We met some friends for lunch around 12:30 PM waited approximately 15-20 minutes to be seated. I had phoned the previous day for reservations but was told that the restaurant only accepts reservations for parties of 8 or more. When we arrived the restaurant was more than ¾ full inside. The menu has a good mix of comfort foods including... More

We had this red head as a server and he did not once refill our water and on top of that he didn't properly take our orders. After taking our order he never once came to check up on us so when we needed something we had to waive down a random waitress. And to top it all off the... More

Everything is good, but my wife and I agree the onion soup is THE reason to visit Burgoo. We order every visit. Try it... or don't, because I hate waiting in line to eat ;)

We usually eat at Burgoo during our trips west. This time, family members dined there and brought take out to two of us -- a tomato bisque and a crab bisque, with two outstanding grilled cheese sandwiches. What a treat on a busy day.

You will likely have to wait to get seated but it is ohhhhh so worth it. Had corn chicken chowder and grilled cheese. My wife is mad she never got to go but it was worth the lecture as it is simply the best comfort food I've ever eaten!!! Sat at bar and had quick efficient service but quite frankly... More

I hear the French onion soup is amazing. And the grilled cheese sandwich is awesome. But I am giving 5 stars for the "Mushroom Medley Soup", filled with roasted wild mushrooms it is incredible. If it is in season, don't miss it. Service was good, staff friendly, and not too long of a wait.

We really enjoyed this spot. Yes there was a wait but they called us when our table wax ready. The atmosphere is cozy. Sandwiches and soup were all very good and the Mac n cheese delicious. We'll come back

I made a reservation for a large group of 12 for my BIRTHDAY. My friends and I were at Planet Bingo, 2 blocks away. We were running up the street and the restaurant gave our table away when they couldn't get a hold of us. They did not leave a voice mail! When we got to the restaurant, 15 minutes... More

We had a 40 minute wait which was ok - we went to a nearby bar. We were seated by the front door which was held open quite often by the folks in the lineup. Extremely noisy but when the food arrived, it was all worthwhile!!

Neighborhood Profile
South Main
South Main, or SoMa, is a neighbourhood in upswing. Inhabited by young humanitarian professionals in converted lofts and studio apartments, what was once an industrial centre is now a wellspring of vintage and eco fashion shops, contemporary sawdust-floor galleries, craft beer joints, and basement acting studios. All set to an Art Deco background with a strong blue collar sensibility underpinning each new pop-up and foodie trend, SoMa is on the rise.
