3. Sam's

Sam's Website

618 Broadway Street
San Francisco, California
Country: The United States of America

Description: Anthony Bourdain claimed Sam's as one of three best burgers in the world. Well I am not sure if that would hold up in the court of burger critics around the world it's needless to say that this must be a pretty good burger. Classic burgers with char-grilled patties, melted cheese, and just the basics. If you believe Anthony then you should run over to this local icon as quickly as you can. If you are as fussy about your burgers as we are then I'd say this is a burger to grab when you're looking for the best absolute classic cheeseburger in San Francisco.

2. Zuni Cafe

Zuni Cafe Website

1658 Market Street
San Francisco, California
Country: The United States of America

Description: Zuni Cafe is a renowned San Francisco restaurant. They serve up inspired dishes that get the locals to rave and recommend it to everyone who visits. Zuni's burger is one of those dishes and comes served on focaccia. This has led to some controversy among purists, but I can assure you this still counts as a real burger. The beef is definitely present and buns vary so much that focaccia is definitely a suitable bun. The burger features dry-aged beef (that gets a lot of rave reviews), rosemary focaccia, Zuni pickles, aioli, and we'd highly recommend the Beecher flagship cheese + onions (which are optional). We haven't eaten this one ourselves yet, but there are mixed reviews which keep it from being our top in San Francisco. Consistency is key, but we'd highly recommend heading to Zuni to try out this local favorite.


NOPA Website

560 Divisadero St
San Francisco, California
Country: The United States of America

Description: The burger at NOPA features grass fed beef, cheddar cheese, and pickled onions to make up a gourmet burger with premium ingredients. NOPA's burger has received numerous accolades as being on of the best in San Francisco. The expert preparation to ensure the beef is seasoned + cooked perfectly, the cheese is melted just right, and that the buns are fresh have allowed NOPA to maintain its place at the top. NOPA's blend of juicy beef, sharp cheese, pickled onions, and pillowy soft roll make this burger a mouthwatering treat.
