anywhere at any time, if it's good
Is it American food? Is it German food? Where was the first burger made?
According to Julian Canlas, who is a food blogger at Twisper, "the hamburger is probably most often associated with the USA. This is no surprise as it has become somewhat of a staple in that great nation. However, the story of the creation of the hamburger (one of many stories) is that the hamburger was brought to America by German immigrants from (surprise, surprise) Hamburg in the early 20th century. As a result, you would expect the best burgers to come from either America or Germany."
When it comes to burgers, everyone has a different opinion. For me, it doesn't matter where the burger comes from as long as it tastes good.
I don't know about you, but the burger is one of my favorite food. It is one of the foods that I can eat every single day, along with Margherita pizza and tiramisu.
But, I'm not talking about just a burger but a good burger with a thick juicy patty, cheddar cheese, and a little bit of spicy sauce. And, of course, a soft but delicious bun like a cloud.
It’s very difficult to say what makes a perfect burger, simply because there are so many different variations of the simple beef and bread sandwiches. Nowadays, every place around us makes a burger. However, for a burger lover like me, it is very important to find a place that makes good burgers.
For all of these reasons, this wasn’t an easy list to make for me. However, here are the two best juiciest, crispiest burger places in San Francisco, based on burger lovers' recommendations.
1. Super Duper Burger
Step into any Super Duper Burger, and you’ll notice we’re different. From our famous (free) house-made pickles to the hand-painted signage, to our cheerful staff, we build our restaurants like we build our burgers—sustainably, locally, and with an unwavering commitment to quality. We work with local farmers and food producers, designers, sign painters, and artisans because it reduces our carbon footprint, and, frankly, because they’re some of the best in the world. We source our ingredients locally (organic, non-GMO, or all-natural wherever possible), we make our food from scratch, and we're proud of every single item that comes out of our kitchen. - Super Duper Burgers
Recommendations based on customer reviews:
- The meat is juicy, their toppings are always fire, and their pickles...chef's kiss!
- The garlic cheese fries were absolutely delicious.
- The veggie burger was surprisingly good, tasted very fresh, and somewhat healthy.
- The sauces they put in their Mini Burger and Super Duper burger are great.
Price: On average, it's $25 - 30 for two people.
Location: 721 Market St San Francisco, CA 94103
2. Pearl's Deluxe Burgers
We proudly serve natural, grass-fed beef burgers, turkey, veggie, and buffalo burgers. We do classic hamburgers, making the organic, grass-fed beef patties by hand. All our meat is of the highest quality; our buffalo burgers are so lean--they are actually lower in fat and cholesterol than chicken or most fish. We also make our own onion rings and cut them by hand. Many items on our menu are based on old family recipes from my mother, like our chili and the dressing for our Asian chicken salad. We have quick service, but food is definitely home style, and fresh! We don't start grilling until you order. Our most popular item on the menu is the Bula Burger, which won Best Burger at the San Francisco Great American Food and Music Festival. The Bula was inspired by a trip to Fiji. Bula is similar to the word aloha. - Sylvia Y., Owner of the Pearl's Deluxe Burgers
