Bullshead Burger or better

I'm looking for a good burger place for my friend and I to go before we both leave SF for new jobs. Very familiar with Gott's (Taylors), been to Ganim's, Burgermeister, Burger Joint, In N Out etc.

Would like a really really good juicy burger with good meat, delicious fresh not frozen fries. Wanted to try burger bar but that looks like it got kind of lousy reviews. Would not mind paying up to $20 but Spruce is too much. Went to Absinthe but that was lousy.

Was thinking Bullshead might be nice, has anyone tried this recently or is there a better place?

  1. I had the 4505 burger at the Real Eats fest in Oakland and it was excellent. The hamburger was high quality. They serve them at the Ferry Building Farmer's Market. Might also try Zuni.

    1. Based upon all the post-Bauer buzz I headed to Marlowe to try the burger and was not disappointed. Easily the best burger I've had in the city - a quick google will return piles of pictures and better descriptions than I can provide, but rest assured the burger is juicy and accompanied by the best of toppings and bread. The fries were also some of the best I've ever had - a great crunch, pillowy center, and great seasoning.

      That said, it's very different from the fast food joints like Gott's/In N Out/etc. so you may be looking for something different.

      Lark Creek Steak in the Westfield has a very decent burger in a pinch if you're in the mall and need a bite. It's not at the level of Marlowe but is fresh ground and delicious.

      1. Others to consider:


        Wayfare Tavern

        1. My vote is for Darla's on Irving.

          1. I thought the Uruguayan Essencia beef burger at Pearl's was excellent. Doesn't Slow Club's burger tend to get a lot of raves?
