Burger and Fries in SF, $10?

I see a couple active threads about finding the best burgers in the city. I'm partial to NOPA, but I've tried and enjoyed a few of the ones on the list.

However, most of these come in a bit of a higher price point, and are often at some fairly nice restaurants, some of which are not easy to pop into for a quick bite.

What are some favorites in the city for a quick casual burger? Let's say, in the neighborhood of $10 (or less!) for a (cheese)burger and fries?

People often praise Burgermeister, but I find I'm not a fan. I've heard Roam's pretty good, but I've never been. Gott's (Taylor's) may fit the casual bill, but I find it a bit overpriced for what you get. I went to Bill's Place not too long ago, thought it was decent.

Thoughts / suggestions?

  1. Mo's in North Beach. Some of their other dishes are pretty good as well.

    Never was a big Burgermeister fan either. Had high hopes for Gott's (Taylor's) when they opened but they turned out to be a gigantic overpriced disappointment. I'd rather go across the Embarcadero to Americano and pay twice as much for a far superior burger.

    1. Harry's Bar - but they are just over the limit at $10.95 for their burger & fries.

      1. Burger Joint burgers are really pretty good and definitely fit your budget. They also get the sides (and beer) right.

          I very much like Burger Joint, but they have a specific style. Thin patty, lots of flame kiss, thus kind of bitter. If you're a black coffee drinker, you'll enjoy BJ.

            Nailed. I like my coffee dark and gnarly. And I do like the juicy char on their patty.

              Yeah. My GF hates them, she hates coffee.

        2. Rosamunde on tuesday makes an incredible burger for $6 (no fries)
          Broken record is around $10

            That Rosamunde burger is awesome. Great way to play hooky from work, a burger from Rosamunde and an afternoon at Toronado. Been a while since I've been, tough to get to for a weekday lunch . . .

          2. Super Duper: $7.00 for burger w/cheese + $2.00 for fries.
