    One of the best (if not best) hamburger in SF. BOOM. There, I said it. It's a simple grind & well seasoned. With that said, you don't need to add anything else to this burger, you animal.

    Pro tip: you can eat your food next door at the Tempest! The burger and chicken & waffles were great, but the stars of the show were the potato skins filled with pork belly, topped with quail egg!

    they give enough garlic fries to feed you, your dogs, your dogs' friends, and your dogs' friends' dogs. dont feed dogs fries though, so find some friends to share with. oh, and their burger is yummy.

    Had the chicken in waffle with the sriracha syrup and all I've gotta say is I'll be back. The food is great, the place smells awesome, and they're open super late.

    Get the Broccoli and Cheese Croquettes - I don't even like broccoli that much but I loved this small dish. It comes in this amazing cauliflower / cheese sauce and resembles mac-n-cheese balls

    Falafel patty melt...what a concept. Excellent. Would've ordered the burger because it sounded great but wanted to eat on the move.

    It might be the best burger I have ever had... and I am big on burgers. Place feels shady and underground which actually gives it more of authentic rough feel. Super cool

    Very friendly staff with good recommendations, you can have the daily special if not sure what to have. Be patient long queue but worth it 👍🏻

    This place is GREAT! The chicken sandwich is phenomenal - and they have a nice little rotating menu. From that we got the hush puppies...which as a girl from the South, I really enjoyed!

    The fresh coconut juice is an actual coconut, which rules. The chicken sandwich and garlic fries are wonderful. Great late night spot.

    Great late night food. Falafel and potato skins with pork belly was bomb. You walk up and order. They have Square. I hope to be back.

    Best burger and open late! A little hard to find though, it's down an alley near an iffy area of town. Go with a friend.

    The potato skins and rice crispy were delicious. No sitting area besides the next door bar. It's close to the intercontinental hotel

    I always think garlic fries are a good idea and then end up disappointed and wishing I had gotten regular ones. Not here, these were the best I've ever had.

    Idk why they bother asking how you'd like your burger cooked, but my box burger was cooked well done and still delicious

    Great burgers, the only downside is standing in the alley at night with drunks and hobos surrounding you.

    Now that that Adam Jo's Pork Sando is gone, the best play is the burger, which is sin on a bun.
