Fresh, locally sourced and ethical beef and the burger flavor is proof. Fries are fabulous, too! Very filling and worth a trip!

We stopped for lunch and left full and happy. My burger was delicious. My husband's cheesesteak was wonderful. It is a simple place doing simple things well.

It is not that BM is bad, but I find their burgers are overpriced and the service a little on the slow side. Across the street is the Kezar which is much more comfortable, has excellent burgers and is about the same price.

After going with friends to the California Academy of Sciences we went to BurgerMeister for dinner and drinks. We had a great time, enjoying our burgers and fries. I got a diet coke but the rest tried the beers on tap. I had the mushroom and swiss burger--very good--and onion rings--yummy. The dining area is not large but on this... More

Especially loved the garlic fries! Delicious .. Glad we stumbled across this. You have to order at the counter and they bring it to you. Great service all round.

It is a good place, small and quiet, we went there on a friday afternoon. Burgers are good, made with a lot of meat and great and fresh ingredients. If you are in the neighborhood, you should try it.

I went there for the first time today. I live close by and just wanted quick takeout. I do not understand the hoopla. The burger was mediocre. Beef was tough and the burger was overcooked. I ordered medium rare and got medium well. Burgers seem to be pounded flat. Beef has very little to no flavor. They say it's Neiman... More

Truly delicious burgers to be had here. The garlic fries were really good and pungent! Burgers well cooked- to your liking- and full of flavour.

Located right off the "N" train, this place offers a wide variety of burgers. Full of locals, it is a good value too. The staff is great, which is a big plus. There are plenty of burger places in town, and this one is fine if you are looking for something affordable and casual.
