A San Francisco must!

I always visit Mo's when I travel to San Fran (from the UK), absolutely love the breakfasts, the staff are friendly and it has a really authentic feel to it. Make sure you go!

if you like burgers then this place is a must visit if you are in SF. flame grilled over a BBQ on a rotating griddle, a great view and smell to meet you as you enter the restaurant. served with various fillings on chequered paper in a basket with freshly cooked fries, whats not to like!

Food is very good. I like the menu on the wall. I like the format of order at the counter then they bring it to you. High ceilings are nice too. Coffee was good and very hot. Bathroom needs work and needs to be cleaned up. Also, shut the TV off. The sound is going in and out and it... More

Came here on trip advisor recommendation as a good diner near our apartment. Not quite what we expected, place was almost empty when we arrived at about 7pm and its very much got a cafe feel. The place filled up as we ate though, and food and service very good. Chicken pitas were excellent.

My GF and I were visiting SF from Tennessee. We walked by in the afternoon and saw folks lined up on the sidewalk to get it, so we decided to come back in the evening. We arrived around 8:00 PM and were seated immediately. I had beef brisket, and she had a burger. We drank a California Pinot Noir. Wonderful... More

While walking from Lombard Street to the Ferry Building, we wandered by this grill and noticed the crowd of people lining up out the door and down the sidewalk, waiting to be seated for lunch. Wondering what the fuss was about, I glanced through the window to see a rotating circular grill. Burgers and chicken kabobs were slowly rotating on... More

Nice clean burger place in north beach. Although burgers not the only item on menu, the two of us had fantastic burgers. Cooked to order, handmade burgers. Thick and juicy and messy. Sometimes the messier the burger, the better. Buns were fresh and excellent. We got soda, French fries, and burger, one plain, the other a tex mex. with tax... More

So glad we came across this place! We went in on a Monday morning for breakfast, and although the service was lacking a bit (place was busy, took around 10 minutes for anyone to acknowledge us, only one waitress working the whole place and you could see completed plates lined up and waiting to be delivered for several minutes).

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighborhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighborhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighborhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighborhood home.
