Very nice little place that serves great burgers that are relatively cheap for the quality. You can add you own toppings and sauces for free. Really enjoyed our meal their.

I've tried the one in Castro before so I'd give it a go as I was in the area staying. This is neither a fast food burger joint or a gormet burger joint but somewhere in the middle. Burgers are awesome, meat is great with a self service toppings bar. Was fresh and lots of options, I mean lots. The... More

They make your burger. You add your own toppings at the salad bar. French fries were a little undercooked. It was ok.

We saw all the positive reviews and decided to give it a try. The Burger was ok, good meat and well sized. The bun had a weird smell and looked a bit as they just took it out of the packing. We had better burgers in California, in my opinion even In n Out Burgers taste better. But thats just... More

The many types of sliders are all good and the side salad was fresh. Floor to ceiling windows make for easy people watching on Market St while enjoying the food at a pub table. The wooden seats without backs may not allow too much chatting beyond finishing your meal.

Here's the deal -- this place makes excellent 1/2 lb burgers for about $7. The meat is high quality and fresh. The buns are good. The build-it-yourself bar has lots of cool add-ons. The atmosphere is very dinerish but the quality of the food blew us away. We'd come back. We'd definitely come back. Only black mark is that they... More

Ducked into this restaurant for watching a Warrior's game and enjoyed a superb charcoaled 8oz burger and excellent fries.Many locals there ordering different menu items.Extensive vegetable bar for ingredients to adorn one's burger a definite added plus. A 15 minute muni bus ride from around the corner on Van Ness to GG Bridge if this should fit your itinerary.

I liked the typical diner atmosphere, the staff was nice and it was quite clean. And the burgers... Delicious!! I think might have been one of the best burgers I ever ate. Perfectly cooked, all sides could be chosen. I can only recommend this place.

My wife and I stopped by this place after we caught a movie and were walking back to our hotel. It has the old 50's diner feel with the grill out in the open where you can watch the cook prepare your food however, you order at the counter and then take a seat until they call your number. The...

We stopped into sliders for a quick bite and a drink before a night out in the Castro. The sliders were delicious and the sangria was as well! Great service and fun atmosphere. I would return!
