I've been coming here since the joint opened and I can honestly say that the quality and taste has been consistent.... when I say medium rare, I get medium rare! And the grilled onions are always done to perfection! I send all my people here when they crave a burger.

This was more like a slightly upscale McDonalds than the hand made patties I'm used to when I opt for a burger (ala GBK) Sweet potato fries were the only saving grace. Ignored by 2 members of staff before being served..I left full but not satisfied. I won't be returning.

I happen to come across the restaurant when my first two choices were either missing or there was a long wait for a table.

It's a burger joint. And it's worthy of the hype. It's exactly what you expect when you're looking for a - to repeat - burger joint. A pornographic burger, delivered from the hands of someone you can see it has made a million burgers in his life. I loved it.

Ok. It aint the end all be all of burgers but for the money (considering the location) it wasnt bad. A decent sized burger cooked to order with your choice of cheese. The fries were good (not great) as well - thick, with the skins left on. The place had a 50's - 60's dinner kinda vibe going on. It... More

Having read many reviews on tripadvisor and other travel sites about the burgers at the Joint we just had to give it a go!!. It was a perfect stop off on our way to the Haight (MUNI #7 bus). We got there a little after 2 pm so there was nobody in the place. (whih of course gives one hesitation)... More

One of the best burgers in SF. Prices are a bit high, but quality is solid. Fries are very yummy.
