The place could use some organization and a good cleaning. At first I wasn't sure I wanted to eat here. We both ordered burgers which were very good and not overpriced.

As the title says, it has really good burgers and fries. I had the bacon 1/3lb burger and I can't say I was still hungry after eating it. My wife had the mushrooms one and it was really good too. The service was really friendly even thought we arrived 15 minutes before their closing hour.

The title of my review pretty much says all you need to know. Whether you get the 1/3 or the 1/2 pound burger, you're eating quality beef char-grilled to order. Burgermeister is SF's underdog burger spot, perhaps not as satisfying as the classic diner-style Pearl burger, or some of the best gourmet burgers in town (i.e. Nopa), but if you... More

I am a gluten free vegetarian and I love their gf veggie burger and salad. The GF bun was ok but crumbled apart like most do. My kids ate the burgers and fries and enjoyed them very much. You order at the counter and grab a table which can be difficult at peak times.

excellent juicy burger..cooked to perfection with crispy hot fries. If you are going to indulge in a 900 calorie burger (yes people, that is how many calories in a 1/3 lb. burger with a bun. ) I had the mushrooms and cheese..all perfect. HIGHLY recommend for a burger craving.

Very good burgers, shakes, fries and even have beer on tap. Not much atmosophere but staff is friendly and helpful. Don't go here in search of ambiance but if you're hungry and a meat eater, this could work well for you.

A little different from the typical American hamburger place. Food was fresh and french fries were crisp. A convenient stop for a quick lunch/ dinner or snack.

Our burgers were served red and runny, and came back slightly less red and runny when we sent them back.

alright, so yes it is pretty expensive, but this is San Francisco, pretty much everything is expensive. My sister in law lives a couple houses up from this restaurant and we have visited there twice. Both visits were good. I like the gourmet options for the burgers and their shakes and malts are yummy too, it can get pretty packed... More
